      if you are looking for the American version of Mountain Dew I believe it has been pulled from shelves in the UK. A recent announcement from retailer American Soda said the product does not comply with European Union Standards and pulled the product from their offering of imported American soft drinks.

      However, the UK version of Mountain Dew is called “Mountain Dew Energy” and you should be able to find it. PepsiCo is marketing the product in the UK as a glucose stimulant versus just a regular soft drink – so you can find it with energy drinks instead of regular sodas.

      Because Mountain Dew traditionally has a large amount of high fructose corn syrup, there has been concern about health issues with this drink. Also consider the amount of caffeine and other ingredients such as sodium benzoate and brominated vegetable oil - this makes the drink a bit risky for retailers to sell. Lately there has been in the press, a big push to ban or restrict caffeinated drinks in general. Regardless of the health risks there still seems to be quite a following in the UK for Mountain Dew and other energy drinks.

      I believe that PepsiCo needs to do a better job in marketing the Mountain Dew Energy product in the UK so that suppliers and retailers will be more willing to stock it.

      By the way, I was able to find some at a Total Petrol Station.

      Thank you for this information. Maybe I should try to supply Mountain Dew Energy in the UK and help to spread the word.

      I have found some recently at Spar.

      On a side note. We were in florida last year on holiday and drank it for the first couple of days to stay awake and get through the jet lag.
