Hola. im over at Dewmocracy, and you probably remember me from with my site Freewebs.com - Free website, free hosting, free webpage, online photo album, free blog, more! (http://www.freewebs.com/bringbacktehdew) to get more flavors of MT. Dew out and keep them.

We have gotten to the point where the top 3 ideas have been chosen, and we are currently making the logo, label, and tag line for them with our 3 teams. After we do that, tehy will be put for a national vote, where the winner will FOR SURE be the next Dew out in stores.

Option 1 (my team and what im fighting for)-
Name: Revolution
Color: Slate Blue
Flavor: Fruit Fusion with Wild berry+Ginseng
-------------------------------------------------

Option 2:
Name: Voltage
Color: Lavendar (looks plain purple anyways)
Flavor: Raspberry Citrus Blend+Ginseng
------------------------------------------------

Option 3(My second choice)-
Name-Supernova
Color: Violet (sorta pale)
Flavor: Strawberry Melon Lime+Ginseng
------------------------------------------------

Yea they all have ginseng but i guess thats no big deal. Now that i realy look at the option, i think id rather have supernova over revolution, i jsut REALLY liked the idea of a blue dew. Supernova has perfect flavors: Streawberry melon lime. hhhhhhhmmmmmmmmmm, i dont know......

So one of these will be on the shelves sometime in 2008, whats your pick?

Just regular green Mountain Dew for me. None of the additional foofy foofy flavors are needed.

Hasn't Mountain Dew and MDX earned it's name as "extreme" for BMX biking, X games and such.

It's like taking a Harley Biker and putting him in a tutu.

Mias well call it:

Mountain Dew..

Fruity Fairy Dust

Strawberry Meloncaully

Rootin Tootin raspberry

IMO.. leave the "with ginseng" out of the title. Seems no point to advertise the ingredient with the least presence. With that mind set you might try, Mountain Dew Blue, with carbonated water.

I'll be more impressed when I see. "Now with cane sugar" (in glass bottle no less)

How about some Licorice, Natural, Red, Blue, Green, Purple, Power Energy, Ultra-Supreme-Overchared, Nitrous-Charged, utimate, incredible, super, poly-unsaturated, super-fast-acting, incredible, absolute power $hit-kicking Moutain-Dew! ;)

.... and that's a big "for-sure, good buddy!"

well the three are still in development by us for another couple weeks, and then the national vote after that, so none of them will be made except the winner.

I would like to add my two cents.
I would dig MD Strawberry straight up.
Just a nice Strawberry Crush flavor high lighted
by good old MD. As a wise man once told me,
"Keep it simple stupid. LOL".

Ok I havn't been on here in awhile so I think I need to say my two cents and stick up for MD. I read those choices and personally I would leave out the ginseng all together. I have had ginseng but personally would rather not have it in a soda. Soda's are supposed to have caffiene and be full of sugar. If it came down to the wire I would have to go with Supernova. Even though I am not a big fan of strawberry drinks. The melon and lime might make it better though. I however think strawberry MD would be too close to Code Red. I don't care for Code Red but my boyfriend drinks it religiously. And the violet color is the exact opposite of strawberry so it kinda works. Who said the drink had to be the same color as the flavor? I thought black cherry would have been good with lime or melon and it should be bright knock-your-eyes-out- flouresent green because cherry is red. My boyfriend said green apple but I don't know if that would fly there are enough drinks of that flavor already. But mixed with melon might be good. I also wanted to see maybe something tropical but I don't know if that would go over after Pepsi summer mix.( Bring back Summer mix,yo!)Well anyways that's my opinion. No haters. JK Lol.

All 3 have names that leave a lot to be desired

Revolution- The name must be from some 60's retread that still believes in the socialist platform of government while trying to maintain his rights of free speech and living under the mantra of " if it feels good then do it". OR, it was concocted by some sophomore college student who believs in Che Guevera because he likes the T-shirt and doesn't totally grasp his anti capitilast, anti individual ideaolgy.

