NEW YORK (AP) If you don't like coffee or tea, Mountain Dew has a new breakfast drink that might perk you up.
PepsiCo Inc. is rolling out a new drink called Kickstart this month that has Mountain Dew flavor but is made with 5 percent juice and Vitamins B and C, along with an extra jolt of caffeine.
The company, based in Purchase, N.Y., is hoping to boost sales by reaching Mountain Dew fans at a new time of day: morning.

Coffee is sad because Mountain Dew is launching a breakfast drink

Have you ever had breakfast and said to yourself, “I wish this was more disgusting”? Does Mountain Dew have a product for you! PepsiCo Inc. has announced that its Dew brand is moving into the morning market with Kickstart, a lightly caffeinated drink made with Mountain Dew flavor and 5 percent juice. The beverage will be sold in the same 16-ounce cans as popular energy drinks. Always wanted to combine the radioactive taste of Dew with the jittery paranoia of a Red Bull, then cut it with just enough “juice” to pretend youre a healthy person? Kickstart’s your new best friend in a can!
It’s Got Electrolytes!
In case you’re tired of beer and cold pizza....
I think I’d rather have a Jolt tm. Cola.
Their motto...All the sugar and TWICE the caffeine!
It’s the thirst mutilator and it has what plants crave!
I used to work with a woman who would fix breakfast for her husband and two sons but she would not eat. Then she would come to work and drink a can of Coke and eat a Twinkie for her breakfast.
She was smart, healthy and average weight, but she had this weird breakfast habit.
In college, I thought that Mountain Dew was a morning drink...
Until I went completely off soda 5 years ago it still was... ;-) Nothing wrong with a Mountain Dew in the morning!
Do I remember an add encouraging us to drink Dr. Pepper hot?
I read somewhere 15% of all soft drinks are consumed in the morning. I was a big Diet Coke in the morning drinker for years. About a year ago I became one of those annoying loose tea drinkers. Much more pretentious.
They need to just cut to the chase and “Jungle Juice” it up by adding some alcohol for good measure.
“... much more pretentious”.
Ooohhh, you point your little finger up! (I bet, I bet. LOL!)
By the dentures when older.
Yes, you probably do remember that. :) After seeing some old ads from the 1960’s, I was inspired to prepare it for some Fall parties last year. Not bad...
You heat Dr. Pepper in a saucepan just short of boiling, and then pour it over a thinly sliced round of lemon in a coffee cup. Let it sit for 30sec and enjoy. The strange thing is that no one can tell what it is at first, but after you let them in on the secrect, it clearly tastes like hot, lemony Dr. Pepper... lol
People that like sweet hot spiced tea will generally like it.
Breakfast of Champions.
And for me, Diet Mt. Dew still is. Never liked coffee and I'm not a fan of hot tea, either.
and Signs of the Apocalypse just keep on coming...
Dare I say, that it makes you a "hipster".
“a can of Coke and eat a Twinkie for her breakfast.”
Yum. Add a couple glazed donuts and a sausage biscuit from McD’s and that’s a great breakfast!
It’s called Mountain Don’t.
When I was in Army aviation, it was said that a Mountain Dew, candy bar & cigarette was a real helicopter pilot’s complete & balanced breakfast.
IIRC, Jolt Cola was introduced just as the disastrous New Coke came out. The former’s sales soared.
My hipster cred is damaged due to the fact I put the tea in a reusable “k cup” and run it through a Kuerig coffee maker instead of using an infuser.
I really liked Jolt Cola.
After a hard night on the town Mountain Dew always has been my breakfast drink..
JEEES 32 RESPONSES Count ‘EM... 32....and not ONE...NOT one Freeper sends us .... a reference to PFIZER’s recent call to PEPSICO requesting help in their quest to provide a new and better name and delivery system for VIAGRA.

IS THERE A FREEPER OUT THERE WILLING TO HELP us? Please SAVE THE HONOR OF OUR BLOG.....
Indeed. The recent announcement of canned scotch goes together with this bit of news, hand-in-glove.
I remember that when I was a kid. My aunt made a cup for me. Think of sweet hot tea with a hardly noticeable touch of prune juice added.
Its what plants crave!
Mountain Dew and a Snickers bar is the Breakfast of Champions.
Hamburgers - The cornerstone of any nutritious breakfast.
Big Kahuna Burgers!
