Just as I was getting used to the breakfast burrito as “traditional” breakfast fare, Taco Bell has decided to introduce a new drink concoction that mixes Mountain Dew and Tropicana orange juice to the menu. Called Mtn Dew A.M. is part of what Taco Bell calls “FirstMeal,” (rather than “breakfast”). Imagine an impossibly sweet non-alcoholic mimosa priced under $2—I’m drifting into a diabetic coma just thinking about it.
While sugary drinks are being removed from schools, and through bans like New York City’s attack on big-ounce sodas, Taco Bell appears to be zigging while others zag.
