Mountain Dew?

Games, Gaming and Hardware
I've seen a few comments lately about the Wow player and a love for Mountain Dew. Is this an actual stereotype?

I recently had some Mountain Dew and it brought back fond memories of when I was boy. I was surprised at the amount of caffeine in it and the "charge" it gave me.

Now I drink it all the time at work and my production has gone up considerably. I am a carpenter so having the extra "charge" during the day helps.

I don't know anyone else who drinks dew and I thought it was funny to see it referenced to wow players.

It's associated with pretty much all gaming. I think it came from the Starcraft and Halo LAN parties from the last 15 years.
I hate Mountain Dew.

but it's commonly associated with the redneck and unruly teenger images.
the 'throwback' mountain dew... does that have that fructose corn syrup in it as well? i love mountain dew but i am concerned about health
I drink the diet stuff since chemicals are probably safer than that amount of sugar lol. Plus I hate feeling full from fluids.

I've found an ancient bottle of Mountain Dew before that actually said something about redneck or hill billy on it. Thought it was funny. Looked like it was from the 60's or 70's.

Stop drinking it NOW!!! im actually being very serious. High fructose corn syrup cant be proccessed by the body. This gets stored into the midsection and hips (not the good way for hips either). This can lead to many issues, all of which will effect your health negatively. Please for the love of the dentist, the want to not look like a tub of lard shoved in a pair of overhauls, and the solvency of Medicare PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE stop drinking that stuff pronto.


This is true if you are allergic to exercise and fantasize about Michelle Obama.
I used to drink Mountain Dew when I still drank soda. I definitely like it more than Coke or Pepsi, not just for the caffeine.

Sounds like a metabolism issue. I drink two-three a day, and have stayed a consistent weight for ~10 years now.
Well at least I'm not the only one who likes it. Doesn't seem like your standard wow stereotype either too.
How did this get moved to games gaming and hardware? lol
Beer >> Mountain Dew--or any other pop for that matter.

Just sayin'...

Lol this is a very good question.

but I just drank a bottle of mountain Dew.

Also to the person talking about the high fructose corn syrup,

You can be perfectly healthy and still drink mtn dew. Its just when people are lazy and dont do anything, which even then the person is probably going to still have issues.
Cheetos and Mountain Dew.

A lot of things have aspartame too, which is a known carcinogen at your body's temperature.
Actually, corn syrup solids are digested by the liver unlike other sugars so it can be hard on that. And you always pay for stimulants later.
