But you’ll have to act quickly, because 2024 is the 20th anniversary of this iconic soda flavor – and the craze is is building up! To commemorate this major milestone, PepsiCo is shipping bottles and cans of this flavor all-year in 2024, in stores nationwide for the first time. After that – I believe you can only get this drink at Taco Bell restaurants, as a fountain drink.

What Is So Special About Mountain Dew Baja Blast?

In 2004, the Baja blast flavor was released as an exclusive flavor for Taco Bell restaurants. Since then, this tropical citrus flavored drink has garnered so much popularity that PepsiCo decided to release it in stores for the first time ever, in 2024.

Here’s what JP Bittencourt, Vice President of Marketing at MTN DEW had to say about this event.

MTN DEW BAJA BLAST has cemented its place as a fan-favorite flavor in pop culture and as a staple in countless Taco Bell orders, so we knew we had to celebrate its 20th anniversary in a big way. Nothing’s better than giving fans what they’ve asked for, with a few additional surprises to keep the celebration going all year long. Thank you to all the BAJA BLAST lovers over the last 20 years. Because of you, everyone nationwide can now buy the beloved flavor in-stores and as always, at Taco Bell, all year long and earn rewards while doing so… that’s a win-win.

This iconic flavor should be available at your local grocery stores, in both can and bottle form. You can also get it on Amazon – try my link here: Mountain Dew Baja Blast.

Does Baja Blast Have Caffeine?

Yes – it does. But it only has about 54 mg of caffeine so it’s not as strong as an energy drink but slightly higher than the 41 mg contained in a can of Dr Pepper.
