Mountain Dew is my non-alcoholic beverage of choice. Has been for years and years and years.
Someday, I keep expecting that scientists will discover the truth… Mountain Dew causes Wile-E-Coyote level supra-genius, and the cancer in lab rats thing is just Mountain Dews’ way of keeping us from taking over the world.
But despite my years of beverage consumption in massive quantities (yes, I consume mass quantities!) I have recently learned that my taste buds are not quite so discerning as I thought.
I was in da store, saw Mountain Dew THROWBACK on the shelf.
Mountain Dew, made with natural sugar, instead of corn syrup.
Grabbed myself a 12 pack of that and boogied on home.
Got it chilled, popped a can, drank it down.
It tastes exactly the same to me.
Why, oh why can’t I have taste buds that are pretentious, and that demand pure sugar? Why must I be so easily satisfied?
Ah well. I guess I’ll have to find some other way of feeling elitist.
