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!

I remember mountain dew... Grandpa made it. It was clear, sugar free, and cost 6 bits a pint. Sometimes, he would put it in a charred oak barrel for years, and then it was brown, smooth, and delicious. He stopped making it one day, and left Arkansas, (a half hour ahead of the posse) for the forests of Orygun. A recipe in his head, a smile on his face, (several barrels in the truck) and a grandson by his side.

Beets turn your urine and poop red, and beets are great, so not everything that comes out the same colour that it went in (with the exception of brown foods, of course) is bad for you.
But, is that the only reason that you question drinking this soda? Nothing but sugar, caffeine and chemicals, targetted to fat, acne-ridden gamers who rarely see sunlight?
If that's the only reason you're concerned about this "beverage", then I say go for it. Bottoms up!

Sorry Eoz, but it is not nearly as nutritious as you suggested. Sugar would be a major improvement over the high fructose corn syrup.

Drat, you've got a point there!

I should mention that I'm not against soft drinks, but like any other unhealthy junk foods, they should be considered occasional treats only... Certainly not something marketed to kids and all too many adults who play video games all day long.

A big glass of water, a handful of blueberries and a brisk walk will give you more energy than a bottle of Mountain Dew ever will!

I eat asparagus. Full of all kinds of great vitamins and trace minerals. 10 minutes after eating it you don't want to be near my whizz laser 'cause if the smell doesn't kill ya the dark chunkies in the whizz will. As for the Mountain Dew, I'd simply refer to it as "Blue Poo Dew".

The reason for the blue or green poop is the dye in the Dew, the ink in the drink; as far as I know, it's harmless. In a way it's even helpful if it makes you more aware of anomalies in your poop. "Today's feast yields tomorrow's feces" applies to drink as well as solid food. You can also get lots of blue or green food coloring from cake frostings, dark blue corn chips, and the like. The blue poop that results is surely a wake-up call: Pay attention to what you eat(and drink)!

This is where I shine!!! If you cant find that Dew the blue Hawaiian Punch works just as good if not better, start chugging that for a day! It makes my turds a bright green, its great! I love it! Anything with Blue 1 in it, thats the secret ingrediant.

When I was about 7, after eating Fruity Pebbles for a week or so, my dad proudly announced he had taken a rainbow colored dump. After that I found colored poop wildly entertaining, although blue Mountain Dew (Voltage and Game Fuel) have never given me a blue turd.

Branny, the white poo question is answered on another story thread. I don't remember the name of it. Sorry. We put blue dye into tube feedings so if it is aspirated, the blue dye will be obvious in the lungs. And it makes their poops bright crayola green. It doesn't change the stinky stanky smell. I think it makes the smell worse.

Not to worry, Poop Scholar. The blue poops that you are experiencing is really your Vulcan half taking precedence over your Human half. Human genes are dominant during childhood and early adulthood; Vulcan genes take over as you reach middle adulthood. Of course, if you'd do something really enlightening like watching Star Trek instead of spending all of your time here, you'd know that.

Either that, or your Michael Jackson's love child.

When my little girl has friends stay the night I always make them pancakes for breakfast. I like to let them choose what color they want their pancakes to be & add a squirt of food coloring to their little bit of batter, they love it! However--- their shit will most definately be the same color as their breakfast later that day- I totally tripped out the 1st time I saw what it did to my kid, but then remembered what it had to of been- so, no harm not too much foul... I DO tell their parents when they pick them up so they don't freak, but secretly wish I could just let them scratch their heads & wonder...

I've never tried that soda... Perhaps I should!

Well, my closest encounter to that sort of thing occurred when I chugged down a mega-sized, raspberry slurpee drink, thinking nothing of what I may produce. I went to sleep right after, but I ended up waking up a few hours into the night with my typical sweets binge crapping.
Finally releasing most of the junk that filled my stomach, I wiped up and realized... Hey... Why does my poop look like mashed up cherry bread...? However, I could tell simply from the smell that encompassed the room. My previous drink, after all, was red.

I thought nothing of that until now, so... Cheers~

Glad to see I'm not the only person who's experienced multi-colored poop. I've asked around and I've had about two dozen people notice the blue Game Fuel Mountain Dew had a blue/green color to their poop. As long as it's not unhealthy I guess it's all just fun. Hey, if anything could use a little color it'd be a toilet.

