I think eating Taco Bell for breakfast is a worse proposition than having a soda for breakfast.

So, my normal breakfast is some bacon egg and cheese sauce toaster scrambles with a glass of orange juice at home, then a 12 oz bottle of Mt.Dew when I get to work. So, really, this isn't that much different.

I must know... what on earth distinguishes Mountain Dew A.M. from regular Mountain Dew?

Taco Bell said Friday that it's adding Mtn Dew A.M - a mix of Mountain Dew soda and Tropicana orange juice - to its breakfast menu, which was rolled out earlier this year at select locations.

Damn you, morbid curiosity!!

Would that be bigger than a wine bottle? At 16 ounces per pound, that would be 2¼ pounds. One KG is 2.2 pounds, and if I am correct, KG=liter and wine bottle is 750ml.

Happy Hours: I think eating Taco Bell for breakfast is a worse proposition than having a soda for breakfast.


I can't think of what I would like for bfast from there, the drink sounds interesting though but then I have been addicted to diet mt dew lately.

Also most bfast menus are terrible for people that have office jobs, eating 800-1000+ calories in one meal then sitting is always a bad idea.

Actually, its Mountain Caffeine A.M. with sugar, carbon dioxide, and artificial flavors/colors to provide everything your body needs for the cancer you'll get one day.

Americans do love their drugs.


Fruit Juice? that's just Gods/Natures way of tricking you into drinking Mountain Caffeine.

I do, I don't like coffee.

People ask me why I don't like coffee, I tell them by the time I am done adding stuff to it so I can drink it, it is no longer coffee.

What I want to know is why do the only sell these alternate Dews in Taco Bell and not other stores in the YUM family?
 
2012-09-01 04:44:58 PM  
Actually, I make my own "Dew AM". (three parts MD and 1 part Tropicana). The OJ cuts down on some of the extra sweetness of MD, and the MD cuts down the acidity of the OJ. Stuff actually tastes great. Just remember to brush afterwards. All that crap WILL do a number on your enamel in the long run I'm sure if you don't take care of it.

I figure if there's ever a place to put this; it's this thread:

Mountain Dew has always had various flavors in various countries:

Mountain Dew is universal.

Mountain Dew: Code Red is Canadian - Code: Red is a military expression up there that's interchangeable with "Red Alert" here in the states.

LiveWire was originally sold in France and Norway without any affiliation to Mountain Dew as a test for PepsiCo in the 1980s. It didn't do well - and even now it's the lowest selling beverage in Pepsi's line up here in America.

WhiteOut is actually older than you think; it had a short release in the 1970s in America. It, too, did not do well.

Mountain Dew: Baja Blast was sold only in Tijuana and Mexico City until they brought it to Taco Bell.


Ever wonder why there's three different flavors of Pitch Black?

Pitch Black was the highest-selling soda in Mountain Dew's ENTIRE LINE. For four months it outsold everything, even normal Dew! Everything was awesome!

Then some dumbass at the Admiral Beverage Corporation in Worland, Wyoming (where they make the syrup) got tossed the idiot ball and decided to run for a safety:

During regular computer maintenance on the syrup distributor, Little Lord Laughingstock hit the delete key and reset the machine to default settings; thankfully there was a back-up for every flavor they made...

...except Pitch Black. Since making syrup is literally measuring out parts per thousand, and no one had backed up the system yet, the recipe went POOF! Pitch Black II tastes almost nothing like the original, but they thought that (seriously, couldn't make this up) the can was the reason it sold so well.

When PItch Black III came out for Halloween, they had almost the exact same formula - but it was still off a little. Sales tanked, and now it's only sold in syrup kegs (not boxes) for a few regional gas stations as a Slurpee/Icee flavor.

There are also three flavors of Mountain Dew that have all been tested, but didn't do well:

Fire Blaze (Horde Red during the WoW promotion)

Arctic Frost (Alliance Blue during the same)

Raging River (Dark Berry - and you can grab some now; it's the Batman flavor for The Dark Knight Rises)

/Product of the '90s. Love me some Mountain Dew.
 
2012-09-01 07:01:00 PM  
Forgot one: That Mountain Dew A.M.?

It's GAME FUEL!

/Cue rejoicing.
 
2012-09-01 08:23:35 PM  
I wondered what happened with Pitch Black Dew. It was so good, then it was so bad.

And I loved Livewire Dew, but you can only find it in bottles at convenience stores now.

Correct, but for water 1 fluid ounce is 1.04 dry ounces. (so approximately equal).

I truly detest our measurements. Ton versus long ton versus metric ton? No farking idea. 2000 lbs to the ton, is all I know. I see 55 gallon barrels labeled as containing 54.5 gallons. Fluid ounce versus dry ounce. And what the fark is a gill? Seriously, do we need that when we have farking ounces? Look at conversion charts in the front of notebooks (if they still make those charts) and there's all these damned units that make no sense. If you buy soda, it's in liters. If you buy milk, it's in gallons. Why? I think it's to confuse consumers to make direct comparisons harder. Either that or soda is a European socialist plot to make us fat, and they weren't smart enough to make it in gallons in the first place.

How about a compromise: all dry goods measured in lbs, etc and all fluids measured in liters. There, none of this "fluid ounce weighs more than a dry ounce" issue. This is why NASA had trouble with the "Mars ghost" gobbling up landers, they forgot to convert something in the programming. All because a liquid ounce is different than a dry ounce, and milk and soda are measured differently.

Because Taco Bell's customer base is the only one that is consistently baked enough to think that it's a good idea. Plus, people that eat at Taco Bell have already demonstrated that their palates aren't among the most discriminating...
