We’ve got great news for all those who missed out on the limited-edition Mountain Dew Maui Burst flavor. It’s back, and it’s back for good. Yup, you’ve read that right. Apparently, this coveted drink is so good that MTN DEW decided to make it a permanent flavor. Now, you’ve got no excuse not to get your hands on this drink!
Just in case you need a little refresher, this tropical beverage made its first appearance last fall. It was quite a bold move for the soft drink brand to release a summer-themed flavor in fall. But, evidently, it worked, and people loved it.
“Dollar General fans have always embraced the MTN DEW Maui Burst flavor with enthusiasm. Their excitement translated on social media and at the registers.”—Nicole Portwood, Vice President of Marketing, Mountain Dew
The pineapple-infused soda will hit the shelves again starting February 1st. And we’ve even got official confirmation from the brand itself via Instagram. So, yes, this means that we can enjoy it in time for summer. Now, who’s thinking of mixing this drink into their summer cocktails? We definitely are!
However, do note that the drink will remain a Dollar General-exclusive, just like its first release. Likewise, the retail price will remain at $1 for each 16-ounce can. A dollar for a taste of summer? Well, why not? If you have a dollar to spare, then there’s no harm in trying it. Besides, it’s definitely much cheaper than going on a tropical getaway. Here’s a fair warning, though: it’s pretty addictive.
Although the official restock will start on February 1st, some Instagram users have already spotted the drink on the shelves. Not to stir panic, but people are literally stocking up! So, what are you waiting for? Head over to your local DG store to grab a can or a dozen of Mountain Dew’s Maui Burst flavor.
No time to drop by your local DG store? No worries, you can still get yours here. In other news, Mountain Dew has also just released a Zero Sugar variant. So, if sugary soda is not your thing, then you might want to give this a try.
