VooDEW (2021) is a Mystery Flavor of Mountain Dew. It is similar in both concept and style (in being inspired by the Halloween spirit) to many previous Halloween Dew flavors such as its predecessors VooDEW (2019) and VooDEW (2020), as well as Pitch Black and Pitch Black II. Its color has a cloudy white look, very similar to that of the previous VooDEW flavors and White Out.
Since this VooDEW flavor is a Mystery Flavor, many people who have tried it have drawn comparisons to Starburst, Laffy Taffy, SweeTARTS, and various other fruit candies.
One of these clues is from the VooDewGrim Twitter account reading a book. They said that the book they're reading is a fascinating read by Ruth F. Wiesc. One comment on the post saying, "If you use an anagram solver for "Ruth F. Wiesc," 2 of the words that would make sense are "Citrus" and "Fruits," but the book cover already gave that away."
On April 16th, 2021, in a r/MountainDew now-deleted Reddit post, a user named "AdmiralOink4" posted an image of a bottle of VooDEW (2021). They described it as a "Generic sweet candy flavor," unable to figure it out.
In August 2021, some test bottles got sent out to few select people, with people having differing opinions on the flavor. In addition to that, there was also a box that got sent out exclusively to select Dew Nation HQ members. Before the release of the flavor that contained promotional art and an early sample bottle.
Officially, it got released in stores in the United States in late August 2021 for a limited time, sold in 12-packs and 20-ounce bottles, staying until October 31st, 2021.
- This flavor is the fifth Halloween-themed flavor to release, the first being Pitch Black, the second being Pitch Black II, the third being VooDEW (2019), and the fourth being VooDEW (2020).
- VooDEW (2021) marks the first series of themed flavors to reach three releases, with the closest being Pitch Black and Pitch Black II at two single releases.
- There's a Twitter account named "VooDewGrim," endorsed by the official Mountain Dew Twitter account. It is the first time that Mountain Dew has tried something like this to promote VooDEW.