Voltage- This is from some guy who had BIG hair in the eighties. Loved his Pantera & Danzig. Thought his hair bands were cool because he thought they aspired to be anti conformity all the while he didn't realize they were the most capitalist "artist" in the industry because after all they were cooked up earlier versions of "boy bands".......... sans DISNEY!

Supernova- EARTH TO CARL SAGEN....Come in CARL!!!!!!! This name will never stick. Supernovas expel a great amount of energy..in the beginning, but then leave behind in some instances a black hole devoid of any energy at all. I suppose this will be the outcome of this drink.

I agree 100%....

The three names chosen (no offense to my homosexual freinds) are GAY. (1980's version)

By gay I mean happy, by happy I mean lame.

If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

I may be one of few, but I lost interest in the site after about 2 minutes on it. Then to have to wait each week to go to the next level....no thanks. I'm ok with just a question and answer form.

I know I'll get flack for it. But let's face it, the 3 options given sounds like they've come from individuals who have nothing better to do than to play Dungeons and Dragons or Star Wars and spend all their time on a site playing a game to create a name for a new soda.

Might as well as call it....

hey you jstu called some pepsico workers nerds lol, you all do know that they were the ones who made these names right?

I agree all the names do really suck, ESPECIALLY revolution.
"voltage" soudns way to much like livewire, thats pretty bad
SUpernova would be the best name choice even though it sucks anyways.

I worked for PBG/Pepsico for years......calling some of thse guys nerds is actually a compliment as well as a step up from what they are usually called!

Give us a "cool" name then

No problem:

Mountain Dew Rush with cane sugar

Mountain Dew Old School with cane sugar

Mountain Dew Blast (from the past) with cane sugar

Do you see a recurring theme here?

If they're going to have 70-80's names, might as well as give them a reason and bring back the right flavor with it.

Same great Dew, no fruity flavors, no "healthy crap" aka ginseng, taurine, etc.

Just the same dew, but made the way it should be. People will buy it on an ongoing basis and sales will flourish, whereas any new flavor will be purchased to try it once or twice and then it will become scarce. (such as pitch black, code red, live wire, game fuel, etc..)

IMHO, those names are lamer than the official ones, though I certainly wouldn't complain about a cane sugar MD. But what's in a name anyway? If it were up to me I'd just call them by their flavors (i.e. Strawberry-Melon Mountain Dew). I'm all for "fruity" flavors if they taste good, though I could definitely do without the ginseng.

But yeah, my vote is for Supernova.

Well if you call them by their flavors then you lose some marketing appeal. i.e. Sunkist Orange is recognized as "the " brand and then you have Sunkist Grape, Sunkist Fruit Punch, etc. None of the Flavor extensions get more than a nod when it comes to brand recognition because they are just that: a flavor extension.
IMO Mtn Dew did Well with Livewire and Code Red as far as saying ....Hey this is a NEW Drink but it is also a Mtn Dew.....if that makes any sense.

True, after reviewing the ones I came up with, they are lame as well, BUT, I came up with mine in 2 minutes to respond to 3 "cool" names better than the first 3. So in 2 minutes the names may not be great.

But they border the same qualities as those that have taken weeks to come up with on that site.

I dunno, my opinion doesn't mean anything anyway. I just like to comment.

Whatever it's named I'll drink and it and either try it again or once is enough. Such as Livewire and Code red. Once was enough for either of those.

But as I've said many times before, you're either a die hard Mountain Dew drinker and try the other flavors and go back to the green stuff, or you're the person who rarely drinks Mountain Dew and these other flavors are out there to temp you.

I was able to a score one of the few Supernova bottles the other day at a grocery meeting of mine, unfortunately, I gave it to someone, and wasn't able to try it. I did hear it was excellent though!

my family owns a racetrack. we get all of the new makes of drinks before they come out, so we can taste them and decide if we plan to use them in our business. i am not a taste tester by the way ;)

I was in woodmans today, and on the desk inside the management office, i saw 3 soda cans sitting on a cabinet. i got as close as i could and realized that they are the dewmocracy sodas. So i grabbed a quick, bad shot of them with my phone.

Rob, I'm surprised you did not pull the fire alarm and dive through the
glass window. I could just picture you running out the main doors with
those cans. Cool picture. :)
