Cyclone is a Mountain Dew flavor variant that was exclusively available in soda fountain machines only at Speedway gas station locations that were scheduled to be released in April 2019 that replaced Pitch Black. However, it was released at some Speedway gas station locations on March 28th, 2019, in the United States. It was first leaked from a nutrition facts website that was seen on February 20th, 2019. A YouTuber by the name of Bl5H0P had found Cyclone as an early release in this video. Its tagline is "DEW with a Blast of Natural & Artificial Citrus Punch Flavor".
Cyclone is a Citrus Punch flavored soda and has a Maroon color, its shade being similar to that of Sangrita Blast.
On February 20th, 2019, Mountain Dew Cyclone first appeared in the official PepsiCo Beverage Facts website. The website indicates that this flavor will be only exclusively available to Speedway gas station locations in the United States.
Similar to previous Mountain Dew releases, there had been early reports of Cyclone before the set release date, such as YouTuber Bl5H0P, who found Cyclone on March 28th, 2019, a few days before the official release.
As of April 13th, 2019, it was confirmed by Speedway themselves that Pitch Black was later replaced by Cyclone.
- According to the nutrition facts, Cyclone has an identical formula listing to Sangrita Blast but only a few minor differences. This also happened to last year's Berry Monsoon and 2015's Game Fuel (Berry Lime), two Berry Lime flavors.
- The name Cyclone was used to be from another discontinued Mountain Dew flavor, Typhoon, which was known as Cyclone in the test release back in 2009.
