Flamin’ Hot Mountain Dew is the junk food mashup we never knew we needed. It’s just as it sounds: a sweet-and-spicy blend of classic citrusy Mountain Dew soda, with a Flamin’ Hot kick, reminiscent of your favorite spicy Cheetos.

What is it?

What makes it spicy?

None of the ingredients give any indication of spice, so we suspect that the “natural flavor” includes something spicy, like capsaicin.

We tested out Flamin' Hot Mountain Dew, and it is... not very spicy. It gives a light tingling on the tongue, but spicy food enthusiasts won't be impressed.

How hot is it?

Our review:

We didn't love Flamin' Hot Mountain Dew. You might like  this soda if you are a fan of both Mountain Dew and Flamin’ Hot Cheetos and if your expectations are that it will taste like a bit of each but not be incredibly spicy

Where to buy it

You’ll find Flamin' Hot Mountain Dew on the shelves of Kroger, Walmart, and Target to name a few. You can also swipe up to order online and have it delivered to your home!
