The generic Safeway imitation of the highly popular beverage Mountain Dew. Each 12 oz can containss 190 calories, and contains the following: carbonated water, high fructose corn syrup, citric acid, sodium benzoate, orange juice concentrate, sodium citrate, caffeine, natural flavors, (two ingredients I can't remember off-hand but will add later), and of course, yellow 5.

The major difference between Mountain Breeze and the original Mountain Dew, aside from the price, is that Moutain Dew actually tastes alright as it starts going a little flat, whereas the aforementioned knock-off tastes terrible. As a person who buys several 12-packs of each per week (Mountain Breeze runs about 24 cans for US$3 at the time of this writing, but Mountain Dew is on sale right now for 24 cans/US$5), I feel I have the authority to make such judgements.

Also, Mountain Breeze is completely revolting when it is warm. Hence, I buy the clone for home use, and the real Mountain Dew for the workplace, where there is no fridge.
