Get ready folks - Mountain Dew hot sauce is coming! And yes, you heard that right. Back in September, the company launched a Twitter poll asking fans to choose between Peri-Peri, Fatalii, Habanero, and Datil for the hot sauce.
The most popular at 37.4% of votes was the Habanero. The hottest option was Fatalii followed second by Habanero, ranking in at 200,000 Scoville heat units. This new hot sauce will definitely bring the spice, but will also have the true Mountain Dew citrus-inspired flavor.
We don’t know just yet as to when Mountain Dew’s new hot sauce will be released, but we are definitely looking forward to it! Mountain Dew posted an image announcing that Habanero won the poll sharing “#DEWNation: you made your choice. Habanero it is. Now it’s time for us to get to work with @JoelEmbiid and @iBurn on the first ever DEW hot sauce." Who’s ready to add a little spice to their life?
We are all excited for this lemon-citrus hot sauce flavor - we imagine it’ll be spicy with a hint of citrus. That sounds pretty good, right?! We’ll just have to wait and see what it tastes like once it hits the stands - until then, we’re brainstorming all the foods that this hot sauce will complement. Fans are having very mixed reactions to the idea of a new Mountain Dew Hot Sauce...
What do you think? Will it be a hit, or will it be a dud?
