Click pic to view comments - Semi-international sighting: Mountain Dew Semi-international sighting: Mountain Dew
Posted: 23:47 Sun 20-Dec-2009. Price: 89p per can. Location: Charing Cross tube station, London.
"Michele" reports: On my daily commute, I spotted a sign with a Mountain Dew can on it. Curious, I ventured towards the shop, and indeed, they have Mountain Dew! It's the made-in-Philippines version, with black cans, but it's Dew. The location is in Charing Cross tube station - or right next to it. Essentially, instead of going in through the main entrance on the Strand (next to the Boots and bus/taxi thing) cross the street and go down some stairs. The store to the right is called Paperchase and sells pens or something like that, I can't remember what the store on the left was.

The stairs lead down to the tube station, but as soon as you go down the stairs there are two stores - one selling gym equipment and one selling drinks and sandwiches (his sign says something like Chokalicious and ID Photographs). The chap in the drinks and sandwiches store sells the Dew - he's quite friendly. He mentioned he wants to get Code Red as well in future. Oh yeah - and they're 89p a can, so cheaper than most online stores!

...Thanks "Michele" - this is a bit different to our usual sightings (the pic is actually of the cans you can get for 1.20-something from CyberCandy 5 mins away in Covent Garden), but worth a mention I thought because of a) continued speculation about an official UK launch, and b) the entertainingly detailed directions. And, because I probably won't post another sighting before next weekend, here's wishing everyone a happy snacking Christmas (and come back next Sunday for a review of 2009, and maybe the entire decade). Cheers!

Comment: Mountain Dew in super size cans is £1.60 at the Aussi pie shop outside Shepherd's Bush tube on the outside of the W12 shopping Centre.

The best price though is a 24 pack of those black can versions which is £13.65 or so from the Chinese Supermarket on the outskirts of Reading towards J11.

Comment: "you and your *kind*" - very good :)

And in the spirit of bizarre high-tech goodwill, I'm just reposting this online tip for anyone whose Pace Twin Freeview PVR now fails to start up for no immediately obvious reason. Happy viewing!

Hi,Are You Looking For A Recorder Because Your Pace Twin Has Locked Up,Won't Respond To The Remote ?

There Is A Problem With Itv Transmission Causing This!

Solution = Turn Off Box At Mains.

Remove While Box Is Off The Aerial Lead ( In From The Aerial), Wait 10 Seconds Then Turn Back On At Mains With Aerial Out, Wait Until Box Powers Up And Turns Itself To Standby.

Turn Box On With Remote ;Bingo You're Back In.

Select Bbc 1 And Turn Off At Mains, Connect Aerial ,Mains Back On,Wait For Box To Go Into Standby, Turn On With Remote;Wow.

Until Itv Sort The Problem (Pace Know As Well) Leave Box On, Or Only Go Into Standby From Bbc1

Comment: Hmph. Yes, your very kind too.

Re the Pace box, I understand Apple's tech support centre has a check box on their call system which says "RTFM", when logging what advice was given to callers...

Comment: There are about 5 or 6 shops in Southampton that sell Mountain Dew, all within 5-10 mins of my house, such as the Chinese supermarket on St Mary Street, the big international shop with the large fruit and veg section in Portswood High Street. It is generally 60 or 70p per can. They also do AW Root Beer in most places, and sarsaparilla cordial.

2010 relaunch of Mountain Dew in the UK

Comment: You can buy Mountain Dew in Cricklewood, north west London. It's made in Dubai and comes in 300ml cans (they were green cans but they are now black cans that say "New Edgy Look... Same Great Taste"). THEY ARE ONLY 50p PER CAN!

The shop is... Cricklewood Halal Best Meat & Grocery, 187 Cricklewood Broadway (near the junction with Cricklewood Lane), London, NW2 3HT - 020 8450 9506.

I've been buying Mountain Dew from this shop for months and they say getting hold of stock isn't a problem.

You can get the American Mtn Dew version (plus the Code Red and DEWmocracy flavours) for around £1.30 a can from CyberCandy (branches in Covent Garden, Islington, Birmingham, Brighton or online).

Comment: Does a web site actually count AS a web site when over half the items listed are out of stock?
