Mountain Dew is one of the most popular sodas in the world and, as such, it is one of the most popular flavors that store brands attempt to emulate. On this episode, I'm going to blind taste 5 of them next to the original.

This episode is the result of a request by Marvo at The Impulsive Buy (http://www.theimpulsivebuy.com). Marvo has been kind enough to spotlight Soda Tasting on his website multiple times and when he first featured the show (http://www.theimpulsivebuy.com/wordpr...), he wrote this: "I look forward to a taste test between Mountain Dew, Mountain Breeze, Mountain Lightning, Mountain Fury, Mountain Frost, Mountain Lion, Mountain Roar, Mountain Splash, and Mountain Wave."

It took me a while, and a lot of driving, but I was finally able to assemble a collection of Dew store brands for a fun episode. Thank you for all of the support, Marvo.
