We all get a belated Christmas gift this year! PepsiCo’s Mountain Dew has a new Major Melon soda that is being advertised as a life-changing flavor and, based off of the looks of the drink, we believe it.
Talk about the new Mountain Dew first began in September and leaked materials showed that it would be released in January 2021. It looks like we are being graced with Major Melon early, because it’s already been spotted on shelves by Instagram accounts, including @i_need_a_snack_.
The permanent addition is watermelon-flavored, so it’ll give you those summer vibes you might be missing in the midst of winter. Keep your eyes peeled the next time you go to the store, because Major Melon comes in bottles and cans. It’ll be hard to miss the bright pink beverage!
Both Walmart and Meijer have the new Mountain Dew listed on its websites, and we’re betting that’s just the beginning on availability. Something tells us that your taste buds are going to be so happy.

It seems like every season Mountain Dew is releasing a new flavor to match the time of year. Just look at the VooDew flavor for Halloween and Snap’d flavor for Christmas! This latest one doesn’t really go with the season it’s being unveiled in, but we’d drink Mountain Dew Major Melon any time.
As detailed in leaked materials on Reddit, the new Mountain Dew soda tastes like watermelon. It is expected to launch in January 2021 and will be a permanent flavor. Mountain Dew Major Melon has Super Bowl launch support, so there’s a chance that we’ll be seeing a commercial featuring the new soda during the Big Game.
Over Labor Day weekend, someone posted a picture on Reddit showing the watermelon-flavored Mountain Dew in a marketing survey. Is that confirmation that Major Melon is really happening? Well, maybe those survey results will help decide, but it’s certainly a step in the right direction.
As long as all goes according to plan, we won’t have to wait long to get the soda in our hands. Plus, it appears that it’ll also be coming in a Zero Sugar flavor, just like the original Zero Sugar that came out earlier this year. You’ll be able to get Major Melon in all core packs, including cans and bottles.
While we weren’t expecting to crack open a watermelon-flavored soda in the winter, there’s no stopping us from getting this Mountain Dew once it’s officially out.
