Fact of the Day: Mountain Liquor

Mountain Dew was created in 1940 by Barney and Ally Hartman originally to mix with whiskey. Mountain Dew was also slang for moonshine. Pepsi acquired Mountain Dew in 1964 just as a stand-alone soda beverage.

I never liked Mountain Dew. Some teachers referred to it as "poor man's ritalin."
