Like a ghost in the night, Mountain Dew Voo-Dew has returned to haunt store shelves for Halloween season. This is the third annual release of the Voo-Dew series, and once again, the beverage is a mystery flavor that will leave you guessing in the world of the unknown. Find out more about the 2021 Mountain Dew Voo-Dew below, and check out a few Halloween-inspired drink recipes featuring your favorite PepsiCo beverages.
Voo-Dew Is Back: Can You Guess the Mystery Flavor Before Halloween?
As a fun way to celebrate the Halloween season, Mountain Dew launched its Voo-Dew series back in fall 2019. Mountain Dew Voo-Dew is easily recognizable thanks to its spooky imagery and grim reaper-style mascot, and each year, the beverage has a new mystery flavor for the public to guess.
In 2019, the mystery flavor was Candy Corn, and last year, the mystery flavor was Fruit Candy Explosion. Since its release, there has been much speculation online about the 2021 flavor. Some people say it tastes like Starburst or Laffy Taffy, while others say it’s closer to SweeTARTS or Pixy Stix.
For now, the flavor remains a mystery until Mountain Dew reveals it at the end of October. If you’d like to taste it for yourself beforehand, then visit your local grocery store in Warren, Washington, and Saratoga counties. We are distributing this seasonal Mountain Dew flavor through the end of November.
