History

Following the success of Baja Blast, Sangrita Blast was made available in Taco Bell beginning in December 2013, alongside 5 other drinks, one of which was Diet Baja Blast (now being called Baja Blast Zero Sugar).

Several years later, Sangrita Blast was unfortunately replaced by Spiked (Lemonade) in 2017.

After the discontinuation of Spiked (Lemonade) alongside Spiked (Raspberry Lemonade) in 16 oz. cans, Spiked (Lemonade) was still available in the Taco Bell restaurant soda fountains in the United States, but it was currently in the process of being phased out, starting December 2018, to make room for the return of Diet Baja Blast (now being called Baja Blast Zero Sugar), it was completely removed from all Taco Bell restaurants by around March 2019.

2015 Limited-Time Store Release

In January 2015, information began leaking through the internet about a second store release of Baja Blast, accompanied by the debut store release of Sangrita Blast. On April 5th, 2015, the Baja Blast page of the official Mountain Dew website was launched with a countdown clock, and a message that read:

"The countdown is on: one of our most requested flavors is making its triumphant return to shelves. Starting April 20th, score MTN DEW® BAJA BLAST™—plus MTN DEW® SANGRITA BLAST™—in bottles and cans, but only for a limited time."

Sangrita Blast Freeze

Beginning in May 2015, participating Taco Bell locations began offering Mountain Dew Sangrita Blast Freeze, an icy variant of Sangrita Blast, replacing the preexisting Snapple Lemonade Freeze. It was discontinued at the beginning of September 2015 and was replaced by the Starburst Cherry Freeze.
