Game Fuel Tropical Smash (previously known as Flavor #736) is one of seven prototype flavors for DEWmocracy II, delivered to Dew Labs members for taste testing. 8 years later, it was released in Mid October of 2017 for a limited time to promote the upcoming video game Forza Motorsport 7 for Every60Seconds. Its companion flavor was Arctic Burst, a returning Slurpee flavor receiving a store release 11 years later.

Description

Game Fuel (Tropical Smash) was a tropical punch flavored soda with a distinct pineapple overtone, which was similar to Game Fuel (Tropical), Amp Game Fuel Charged (Tropical Strike), Typhoon and Solar Flare and was yellow-orange in color. Subtle tones of mango and orange were present.

History

In 2009, this flavor, along with flavors 722, 286, 648231493, and 509, were shipped to Dew Labs members who were chosen based on their video submissions to the now defunct video website 12seconds.tv, and were shipped boxes of the seven prototype flavors. From the initial seven flavors, taste testers were asked to elect three final flavors for later release at retail stores. #736 eventually lost and was not released to stores.
