Diet Mountain Dew is a no-calorie Mountain Dew that was first introduced in 1988.[1] It was formerly known as "Sugar-Free Mountain Dew" until 1986, when it was given its current name. In 2006 Diet Mountain Dew was reformulated with a new "Tuned Up Taste", using a blend of sucralose, aspartame, and acesulfame potassium as sweeteners. The previous formulation was sweetened exclusively with aspartame.[2] In limited areas in the United States, Diet Mountain Dew has treated water instead of carbonated water as a fountain drink.

In popular culture[edit]

There is a song by well known songstress Lana Del Rey about this drink, called "Diet Mountain Dew".
