Mountain Dew has always prided themselves on never been afraid of taking risks and trying new things. You know, “Do the Dew.” With that in mind, they’re rolling out a new limited edition hot sauce and the flavor was chosen by the people. Who said democracy was dead?

According to Guilty Eats, the soft drink brand ran a poll on Facebook and Twitter for fans to choose the type of pepper flavor for the new sauce. The choices were Peri-Peri, Fatalii, Habanero, and Datil.

Habanero won and Mountain Dew teamed up with NBA star Joel Embiid and Houston hot sauce maker iBurn to make the final product. So how is it? It’s described as having a nice balance of heat and Mountain Dew’s signature citrus flavor. Yup, each bottle of MTN Dew Hot Habanero Hot Sauce has non-caffeinated Mountain Dew in the mix.

If you want some, you’d better act quickly. Only 500 bottles of the new hot sauce are being produced. To get some, follow Mountain Dew’s social media channels and tell them what you’d put the hot sauce on. If you’re chosen, you’ll get a bottle of your own. Good luck!
