Mtn Dew Kickstart Black Cherry
Great tasting drink with a low caffeine content, so appreciate it for what it is.
Not your typical energy drink for today’s review. Mountain Dew Kickstart Black Cherry is on the dockett, which for me is the perfect road trip pick-me-up when you’re trying to avoid the jitters or the inevitable caffeine crash.
Just like the Monster Zero Ultra line is the same, repeatable recipe with different flavors; Mountain Dew Kickstart Black Cherry is really just Mountain Dew with cherry flavor. Which makes the taste pretty simple - if you like Mountain Dew and cherry, you’ll like this. I do happen to enjoy both, which is why I’m bequeathing a generous 8.75.
4 for appearance since it’s nothing special. I do like the clean lines and black & red color scheme, but it’s not going to move the needle. Pours out dark red with low-medium carbonation.
92mg of caffeine isn’t enough to blow you away, but like I said in the introduction - the niche for Mountain Dew kickstart is a coffee/tea substitute when you’re feeling a cold, soda or energy drink like beverage. Don’t expect this to replace your Bang or Quake, and you’ll be fine.
Great tasting drink with a low caffeine content, so appreciate it for what it is. And please tell me I’m not the only one who enjoys a cold, refreshing Kickstart on road trips.
