Pepsi Cola Informative - Mountain Dew tastes flat and tastes horrible
BURLINGTON, MASSACHUSETTS -- Mountain Dew has tasted bad since December 2004 or January 2005.
I thought it was being frozen during shipment. But it has been like this for at least 3 months now, so I think that might not be a possibility. Also it only tastes bad at some places where ever I buy it. The batch codes on the bottom of the cans that taste bad don’t match each other so I cannot discriminate it using the batch number when buying some. Both good and bad cans are firm at room temperature, but at refrigerator temperature the bad cans are a little squishy and the good cans remain their firmness.
I have checked the FDA food recalls and there hasn’t been any recalls.
I have noticed other posts on this site that Pepsi brand is also affected.
Maybe it’s a cleaning chemical that does not get washed out between batches.
