Taco Bell's New Mountain Dew Baja Blast Colada Freeze Is Everything We Want from a Summer Drink
In the church of Live Mas, Mountain Dew Baja Blast is holy water. The soda, sold exclusively at Taco Bell for almost all of its history, is such a beautiful elixir that folks will put up with a whole lot of shenanigans and unwelcome menu shifts in order to keep drinking the stuff.
And if you're the type of person who wishes they could just straight-up replace their blood with Baja Blast (do not attempt), you'll be very interested to learn that Mountain Dew and Taco Bell are teaming up on an even better way to sample this divine soda. Just in time for summer, they're dropping the Mountain Dew Baja Blast Colada Freeze.
So how do you improve on something that's already perfect? Well, besides freezing it so you can sip in cool comfort through even the most extreme heat wave, this thing blends in elements of the traditional pina colada, adding hints of coconut and pineapple alongside the existing tropical lime flavor of OG Baja Blast. That should make drinking this thing feel like you're going kiteboarding off the coast of a Caribbean island (on account of it being both heavily tropical and extreme).
Normally, a magical concoction like this will set you back about $2.59 for a regular size. But the good news is that the Mountain Dew Baja Blast Colada Freeze is just $1 during Taco Bell's Happier Hour, which runs from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. at participating locations. Use the money you saved to buy a nip from the closest liquor store and spike this thing with some rum, and boom you've got a DIY frozen tropical cocktail that probably tastes amazing.
So while this limited-edition offer won't be around forever, you can bet that it'll make your summer at least a little bit better. Go forth, disciple of Baja Blast, and Live Mas.
