Mountain Dew Energised No Sugar 1.25ltr $1.10 (SA $1.20) (was $2.30) @ Woolworths

220

Just in case anyone wasn’t aware that you can exclusively now buy No Sugar Mountain Dew from Woolworths.

I believe it has only been out a few weeks. Typical Australia being 30 odd years behind the USA.

Always loved Mountain Dew but never drink it because of the sugar content but love drinking it in the USA.

Now on sale as well until next Tuesday.

    I miss the OG Mountain Dew.
    It tastes awful since they energised it.

    The flame retardant in Mountain Dew just really makes the colours pop in a way sugar alone cannot achieve.
    Honestly there's a reason it's banned in the European Union, Japan etc

      Banned in Japan? I was getting them out of vending machines only a couple of months ago.

        Yep, they even have the grape flavour there but I think they meant the additive itself.

        Also, 'flame retardant' makes it sound worse than it really is. Simply brominated vegetable oil…

          Also my understating is that they started removing it from Mountain Dew in the USA like over 5 years ago. There is no evidence that it is present in this Aussie made version.

            Carbonated Water, Sugar, Acid (Citric Acid), Natural Flavourings, Antioxidant (Ascorbic Acid), Preservative (Potassium Sorbate), Caffeine, Stabiliser (Gum Arabic), Colour (Beta Carotene)

            AU Ingredients:

              @Hybroid: Thanks for the clarification. To be honest, I haven't looked at a Mountain Dew here but when I went over to USA in July, it was an ingredient over there.

              Also BVO is banned in Japan. Mountain Dew mustn't have BVO in Japan either then.

              Calling it "brominated vegetable oil" people think it's safe - but it's linked with memory loss, loss of balance and coordination etc.

              I'm glad to know it's not in our drinks but two things to take away, BVO is toxic and as of July still in USA sodas like Mountain Dew.

                @pennypincher98: No worries but BVO is NOT toxic. When consumed in very very large quantities over a very long period of time, it can build up in the body and cause toxic effects (like any oil). A can or two a week doesn't cause this. 4 litres a day every day for years could.

                •  

                  @Hybroid: Tbh, that might be the case but I'm not needing to take unnecessary risks. Or, maybe more accurately if something is seemingly worse than the other, it makes the other appear better for you.

                  I'm sure I could find plenty of stuff about everything else, but I don't want to.
