The reason why they are bringing Pitch Black out first in their new promotion is probably because they already sell a version of it in Kuwait called Mountain Dew X-Treme. Looks the same to me. Either way i cant wait for it. Here are two pictures. One of the new Pitch Black slated for a May 2011 roll out and the other of the one sold in Kuwait.

I was wondering if anyone could please ask any of their connections if pepsi is bringing MD Pitch Black to Canada in 2011 as we had it a couple years back and it was the best MD extention ever in the history of MD. A person mentioned that the flavour would be the original sour edition but if you read the bottle, you would see that is not the case. The bottle has no mention what so ever of the wording of sour so it will be the good pitch black II edition that was just "black grape flavor" as it states on the bottle which is so great to me. Or it would say like it did on the first years edition bottle "sour grape flavor". I have spoken to a rep in Alberta Canada where i live and we are supposed to get Cherry Pepsi/Diet Cherry Pepsi for the summer but i hope they do not get rid of our Lime Pepsi/Diet Lime Pepsi as those are selling good and tatse so good too. Exept the diet crap they can ditch. What is happening with Pepsi Next anyone? I hope we all get Pepsi Next soon!

Read this thread about a month ago and mentioned it to one of our sales reps. He looked at me like I was insane!! Can't wait until they have the meeting that introduces it to them. What I can wait for? Ridiculous amounts of 20oz bottles of Pitch Black crammed into every c-store from Grand Forks to the Canadian border!!

Found one lonely 12 pack at a Sunoco A-Plus in central DE yesterday. Haven't seen it anywhere else. Produced in Philadelphia.

Ugh, still can't find it. I'm going to buy 10 bucks worth of Supernova and Pitch Black when I do at Target.

I couldn't find any Pitch Black or Supernova in cans in Buffalo, NY today. I saw Pitch Black in bottles, though.

Really?! haha I guess I should have waited to drive down. I heard some people were already finding it in cans so I was surprised when I didn't see them (Friday). I'll get a friend to pick some up for me in the coming weeks. Thanks for the info! :)

PS. Cans will be out for both Supernova and Pitch Black?

Yep. I am hoping this is when we will get it at all. For some reason, they have not bothered to carry it here yet. I do think Walmart will carry it based on their eagerness to carry Typhoon in 2 liters. If it does come, i will buy a ton of both.

Why is there a need to continually use the "reply with quote" function?

Good pt. The rule of thumb that I follow is that if I respond to the last past on a thread,there is no need to quote the post. I try to at least not quote a posted picture and a long post. I try to post a key sentence or key phrase. Just my two cents.

So I'm guessing that there will be no Canadian rollout of this. I don't remember it when it was last out. I'd hazard a guess that it tastes like Grape Amp (which was formerly DewFuel and was Mountain Dew flavoured) and I do like that.

Grape AMP is amazing.

I still can't find Pitch Black or Supernova.

I wish they would bring Pitch Black MTN DEW back to Canada again, it's been since fall 2008 and was a big seller here as it was comercialized as a Haloween product here. Pepsi can be so damn stupid in the decisions they make as MTN DEW in Canada has not had a new product since then. When they changed their name to MTN DEW Fuel/Diet MTN DEW Fuel in order to get caffine in their product which was no big deal hear as it failed big time. People want new flavors obviously and this proved it.Bring back Black or Code Red as we had that too many years ago and it was great stuff an the red look was great.

If you're interested in doing a 1-for-1 trade, let me know. Since the weather is nice now, no danger of freezing sodas.

Anything specific you're looking for, let me know. I can also provide you with a list of regional stuff that's available around here.

The whole process between trading lists, addresses, searching out the products and making the purchases can be a few weeks, so patience is key.

20oz/591ml or so bottles would be best - I try to avoid cans since that commits me to buying a 12 pack (6 packs are rare around here). Unless it's something that's sold as a single can, like Peace Tea or Arizona Tea, or an energy drink. We can do sodas, energy drinks, teas, juices.. anything that is shelf stable.

Drop me a line if you're interested (send me a PM).

Yeah, it is a little frustrating that Canada seems to be totally ignored when it comes to Mtn Dew products - especially when there are actually so many flavours available recently in the States. I remember when Code Red was available around 2002-2003 and it was quite popular. I'm sure there would be a market here for that again or for some of the new flavours.

Oh nice to hear Code Red is being released with the new Mtn Dew logo. I'm just wondering if anyone has seen Voltage with the new logo as well?

I'm pretty sure they're giving all the Mountain Dews the new logos.
