The Glucoholic used to have a very serious problem with Mountain Dew. Anyone out there who’s also suffered with this addiction knows what we’re talking about – those school days when you reached the soda machine only to find that the precious was sold out. Simultaneous feelings of paralyzing fear and vein-popping anger rushed through your body. The Glucoholic quit cold turkey and suffered a horrible detoxification process, and since has avoided anything Dew for fear of returning to those dark days. That is, until now. Enter Caffeine Free Diet Mountain Dew! You get the familiar taste of Mountain Dew, without all the things you need to seek treatment for. No sugar. No caffeine. Just neon green goodness.
The taste of Caffeine Free Diet Mountain Dew is quite good. There is a very slight aftertaste that hints of the aspartame inside, but the pinch of acesulfame potassium and sucralose really keep this to a minimum. The aftertaste is an order of magnitude more acceptable than most other diet drinks that contain aspartame. We can’t recall finding any other diet drink that actually uses all three. Of course, we would have preferred sucralose only, but we’re not complaining. As far as nutrition goes, you’ll get 35mg of sodium in each eight ounce serving and that’s it. If you’ve ever enjoyed Mountain Dew as much as we used to, you owe it to yourself to give Caffeine Free Diet Mountain Dew a try.
