I was a little bummed that I didn't get these in time to properly celebrate Independence Day, but my neighbors are still lighting fireworks several days after, so why not keep celebrating!

Here's my (and my buddy's thoughts) of the new Mtn Dew Flavor: Star Spangled Splash!

Taste Test of Mtn Dew: Star Spangled Splash

Mtn Dew released patriotic sodas (red, white, and blue). My friend Gloria found them in the lower valley, and hooked me up. My friends and I tried each of them, and here is what we thought.

It's red, so you might think you're getting a version of Mtn Dew's popular Code Red flavor, but nope, it's different.

Star Spangled Splash to me, was a strawberry soda. Not bad, nothing new to my taste buds.

2nd Opinion of Mtn Dew: Star Spangled Splash

My buddy of 30+ years was the first to voice his opinion.

"It's like watered down crush soda, strawberry flavored. Crush, not Fanta! Fanta would make me want to dance." - Eugene T.


3rd Opinion of Mtn Dew: Star Spangled Splash

"Tastes kind of like a stale Baja blast. But hey, I'll give it to Mtn Dew for at least trying new stuff!" - Nathan S.
