The normalization of Baja Blast has reduced all the novelty it used to have, thus diminishing the appeal of the flavor. If anyone can have Baja Blast at any time, either by buying a case or ordering at Taco Bell, then it's no longer sought after.

To understand this, reverse the roles. Imagine if Crystal Pepsi was still being sold in-stores. People would not revile it anymore, they would just see it the same way most of us view seltzer water.

        Maybe you're like all those Japanese people who think root beer has a disgusting flavor.
        Baja Blast is probably the best soda ever invented. Coca-Cola used to be my favorite but when Baja Blast came out in the mid-2000s it blew my mind how good it was.

    this thought process is so goddamned consoooooooomer it's rope worthy.

    are you still under the age of 12?

      crows were tested once with two groups, one who had a food dispenser that released food every time the button was pressed, on one group who had a food dispenser that released food randomly when the button was pressed
      the first group would only press the button when they were hungry, the second group would constantly press the button regardless of if they were hungry or how much food they already had
      novelty is an aspect of nature not consumerism

        novelty is an aspect of immaturity, anon.

            Animals don't display maturity or immaturity because they are animals. But if you were to use human terms to describe the mental facilities of a bird, immature could be used since crows brains ARE immature compared to an adult human. Dumbass manchild.

              I don't think I'll read a dumber sentence than this for a long time. FYI all animals are born immature and develop to maturity.

    I can't buy one. Any time I see it somewhere on instacart and try to buy it the buyer tells me it was sold out. And this is during an excrption year when it's actually supposed to stay in stores for longer than a month. Even worse during any other year.

    Baja Blast tastes like shitty lime-flavored toothpaste, and I don't know why people defend it.

        Opposite for me. I hate drinking sodas at fast food restaurants and only really enjoy them in can form. Was why I was so pissed off back when Baja Blast lost to Pitch Black in that 2016 contest for deciding which would be a permanent store stocked flavor.

        This isn't possible since Mt. Dew i mixed at 15% where all other fountain sodas are mixed at 10%

    I'm guessing Taco Bell had a binding agreement with Mt. Dew. It was sold, only by them, for X amount of years, then it hit the shelves.

      i have yet to find baja blast zero and i've checked multiple stores i can only find the diabetes version sad 🙁

        I've never been overweight into my late 30s and therefore am probably never going to be at risk for type 2 diabetes.
        But I can't even find the regular kind of Baja Blast at stores.
        I tried a different grocery store today and they were sold out, same as last one. Had to settle for Code Red instead. Probably the only way I can get some Baja Blast cans for home is if I order it through Amazon.

    I really like Crystal Pepsi. I wish it was just a regular flavor. Also it looks weird mixed with whisky but I was surprised how well it still mixed regardless of the look.

    Whats the most Bajas you think you could rock in a 24 hour period? I know a guy who downed 25 bottles/cans of these (can't remember which). Pretty sure he also killed an orange crush that day too. Mad.

    I never ate taco bell but I always heard of baja blast being really good. I think it was a good advertising strategy because that's probably the drink I would have gotten with my meal. Still haven't gone to taco bell tho

    i didn't care for Baja Blast when it came out, thought it tasted kind of like lotion. But after a few years of dining at the Bell regularly, I'd still try it at the soda station occasionally, it started to grow on me. Then it clicked.
    Baja Blast was engineered by top food scientists to perfectly compliment the flavor of Taco Bell. I was wrong. I actually loved Baja Blast and I still do.
