When it was first launched, the Mountain Dew Kickstart drinks were branded as sodas for the morning and evening—now, to up its appeal as a healthy energy-boosting beverage, the drinks are being made with bases of super hydrating coconut water.

The two new morning flavors featuring coconut water include Pineapple Orange Mango and Strawberry Kiwi. These drinks blend the iconic flavor of Mountain Dew with various fruit juices, coconut water and a little kick of caffeine. Packaged like energy drinks in tall metal cans, these beverages straddle the line between an ordinary sweet fruit juice that you'd drink for breakfast and an energy drink that you'd use to fuel up part way through the day.
