Mountain Dew Kickstart Hydrating Boost Energizing Strawberry Kiwi


The Mtn Dew Kickstart was launched two years ago and it’s doing so well that they are adding two new flavors – Strawberry Kiwi and Pineapple Orange Mango. I just got this Strawberry Kiwi the other day from Walgreens and it’s a naturally and artificially flavored sparkling juice beverage blend from concentrate drink. This energizing Strawberry Kiwi drink comes with 10% juice, 60 calories and coconut water. I will review the other flavor Pineapple Orange Mango after this one.

Upon opening the can, there’s a refreshing fruity aroma coming out from the can and you could smell it right away without putting your nose against the can opening. Also, you could sense the strawberry scent right from the moment you pop it open. As for kiwi, it was a bit difficult to recognize. The color of this energizing Strawberry Kiwi turned out to be light orange and I thought it was going to be red based on the color of the can. I guess looks can be deceiving applies to beverages as well. The carbonation and the texture were both about the same compare to other juice blended energy drinks. As for the taste, the very first sip tasted close to light version of regular Mountain Dew drink. After couple sips, you could kind of notice the fruity flavor in the drink, but not so convincing. The sweet taste was about right, but the coconut water was not recognizable. After chugging down half of it, you could tell it contains some what juice in the drink and it was enough to make it smooth and pleasant to drink. If you take out the carbonation and caffeine, it tasted close to Vitaminwater. There’s wasn’t any bad aftertaste after finishing the whole can and it didn’t feel like I was drinking an energy drink.
