Bottled Mtn Dew Baja Blast Finally Coming to Stores, Vending Machines May 2014


It’s official guys: Taco Bell’s ten-year monopoly over Mtn Dew’s Baja Blast is finally over. Ding dong, the wicked witch is dead!

According to newly-leaked images from Instagram and Tumblr, the long-awaited bottled version of the cult-favorite, lime-flavored, blue-green soda will be available in stores starting May 2014. An Instagram photo by user ashlynavskum was uploaded last weekend revealing a refrigerator promotion for the upcoming release. This follows the recent roll-out of four brand new drinks, the Manzanita Sol, SoBe Lifewater Yumberry Pomegranate, Brisk Mango iced tea, and Brisk Half and Half, plus the Taco Bell-exclusive Mtn Dew Sangrita Blast and Diet Baja Blast, in January.



Mountain Dew has yet to make an official statement regarding the leaked images, but comments on a recent IGN forum suggest the PepsiCo order forms have already been sent out to vendors.

Can’t wait ’til May and can’t stand Taco Bell? Pro-tip: just mix regular Mtn Dew and blue Powerade. Y’all are welcome.


Del Taco Giving Away Free Samples on Select Wednesdays in May


With fast food chains constantly clamoring to offer guests the best value for the most profit, how is anyone supposed to differentiate themselves from the pack? Why, by just giving food away for free, of course!

To promote its new ‘Buck & Under’ and ‘New Tastes’ menus, Del Taco is letting guests choose one free item from either menu, with any purchase, on select Wednesday afternoons in May.

According to Brand Eating, May 8 and 15 will see the ‘Buck & Unders,’ which include the Mini Bacon Quesadilla and Real Strawberry Lemonade — while May 22 and May 29 will bring the ‘New Tastes,’ the Chili Cheese Fry Burrito, Fiery 6 Layer Burrito and Bacon Ranch Grilled Chicken Taco. The promotions will run each day from 3 pm to 9 pm.

Now if only other industries started following the Costco school of business. Yes Apple, I’m looking at you.
