Description

Its store release tagline was "DEW with a Blast of Artificial Gingerbread Flavor", while its prototype tagline was "DEW with a Blast of Natural & Artificial Gingerbread Flavor".

History

On August 4th, 2020, on the Dew Drinker Discord, information was leaked by an anonymous individual showing upcoming plans for 2021 with many flavors and new brands alike. All of these leaks are as follows: Major Melon, alongside its Zero Sugar variant, Rise Energy, Baja Blast alongside two flavors, Baja Flash and Baja Punch, DEW-S-A, Riddler's Brew, Gingerbread Snap'd, and a re-release of Pepsi Blue.

On October 8th, 2020, a leaked internal reel video surfaced, showing upcoming plans for the Mountain Dew brand for 2021. This video re-affirmed much of the previously leaked information for 2021. From this, the video shows new seasonal flavors, such as Baja Flash, Baja Punch, Riddler's Brew, Snap'd, and an addition of a permanent flavor, Major Melon.

On various dates of 2021, there are some photographs of Snap'd on certain websites across the internet and from the posts of certain people that got ahold of sample bottles. They are obtaining it through PepsiCo employees and similar occurrences such as advertising for the flavor. In addition, it looked like the drink has been rebranded, slightly to the point of changing the name and color to appeal more widely.

Officially, it was released in stores in the United States on November 1st, 2021 for a limited time, sold in 12-packs, and 20-ounce bottles, staying until December 31st, 2021. It was then succeeded by the upcoming leaked flavor Fruit Quake.
