How would you like to start your mornings with an ice-cold Mountain Dew? Yow. But that's exactly what Pepsico, owner of the brand, wants you to do. The company today announced the debut of Mountain Dew Kickstart, a caffeinated juice drink it hopes will be a viable morning alternative to coffee or tea.

It's no surprise that Mountain Dew -- already long-known for it caffeine content -- is attempting to get into the breakfast drink market, said Jeff Klineman, editor of the BevNet online and print trade publications. "For a long time before energy drinks, there was Mountain Dew," Klineman said. "It was the official drink of gamers and truckers before Monster and Rockstar came along."

The only surprise, he said, was that it took Mountain Dew so long to come out with an official breakfast drink. Already on the market are caffeine-juice combinations Monster Khaos and Rockstar Punched.

    Give it a rest! sometimes people and companies should just stick to what they're good at. Sometimes market saturation is a turn off to consumers.

    Don't get me wrong on this. I love drinking Code Red every once in awhile but Mountain Dew in the morning would be horrible. It's something for those idiots who drink Monster in the morning. Most of the people that I know who do that complain about some sort of stomach ache later. I'd rather ruin my body with coffee.

    Why someone would choose 'cold' at the beginning of each day is beyond me ;p

    I prefer to start my day in a strong and steamy sort of way...
