Description

Cyclone is a flavor of Mountain Dew which is Maroon in color, very similar to Sangrita Blast. Its flavor is a Citrus Punch type of flavor.

It was reported that the flavor is identical to 2013's Sangrita Blast in terms of color and 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.

It was later discovered by the Mountain Dew Wiki administrator, Duckieboy01. Since this discovery being made, he shared it with the Dew Drinker Discord in which sparked up the users in the Discord server.

On March 28th, 2019, in a YouTube video, a user by the name of "Bl5H0P" posted a video review of Cyclone, showing that Cyclone was released in his local Speedway. On that day forward, Cyclone was later released in other Speedway locations as a permanent flavor. As of September 2020, Cyclone is still available.

As of April 13th, 2019, it was confirmed by Speedway themselves that Pitch Black was later replaced by Cyclone.

Trivia

  • According to the nutrition facts, Cyclone has an identical formula listing to Sangrita Blast but only a few minor differences. This also happened to 2018'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 originally known as Cyclone in the test release back in 2009.
