Washington boy finds whiskey in Mountain Dew

A 13-year-old in Shoreline said he took a swig of his Mountain Dew and it turned out to be whiskey. His parents say the bottle was sealed and looked legit.

“Except for the color it looks like a fully functional Mountain Dew,” said Marie Grant, mother.

Marcus Olson immediately spit it out.

“It tasted a little bitter. It didn’t taste like Mountain Dew at all,” he said.

His mother said her son drank at least a shot. Grant is furious. She claims she’s only getting the run around from both Pepsi and the store where she bought it.

“They say well send us in a bottle, here’s some coupons for free Pepsi products and oops. Safeway, I got a letter from their human resources, and they say they aren’t accountable for anything. That it is a vendor issue and to deal with them,” said the mother.

The family fears other bottles might end up in the wrong hands and go unnoticed.

“And you have a staggering 8-year-old down the road,” said Grant.

The family plans to stop buying Mountain Dew.

“Hoax.”

I agree. I wonder what kind of whiskey his Dad drinks and how much is he missing. (A friend’s Dad could be an unwilling donor as well.)
