PURCHASE, N.Y., Jan. 2, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- Kicking off a new year always calls for celebration, but this year MTN DEW is taking it to another level. The Taco Bell® fan-favorite, MTN DEW BAJA BLAST, is officially turning 20 years old and to celebrate this momentous BAJAVERSARY, the brand is giving fans what they deserve: a full year of MTN DEW BAJA BLAST celebrations and the chance to buy their favorite flavor not only at Taco Bell, but also in bottles and cans all-year in 2024 in stores nationwide for the first time.

"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.

"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."

A milestone as important as the 20th BAJAVERSARY deserves equally epic celebrations and MTN DEW is bringing its fans along for the ride – with an ice-cold BAJA BLAST in hand. In a promotion sponsored by MTN DEW, fans have a chance to earn rewards just for enjoying a BAJA BLAST, no matter where they Do the DEW.
