What sells more Mountain Dew or Pepsi?

Answered by Phillip Nicastro

Well, let me start by saying that I’m a big fan of both Mountain Dew and Pepsi. I’ve been drinking them for as long as I can remember, and they both hold a special place in my heart. But when it comes to sales, there’s no denying that Mountain Dew falls slightly behind Pepsi.

According to the last available sales data from PepsiCo in 2011, Mountain Dew had sales of around $7 billion. Now, that’s no small number by any means, but it does fall short of Pepsi’s sales figures. Unfortunately, I don’t have the exact sales numbers for Pepsi in that year, but it is safe to assume that it surpassed Mountain Dew in terms of revenue.

Mountain Dew, with its bold and unique flavor, has a dedicated fan base that spans across different age groups. Its popularity has grown steadily over the years, and it has become a cultural icon in its own right. I’ve seen people go crazy for limited edition flavors and even collect Mountain Dew merchandise. It’s no wonder that it has become PepsiCo’s second most popular beverage brand.

On the other hand, Pepsi is a household name and has been a staple in the soda industry for decades. It has a wide consumer base and is known for its refreshing taste. Pepsi’s sales are boosted by its global presence and marketing campaigns. From celebrity endorsements to memorable Super Bowl commercials, Pepsi has always managed to stay in the spotlight.

Now, while Mountain Dew may not outsell Pepsi, it still holds its own in the beverage market. Its loyal fan base and unique flavor keep it relevant and ensure its steady sales. Plus, PepsiCo continues to innovate and introduce new flavors and variations of Mountain Dew to cater to changing consumer preferences.

While Mountain Dew may not sell as much as Pepsi, it still has a significant market presence and a dedicated following. Both brands have their strengths and continue to thrive in the competitive beverage industry. So, whether you prefer the citrus kick of Mountain Dew or the classic taste of Pepsi, there’s no denying that both have a place in the hearts (and shopping carts) of consumers.
