When it comes to restaurants partnering up with other companies to create unique fast food menu items, Taco Bell is standing on top of “Don’t fuck with us mountian” holding a flag that says “Kneel and kiss the fuckin’ dirt bro”
The Doritos Locos Tacos are quite possibly the biggest hit in fast food history. 100 million sold in about 10 weeks.
With stats like that it’s no wonder The Bell would expand on this…but who saw the drink selection upgrade coming?
“We asked ourselves: Why can’t we make our beverages as crave-able as our food?” says Chris Brandt, chief marketing officer. “That’s been our mission for the past 18 months.”
TB plans to add Mountain Dew Sangrita, Sobe Yumberry Pomegranate, Manzanita Sol, Brisk Mango and Half&half iced teas, and diet Baja Blast to the drink selections.
If those flavors don’t scream “dump alcohol in me” I don’t know what does. Mountain Dew is huge. Kids love it. Adults love it. Three Olives loved it so much they thought they should create an English Vodka that tastes just like it.
I stopped in my local Tbell to see if the flavors were available, they were not, so 6 orders of fiesta potatoes it was.
I’d love to hear from anyone whose tried any of these new flavors and I will update as soon as I get my grubby Canadian paws on them.
