Pitch Black II was a Mountain Dew flavor released for a limited time during the Halloween season in 2005. It was the sequel to 2004's grape-flavored Pitch Black. Its tagline was "A blast of grape flavor with a sour bite with other natural flavors."
Pitch Black II used the exact same dark purple, grape-flavored formula as the original Pitch Black, but with a "sour bite" added. Many describe it as tasting like candy, adding to its Halloween theme.
As of February 4th, 2020, there are no plans to bring back Pitch Black II.
