Ok, I hear of more and more people who claim to be addicted to Mountain Dew. I have friends and co-workers who say they need a dew everyday just to get by, or they have terrible headaches. Anyone else out there experience things like this? Is it really addictive?

philjas is right. It's definitely the amount of caffeine in Mountain Dew that they're addicted to, although I also think the amount of sugar & carbonation also have something to do with it. I'm sure that if your co-workers & friends drank coffee in place of their mountain dew, they'd probably be just as satisfied and wouldn't have a headache. Whenever I go without caffeine for more than 8 hours or so (..I'm horribly addicted, as well), I get horrible migraines, too.

It's the caffeine they're addicted to. Mountain Dew has more caffeine than colas. I can't stand the taste of Mountain Dew myself, but between cola and coffee, I'm sure I'm addicted to caffeine.
