Diet Mountain Dew (also known in Denmark and Finland as "Free MD," in the United Kingdom, Netherlands, Sweden, Norway and Spain as "MD All Dew - No Sugar, and in New Zealand as "MD No Sugar") is a Mountain Dew variant with only 10 calories, compared to the 290 calories in the original. Its tagline is "Zero calorie DEW."

Description

Diet Mountain Dew is a modified version of the original formula, containing very less sugar, but retaining the same citrus taste and yellow-green color as the original Mountain Dew drink, similar to, Mountain Dew Zero Sugar.

History

Diet Mountain Dew was first introduced alongside Caffeine-Free Mountain Dew in 1976 in response to the growing trend in America of weight-watching. It used to be branded as Sugar-Free Mountain Dew until 1984 when it was renamed to Diet Mountain Dew, its current name.

In 2006, Diet Mountain Dew was reformulated with a new "Tuned Up Taste", using a blend of sucralose, aspartame, and acesulfame potassium as sweeteners. The previous formulation was sweetened exclusively with aspartame.

Starting in 2020, a new zero-sugar variant called Mountain Dew Zero Sugar will hit the shelves in the United States. A PepsiCo employee stated the Diet Mountain Dew will not be replaced as it will coexist with Zero Sugar.
