Mountain Dew wants to Kickstart your breakfast

Mountain Dew wants to Kickstart your breakfast

PepsiCo today announced it is rolling out "a new way to do mornings" with Kickstart, a fruit-flavored Mountain Dew beverage.

PepsiCo has been working on the drink for some time. It says the combo of Mountain Dew and fruit juice will be available in Orange Citrus and Fruit Punch flavors starting Feb. 25.

"Our consumers told us they are looking for an alternative to traditional morning beverages one that tastes great, includes real fruit juice and has just the right amount of kick to help them start their days," said Greg Lyons, Mountain Dew's vice president of marketing.

How about a nice cup of coffee instead. With baileys.

3. This sounds like the worst idea ever

Chemical fake flavor and chemical fake food coloring on top of the high fructose corn syrup. Great way to start the day! /sarcasm

6. Well, actually, it's sort of a mixed blessing/curse from that perspective.

The HFCS amp them up, and the caffeine works like Ritalin to bring them down.

God knows what the various food dyes do.

15. I can't tolerate coffee for some reason

I get my daily caffeine from diet soda. One or two a day.

I also can't tolerate sugar soda either.
