We heard rumors about this last year, but now it’s official.  Mountain Dew is releasing a GINGERBREAD soda for the holidays.  It’s called Mountain Dew Gingerbread Snap’d.

On the bottle, it’s described as Mountain Dew with a, quote, “blast of artificial gingerbread flavor.”   They haven’t revealed a release date yet.  All we know is it’ll hit shelves before the end of the year.

This isn’t the first holiday flavor they’ve come up with.  It’s replacing a cranberry-pomegranate flavor called Merry Mash-Up that they’ve been selling since 2018.  That one’s discontinued now.
