I’m sure many of you out there have had a long night playing video games, writing code, or performing other geeky endeavors that was fueled by copious amounts of Mountain Dew and Doritos chips. Those two snack items probably taste good in combination and if you are the sort of person with adventurous taste buds, you might like the new flavor of Dew that the company has been testing.
The new flavor is called Dewitos and it has been tested at some colleges and universities around the country. What’s it taste like you ask? It’s Mountain Dew flavored to taste like Doritos. Some of the people who tired the drink say it tastes like liquid cheese.
I’d wager if you have ever gnashed on a mouthful of Doritos and taken a big gulp of Mountain Dew with the chips still in your mouth, you have an idea what Dewitos tastes like. It sounds a bit disgusting to me, but one taste tester says “honestly it wasn’t to disgusting.”
The taste test reportedly had other flavors on hand like lemon-ginger and rainbow sherbet. PepsiCo, the maker of Mountain Dew, has confirmed that the Dewitos flavor is real and the taste test happened. The spokesperson said that the company likes to give fans the chance to determine the next flavor of the drink. There is no word on if the flavor has been popular enough to make the cut.
