Kickstart Hydrating Boost (Energizing Watermelon) was a flavor of Mountain Dew Kickstart released in January 2016. It is similar to Flavor 648. It is made with coconut water.


In early 2016, the flavor was released in Kickstart form alongside Kickstart (Energizing Midnight Grape), Kickstart Recharge (Energizing Blueberry Pomegranate), and Kickstart Recharge (Energizing Blood Orange).

Among the adverts used to promote the new Kickstart flavors included the now-infamous Puppy Monkey Baby character. The ad features a computer-generated mash-up of three things that the public generally finds to be cute or harmless; a Pug puppy (the head), a monkey (the body and tail), and a dancing baby (the hips and legs). The puppy monkey baby dances with three men who are presumably watching the Super Bowl, offering them Mountain Dew Kickstart, which is similarly described as being a combination of three things (Mountain Dew, juice, and caffeine).
