If there’s one thing Taco Bell fans can count on (besides $20 dollars getting you enough food to feed a small village) it’s that the fast food chain remains dedicated to serving you MTN DEW Baja Blast anyway it can. From hot sauces to adult-beverages, that signature flavor profile can kick up any foodstuff. It also turns them into an unusual yellowish-green treat unlike any other treat, something that really stands out. That’s certainly true of the latest Taco Bell offering that’s soon to hit Taco Bell stores nationwide. Adventurous customers will be able to order up a dish of MTN DEW Baja Blast gelato.
Oh madone! We first heard about MTN DEW Baja Blast gelato. when Taco Bell announced it teamed up with its long-time collaborator MTN DEW to test a first-of-its-kind option for the restaurant in August of 2023. The MTN DEW Baja Blast gelato was, at that point, available exclusively available at the Taco Bell in Irvine, CA (4101 Campus Drive, Irvine, CA 92612). And it was only around “for two weeks or while supplies last.”
At the time, we bet it wouldn’t last for two weeks. How could it? Because while this isn’t the first frozen Baja Blast treat, it is the strangest. The regular menu Baja Blast Freeze seems pretty normal in comparison. There’s something very different about drinking a strange-colored liquid versus eating it. Especially gelato of all things. We needed to try it for ourselves, and now we’ll finally be able to. Taco Bell is bringing the Baja Blast gelato to restaurants nationwide.
An official release shares, “Taco Bell fans asked, and now the brand is delivering! First tested in 2023, the delectable gelato will be making its nationwide debut, giving fans more ways to celebrate the Baja Blast 20th year anniversary. The creamy and delicious treat is infused with the iconic BAJA BLAST Tropical Lime flavor and is a perfect complementary addition to any cheesy, spicy, saucy order on the Taco Bell menu.”
We’re excited to try this MTN Dew Baja Blast gelato. But we’re even more excited for the next wild thing MTN DEW will put its favorite drink in. If there’s one thing that’s certain, it’s that we can always count on Taco Bell to serve MTN DEW Baja Blast in any way it can.
