Mountain Dew Red was the first flavor variant on the Mountain Dew line in the United States. Its tagline was "Fruit flavored Mountain Dew."
Released only in 1988, Mountain Dew Red saw a test release in regions of Alabama. During its one-year run, a zero-calorie variant of it was also released - Diet Mountain Dew Red. Both were discontinued that same year.
Because Red was around for such a short time, very little was known about it. It was described on the can as being "Fruit Flavored" and was (as its name suggests) red in color.
- Due to Red being discontinued the same year it was created, it was not well-known, and very rarely seen. The pictures here were the only ones taken.
- Despite their similar names, Red and Code Red had different flavoring, and were not related.
- In the popular musical "Be More Chill", Mountain Dew Red was the only thing able to disable the "SQUIP", a supercomputer chip inside someone's brain, while normal Mountain Dew (or "Mountain Dew Green) activated it. This was one of the only references to Mountain Dew Red in recent years. However, in the book and non-musical stage play, Code Red deactivated (or "dissolved") the SQUIP.
