Mountain Dew Pitch Black

pitchblack.jpgMountain Dew Pitch Black is another attempt by soda pop makers to take an existing product and tweak it a little bit to come up with something new. Often, their attempts only create mediocre products. In this case, Mountain Dew has pulled it off. Pitch Black, which is made with black grape and other flavors, is very tasty. It has a great grape/berry flavor that is very refreshing and easy to drink. And, unlike some other new soda pops I have tried recently, the flavor is full and bold. The bottle indicates that it is a “limited edition,” which is a shame. Mountain Dew Pitch Black is good enough to permanently share the shelf with the other Mountain Dew flavors.

Is this available in a diet form??

I was hoping for something that tasted like welch's grape soda, but had the caffeine of mtn dew. In my mind, that would be the ultimate soda. It certainly had the caffeine, but the flavor, while ok, wasn't as good as I was hoping for.

What happened to it. I've tried contacting them to and got no response. I love Pitch Black. Someone tell me if you can buy it anywhere...please.

I enjoyed Pitch Black until the WalMart and Grocery stores finally ran out around January or February. Then in May I ran across 20 oz bottles in the cooler at a Dollar General Store. I told them I didn't know how they got it, but I would buy all that they had. I got 24 bottles and the manager said it was still on her order list and did I want more? I said sure and she ordered me another two cases before it was discontinued. At least I have a supply that I'm rationing through the summer. It doesn't look like Pepsi is going to make it this year. They've already given up url to the movie studio for the Pitch Black movie.

I never tried any of the other versions of Mt. Dew because the original always gave me everything I ever wanted in a drink. Did your drink mix well with wine or vodka the original did. But as of Sept.3 I would not give you 2cents for a truck full of it. I do not know what has happened to the formula but it has changed and not for the better. Let me know if I am the only one who has found this new taste this bad.

I like it, not bad.
In fact its the only kind of dew I can "do" but its not something I can call my favorite soda, nor can I by it by the 12 packs.
Its one of those things that is good once in a while...

I loved Pitch Black and Pitch Black II...if they were sold permanently, I would be ecstatic! If I remember correctly, didn't Live Wire and Code Red also start out as limited edition, yet started selling as regular products? Why not with Pitch Black? Where I live, Pitch Black outsold even the regular, green Mountain Dew...seems like a company would want to keep selling something that did so well! I recommend that all lovers of Pitch Black inundate the Pepsi Company with phone calls, demanding that they bring back the Black! The phone number is on Mountain Dew bottles...CALL THEM!!!!!

My bro drank my last original Pitch Black today. Anyone know where I can find it online? Or better yet, do you have some I could buy off of you?

I've been trying to get an answer out of Mountain Dew (Pepsi) on when the Pitch Black would be available again. No response. I just finished off my last 2 liter bottle of Mountain Dew Pitch Black, and YES I'm addicted to it. I have to agree, it's good enough, if not better then the Green Dew, so why not sell it year round? Would make us 'addicts' quit whinning about it, and satisfy us and Pepsi's wallet at the same time!

Posted by: jb at September 17, 2006 10:12 PM

Nice site, keep up!

Thank You.

Pitch Black was the best soda I've tasted in awhile, such a breathe of fresh air compared to stuff like Vanilla Pepsi, Inside-out Sprite, etc... INCREDIBLE DISAPPOINTMENT for its disappearance.

Posted by: Kyle Katarn at March 29, 2007 2:40 PM

This is straight from the distributor in my area, The reason it's a beta/test/limited edition is to of course get the publics feedback. But also to see if it gets a positive reaction. Due to the high cost of the ingredients it was not feasible to market the drink permanently with only high hopes.
