Mountain Dew Zero Sugar is a zero-sugar Mountain Dew variant that officially released in stores on January 13th, 2020, as a permanent flavor. It was first leaked on the DDD Discord server from a Pepsi employee sometime in July 2019.
Mountain Dew Zero Sugar is a modified version of the original formula, containing no sugar, but retaining the same citrus taste and yellow-green color as the original Mountain Dew drink, similar to, but a separate drink from, Diet Mountain Dew.
Mountain Dew Zero Sugar was first leaked on the DDD Discord server from a Pepsi employee sometime in July 2019.
Starting in January 2020, Mountain Dew Zero Sugar will hit the shelves in the United States. A PepsiCo employee stated the Diet Mountain Dew variant will not be replaced. Instead, it will coexist with Zero Sugar.
On November 19th, 2019, YouTube channel myCountyMarket posted a soda review about the flavor on their video on YouTube.

Officially, it was released in stores on January 13th, 2020 throughout stores nationwide in the United States as a permanent flavor in various sizes. A few weeks later, it was promoted in a commercial during Super Bowl LIV that had a shade on a scene from the classic Warner Bros. Pictures horror film, The Shining. This led to a major boost in the popularity of Mountain Dew Zero Sugar.
