It was over a year ago that images began popping up of PepsiCo’s Mountain Dew holiday sip, a gingerbread-flavored soda. Originally, it appeared to be called Snap’d, but now we know the official name is Mountain Dew Gingerbread Snap’d. Why do we know this? Because the brand has finally confirmed that the flavor is happening … for the 2021 holiday season!

Mountain Dew Gingerbread Snap’d is described as “DEW with a Blast of Artificial Gingerbread Flavor” on the bottle. The packaging is as festive as could be, complete with gingerbread men, red and green icing, and Santa Claus hats.

“Pop open a bottle and cozy up to a citrusy scene of holiday nostalgia with a warm, sugary scent of fresh-baked gingerbread that’s sure to put your Aunt Tina’s cookies to shame,” read press materials.

Mountain Dew hasn’t confirmed when exactly this new soda will be hitting stores, but we do know it’ll happen before the end of the year. Get excited, DEW Nation!

It looks like the holiday season won’t just be filled with Mountain Dew Merry Mash-Up. The PepsiCo brand is reportedly releasing Mountain Dew Snap’d, which will add Christmas spice for winter sipping.

The new soda started circulating on Reddit about a month ago, and people were quick to jump in with their thoughts. After all, Mountain Dew Snap’d is gingerbread-flavored, which isn’t exactly a typical flavor. Based off of that information, we can only assume that the light brown, orange-ish drink tastes like a combination of ginger, cloves, and cinnamon.

Reddit user TigersFan1872 posted photos of what seems to be ad materials for the upcoming Mountain Dew. On them, we see the slogan “Nice to Be Naughty” with mischievous gingerbread cookie men as they’re having a snowball fight. The packaging enough has us excited to give it a try!

The materials also say that Mountain Dew Snap’d is expected to launch in December 2021. Sadly, it doesn’t look like we’ll have the new gingerbread soda this year, but that just means next Christmas will be even spicier, with the 20-ounce bottles and 12-pack cans.

Now let’s address what we’re all thinking: gingerbread-flavored Mountain Dew doesn’t sound good. Ginger ale is one thing, but a gingerbread-flavored soda is another. We’re going to put our faith in PepsiCo, however, because this is the same team that brought us Mountain Dew Southern Shock and Mountain Dew Spark. So who are we kidding? It’s probably going to be surprisingly delicious.
