For the love of all that’s holy, was anyone clamoring for a Dorito-flavored beverage? I think that Mountain Dew has gone off the deep-end this time.
I understood when Taco Bell rolled out the Doritos Locos Tacos; in fact, they actually kinda saved fast food. Then Taco Bell decided to change the game again by bottling and selling Mountain Dew Baja Blast, which was previously only available at Taco Bell locations. It’s a pretty good time to be in the business of Taco Bell and Pepsi, the latter of whom owns Doritos and Mountain Dew.
However, it seems that the good folks at PepsiCo have gotten drunk with power (and a little too much sugar from Mountain Dew) and created an unholy concoction that can only be described as…DEWitos.
You’re reading that right. Dorito-flavored Mountain Dew. Don’t adjust your eyes, this is real.
A Redditor named Joes_nipples reported that Mountain Dew was doing a taste-test at Kent State University, and one of the flavors offered was “Mountain Dew DEWitos”. According to Joes_nipples, the drink tasted “like if you shoved a handful of Doritos in your mouth and chugged some Dew at the same time.”
“It honestly wasn’t that disgusting,” joes_nipples reported on Reddit. “It tasted like orange with a Doritos aftertaste. It tasted like straight Doritos afterwards though. Weirdest thing I’ve ever drunk.”
Okay. Like I’m going to trust the taste palate of a Redditor, but hey, maybe it ain’t so bad.
Other prospective brews of Dew included Lemon Ginger and Mango Habanero.
This isn’t the first time this has appeared either, allegedly. It’s not even the first time it has appeared in the state of Ohio. Check out this photo, courtesy of OhioUSnap, which spotted it at Ohio University.

Ohio is truly the most cutting-edge of the states when it comes to new food products, though after drinking Mountain Dew’s new “DEWitos” flavor, you might want to use that cutting edge to cut off your own goddamn tongue. Blech.
There are also apparently Mountain Dew-flavored Cheetos in Japan.
These people are out of their fucking minds.
