Live Wire is a Mountain Dew flavor variant that was originally released during the summer of 2003, 2004, and 2005, as a limited edition flavor that became permanent later on. It's United States tagline is "DEW sparked with orange" while its international tagline is "DEW with a Blast of orange flavour."

After the success of Code Red since 2001, Live Wire was introduced as a limited edition flavor during the summer of 2003, and again in 2004 and 2005. According to PepsiCo, Live Wire which had boosted overall sales of Mountain Dew up by 10% during its six-month run in 2003.

Later that year, it was released in Singapore alongside Pitch Black as part of the DEWmocracy Singapore promotion but it lost.

It was also released in The Philippines in 2014 during the summer months as a permanent flavor. It was also the second time in The Philippines to release a different flavor.

On late August 2014, it returned to New England. This may not be true because there were two Mountain Dew flavors currently available in the United Kingdom. One of which was the original Mountain Dew, and its Diet version.

In 2017, Malaysia renamed their Live Wire flavor into the Voltage name.


  • Live Wire was the first limited edition soda flavor in the United States to be ever released during the Summertime.
