Mtn Dew® Kickstart™

This year, Mtn Dew® is introducing four new flavors to the Mtn Dew® Kickstart™ line-up – and we’re planning to head to the Taste of Tacoma®  to bring this to the masses! We’ll host 4 interactive flavor buttons on the side of the truck. As fans step up to get a sample, they’ll pick their flavor, which will illuminate the entire truck, then dispense a unique decal, taken directly from the artwork of the vehicle itself. Some of these decals will award prizes at random on the backside, giving a lucky few a chance to win random prizes or special giveaways. Stop by the Mtn Dew® Kickstart™ tour for your sample & chance to win!
