If you love Baja Blast from Mountain Dew, you’ll love this bit of news. The carbonated drink has popped up occasionally over the years, but never for very long. Yet, it still remains one of the brand’s most popular flavors, with its tropical lime taste.
Now, that unique flavor is inspiring something spicy.
In case you didn’t know, January 22 marks National Hot Sauce Day (don’t worry, it’s news to us, too). To celebrate this auspicious holiday, Mountain Dew has decided to partner up with a Houston-based sauce shop called iBurn to create a hot sauce with a signature fruity tinge.
So what can we expect?
“The new MTN DEW Baja Blast Hot Sauce merges the iconic tropical flavor of the fan-favorite MTN DEW Baja Blast with the heat from habanero peppers, green chiles, and jalapeño peppers for a taste straight from Baja Island!” states the description.
And in true Baja Blast style, the hot sauce is blue!
But those who want to taste the spicy stuff will have to have a fair bit of luck on their side…
Mountain Dew has decided to make only 750 bottles of the sauce—all of which can only be won. The competition on the soft drink’s website involves selecting one of four foods that you’d like to try with the Baja Blast Hot Sauce.
