Its tagline was "DEW with a Blast of Natural & Artificial Citrus Punch Flavor."
On February 20th, 2019, Mountain Dew Cyclone first appeared on the official PepsiCo Beverage Facts website. The website indicates that this flavor will only be exclusively available to Speedway gas station locations in the United States.
On March 28th, 2019, it was later leaked on YouTube video, that "Bl5H0P" posted a review of Cyclone in a soda fountain. It shows that Cyclone was released in his local Speedway, marking the beginning of Cyclone in Speedway gas station locations as a permanent flavor.
In March 2022, there was several reports of Cyclone being discontinued and replaced by Major Melon. Additionally, around early 2022, Cyclone disappeared from Speedway's "Fountain Drinks" section, alluding to its discontinuation.
- According to the nutrition facts, Cyclone has an identical formula listing to Sangrita Blast but only a few minor differences. It also happened to 2018's Berry Monsoon and 2015's Game Fuel (Berry Lime), two Berry Lime flavors.
- The name Cyclone was taken from another discontinued Mountain Dew flavor, Typhoon, first known initially originally as Cyclone in the test release back in 2009.
