To be honest, the Dew is probably the same but the green in the bottles look to be different making the liquids inside appear different.

I used to be a Mountain Dew addict. I am not proud of this, but I can say with absolute certainty that the smaller/skinnier bottles (>16 oz) are made with a slightly lighter green plastic, and the bigger ones (<20 oz) are made with a slightly darker green plastic. The bigger bottles are also made of a thicker plastic, so that could also effect the color.

I guarantee you, OP, if you pour out the actual liquid of both bottles into clear glasses, they're the exact same shade of almost-but-not-quite-piss-yellow. It's the bottles themselves that are different.

Honestly, as someone who used to drink a minimum of two 20-oz bottles of Dew a day... I wouldn't really recommend it.

At least drink the one made with real sugar. The corn syrup ones are just okay at best.

It's like piss yellow with a little bit of Prestone green antifreeze.

The one on the left is 20

DumpstahKat t1_j9iiwij wrote

With all due respect, you are 100% incorrect.

The only Mountain Dew bottles above the 20 oz are the gigantic Liter sizes, and those are too chunky to fit in even the more generously-sized car cupholder. The Liter sizes are also shaped very differently (they don't have that narrower grip part), so they're pretty visually distinctive. So the taller one (on the right) can't be anything other than the 20 oz.

Whereas the 13? 16? (can't remember which) sized bottle is narrower overall, shorter, and has a noticeably smaller cap, so the one on the left is 100% not the 20 oz. And the only bottles smaller than the 13? oz are the glass bottles and the tiny 8 oz. It can't be an 8 oz because the 8 oz bottles don't have that narrow grip bit at all and tend to also have black caps, not green.

ETA: I'll be damned, I was the one who was 100% incorrect. The one on the right is a 1-Liter, and the one on the left is the 20 oz. This is why you shouldn't get addicted to Mountain Dew, kids: it rots your brain cells and isn't even good for being an accurate know-it-all regarding Mountain Dew bottles on the Internet.

danish07 t1_j9j8n4q wrote

The one on the left is 20 oz. A 20 oz bottle of Mountain Dew has 77g of carbs and 77g of sugar. You can zoom in on the nutritional facts.

DumpstahKat t1_j9ja97r wrote

Well god damn it, you're right.

Even disregarding the nutritional facts, I made such a big deal out of the 1 Liters not having those damn grippy bits and didn't even look closely enough at the bottle on the right to realize that it didn't have a damn grippy bit. It's smooth-waisted.

I'd thank you for pointing out my mistake but I'm too busy eating my own words and being salty about it.

I've switched to diet to cut down my sugar intake, but the standard ol' yeet water is pretty sugary and delicious. Also terrible for you, in any flavor lol.

Cousin1tt t1_j9ii5rv wrote

You actually get more drunk with diet sodas because of the aspartame in the drink. Any bartender will tell you this. The aspartame is actually worse for you than the sugar (albeit still not great because of the amount in the drink) many studies done on the adverse effects of any alternative sweetener.

Orgeweight t1_j9iwxd9 wrote

No argument, here. I'm very easily addicted to substances, and decided to play the odds in the short term, and keep my weight down. If I can get off of 3rd shift, and don't feel the need to shove so much caffeine down my throat, I'm going to try to switch to some sort of tea or something. TBH, I'm just happy that I'm only addicted to caffeine and nicotine, these days. Vicodin and I have gone some rounds.

Shrink-flation. You pay the same price for less. Same idea has been applied to cereals with narrower boxes and many other products at the store.

Mountain is more yellow like the left one. The bottles are green tinted like Sprite Bottles were. The left has less green. If Pepsi follows coke eventually it'll be pure piss color. Though that may be why they don't do that, fuck recycling. Not going to let our consumers know they're drinking piss.

Mountain Dew itself is yellowish green. The bottle on the left is mostly clear so you see the real color. The bottle on the right is dark green so it looks different.

steelerfaninperu t1_j9jdq1l wrote

The key ingredient is orange juice. Mountain Dew contains orange juice, which of course is a product that is subject to the whims of nature and cycles of growth and harvest.

I always personally found the bottles that expire in November to taste best.
