I loved this soda when I was younger. I don't know if they changed it or my taste buds changed, but I recently bought a bottle and, while I was able to get most of it down just fine, by the time j was half way through the bottle I was over it and its taste. I ended up pouring the last 1/4 of the bottle down the drain. It's overly sweet (I enjoy original Mt Dew, and that's very sweet, too...but nothing like this). Carbonation is fine. It's tastes like a mix of artificial berries, citrus and something else I can't quite put my finger on. It also has a similar taste to a cheap alcoholic beverage in a can by the name of a number and Spanish (misspelling) of crazy. Pass for me.
