FAST FOOD NEWS: Taco Bell Baja Blast Birthday Freeze and Sour Strawberry Skittles Freeze

News TB Baja Blast Birthday Freeze

Taco Bell is celebrating the 15th birthday of its exclusive Mountain Dew flavor with a festive twist on its Baja Blast Freeze.

The taco chain’s Baja Blast Birthday Freeze features candy confetti swimming in frozen Baja Blast-flavored slush. The concept is similar to Taco Bell’s Watermelon Freeze with candy seeds.

A 16-ounce serving has 200 calories, 0 grams of fat, 0 milligrams of cholesterol, 50 milligrams of sodium, 56 grams of carbohydrates, 0 grams of fiber, 56 grams of sugar, and 0 grams of protein.

Oh, but that’s not all. Taco Bell has rolled out another Freeze that’s also a slightly tweaked version of a previous Freeze flavor.

The Sour Strawberry Skittles Freeze is a sour take on the Strawberry Skittles Freeze introduced in 2018. A regular-sized serving has 190 calories, 0 grams of fat, 0 milligrams of cholesterol, 45 milligrams of sodium, 48 grams of carbohydrates, 0 grams of fiber, 43 grams of sugar, and 0 grams of protein.

If you’ve tried either one, let us know what you think of it in the comments.

REVIEW: Coca-Cola Apple (Japan)

Coca Cola Apple  Japan

While we’re able to rot our teeth here in the States with Coca-Cola Cinnamon, those in Japan have been able to rot their teeth with Coca-Cola Apple. The fruity-flavored cola follows Coca-Cola Peach, which came out in Japan earlier this year.

Oooh, what would a Coca-Cola Cinnamon and Coca-Cola Apple mix taste like?

My friend Melissa picked up this bottle for me during her trip to Japan because I begged her to. She also tried it once she got back to her hotel and iMessaged me that she couldn’t taste any apple.

When I finally got the bottle of Coca-Cola Apple (and a bag of roasted chicken Lay’s she bought for me during her 2018 trip to France), I was expecting my taste buds to experience what hers did.

When I twisted off the cap and took a whiff, I could easily detect apple under the cola aroma. Then I took a sip. To be honest, I didn’t get any apple flavor with that first one. So after taking a second sip, I let the carbonated beverage sit in my mouth and swished it around like it was Coca-Listerine.

I imagine those of you in the dental field are screaming “NO” at your screen. But it was worth it because now I could notice the fruit with every sip. (I don’t know why that worked.) It tastes like a combination of Coca-Cola with more than a splash of apple juice. It’s mild, and I didn’t get it at first, so I can understand how my dear wonderful, smart, and beautiful friend who bought me this bottle and is probably reading this review, wasn’t able to notice it.

Now, I don’t know if this contains apple juice because I can’t read the ingredients list, despite many years of C’s in Japanese language classes. But it sure tastes like it does, which makes this cola quite pleasing to me.

But if you want to obtain an apple-flavored Coca-Cola the expensive way ($12-$15), you can do so by picking it up via eBay or from an online Japanese snack seller, like NapaJapan or J-List. Or you can pick it up the super expensive way, by flying to Japan.

Coca-Cola Apple is definitely not worth getting via the super expensive route, but, because it tastes like it has apple juice, it might be possible to recreate it at home, if you can figure out the right Coke-to-juice ratio. I think it’s an experiment worth trying.
