Distortion (previously known as Flavor #231) was a Mountain Dew flavor. It was featured in DEWmocracy II and then later released as a Diet flavor in FanDEWmonium. Its tagline was "Lime blasted DEW with natural and artificial flavors" while its diet version's planned tagline was "Lime blasted Diet DEW with natural and artificial flavors."
Mountain Dew Distortion was a Lime flavored soda and was green in color, but its label was shaded darker than original Mountain Dew's to avoid confusion between the two flavors.
Mountain Dew Distortion was created by fans and released as a part of DEWmocracy II. During testing, Distortion (or Flavor #231) was known as Outburst. It came in last place, holding only 16% of the votes. Many attribute Distortion's similarity in color and (to an extent) flavor to original Mountain Dew to its poor performance in DEWmocracy II.
Later in 2010, Distortion then returned as a diet flavor as a part of FanDEWmonium, in which it was a semifinalist. As with DEWmocracy II, Distortion performed poorly, finishing in 8th place.
Beginning September 26, 2013, select Taco Bell locations began offering "Mountain Dew Distortion Freeze", an icy variant of Distortion similar to Baja Blast Freeze and the restaurant's pre-existing Frutista Freeze line. It was later discontinued at the beginning of March 2014, and replaced by another Mountain Dew Freeze flavor, the Kickstart Black Cherry Freeze.
