Mtn Dew Green Label with Crafted Green Apple Kiwi
Recently, Mountain Dew has added another color themed drink to their Label Series product line and it’s called the Green Label. Previously, I have tried their White Label and Black Label, both of them has it’s own unique taste to it, but I prefer the Black Label. As for this Green Label, “We’re letting loose and unleashing a whole new DEW that’s as spontaneous as you are. Made with a uniquely intense combination of crafted Kiwi and Apple flavors, MTN DEW GREEN LABEL is classing up the joint with a fierce flavor to match your fearless lifestyle”, according to the Mountain Dew’s website.
Besides the obvious Green Apple and Kiwi flavor, this drink contains other natural flavors. By looking at the ingredients list, I guess the other natural flavor would be the concentrated orange juice. As for the color of the drink, it lived up to it’s name and when I was drinking it, I felt like I was drinking some kind of formulated liquid from a highly secretive research lab that will transform you into a superhero like Hulk. As for the aroma, it’s the usual Mountain Dew smell. You couldn’t really tell the flavors stated on the can label existed in the drink or not. As for the taste, the first couple sips tasted just like the original Mtn Dew. There wasn’t any apple or kiwi flavors from the drink itself. The only obvious taste that I could recognize was the citrusy taste at the end after you swallow down the sip, but after few more sips, as the flavor starts to build up, you could sense the not so convincing apple flavor in the sip and the only thing that I could compare to it was apple flavored candy. As for Kiwi and Orange flavors, I couldn’t detect them during the whole tasting process and there wasn’t any aftertaste at all.
