Just in time for the holidays, Mountain Dew has come up with a limited edition drink that has been getting a "Merry Mash-Up" of reviews. I almost want to say it is taking the internet by storm.
Merry Mash-Up is a Cranberry Pomegranate flavored soda that has been described as quite festive!

Today is the day. Mountain Dew merry mash-up is out! This is a cranberry pomegranate flavored soda that will be around for the holidays. This looks like it will be replacing the holiday brew from last year. Found these cans at Kroger 😃 . . . . . #mountaindew #soda #cranberry #foodie #foodstagram #fitstagram #flexibledieting #oreo #nutella #chocolate #candy #snack #snacks #eeeeeats #kroger #mcm #monday #fall #halloween #football #cookie #fit #fitness #junkfood #iifym #seasonal #sugar
It turns out a Pepsi employee leaked the photo online months ago.
I haven't tried the new Dew myself, but I have to say that I am a fan of both cranberry and pomegranate. I could see this pairing very well with a Thanksgiving Punch or with a splash of vodka. I also read that it has no artificial sweeteners. I do have concerns that it will be overly sweet though. The flavor has replaced Holiday Brew as the next holiday season release for 2018.
Feedback from the online community has not been mixed though. With some people loving it and others, not so much. Have a read through these:
Check it out, @MountainDew's got a new holiday limited edition soda out it's called, Merry Mash-Up. It's got a cranberry/pomegranate flavor, to it. It's actually pretty good, so, if you like Mountain Dew, then, I suggest you go and try one and see what you think about it. pic.twitter.com/VQlgpMEV4x— Mark A Tadajewski (@MarkATad75) November 9, 2018
@MountainDew You new Merry Mash-Up flavor tastes like sweet and sour sauce with cinnamon. Well done.— Corny (@CornDogInk) November 5, 2018
Merry Mash-Up: great flavor, similar taste/mouthfeel to Pitch Black but cranberry rather than grape. Strong bite, wouldn't drink more than 1 in a sitting 4/5 pic.twitter.com/OwksBK0POe— Sam Stewart (@_SamStewart) November 3, 2018
It almost tastes like a skittles/mountain dew/starburst smoothie with some cranberry sauce thrown in too 😂— Kevin Timm (@Kevin_Timm) November 5, 2018

Here's what the Dew themselves had to say about this new product:
Mtn Dew is getting ready for the most wonderful time of the year! This holiday season, Mtn Dew is bringing DEW NATION and Dew acceptors the ultimate gift, a brand new Mtn Dew teeming with holiday flavors ...Mtn Dew Merry Mash-Up! The flavor is a blend of cranberry pomegranate, done in Dew fashion.
This new Dew will obviously only be around for a limited time. What do you think? Will you give it a shot or pass on this one?
