A priest (dressed in black) would stand out clearly on a mountain of (white) sugar. If you are accused of not being able to see such a priest, it means you are unaware or ignorant of something which is clear and obvious to most people

Is Mountain Dew made with real sugar?

Yes, no (or, rather, "only partially"), and maybe.Pepsi has recently (Dec 2009) released something called "Mountain Dew Throwback" which is made with sucrose only rather than "high fructose corn sweetener." Sucrose is what most people mean when they say "real sugar."Regular Mountain Dew is made at least partially with high fructose corn sweetener, which is a mixture of fructose and glucose.However, fructose and glucose are both "sugars" in a chemistry sense, so even that is technically made with sugar... just not table sugar (cane sugar/beet sugar), which is sucrose.
