U.P. Mountain Dew bottle debuts

By  | 

LANSING, MI (WILX) - Exciting news for Michigan, especially those Yoopers in the U.P.

This is one of the limited edition U.P. Mountain Dew bottles.

Sunday, the residents of the Upper Peninsula finally got their own Mountain Dew Upper Peninsula bottle.

This all came about after the Yoopers challenged Mountain Dew.

It seems the soft drink bottler made the mistake of misplacing the U.P. on the "Dewnited States" map.

That map was a recent promotion by the soft drink company.

On Sunday, dozens stood in line for hours to get their hands on the limited edition bottles.

The company's apology doesn't stop there.

From Monday through Wednesday, Yoopers will be able to dunk Mountain Dew employees in a dunk tank at the U.P. State Fair.
