Does Mountain Dew Have Caffeine?

Question: Does Mountain Dew have caffeine?

Answer: Mountain Dew is a citrus-flavored soda made by Pepsi. It is loved by many partly because it contains a higher amount of caffeine in comparison to other soda beverages. A 12-ounce serving (one can) of original Mountain Dew contains 54 mg of caffeine. A 20-ounce has 91 mg of caffeine.

Mountain Dew also makes other flavors beyond the original. We have provided the caffeine content for other Mountain Dew products below. You will notice that the caffeine content is similar in all products listed except Game Fuel, which is slightly higher.
