Mountain Dew slammed for mislabeling Michigan’s Upper Peninsula: ‘I am not Wisconsin’ – Fox News

Mountain Dew is getting a bit of a geography lesson from the Midwest after releasing an ad that featured Michigan’s Upper Peninsula as being part of Wisconsin.

HAVING TOO MANY SUGARY DRINKS LINKED TO HIGHER CANCER RISK

The popular soft drink, owned by Pepsi Co., started a campaign marketing bottles for the “Dewnited States,” featuring a map of the nation with each state sporting a different pattern.

The fun design, however, sparked anger in the northern states after the Upper Peninsula of Michigan was colored with the same green and white outline as Wisconsin, instead of the red and black as the rest of Michigan.

On Twitter, those in the Upper Peninsula called out Mountain Dew for the oversight.
