Mountain Dew flavour corn snack
From Frito Lay, the same company that brought you Pepsi-flavour snacks last summer, here comes Mountain Dew flavour!

Mountain Dew’s popularity in England peaked back in the mid-nineties, but it’s still reasonably popular in other countries – apparently enough so here in Japan to warrant a limited edition snack.

I can’t remember the exact price, but it was around ¥170(£1) for a tub, what you’ll find inside are pretty similar to Nik Naks or Cheetos. The taste was a strange mix of corn, lemon and lime with a faint fizzy tang – pour some sprite into a bag of Cheetos and shake for a similar effect!

Much like those special Pepsi flavour crisps, these are not entirely unpleasant, just a bit weird! That being said I had no trouble polishing them off 🙂
