Location - US, nation-wide, exclusive to 7-Eleven outlets

PepsiCo has launched a new Mountain Dew flavour exclusive to 7-Eleven's Big Gulp vending machines and which has been partnered with one of the company's snacks.

Mountain Dew Solar Flare, described as citrus flavoured with a “blast of tropical punch”, started rolling out in May to 7-Eleven stores across the US, PepsiCo said this week. The beverage is part of PepsiCo's innovation drive and is designed to be paired with Doritos Loaded, a melted cheese-filled nacho that is also launching in US 7-Eleven stores.

As part of its Doritos Loaded rollout, 7-Eleven will host five “Fully Loaded Fridays” between 25 July and 22 August. Customers who purchase an order of Doritos Loaded will receive a free 20oz bottle of Pepsi Made With Real Sugar, which was unveiled earlier this year.
