It lacks a fluorescent dye for the color.
It needs a proper solvent such as diethyl phtalate ( any water RUINS the reaction )
TCPO the key ingredient in glow sticks( I assume that's the reaction they're shooting for because of the H202)
with a glow that vibrant you're going to have it react under basic conditions and Mountain dew is on the other end of the PH scale. While baking soda IS a base, the acidity of the soda will neutralize the mix leaving it at around a 5-8 range which is not good enough.

"Peroxides are also strong oxidizers and easily react with skin, cotton and wood pulp."

That was proven to be fake. I wanted to do a ******* experiment on this and I had to throw away all of my effort.
