Happy Dew Year was a cancelled Mountain Dew flavor, which was originally planned to be released in stores for a limited time in late-December 2019.
Happy Dew Year would have been an orange, peach-flavored drink. Notably, it would not have had a secondary flavor, unlike other peach-flavored varieties of Mountain Dew.
Happy Dew Year was first mentioned in the comments section of a Reddit post in March 2019. It was speculated that it would serve as a special, New Year's themed promotion. It was also speculated that the flavor could be a champagne flavor or a peach flavor.
On April 8th, 2019, it was leaked on the Dew Drinker Discord server by a Pepsi employee alongside with two other limited-time flavors: VooDEW (2019) and Merry Mash-Up. It was confirmed to be a peach flavor, and was planned to release in late-December 2019.
On August 26th, 2019, it was also leaked on the Dew Drinker Discord that Happy Dew Year was planned to release only in 20 oz bottles.
Sometime in November 2019, it was seen on PepsiCo's PepCoin promotion website that Happy Dew Year would able to participate in the promotion. This was its last glimpse before being canceled.
In early-December 2019, some people became skeptical of Happy Dew Year, not hearing new information from PepsiCo employees, not able to be found anywhere else in PepsiCo warehouses, or in stores early on its release.
On December 12th, 2019, in a Reddit post, it was confirmed from a PepsiCo employee that Happy Dew Year has officially been canceled leading disappointed fans of Mountain Dew to never taste this drink.
- Happy DEW Year is one of few flavors of Mountain Dew that was planned, and ended up known to the public, before getting canceled. Others include a 2019 release of Baja Blast Zero Sugar, as well as Kickstart Orange Cranberry from late 2015.
