Mtn Dew began creating Halloween VooDew flavors in 2019 revealing on October 30 of that year that the flavor was Candy Corn. While some fans loved it, others didn’t think the taste was obvious enough. “I can’t taste it at all, just tastes like Skittles,” wrote one Redditor. “I don’t like Skittles, but I like candy corn. And yet, I don’t like Voo Dew.
Mtn Dew’s 2020 VooDew mystery flavor was revealed to be Fruit Candy Explosion, with a taste that reminded fans of a mashup of all the Skittles or Starburst flavors. VooDew’s 2021 flavor was an equally nondescript Fruit Candy Chews, with a video revealed by VooDewGrim’s Twitter account that showed him dancing, lounging, and frolicking in a manner similar to a perfume commercial.
2022’s VooDew flavor split many fans. Some were convinced it was Pixie Sticks, and others guessed Sour Patch Kids or Airheads. The truth, Sour Candy Flavor, wasn’t too far off. To celebrate VooDew drinks, Pepsi Co also revealed a limited-edition Ghosts of VooDew Past, which included two cans of 2019’s Candy Corn, three cans of 2020’s Fruit Candy Explosion, and one can of 2021’s Fruit Candy Chews.
Along with the new Cherry Airhead VooDew release, Mtn Dew fans got an extra treat this year with the announcement that the original Halloween drink, Pitch Black, would be making a limited-time comeback as a 7-Eleven or Speedway Slurpee. Happy Halloween!
