Mountain Dew in Germany

Mountain Dew in GermanyOne thing I really missed from living in the U.S. once I returned to Germany was Mountain Dew, a caffeinated soft drink from PepsiCo. (Yeah, of course I also miss the low gas prices, the great Californian weather, 24-hours stores…)

I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw Mountain Dew bottles in a fridge at the local Shell gas station in Biberach this morning. It seems a little bit overpriced (1.49 EUR / 2.20 USD) for 0.5 l / 17 fl oz., but it tastes soooo good 😉 Grab it while it’s hot.

Update: Mountain Dew is also available on!

  1. Wow!! Awesome. But the real question is: does it taste like Mountain Dew? If you’ve ever had the American Fanta Orange, you’ll know that what I mean. It doesn’t even appear to be from the same family of products as the German Fanta Orange. So I wonder if Mountain Dew has modified their taste to fit the German market, or if they kept their Dew awesomeness!

  2. not tasty at all to me. seems like it would glow in the dark. i tried it once, never again. don’t like/miss dr pepper either… bärx!

  3. I love it although (or rather: because) it doesn’t taste as sweet as the U.S. version. I wonder if it contains less sugar. Let’s compare the ingredients. Tom? Frank? Rico? Anyone grab a can of Mountain Dew from the office fridge?

  4. Woooow,

    that are real good news from Germany! So there is still hope. You saved my (future) life.
    But I have very bad news for you my fellow: Since Mountain Dew became the most famous drink at the office it’s always empty and the supplies really suck 🙁

    But fortunately read this Safeway ad: “Buy 2 12-packs, get 3 free” Safeway – Ingredients for life 🙂

    I’m so jealous of you. I’ll try to grab some U.S. Mountain Dew at the commissary when I’m home during the holidays.

  6. I don’t live in Berlin anymore, but you could try shopping for Mountain Dew at Shell/ARAL gas stations or Kaufhaus des Westens (KaDeWe).
