MTN DEW Pitch Black
MTN DEW is welcoming back MTN DEW Pitch Black to its roster for a limited time beginning January 2023.
MTN DEW Pitch Black made its debut in 2004, later returning from 2016 to 2019.

Teisseire is adding a new range of syrups to its portfolio in Belgium: exclusively for soda machines.
The four new syrups – Blood Orange; Strawberry, Lime & Mint; Cherry Cola Zero Sugar; and Orange Zero Sugar – have been specially developed for soda machines as Britvic and its French syrup brand moves towards reducing packaging and waste.
Sarah Webster, Sustainable Business Director at Britvic, said: "Enabling syrup lovers to flavor sparkling water at home is a key milestone on our sustainability journey. It reduces the volume of packaged liquid transported on our roads which helps lower our carbon footprint.
“From the comfort of their own homes, consumers can easily flavor their sparkling water using the dosing cap on the Teisseire bottle. As a finishing touch – add ice cubes, along with a slice of lemon or lime. The syrups can also make tasty bubbly cocktails – simply add a splash of alcohol to your drink.”
