Mountain Dew Presents a Breakfast Drink?

Mountain Dew has announced they are releasing a new breakfast drink.

It has 5% juice, Vitamins B and C and a “extra” jolt of caffeine.

The drink is called “Kickstart” and Pepsi is quick to point out it is not an energy drink- it has much less caffeine than Red Bull or any other popular energy drink.

Although Kickstart may look like an energy drink, it has far less caffeine, at 92 milligrams for a 16-ounce can. A comparable amount of regular Mountain Dew would have 72 milligrams of caffeine while a can of PepsiCo’s Amp energy drink has 142 milligrams, according to the Center for Science in the Public Interest.

By comparison, a 16-ounce cup of Starbucks coffee has 330 milligrams of caffeine.

So what do you think- Mountain Dew for breakfast?
