PepsiCo, the parent company of Mountain Dew, is launching a caffeinated morning beverage that could be an alternative to coffee.

According to the Mayo Clinic, a 16-ounce Starbucks Latte contains approximately 150 milligrams (mg) of caffeine, and a Starbucks Pike Place brewed coffee has 330 mg. A similarly sized can of the popular energy drinks Monster and Red Bull contain roughly 160 mg of caffeine.

Talk about a morning jolt.

But for those who don’t like the taste of coffee or energy drinks, how do you get that extra ‘pick-me-up’ in the morning? Tea? Maybe. A can of soda? No way, that’s not a morning drink – until now.
