Syrup or Jelly??? Which do you prefer? With your mice that is… We hope we don’t ruin your appetite for breakfast with this one.
t’s another reason not to do the Dew.
It can turn a mouse to jelly.
PepsiCo may have succeeded in grossing out customers while attempting to defend itself against a man complaining he found a mouse in his can of Mountain Dew in 2009.
Ronald Ball of Wisconsin claimed that he purchased a can of the bright green, supercaffeinated citrus-flavored soda only to discover mid-sip that there was a dead rodent inside, according to the Madison Record.
Ball claimed that he sent the mouse in a Mason jar to Pepsi and that the company destroyed the evidence.
He is seeking damages of $50,000.
PepsiCo is fighting back with some pretty disgusting proof: a scientist who testified on behalf of the company said that there was no way a mouse could have made it through the bottling process intact, that its body would have dissolved into a “jelly-like substance.”
The strange details emerged last week when PepsiCo asked a judge for more time to prepare a motion to dismiss the lawsuit.
PepsiCo will likely defend itself against the gross allegations in a Wisconsin courtroom on Jan. 11.
That’s just gross… Sorry if we ruined your breakfast.

How does that make you feel about Mountain Dew now?
