Mountain Blue
November 10, 2014 12:52 PM   Subscribe

After the recent move of putting its Frito chips in its Taco Bell burritos, PepsiCo has made another attempt at cross-pollination of its various product divisions. Since their merger into PepsiCo in the '60s, Pepsi-Cola and Frito-Lay mostly kept their business lines separate, one focusing on drinks and the other focusing on what we shall generously refer to as 'foods'. In more recent years, though, PepsiCo has also begun pushing various Dorito products into its Taco Bell selection, and even gave Taco Bell its own personal flavor of Mountain Dew (did you know there's an entire wiki just for Mountain Dew? neither did I! (appropriately for this post, there is also a Mountain Dew Blue)). Anyway, in its most recently announced monstrosity, PepsiCo is testing a Dorito-flavored version of Mountain Dew. Needless to say, reactions are mixed. Also mixed are home-made mad-science Dorito/Mountain Dew experimentations. (don't forget to turn on the audio)

PepsiCo spun off Taco Bell parent Yum more than 17 years ago. It's still an important strategic partnership, but they're independent companies without cross-ownership. Despite (because?) the dubious collaborations of late, many analysts think that PepsiCo should spin off Frito-Lay as well.

I want to be appalled by a Dorito-flavored beverage, I really do, but I'd have to own the fact that being appalled at a Dorito-flavored beverage would make me a hypocrite.

See, where I grew up, Fritos were a perfectly acceptable salad ingredient. I don't think I went to a single potluck in Texas in the '70s and '80s that didn't have at least one Frito salad on the table. Why more than one? Because the supporting ingredients in a Frito salad are about as divisive as the beans/no beans in chili debate. The one true Frito salad is made with Ranch Style Beans®. But, I tell you what, there are people who pervert a Frito salad by using freaking kidney beans or, I shit you not, blackeyed peas. Those people are clearly heathens, yet they continued to show up at church potlucks with their shameful commie Frito salads.

A chip-flavored soda isn't too much of a stretch for the worldview I was born into, I is guess what I'm saying.

The Lemon Ginger and Mango Habanero flavors sound a lot better, though, if slightly less outré. If you've ever gotten into Mexican snacks, sour-sweet fruit mixed with spicy chiles is a pretty common thing, like, you dice papaya, melon, watermelon and pineapple or whatever, and you pour powdered chile and lime over it. It's surprisingly refreshing.

Count me a fan of Baja Blast. I wish I could get a (diet) version of it in stores, I really do.

Mountain Dew is oldtimey slang for moonshine.

I'm old enough to remember when they had a hillbilly mascot. (In some versions, the cork was popping out of his jug, in others, he was apparently protecting his still from the revenooers with a shotgun.) In any case, the phrase actually predates Prohibition and there's an Irish folk song, The Rare Old Mountain Dew, referring to Irish whisky, "the rare old stuff that's made near Galway Bay."

Now learned men as use the pen
Have writ' the praises high
Of the rare poteen from Ireland green
Distilled from wheat and rye
Away with your pills, it'll cure all ills
Be ye pagan, Christian, or Jew
So take off your coat and grease your throat
With a bucket of the mountain dew.


Anyhoo.

now marketed as fuel for EXTREME! sports?

There was a distinct phase in MD's advertising history, say mid 80s, where they dropped the hillbilly (note, this was well before Jeff Foxworthy rehabilitated the term redneck) and then realized one of their most important demographics was young males 18-24, or some such. Marketing pivot commenced briskly.

Up until about a month ago, I drank a can of Mountain Dew Livewire (orange flavored dew) almost every morning for about ten years. I need caffeine in the morning but I can't stand drinking anything hot at that time of the day. Livewire almost certainly has traces of methamphetamine or some other extremely addictive substance in it. (Not really, but it seems like it does.)

Doritos flavored mountain dew sounds really gross, but it's just another one of those crazy flavor combinations designed to fail in and of itself while generating as much buzz as possible in the process.

Eh, the staff at my local Taco Bell is alarmingly cheerful at 8 am, and the steak crunchwrap's really not a lot worse than breakfast burritos available elsewhere. Plus, it's crunchy. And I can drink Baja Dew with it. (Since the Taco Bell never seems to actually have any coffee available no matter what their menu advertises, and eventually I just gave up and learned to like soda with breakfast. But only in that specific circumstance.)

tl;dr: Me. I eat those in the morning.

This reminds me of coke blak, which had a decidedly chocolatey taste, didn't really taste like coffee at all, and was actually quite good. It was more like dark chocolate coke.

"That Rare Auld Mountain Dew" is an Irish folksong. About Irish whisky.

Lunsford apparently recorded a song called "Good Old Mountain Dew", about American moonshiners, with scholars uncertain whether it is directly connected to the Irish song. It does appear that Pepsi utilized Lunsford's song as a jingle at one point for which they would have paid royalties, but I sincerely doubt they owe him anything for the name. (Cf: An 1832 magazine story set in Scotland deals with "The Mountain-Dew Men".)

In the world of "what the hell were they thinking," Rockstar made a horchata-flavored energy drink, which includes milk. Somehow, what I consider to be a the nut or rice milk drink due to rice-based horchata being common in the US, includes cow milk, perhaps because Rockstar is taking its influence from Nicaragua, Honduras, Puerto Rico, or Venezuela, where cow milk is an ingredient in regional versions of horchata.

Pinolillo sounds delicious, thanks for that information.

And the drink was Rockstar Horchata was weird. It was definitely a dairy drink, creamier than the rice-based horchata I'm used to. And there was a mild after-taste, dissimilar to most energy drinks I've had so far, but it was still an odd flavor. Not great, but not as strong as the energy drinks I've had before. I won't buy it again, unless I find myself wandering by the local slowly closing Super K Mart, where the store is now down to a quarter of its footprint, but there's a LOT of Rockstar Hortchata left in the cold cases, on sale a bit from the usual cost.
