I'm not sure what the specific rule is, but for the longest time we were not allowed to have caffeine in our Mountain Dew. I was told at the time a few things such as it not being allowed because it wasn't dark, or that it wasn't allowed because it was a citrus drink...

Regardless, we currently have 2 kinds of Mountain Dew. The normal kind and "Mountain Dew Energy" which contains caffeine though I understand it's still not the same recipe as that in the US...

So I don't know if the law changed, or if it's allowed because it's called "Energy" or something. I mean they've been selling green tea and shit like that with caffeine in it that isn't black for years.

I enjoy getting to the bottom of Mountain Dew.

Have you ever tried the Canadian variety?

If I had known about this I would've taste tested the MD Energy last time I was there. I'll have to try it this summer.

On a trip to Niagara Falls about... oh 11 years ago, on my first trip to the US, we bought a bunch of cans of Mountain Dew. Upon returning to Canada we did a taste test. Perhaps we were biased but we all seemed to think that the Canadian variety was better.

It's funny how differently the drink is portrayed here. In the US it's considered some sort of fuel for gamers and D&D players du to it's caffeine. Here we still use coke for that...

Basically any sport that you can put "Extreme" in front of the name.
