I'd just like to note here that my addiction to Mountain Dew ended at about age 24, or when I left grad school. Further, I'd like to point out that I lost 20 pounds in a month simply switching to Diet Pepsi. Even further, my addiction to Diet Pepsi, which measures in the gallons per week category even now, is supposed to be better for you. I don't count on it, but like the old smokers used to say, something's got to kill me, and I think DP is pretty low on that list.
But, I have a really difficult time drinking water unless I'm outside doing something physical, so I drink DP instead. And when you grow up with undrinkable water, well, what do you expect?
[sarcasm] I'm sure the Marcellus Shale drilling will make the water so much better too.[/sarcasm]
This article comes to us from Dothan, Alabama, from the Dothan Eagle.
Somewhere along the way, Mountain Dew has gotten lumped in with potted meat and airbrushed T‑shirts as an identifier of low social status.
I’m not exactly sure when it happened, but the sugary, high caffeine beverage is coming to be increasingly associated with tackiness by the various cultural trendsetters of our society, late night television hosts, magazine articles, etc.
I’ve noticed in recent years a sort of food snobbery developing in our popular culture. The natural foods crowd looks down their noses at the fast food drive-thru line, the latte sippers view consumers of soda as residents of Tobacco Road, and Heaven save us all from the condescension of the vegans and the wrath of their anemic fury for us wicked carnivores.
To be sure, there’s some validity behind the backlash against Mountain Dew. Dentists in Appalachia have spent a considerable amount of time treating “Mountain Dew Mouth,” excessive cavities in children and adults brought on by large amounts of soda. And it probably doesn’t help that it’s sold in 24-ounce, 64-ounce and diabeetus sizes at the convenience stores. More.
I know this is 6 years later but I didn't have any issues until about 2 years ago I started getting cavities and the dentist I went to after my fourth tooth fell broken from my mouth ask me if I drank mt dew, I told him yes and he specifically said that was my problem I cannot find anything on any class action suit on this matter and now I need to have my whole top row pulled and three or four of my bottom I wish do see and do something about this . Pepsi should definitely have labels that say may cause tooth decay or something along that nature. I look like I have been doing meth for years because of Dew and I didn't have a cavity until I was in my early thirties. So please if anyone knows anything please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
I also suffer from "Dew Mouth". I was unaware of the major damage it could do even with brushing 3x daily. The chronic pain associated with the oral damage it does is amazing, almost as amazing at the fast rate of which it destroys the teeth. Dr Levin in Indianapolis Indiana can remove and replace an entire upper row for $2,000. I am very pleased with his work. Pepsi Cola has no warnings of the damage this product does. Nor does it mention the addictive nature it also has. I am currently attempting to gather names and info for a class action law suit vs Pepsi for product liability. If you suffer from this well know condition please cotact me so that I may bring it to the attention of lawyers willing to tackle this issue.Strength in email@example.com
My son has md mouth age 28 and it is the worse weight loss , can't eat, and a social life what is that? I found a dentist that will do the work for 3.600 we are trying to raise the funds so Jeremy can get his life back. Never had a cavity in his life until he started drinking mountain dew every day. By the way the ingredient in mountain dew has been banned from over 100 countries. It rots your bones and teeth boz for short supposed to be an preservative haha i have been at this for almost 2 years, and before I knew it his teeth started cracking away and underneath was black teeth. Please help if you can if you know of any dental foundation or charity that will help Jeremy. Thank you firstname.lastname@example.org

I was stuck behind a pickup at a red light. To my right was Grindstaff Chevrolet. To my left flowed the Wataga River, swift and cold. Ahead of me was a blue pickup — model unremembered.
In this pickup sat two, by the close proximity, lovers. The woman sat in the middle and her man was holding the wheel — the light was red, remember. The woman was eating something off her fingers, something that was obviously delicious, because she seemed in the midst of an orgasm. She turned and stuffed her coated fingers into her man's mouth so he could enjoy some of that heavenly concoction that had delivered her to such culinary heights.
As I sat and wondered what could it be that she licked and sucked so seductively from her nimble digits, she raised her other hand to push back a strand of dirty blond hair, and I saw it -
a can of potted meat.
I'll never forget her. She lived raw, she loved raw, and she ate her potted meat raw from her fingers.
