Review: Mountain Dew 24 oz Cans


Recently, Michael Bloomberg, the mayor of New York City, proposed a ban on the sale of "sugary drinks" – 16 oz or larger – from any place controlled by their board of health, which would include restaurants, delis, food trucks, movie theaters, and sporting arenas.

While the timing wasn't intentional, PepsiCo's release of 24 oz cans of Mountain Dew ironically laughs in the face of that proposed legislation. Based on designs voted on by Dew Labs, Mountain Dew's marketing/social research community, the new 24 oz sizes deployed this summer in aluminum can form — and are 4 oz larger than the popular 20 oz plastic bottle that you usually find readily available for single servings.

Why the large can? I'm not really sure, though if you look at the popularity that folks like Arizona have had selling their 23 oz cans to an impressionable young demographic, overlaid with Mountain Dew's existing audience, why not try a different shape to goose sales a bit over the summer?

We were able to get our hands on regular Mtn Dew, Diet Mtn Dew, and Mtn Dew Code Red, and yes, you'll find those ridiculous spellings in the artwork on both cans.

Despite that, I do like how they look, as they have a bit more of a contemporary vibe on the brand, while not losing the look/feel of what you typically associate with Mountain Dew. The regular Dew can also features a green-colored pull tab.

There's not much else to say, because we're all pretty much familiar with what's inside. It's Dew and Diet Dew… in really large sizes.

  1. Drinks in cans this big get warm. FAIL.

    Who needs this much soda in one sitting?

  3. I have friends who go through 2 or 3 cans of MD in a sitting when it comes to gaming and what not… Though i think spudart nails it on the head with the heat issue. I'm not going to down 24oz of this in less than an hour, so it'll need to be fridged, or go warm. I think that is why the larger bottle is popular… It's resealable.

    I put them in a coozie just like my Four Lokos. No heat issue to worry about.

  5. It's a good thing I've been off the Dew for several years, or I'd be chuggin' these for sure. I saw these on vacation last week in Ohio and thought, "Oh, boy… I'd buy these and drink one third, just to get the can for my shelf!" Marketing genius. LOL

  6. I can't remember where I was at but a few weeks ago, I saw these cans of this stuff and I also saw Mountain Dew Code Red in these same type of cans.

  7. I like the blown up graphics, it refreshed the brand without changing its core. Look at diet coke's recent venture into blowing their graphics up.

  8. There's also 24 oz Code Red. I am drinking one right now :)

  9. My New favorite Tall Boy!

  10. Had to visit several Targets before I found some. Picked up a Code Red tall boy!

    wish mountain dew decaf and seara mist in 24 cans would be nice
