Welcome To Taste of States a place where we celebrate the weird and wonderful food of the United States of America. This can be everything from the snacks that are available for a limited time to the foods that are classic traditions at events such as Christmas and Thanksgiving! Each week we will explore the facts and the history surrounding a different food.


It is not unusual for the brand Mountain Dew to release new and unique flavours, well today we are going to look at a flavour that was released exclusively for the holidays. Near the middle of 2022, it was announced that Mountain Dew were releasing the flavour Fruit Quake – a dark red coloured drink that was the fourth holiday beverage by the brand.

The flavour of the drink was to represent seasonal, festive flavours of Christmas and of fruit cake. The slogan for the drink even stated it had a ‘blast of Artificial fruit cake flavour.’

The drink was released on 1st November 2022 and sold either 20 ounce bottles or as a 12 pack all the way through the seasonal period in the grocery stores up to the 31st December 2022.

From reading reviews online, there is a lot of comments about the fact that it has a lack of taste of fruit cake and it only really evident at the end of the sip when there is a hint of spice.
