REVIEW: Mtn Dew Summer time Freeze


Mtn Dew Summer time Freeze is a Dew with a blast of summer time Americana, however after tasting it, it’s extra like a Dew with a blast of nostalgia. As a result of is it simply me, or does this style like one other Dew taste? A case of deja DEW?

Whereas Summer time Freeze’s brilliant blue coloration brings antifreeze to thoughts, its aroma jogs my memory of the fruity frozen novelty represented by the crimson, white, and blue ice pops on the can. Its taste has a punch of blue raspberry with a little bit of cherry on the again finish. There’s additionally a touch of citrus that represents the white lime/lemon a part of the patriotic pop.

For probably the most half, this does style like a melted popsicle, however I can’t shake the truth that, as somebody who has completed durations with the completely different Dews, this Summer time Freeze is perhaps a slight reformulation or renaming of a earlier taste. However, general, it’s a enjoyable tasting restricted time addition to the Dew lineup.

What’s additionally enjoyable is the can’s graphics, that are crammed with crimson, white, and blue bro-sicles that appear like they’re making an attempt to get into as a lot mischief and enjoyable as they will earlier than they soften to oblivion. The pictures are additionally sprinkled with Dew references, just like the ice cream truck’s license plate being MD1940, which refers to Mtn Dew being invented in 1940; then there’s “DTD” on the hearth hydrant stands, which stands for, everybody say it with me, Do the Dew; after which the “DSA” tattooed on the stick of the the wrong way up popsicle that appears prefer it’ll soften to oblivion first, which is perhaps a nod to a earlier summer time Dew, DEW-S-A.


May this be a reformulation of DEW-S-A? It was a mixture of Mtn Dew Code Purple (cherry), Whiteout (citrus), and Voltage (raspberry), however made throughout Dew’s darkish days of including synthetic sweeteners with excessive fructose corn syrup to carry down the drink’s sugar numbers just a little. Maybe Summer time Freeze is the consequence when the sucralose is taken out of DEW-S-A, and perhaps that’s why it tastes so acquainted to me. Oh, talking of synthetic sweeteners, that is additionally out there in a Zero Sugar selection.
