Where is all the MD Livewire? I haven't seen a 2-liter or a 20 Oz. bottle of the stuff in months. All I ever see it in is 12-packs, and that is at Wal-Mart or Kroger and when they do have it in 12-packs they only have one or two. I bought a 12-pack and didn't notice it until today that the box and all the cans still have the old MD logo on them. Are they slowing down the production of Livewire or are they just gonna quit making it again?

All we have around here is 20oz, and they can be hard to find.

I figure they are worrying more about Pitch Black 2 right now.

i have heard that livewire is here to stay, but just like any product if there isn't a big demand for it in your area it could easily go away.

We have plenty of Livewire in all sizes in Indianapolis. In fact it has never disappeared here, and I doubt it will. It seems to sell better than Code Red.

Plenty of Livewire here in York Pennsylvania. And I think it will be here for a while. I like Livewire more than Code Red.

I like Livewire more than code red too. Actually, I'd have to say Livewire is my favorite MD flavor. I even like it more than plain old MD. I hope the reason it isn't around much is because people are buying so much of it.

My theory is when it was a limited edition soda the summer of 2003 and 2004 people stocked up on it and drank so much of it that they got tired of it, and now when they see it on the shelves it doesn't seem that special anymore.

I've only seen it one place here in 20oz but I really wish I could find 2 liters at the supermarkey ...

Livewire just came out with updated labels here, perhaps a week or two ago.

I don't think it's going anywhere quite yet.

Yes, someone post a pic of the new label. I'm sure I could picture it in my head since it's probably just like the other MD labels, but I'd like to see it anyways.

I guess Homer's aversion towards Mountain Dew doesn't extend to Code Red? ;)

just my opinion though

Neither do I. Personally, I don't like Tropicana Twister orange. I'm not a big fan of plain orange pops with the exception of Slice. I really like Livewire, and so do a lot of other people, so I don't think this will happen.

I live a large PBG area and they have already droped livewire. They carry everything including diet code red

See it all over the place in cans and 20 oz bottles at gas stations here in TN..I hardly ever see it in grocery stores though, except in an occasional fridgepack.

I noticed about 3 to 4 weeks ago store adds and in store promotions for Code Red and Live Wire.
I agree with MrR, Code Red (at least for my taste) tastes horrible. It does not have a distinct red pop flavor (not raspberry,not srawberry and not cherry). To me it tastes like Mt Dew with a very weak splash of red something and extra red food coloring.

I also feel pretty much the same for Live Wire.

This is coming from a die hard Mt Dew drinker. I guess that's why I love MD Pitch BlackII....it has a great taste!!!!!

I love Code Red - I think even more so than regular Dew. It has the perfect cherry/citrus balance - it's kinda like a Shirley Temple with more bite. Very refreshing. LiveWire on the other hand just tastes like an extra-sweet orange soda - which is not a good thing for me. Pitch Black II is pretty good, but I couldn't see myself drinking it as often as I do original or Code Red.
