Dewshine was a Mountain Dew flavor that was released on March 23rd, 2015. It was discontinued in February 2017.
Dewshine was a citrus flavored soda and was clear in color. It was made with real sugar, similar to that of Real Sugar. Johnson City Gold and Dewshine both allude to being alcoholic beverages, despite not having alcohol.
Originally, Dewshine was sold only in 12 oz. glass bottles, but would later be available in limited edition 25 oz. jugs. A selection of 4 different jugs of Dewshine had been seen at Circle K stores, which were also advertised as a limited edition.
Dewshine had 42g of real sugar per 12 oz. bottle whereas most other flavors have 46g of high fructose corn syrup and other sweeteners. Additionally, Dewshine did not contain orange juice, a standard ingredient in other flavors. As previously mentioned, Dewshine was not available in modern conventional containers such as cans and plastic bottles, instead being sold in glass bottles and small jugs.
