Mt Dew Pitch Black to return in 2011

Sodapalooza

Mt Dew Pitch Black returns

Yes, according to Mt Dew on Facebook, the fan favorite Mt Dew Pitch Black from Halloween 2004 is returning to store shelves in 2011.  Being a soda dork this, for me, is like the announcement of another Back to the Future movie or The Fat Boys releasing a new album.  This is EPIC.

I reviewed all three of the different iterations of Mt Dew Pitch black in my AWESOME-tober-fest 2008 article here.

Here are some pics of the original Pitch Black:

Mt Dew Pitch Black caffeine Free(via xpectations)
The fairly rare Canadian Pitch Black which was caffeine free. The Pitch Black in the states, as far as I know, was not offered without caffeine.

Mt Dew Pitch Black lip balm(via Valeri-DBF)
Mt Dew Pitch Black as a lip balm. For the last few years, this was the only way you could get Pitch Black. Notice that it uses the newer Mt Dew logo (well, newer than the 2004 cans and bottles).

  1. Sweet! I’m gonna get to go back to the dark side! 🙂

  2. Oh man, I can’t wait! I wonder if it’ll last until Halloween or if I’ll have to stock up?
