Why Mountain Dew is the Best Drink Ever
In an ode to my favorite drink ever I thought I would tell you about why Mountain Dew is the best soda ever created. Please feel free to comment or tell me what you think is a better soda in the comment section and I will be sure to address your concerns. So without further ado let's get into the great soda debate of 2009.
The first major strength of Mountain Dew is its relative cost to other caffeinated beverages. Now I understand that other sodas like Vault could qualify for this same category, but lets be honest no one wants to drink a soda that is a rip off of Mountain Dew. So we will compare the cost of Mountain Dew to Energy drinks that are equally tasty. The first energy drink to compare is Red Bull. This is one of the most popular energy drinks on the market today but you will pay upwards of $2 per can. While I can appreciate Red Bulls amazing marketing and great brand image there is no need to fork over $2 for a small can of carbonated beverage.
With Mountain Dew if you time it right you can buy a 36 pack at Costco for $9.00. Every few months you will also notice that Costsco send out a coupon that also gives you $2.00 off every 36 pack you buy. That makes each can only .24 cents. With this price in mind you could buy 8 cans of Mountain Dew for every 1 can of Red Bull you buy. This first comparison should sell you on the fact you should stop buying overpriced energy drinks and stick with the green nectar that is Mountain Dew.
Let me explain a little more about the importance of a smooth tasting soda for your morning or afternoon pick me up. When you drink a Coke you may find that the Coke always make you feel overly bloated and full of carbonation. The taste can also be a little strong for an afternoon drink. However, the taste of Mountain Dew is extremely smooth and a little less carbonated tasting then your traditional Coke. Therefore Mountain Dew is the drink choice of an employee or student needing a pick me up without feeling bloated afterword. With the Dew you will be able to down the entire can in a short period of time, delivering the necessary pick me up right a way. Whereas if you try to drink a Coke to fast you will only end up with a stomach ache.
However, with this idea in mind I must be honest that there is not carbonated beverage that tastes better with steak then a nice cold Coke.
Mountain Dew has Great Commercials
In the great debate of soda's you may notice that Coke has nothing but stupid beverage commercials. However, Mountain Dew is always trying to come out with a commercial that will make their audience laugh and improve their brand image. Therefore I award Mountain Dew the award of better then Coke for this category.
