Upcoming Permanent Release
On September 12th, 2021, renders of a redesign and a zero sugar variant got recently discovered. From the renders unfolds that Spark is getting re-released at some point in time as a permanent flavor. It is unknown if this permanent release would get exclusively released throughout Speedway convenience gas station stores or nationwide as a non-exclusive flavor. This is similar to how LiveWire got released as a permanent flavor after two limited-time runs.
Upcoming Canadian Release
At some point in 2021, CORporate Kosher released a spreadsheet showing a list of all soft drinks that are certified Kosher in Canada. Among this list was Mountain Dew Spark, confirming its potential to release in Canada. Not much is known so far, but it is commonly speculated that it will be permanent to go alongside the American release, similar to Major Melon's dual-national permanent release.
- This flavor is the first flavor exclusive to a franchise but only for a limited time and not permanently like Frost Bite at Walmart.
- This flavor is (potentially) the second time a flavor used to be exclusive to a store for years, then released permanently outside of said store. The first time being Baja Blast's release in Canada, where you can buy bottles of it year round.
