Perplexing: Mountain Dew’s Name

The drink’s name is Mountain Dew…
This evokes thoughts of fresh air, deep wooded forests, sparkling springs flowing from melting glaciers, and the grass of rocky terrain sparkling moistly as the sun rises. 

…but the drink’s color is acid green
It more closely resembles Mr. Clean® Summer Citrus All-Purpose Liquid Cleaner than a caffeine-filled bubbling treat inspired by nature. Clearly a misnomer.

Additional Fun Fact: While casually browsing Dew’s website I was thrilled to discover that the soda contains a great deal of orange juice…and discouraged to observe that it also contains brominated vegetable oil. Gross. I didn’t drink it before, but I certainly don’t plan on it now!
