I love Mountain Dew (original and some of the flavors, particularly Pitch Black). I love lime.
So I was pretty sure that I’d be disappointed by the Tropical/Lime Baja Blast flavor which has crept out of the depths of Taco Bell in normal, standardized containerized form for a limited time.
And of course, I was. There was a blast of somewhat limey smell when I first cracked it, but it sort of dissipated, oddly. Yeah, hint of generic ‘tropical’. Vague hint of lime. I would have been happier with a full-on, Lime Blast flavor.
It’s not bad, easy enough to finish the bottle I guess. Just not that exciting. Super glad I got the bottle instead of having to buy a 12 pack.
Also: Bring back Pitch Black for another run, it’s been long enough.
Found at: Cumberland Farms on 146 in Clifton Park. Also saw it at CVS. It’s clearly around if you look.
