History

Main article: DEWmocracy

Supernova was designed by Mountain Dew fans in the first phase of DEWmocracy, then released over the summer of 2008 to compete with Voltage and Revolution to become a permanent flavor. People were to go online to the DEWmocracy website to vote for their favorite. On August 17th, voting had ended and Voltage was announced the winner, holding 41% of the votes. Supernova came in second place, with Revolution in third.

Canada

Main article: DEWmocracy Canada

In March 2013, a voting promotion called DEWmocracy Canada was announced. The concept of its name and voting session alone is comparable and consists of competitors from prior American DEWmocracy promotions I from 2008 and II from 2010 (excluding Code Red). The candidates were Voltage, Supernova, Code Red, and White Out.

These four Dew flavors were released over the summer of 2013, competing against each other until July 4th, 2013, when the voting had ended. Voltage was announced the winner, leaving the losing flavors, Supernova, Code Red, and White Out discontinued until next year in a second promotion. Voltage was officially re-released to stores permanently on July 15th, 2013.

In 2014, these losing three flavors got re-released in high demand for the Canadian Back By Popular Dewmand. The flavors re-released again for 2014's DEWmocracy Canada promotion, where Code Red, White Out, and Supernova competed over the summer of 2014, until August 5th, 2014, when the voting ended. Code Red, was announced the winner, and the losing flavors, Supernova and White Out were discontinued once again. Code Red was officially re-released to stores permanently on September 2nd, 2014.

Supernova Slurpee

Main article: DEWmocracy Canada

For a brief period in 2013, participating Canadian 7-Eleven convenience stores offered a Slurpee variant of Supernova and Voltage while DEWmocracy Canada was underway. After the Canadian DEWmocracy ended, and Voltage was announced to be the winner, neither Supernova nor Voltage continued to be offered as Slurpee flavors. Code Red, White Out, and Supernova were released as Slurpee flavors as part of the Back By Popular DEWmand promotion in Canada in 2014.
