Remember when Taco Bell started selling a breakfast drink that was made up of Mountain Dew and orange juice? Well it appears that Mountain Dew is messing around with juice and breakfast once again. Later this month Mountain Dew will be introducing the world to a whole new drink called Kickstart. Here’s the facts about Mountain Dew Kickstart. 

Kickstart will be a mix of Mountain Dew and either orange juice or fruit punch in a 16-ounce can. Guess what? It’ll be caffeinated. Some how they are promising this will not be an energy drink..... oh ok.

Kickstart has far less caffeine than energy drinks — 92 milligrams for a 16-ounce can. A comparable amount of regular Mountain Dew would have 72 milligrams of caffeine while a can of PepsiCo's Amp energy drink has 142 milligrams, according to the Center for Science in the Public Interest. By comparison, a 16-ounce cup of Starbucks coffee has 330 milligrams of caffeine. A can of Kickstart has 80 calories, PepsiCo says.”

Kickstart should be in stores everywhere in the country by the 25th.

Are you excited for it? Those who can't wait until the 25th to taste the drink can go to to request a can.
