The purple drink combines Mountain Dew Code Red, White Out, and Voltage!
What's red, white, and blue all over? Besides Old Glory, of course, we're actually talking about a fan-favorite soda from Mountain Dew. Can you guess which one?
That's right, guys—"Dew-S-A" is here! PepsiCo's bizarre purple drink is hitting store shelves this spring and it will be available for a limited time. The patriotic beverage was supposed to return last year for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, but the roll-out was scrapped due to COVID-19. Now we can enjoy it once again! There was no formal announcement of its return, but fans spotted it in the wild and took to the internet with their findings, so we don't mind. We like an element of surprise!
So what is Dew-S-A, anyway? It's a combination of three Mountain Dew varieties: Code Red, White Out, and Voltage mixed in one drink. Originally released in the summer of 2017, the elusive drink has maintained a cult following ever since.

Code Red is a tart cherry flavor, White Out has a fizzy citrus taste, and Voltage is a trio of raspberry, citrus, and ginseng. The result is a funky purple concoction and not totally unlike the King's Cup drinking game you played in college. Except, in this case, it tastes a lot better (and won't make you sick)!
In addition, the drink's launch also ties in with a charitable initiative. A press release reveals that PepsiCo is teaming up with DAV (Disabled American Veterans), a non-profit that assist military veterans and their families. Part of the partnership includes a $25,000 donation from the company.
So far, retailers like Wal-Mart and Dollar General are selling the special soda in packs of a dozen 12-ounce cans, but they've also been spotted at Kroger's Meijers, and King Soopers stores. Buy them now and snag a few for your Fourth of July BBQ—you won't be sorry!
