Pickel hummus, pickle vodka, it appears that the past few years have been the era of pickles. To prove our point, there is a new pickle-flavored soda from MTN DEW, and it might be just the refreshing drink you never knew you needed.
MTN DEW is no stranger to choosing new flavors often. However, the Pepsi-owned soda maker might come out with the most controversial taste yet.
The brand's soda is quite sweet and sugary, so combining it with the flavor of pickles might sound bizarre.
That only makes us want to taste it more because the strange combination might work. Or not. Perhaps it will be like bananas on pizza, totally unexpectable, yet, for many, the mixture they could not imagine pizza without.
Even more exciting is that you can taste the new flavor in an Outpost just outside of Mountain City, Tennessee.
You can go on a road trip, drop by and taste six new soda flavors, including the pickle ones.
The tasting will start on June 4th, 2022, when MTN DEW takes over Doe Mountain in Tennessee. And that's just part of the fun, as MTN DEW chief marketer Pat O'Toole says in a press release said in a press release:
"MTN DEW Outpost honors DEW fans' bold approach to flavor and outdoor adventure. The mountain projects we've funded, along with the variety of activities we're offering fans, back our commitment to helping nature lovers access more of the great outdoors."
"In addition to the mountain activities we're hosting, this is the first time we're offering fans the opportunity to try never-released flavors at the MTN DEW Outpost Flavor Adventure. Fans can sample six new flavors and vote for their favorite, helping MTN DEW decide whether any of these flavors will be released in the future."
Apart from the most intriguing pickle-flavored soda, you can taste apple cinnamon, s'mores, elderberry, huckleberry, and summer "pop" flavors.
Which one sounds the best to you? Our money is on the pickle soda, but we would not mind spending time in Doe Mountain as a perfect intro to a memorable summer.
