Apparently there are no rules anymore, because Mountain Dew has turned your favorite soda flavor into *checks notes* a hot sauce. In the lead-up to National Hot Sauce Day on Jan. 22, the soda company is firing things up with an exclusive hot sauce flavor inspired by a cult favorite drink. Here’s how to get Mountain Dew Baja Blast Hot Sauce, which dropped on Jan. 19 with a limited supply of 750 bottles. Since you won’t see it in stores, you’ll want to grab your luckiest charm when you enter the Mountain Dew Baja Blast Hot Sauce sweepstakes.

OK, I dropped a lot of details there, so let’s break it down: Baja Blast is no longer only a drink; you can’t buy this hybrid soda-hot sauce in stores; and you’ll have to enter a sweepstakes to figure out what the sauce actually tastes like. Surprisingly, this isn’t the first time Mountain Dew has entered the hot sauce chat. In October 2020, the company launched a hot habanero hot sauce with NBA player Joel Embiid. What is new with the company’s latest hot sauce drop is the addition of the soda flavor.

If you’re familiar with the Baja Blast drink, you’re probably expecting the hot sauce version to be packed with “tropical lime flavor,” as Mountain Dew describes the sip. Not only will it likely be a zesty drizzle, but it brings the heat with habanero peppers, green chiles, and jalapeno peppers, in partnership with Houston-based hot sauce shop iBurn.

The limited-edition bottle is branded with a colorful Baja Blast-esque green label and cool graphics like a parachuting chili and a volcano erupting with what looks like Baja Blast. It’s truly a collector’s bottle. As of Jan. 19, the sweepstakes is the only way to get a bottle. Mountain Dew, if you’re reading this, I’m sure Baja Blast stans will agree when I say I’m hoping to see this hot sauce on shelves, too.
