Baja Blast is a Mountain Dew flavor. Its standard Taco Bell tagline is "A tropical lime storm" while its store release tagline is "DEW with a blast of Natural and Artificial tropical lime flavor."
Baja Blast was originally released exclusively to Taco Bell restaurants in 2004, having been chemically formulated to taste best with their food.
Baja Blast Freeze
Beginning in August 2012, select Taco Bell locations began offering "Baja Blast Freeze", an icy variant of Baja Blast similar to the restaurant's pre-existing Frutista Freeze line. After this test-release, the Baja Blast Freeze was added to the menu permanently beginning January 31, 2013.
Diet Baja Blast
In January 2014, Taco Bell added a diet variation to Baja Blast to its menu alongside the new Sangrita Blast.
In early 2014, information began leaking through via the internet about a limited store-shelves release of Baja Blast later that year. In March 2014, images began to surface of Baja Blast's bottle form. Baja Blast was first confirmed here, and has been posted about on the official Mountain Dew Facebook page many times. Baja Blast began its in-stores release on May 5th and will remain available for a limited run.
Mountain Dew Baja Blast is a tropical lime flavored soda, and is blue-green in color.
- Until the revelation of Baja Blast's official in-stores release in 2014, many had speculated on the internet whether such a release would take place, and many images of fake bottles had circulated.
