You no longer have to go to Taco Bell for your Baja Blast fix

It's possible, although not recommended, to drink an entire case in one evening.

Baja Blast is a Mountain Dew flavor, originally only available from esteemed Mexican culinary hotspot Taco Bell. The brand’s tagline when associated with Taco Bell is “a tropical lime storm,” which sounds to us like either complete word salad or the beginning of a potentially brilliant found poem. Your call.

Baja Blast was released exclusively from Taco Bell starting in 2004. Formulated as a special Taco Bell-pairing drink, the blue-green soda quickly developed a cult following. In 2012, Baja Blast Freeze, a frozen-drink version similar to a Slurpee or Icee, was added to select Taco Bell locations.

In the summer of 2014, fans of the drink were delighted by the announcement that Baja Blast would be available, for a limited time, in stores. No longer would they have to trek all the way to Taco Bell for their Baja Blast fixes: they can now pick up a case at the local Wal-Mart and chug it with impunity. Except from their teeth. And kidneys.
