History

Main article: DEWmocracy

Revolution was designed by Mountain Dew fans in the first phase of DEWmocracy, and then released over the summer of 2008 to compete with Voltage and Supernova to become a permanent flavor. On August 19th, voting had ended and Voltage was announced the winner, having won 41% of the votes. Supernova came in second place, with Revolution in third.

In 2011, a "secret stash" of Revolution was offered as a prize to those who entered to win them daily at the Throwback Shack website. The winner of the Revolution uploaded a video on November 18 of that year showing that he had been sent 12 glass bottles of Revolution, packed in a large wooden box. In 2016, he started an eBay auction to buy one glass bottle of it. The auction ended on November 14th at 7:30 PM, by which point the bidding had reached $33 USD.

Mountain Dew Revolution was available in fountain form at the 7-Eleven stores in The Philippines. It was unknown how many years it served in their soda fountains.

Trivia

  • Many fans describe the flavor of Diet Ultra Violet to be close to Revolution, mostly due to the berry flavoring in both. Fans have also stated that Dark Berry tasted similar to Revolution as well.
  • Recently, there had been an uprising demand for Revolution's return to shelves since the Back by Popular DEWmand promotion gave three discontinued flavors (Supernova, Pitch Black, and Typhoon) a limited return to shelves. Mountain Dew had commented on this, saying that there were no plans to bring Revolution back. However, they followed up this statement with advice to "never say never," lending hope to fans of the flavor.
  • Revolution was the only DEWmocracy flavor not featured in FanDEWmonium.
