Props to the classic Arrow Pointing Down podcast (from 03/04/08), which Jeff and Alex mention they aren't fans of Baja Blast (that is exclusive to Taco Bell), but Alex enjoys Code Red, while Jeff doesn't.  I hate Code Red, but I love Baja Blast. What about you, Giant Bomb? 
 
To me though, Code Red is a little too syrup-y. Baja Blast just tastes a lot smoother and more enjoyable. Plus, I get Baja Blast every time I go to Taco Bell, (which isn't that much these days, actually).

I prefer Baja Blast, I was kind of fond of Livewire when it had its limited run as well.

Now I just drink Pepsi Max.

I prefer Code Red. It's the best of the Mountain Dew line in my opinion.

I think of which I would be able to drink on a more regular basis. I went with Baja Blast because it's just less cloying than Code Red.

Just for the record though, I totally love Pitch Black whenever they release that.

Back in the day, we used to disqualify all but the Original from chugging contests. But I would always alternate between that and Code Red. I never got into the other flavors, despite how flat Code Red is. My girlfriend likes Baja Blast, which is why I kick her out of the car whenever she tries to order it at Taco Bell (which, if we went there more than once a month, I think we would have broken up by now).

@Napalm: She's an awful girlfriend for drinking that piss drink!

Nah, I wouldn't actually kick her out of the car. I would probably tuck-and-roll out, though :)

I love both, but Code Red is about as good at quenching thirst as beer, so Baja gets my vote.

I miss Pitch Black (and PB2)...

The only Mountain Dew variant I've ever actually liked is Code Red. That said, I don't drink soda anymore.

Haven't been to Taco Bell since that Salmonella thing..not because of that, not sure why I haven't been to be honest. I guess because i have been eating healthier. I have been craving it though..

Never had Baja Blast because I don't go to Taco Bell. I don't want to encourage them to keep doing what they're doing.

Dislike Baja, will drink it but I don't do fast food anymore so I never have the opportunity to give it another chance.

Code Red is just delicious.

No an awful boyfriend would tie her to the seat and then jump out of the car as it careens into the lake and then screams ENJOY YOUR BAJA BLAST IN HELL BITCH!

Code Red is just OK, while Baja Blast is fucking delicious. If I'm gonna ruin my teeth with sugary drinks it's going to have to be with something worthwhile. I'd rather drink juice or something over Code Red.

A worse one would, before all that, light the car on fire starting with the dashboard of the passenger side.

Pitch black was awful. Can't you just make it yourself by pouring grape Kool-Aid into regular Dew?

Code Red is the all-time champion.

I never had Baja Blast because I've never eaten at Taco Bell (and I staunchly believe that I am a better person for it), but when I used to drink Mountain Dew, Code Red was an incredible drink to have with lunch. So, Code Red.

I've never actually been to Taco Bell. Like, ever. Whenever I craved Tacos I'd just go and get a kit from the grocery store.

Is Taco Bell good?

Baja Blast is superior. I had a good couple years to get acquainted with Code Red (I worked at Hollywood Video at the time, and they had that shit multiple fold), and during that time I grew to hate it. It tastes like cinnamon ass. If you like it, more power to you. But I'm here to tell you, it ain't good.
