Cyclone

Cyclone was a Franchise Exclusive Mountain Dew flavor available from May 2019 to March 2022 only at Speedway gas stations.

Description

Cyclone was a Citrus Punch flavor of Mountain Dew. Its flavor concept and color were identical to 2013's Sangrita Blast.

Tagline

Its tagline was "DEW with a Blast of Natural & Artificial Citrus Punch Flavor."

History

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.

On April 13th, 2019, Speedway's social networking team confirmed that Pitch Black was later replaced by Cyclone.

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.

Trivia

  • 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.
