I finally found some of this Halloween season's big promotional carbonated drink known as VooDew!!! I had been looking for it for some time now, but just recently spotted some in the cold drinks coolers at the front of the checkout lines at Target.
I know I am a little late to the game on this one, but I am still excited to give this mystery flavor a try! I waited a few days to open this bottle up so my kids and wife could try it too. I wanted to get their thoughts on the flavor and this is what we came up with...
Upon tasting this ghostly white soda I felt that it tasted like vanilla with a hint of citrus to it. Overall not a bad flavor. I have heard some people saying that it tastes like candy corn. I didn't think so, but I can see how they would think that. 2 of my 3 kids tried it and they said vanilla, kind of like a orange creamsicle. My 3rd child doesn't like carbonation, but she smelled it and said it was like a minty flavor. I think she is way off! My wife was pretty adamant that she tasted the flavors of a caramel apple.
I researched online if Mountain Dew had revealed what the actual flavor of Voo Dew is, but as of this writing I have not seen any answers. I think it is a really fun idea to do these kinds of promotional foods/drinks because everyone has different taste buds and everyone has their own opinion on the flavors. It gives us something to talk about and debate until we ultimately find out what it truly is and we all see how wrong we were! Have you tried Voo Dew yet? If so, what do you think the mystery flavor is? Let us know in the comments below and let's discuss! In the spirit of the season, enjoy this commercial for another Halloween themed soda from Mountain Dew, Pitch Black from 2004!
