Mountain Dew Freeze, the Side of a Cheesy Gordita Crunch

The reason why a Mountain Dew freeze was chosen over a fountain drink is because the slushy is icy which makes it so refreshing. The Mountain Dew freeze is a minty green color with the soda flavor of Mountain Dew with the taste of tropical lime, which is why the freeze is more preferable because a fountain drink is in a slushy. It only costs $1.99 for a medium 16-ounce, though during happy hour it only costs one dollar from 2-5 pm. It’s so delicious it even makes you want to drink it in the winter.         

Mountain Dew freezes go with literally ever meal, I love how refreshing it taste!”