Well every time I was thirsty or had a meal I had THE DEW. I pooped to day and was expecting something resembling lou Ferigno, but alas I was treated to a slighly soft light brown log.

I want some dam Martian poo. And I'm out of mountain dew. One upside to this poo experement is that Ive found a new favorite soda.

I like "drinkong." It gives a certain ape-like image, and one can imagine DrinKong pooping out something that matches the color of the Drink. Whooee!

Good story Scholar, and I have had similar experiences with Mountain Dew. Particularly the Pitch Black which turned my turds a purpleish color. Speaking of the Pitch Black, and no disrespect meant, but you were mistaken on when it came out. The Pitch Black was Mountain Dew's special Halloween drink, and the Live Wire was the Summer Drink, which incidentally was the predecessor of Mountain Dew Amp as they were aiming to make Live Wire a gentler energy drink.

anonomously BRAVE just give it time and it'll work. Who knows you may have a tolerance to BLUE 1. thenewcoven08 I live in West Virginia and we're always off on when we get certain promotions or new drinks for the most part. It was Pitch Black II that I was trying to refer to, sorry for the non-clarity. For those of you who live in the midwest and beyond - you usually are more current on new groceries. It took Surge (WOW, remember that stuff?) almost a year to reach West Virginia after I first tasted it in Arkansas. I really have no idea why it takes so long for us to get things sometimes. Despite the stereotype most of West Virginia is not as described. I live near that capital, Charleston, and we have industry and everything. It's just like the midwest except with mountains. But in summary, I wish they'd bring back Pitch Black. That stuff was dynomite.

I completely agree Scholar. Pitch Black was my favorite Mountain Dew aside from the Original. As for thing taking awhile to reach places, I know what you mean. My wife has lived here in Tennessee her whole life, and I've been here for only a couple of years. I drank JOLT in the can and 20 oz. bottles all the time in and after college in Alabama in the 90's and early 2000's. It was just last Summer when I was finally able to find it up here. And, my favorite beer, Pete's Wicked Ale has just now made it to Tennessee, and I've only been able to find it at what I believe is the last remaining stardard Wal-Mart in the world. This one isn't even close to being a supercenter, LOL. I'm originally from New Orleans, and I think everything hits there first. If not there, then it has to be New York or Los Angeles

thenewcoven08.....Pete's Wicked Ale has been in Tennessee for a number of years but has never achieved great popularity. Flying Dog makes a great IPA that is available in practically all the Kroger stores. Give it a try....I predict love at first sip.

a few years ago a friend got me a birthday cake (baskin robbins ice cream cake, no less, mmmmm) and had them do black frosting. well there is a right way and a wrong way to make black icing and guess which one they used? (the right way is start with chocolate frosting so it's already dark when you add food coloring, the wrong way is to start with WHITE frosting.) there was so much food coloring in it you could TASTE the dye (UGH!) and every one who ate it had bright teal green poo for days. oh and it also stains your mouth really nicely.

This reminds me of the mid 90's when that Hulk movie came out. They had green Hulk chocolate syrup. It was great on ice cream and made great chocolate milk. One night I must have had 3 glasses of it. Needless to say I had giant green hulk poop the next day.

I had a blue velvet cake for my birthday that had the same effect. It's just "dew" (ya see what I did there?) to the fact that bile doesn't break down a certain type of food coloring in most peoples bodies. It's kinda funny because the next time I saw everyone that was at my party I asked them if they had "the blues" you could see the moment that they figured out what was causing it.

I think it's really cool that Mountain Dew is becoming more ubiquitous. When I was in Munich in 2005-2006, the only place that I knew of to buy Mountain Dew or Dr. Pepper was in this little cafe behind the university, which had cans for 1,25. Pretty pricey, so I probably only had a single Dr. Pepper the whole time I was there. Oreo cookies had just started appearing in higher-end grocery stores (they even had tables set up with free samples of this amazing new cookie ), so maybe Mountain Dew is the next big American product to follow.Though I wonder if maybe it is more widespread where you are due to how far north you are. I was surprised to discover that in Finland Pepsi products are more popular and are more available than Coca-Cola, and that all around the Finns had more American items than Munich did.

I drank an extra large slurpee of Blue Mountain Dew game fuel last night and my poop was blue. At first I thought what the heck did I eat?? And then I realized it must have been the slurpee. Guess this confirms it since others have had it happen too!
