Local newspaper in the town, The Johnson City Press, cited the Beverage Digest newsletter in reporting that PepsiCo will begin testing the new drink in August in Tennessee and other states.
Tim Swecker, unit sales manager for Pepsi Beverages Company in Johnson City, says he is “really excited” about the new drink, which will have a malt flavor to it.
Swecker said the Mountain Dew product is known for testing new flavors, including Code Red and White Out. He says the new beverage pays a great tribute to Johnson City.
