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.
