Mountain Dew to Kickstart Your Breakfast ?!?

Mountain Dew Kickstart

Just when you thought it couldn’t get any worse, Mountain Dew is now available for breakfast. The teen cult drink, chock full of all that is wrong with ingredients is now expanding to the breakfast category. Why do we have a feeling this product is not the right way to help kids get through 8:30am AP calculus?

Product details are scant right now, but if you have spotted one of these in the wild, please send us pictures of the nutrition and ingredient info.

In the meantime, here’s the ingredient list of regular mountain dew, a horror no doubt:

Carbonated Water, High Fructose Corn Syrup, Concentrated Orange Juice, Citric Acid, Natural Flavor, Sodium Benzoate (Preserves Freshness), Caffeine, Sodium Citrate, Erythorbic Acid (Preserves Freshness), Gum Arabic, Calcium Disodium EDTA (to Protect Flavor), Brominated Vegetable Oil, Yellow 5.

We’ve highlighted the trouble ingredients for you starting with copious amounts of HFCS, through Sodium benzoate (potential carcinogen), EDTA (on the FDA’s toxicity watchlist), Brominated Vegetable Oil (Just got removed from Gatorade, it was so bad), and artificial colors (Sign our petition to remove ‘em).

Can we get any worse? Please Mountain Dew, don’t…
