It’s not often that a tasty food offering in another country is brought to the United States — we’re still longing to try some of these international Pepsi flavors. Typically, we just have to live with the fact that we’ll never get to try it for ourselves and try to move on, but Mountain Dew is changing that by offering us its “Violet With Grape Flavor” soda from Japan.
The “uber-rare product,” as it’s described, was announced at FYE stores and online on Aug. 10. There is a limited supply of the bright purple can, so we’re happy to report that it’s still in stock.
“The Violet version has delicious grape flavor and contains vegetable and elderberry juice to give it a unique taste,” the description says. Elderberry is a dark purple berry and has been used for medicinal purposes.
You can get a can of Mountain Dew Violet at FYE for $5.99. Remember, this is a super exclusive flavor, so we say that it’s worth the price tag. There is a limit of 12 per customer, which means we’ll be dressing in a disguise to get our hands on more, if need be.
We don’t have an original flavor that’s close to Violet, unless the Berry Monsoon is at all similar — which we doubt — so Mountain Dew fans shouldn’t hesitate to give it a try while it’s here!
