Mountain Dew's April Fools' Gag Was Really Just a Tease for the Return of Baja Blast

Beverage will be back on shelves April 23

On April Fools’ Day, inspired by its Baja Blast flavor, Mountain Dew offered up a vacation stay at a Baja Bungalow with, among other oddities, a “187,000,000,000,000,000,000-gallon saltwater tank [with] sharks, maybe crabs and weird things that touch your foot and freak you out.” If you read the press release the prank was obvious but it was notable that Mountain Dew used a flavor that hadn’t been on shelves for two years as inspiration.
