I try to be as objective as possible on all new drinks from the Coca Cola company.

Vault finally hit Colorado with 20oz bottle of both regular, and zero.

Vault, has the initial smoothness of mellow yellow, but has a bit of a bitter bite. Which I did not care for.
Valut Zero, has a wicked (and in a bad way) bitter aftertaste.

I'll stick with Mountain Dew.

So to me the hype was missed placed.

I agree with you on the Vault Zero. I ahd one today and didn't finish it. I will hold off on the Hype though until I try the regular version.

being a surge geek i was kind of unimpressed with vault zero myself, but found it is best over ice, so hopefully it will be better in cans, when you can get it super cold.

as for regular vault, i enjoy it, the "surge" burps are the best.

Like any pop, take it out of the can or PET, put it in a chilled drinking glass, and taste the improvement.

The diet is definitely thinner and has a harsh finish. The overall taste is surprisingly close to regular VAULT though.

I just bought 12 delicious bottles of Vault! I had been craving the stuff for months since I had bought some on eBay. I guess with the six bottles I bought last week (and consumed), that brings me up to 18 total.

I guess some people may not like Vault. But there's a pretty dedicated following out there. I hope we're enough to keep it around!

I like it, but I'm not much of a fan of 'those kind of drinks'. I'll probably have one every so often, but thats about it.

I respect your opinion but I would suggest that the title is a tad misleading you said it better yourself when you said "...to *me* the hype was missplaced". There are alot of people who have discovered that the hype is not unfairly placed. So good point but again the title seems a bit off from the argument you make.

Oh, they will. After all, they said they like SURGE over VAULT, but they gave VAULT a higher rating ( a whopping 2 stars vs. 1). And I've never figured out why they gave diet BAWLS a better rating than regular.

There is little consistency to their rating system.

I just want to counter that this is not a news board, but an opinion board. Titles are always going to be subjective, and people click on such a link to be a part of a lively debate.

I guess that's why some people say MDX tastes like Surge.

C'mon, guys. MDX is way closer to dnL than Vault or Surge. For me, the lime in MDX screams, making it a much different experience.

SEV smile.gif I only tried dnL once, and I don't really remember the taste, but Vault does taste pretty damn close to MDX

I agree with SEV. MDX doesn't taste like VAULT. Of course I also still have cans of dnL, and I don't think MDX tastes like that either.

Yeah, they are competing products but MDX and Vault aren't really that similar. They are citrus but it pretty much ends there smile.gif

Sugar Free MDX and Vault Zero tasted almost exactly the same to me. Both good for diet sodas, but they still sucked compared to the sugar versions.

i just compared dnl, vault, and mdx together and yes, mdx is more dnL than anything... here the vault will cost more than mdx once vaults inital sales are over, the reason being no one was buying mdx so they lowered the price to 99cents

mdx, dnL and vault all taste similar, can we all agree on that much?

I don't care for it but if it makes the old Surge and 7 upsidedown drinkers happy then I hope it sticks around for their sake.
