Mountain Dew is bringing back a flavor that really knows how to heat things up. In 2021, Mountain Dew partnered with Cheetos to release a Flamin’ Hot soda that featured a combo of two classic flavors, and the one-of-a-kind drink is getting a major relaunch. The summer 2021 launch saw the sip with a fiery kick sell out quickly, but now you can buy Mountain Dew Flamin’ Hot soda in stores to take your sippin’ experience to the next level.
After launching the Flamin’ Hot soda on Mountain Dew’s website in August 2021, aka the only way you could get it at the time, the red-hot sip officially arrived on store shelves nationwide in April 2022 – so if you weren’t able to score a pack last summer, consider this your second chance. The company took to Instagram on April 20, 2022, to share that the drink is coming back for “round 2,” and on April 21, it was announced that Mountain Dew Flamin’ Hot soda has been named the official drink of Hell… Michigan. You probably have a lot of questions, but it all makes sense, I promise.
To celebrate the relaunch of the sip, Mountain Dew is inviting fans to Hell, Michigan, for an event called To Hell With MTN Dew Flamin’ Hot. The one-night party is happening April 30, and will feature a DJ set from Pauly D and a spicy four-course menu curated by rapper and chef extraordinaire Action Bronson.
But that’s not the only way you can taste it. Luckily, Mountain Dew’s Flamin’ Hot soda is available as of April 2022 at retailers and convenience stores nationwide for a limited time. You can test the waters (er, soda) with a 20-ounce bottle, which has an average retail price of $2.49, according to Mountain Dew. Or, if you’re ready to go all in on the fiery soda, you can grab a 12-pack of 12-ounce cans for around $6.99.
The drink features a unique blend of the citrus flavors from the Mountain Dew you know and love with the fiery goodness of Flamin’ Hot Cheetos. Just like the OG flavor from 2021, you can certainly expect both sweet and spicy flavors with each sip, but this time around, the sip has an added lime flavor for even more citrusy zest. To top it off, the new Mountain Dew Flamin’ Hot can design is also a treat. It features the Mountain Dew Flamin’ Hot logo in burning hot flames.
According to the company, the drink will only be available for eight weeks while supplies last, so you’ll want to act fast before it disappears if you’re curious to try the unexpected new flavor. If you’re 21 or over and looking for more than just a spicy kick, you can also keep an eye our for Hard Mountain Dew to switch up happy hour. Before you run out to get a taste of the Dew’s new offerings, remember to check CDC guidelines for the most updated health rules.
