VooDEW is a Mountain Dew flavor released for the Halloween season of 2020. The 2020 release of VooDEW was first leaked via Reddit, and later released in early September.
VooDEW (2020) was a mystery-flavored variant of Mountain Dew. Its exact flavor is currently unknown, but will likely be officially revealed around Halloween. According to Reddit user and Pepsi employee u/mtndewinsider, its flavor "sent [them] over the rainbow!" Its color is a cloudy white, a color nearly if not identical to that of White Out and VooDEW (2019).
On August 26th, 2020, Mountain Dew posted a video on Twitter and Instagram that offered a hint as to what the flavor for VooDEW is. On the top right of the tree near the end of the video, the words "Andi Crufty" can be seen, which 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, Mountain Dew posted a new video on Twitter, officially confirming the flavor as "Fruit Candy Explosion."
On March 29th, 2020, the Reddit user u/mtndewinsider leaked an image of VooDEW (2020).
According to a leaked release chart offered on the Dew Drinker Discord, as of March, VooDEW (2020) was slated to release in period 10, indicating a period of time from approximately September to October. The drink began to be sighted in early September, and production was widespread by late September to early October.
There is some speculation of a possible 2021 release with another mystery flavor.
- This flavor is the fourth Halloween-themed flavor to release, the first being Pitch Black, the second being Pitch Black II and the third being VooDEW (2019).
- VooDEW (2020) shares conceptual similarities with Pitch Black II, in the sense that it is a similarly-branded, sequel-esque followup to the original VooDEW flavor.
