Taco Bell has launched the Mountain Dew AM, as well as a new breakfast sandwich, in 10 states
For your breakfast tomorrow morning, how does 17 teaspoons of sugar sound? That's what you'll get, according to the Dallas Observer, if you pick up Taco Bell's new morning drink: Mountain Dew mixed with orange juice. Taco Bell hasn't revealed the ratio of Dew to juice in the drink, but the Observer figures on 12 ounces of soda and 8 ounces of OJ, resulting in the 17-teaspoon figure. (Blogger Lauren Drewes Daniels writes that it tastes "like a bet someone lost.")
Taco Bell is trying to reinvent breakfast, an exec explains to ABC News. To that end, it has launched the Mountain Dew AM, as well as a new breakfast sandwich, in 10 states. The sandwich, called the AM Crunchwrap, contains eggs, cheese, meat, and a hashbrown. Taco Bell calls it "a complete breakfast solution." It goes for $2.49, while a regular size Mountain Dew AM is $1.69.
