Mountain Dew: The Return Of The Blue Poo
When I was merely a toddler, I had my first sip of Mountain Dew on a warm summer day, deep in the country of southern West Virginia. A lot has changed since then: where I live, how I live... you know, life changes. But my love of Mountain Dew remains.
The popular beverage has cranked out several versions of Mountain Dew with much success. Code Red still remains a popular alternative to regular Mountain Dew. Livewire is still a recent soda that fans swear by. Pitch Black I and II were short-lived summer beverages that rocked my tongue but didn't catch on enough to stay for good. And who could forget the stunt they pulled running three new types of Mountain Dew for a few months last year? Who else could have done such a thing and make it work so well? I mean, it was called "Dewmocracy," for God's sake!
Recently, Mountain Dew has released two new flavors promoting World of Warcraft. Of their names, I am unaware. I guess know the red/orange one is called Game Fuel and was once released before. The blue one, which could also share the same name for all I know, is the one that has captured my taste buds. It is absolutely delicious. When I drink it, my eyes flood with tears and my stomach leaps with approval. I can't help but smile upon sipping my favorite new drink.
Unfortunately, there is a visual downside to the new soda. This siren of a beverage lures you in with its blend of fruit punch, ginseng, and the aftertaste of the good 'ol Mountain Dew -- only to have a significant effect on your poop.
I had this drink for the first time about a month ago. I had one for my first break and then another on my lunch. Almost instantly I noticed that my poop had turned blue-green. I started to think back at what I had eaten and concluded that nothing could have done that. I recalled my liquid intake and knew I had had no Kool-Aid (I'd once had a very blue poop experience after an incident with blue Kool-Aid). Then I had that AH-HA! moment. The Mountain Dew.
But I didn't know who to ask. At that point, no one I knew had tried the new soda and I had no certainty that the blue-green poop was a direct result of the new Mountain Dew.
So I continued to try my new favorite beverage and my poop continued to be blue-green.
When my wife and I later went up to her mother's house, I saw that her little sister was enjoying can after can of the new blue Mountain Dew. Of course, I had my share of the soda that night, as did my wife. So I waited until tomorrow to see what would happen.
Sure enough, my wife freaked out on the can, worried about her green shit. I knew immediately that it had to be the Mountain Dew.
So I've since then severely limited my intake of this new soda. I'm not sure if the soda does anything else to you, but I don't think it's good if you drink something and it comes out of you in a similar color. What are we getting out of it?
But should you want blue-green poop, jut down a bottle or two of this new blue Mountain Dew and enjoy!
