Thanks for posting! :)

Is it a new limited edition flavor or is Mt. Dew Code Red with a different name?

Citrus cherry? I thought code red was cherry too... I wonder if this is aiming at red blitz? When will this be out?

Something someone made up last spring and had Dew fans excited.

The article states an August release date for the game and soda.

It's odd, I'm a huge Xbox fan, and I love Mountain Dew, but I've never been a big fan of the Halo games. Go figure. Usually almost every Xbox fan LOVES Halo except me.

Wow, what a suprize..right after Vault Red Blitz comes out, this new citrus cherry pepsi is coming out. Hmmm...I've never seen this happen before.

I'm so excited - I think it's past time Mtn. Dew stepped it up a bit with their caffeine, what with Vault and all the ED's on the market now - It's great to have a little more caffeine at a soda price rather than having to pay 4 times as much to drink something I don't enjoy as much! Now, if they just had a better name - I'm thinking instead of "Mtn. Dew Game Fuel" it should be called "Mtn. Dew Mom Fix" - that's what I need to keep me going!

You've also got Mountain Dew MDX out there, 30% more caffeine than regular Dew.

Microsoft announced a September 25th release date for Halo 3. So we'll have to wait until then to see this soda.

Nope, Mountain Dew Game Fuel is set for a August 13th release. Here's a picture I took at my local anime convention (Otakon) where a display kiosk was set up giving away free Mountain Dew Game Fuel to Otakon attendees and the kiosk says "In stores August 13th."

Here's a picture I took of the kiosk for proof:

It must be coming soon because I saw it running on the line today in warehouse but I haven't heard an official release date.

fusion

Yeah, I saw shelf tags for it today (12 packs). Those early reports about the game and the soda coming out at the same time were obviously wrong.

I was told by someone at Buffalo Rock that it would be launching in the "fall" of 2007, is August the new fall?

Game Fuel came out here in the Iowa City area today. Interesting stuff. At first blush, it kind of tasted like someone just poured bottles of Code Red and Livewire together. It was also vaguely reminiscent of a bubble-gum flavor. The second bottle (a bit colder) seemed almost fruit-punchy, like Tahitian Treat, but minus a flavor or two. It's quite sweet. I was also surprised at the caffeine content, as it has 121mg of caffeine per 20oz bottle - or about 33% more than regular Dew. I assume with the 'fuel' moniker, this is intentional. Get a caffeine fueled sugar rush on as you're blowing your friends away in marathon sessions of Halo 3.

Interesting stuff. Not sure if it's worth keeping around, but it's nice for variety's sake.

This is one of the better caffeine beverage charts I have come across.
It has both soda and energy drinks. (Chart is in the middle of the link.)

Saw 2-Liters of Game Fuel at Wal*Mart in Orange today. I was riding my bike so I didn't feel like lugging one on my back. I might go back tomorrow and pick one up. Sounds good!

EDIT: Bought a couple of 2-Liters yesterday, so I threw one in the fridge and tried it out. It's definately a different taste, really one that's hard to lock down. I'd say it tastes mostly like a fruit punch, but really it just doesn't seem to have a distinct major flavor.

It's not bad, but I think I'd rank it below regular Dew, Code Red, and Baja Blast. It does have a bit of a Livewire taste to it, but not quite as sharp as Livewire (at least I remember Livewire having a pretty tangy taste).

I've seen it here in N. Colorado the last couple of days, in 12pack cans. So I guess it's early here too. Not that I tried it, (not a Dew fan)

You went to a RUSH concert.
WOW...are we on the same page?
The same band that supplied my group of friends
with late night, mid 80's "wampum" music".
Boy was that band hot.:)

I too can't wait for Game Fuel.

I think it comes out here on Monday...I tried it today, tastes like a cross of of Livewire and Code Red but also has a hint of Amp or Energy-type flavor. Overall pretty good...

Found it here in upstate Delaware today, 20oz and 2L. I agree with previous comparisons to Tahitian Treat. I'm also disappointed that it's yet another Dew spinoff without concentrated orange juice, which to me is a crucial part of the signature Dew flavor.

and best of all they were 4 for $2.00.

The best way to describe it is if you chew it tastes exactly like Skoal Citrus.
