VooDEW (2020) is a Mystery Flavor of Mountain Dew. It is similar in both concept and style (in being inspired by the Halloween spirit) to many Halloween Dew flavors such as VooDEW (2019), VooDEW (2021), Pitch Black, and Pitch Black II. Its color had a cloudy white look, very similar to that of the other VooDEW flavors and White Out.
Since this VooDEW flavor is a Mystery Flavor, many people who have tried it have drawn comparisons to fruit-flavored candy or a candied fruit, such as a candy apple.
First clue: On August 26th, 2020, Mountain Dew posted a video on Twitter and Instagram that offered a hint as to what the flavor for VooDEW (2020) is. On the top right of the tree near the end of the video, the words "Andi Crufty" can get seen. From this, it can be interpreted as an anagram for either "Fruit Candy" or "Candy Fruit," indicating that the flavor of VooDEW (2020) could be reminiscent of either a fruit-flavored candy or a candied fruit, such as a candy apple.
On October 31st, 2020, the official Mountain Dew Twitter account unveiled VooDEW's 2020 Mystery Flavor to be Fruit Candy Explosion.
On March 29th, 2020, in a r/MountainDew Reddit post, VooDEW (2020) got first leaked by a PepsiCo employee named "mtndewinsider," showing an image of a 20-ounce bottle of VooDEW (2020). The PepsiCo employee said that it "sent [them] over the rainbow!"
According to a leaked release chart offered on the Dew Drinker Discord. As of March 2020, VooDEW (2020) got slated to release in period 10, indicating a time approximately from September 2020 to October 2020. It began to get sighted in stores across the United States in early September 2020, with full widespread distribution expected later by late September 2020 to early October 2020.
Officially, it got released in stores in the United States in early September 2020 for a limited time, sold in 12-packs, and 20-ounce bottles, staying until October 31st, 2020. After its discontinuation, popularity remained pretty high, and PepsiCo might release a third annual release of the VooDEW series for 2021, which they did a year after.

- Both Pitch Black II and VooDEW (2020) share similarities in branded to their precursors and are similar in the style of packaging and art style of their precursors.
