Steve's Food News: Gingerbread-Flavored Mountain Dew Is Coming

Gingerbread-Flavored Mountain Dew Is Coming for the Holidays

We heard rumors about this last year, but now it's official. Mountain Dew is releasing a GINGERBREAD soda for the holidays. It's called Mountain Dew Gingerbread Snap'd.

On the bottle, it's described as Mountain Dew with a, quote, "blast of artificial gingerbread flavor." (So . . . yum?) They haven't revealed a release date yet. All we know is it'll hit shelves before the end of the year. 

This isn't the first-holiday flavor they've come up with. It's replacing a cranberry-pomegranate flavor called Merry Mash-Up that they've been selling since 2018. That one's discontinued now.

Taco Bell Welcomes Back The Doritos Cheesy Gordita Crunch

Taco Bell has just announced the return of their Doritos Cheesy Gordita Crunch to the menu for a limited time nationwide. Not familiar? It’s:

  • Nacho Cheese Doritos Taco Shell
  • …stuffed with seasoned beef, lettuce, cheddar cheese, and spicy ranch sauce
  • Taco Bell’s signature three cheese blend on top
  • All wrapped in a soft piece of flatbread (with cheese sauce in between)

Prices may vary by location, but the “regular” price is usually $4.19. And if the item disappears from the Taco Bell menu again in the future you can make a DIY from the “secret menu” if you order a Cheesy Gordita Crunch and get the restaurant to use a Nacho Cheese Doritos taco shell in place of the regular taco shell. You’re welcome.

Is Coffee Becoming Less Popular? 63% of Gen Z Adults Never Drink It

Is coffee becoming less and less popular? Or is it just something you don't lean on until you're older and more exhausted? A new survey found young adults are drinking WAY less coffee than the rest of us.

63% of Gen Z adults say they never drink it. That's compared to 33% of Millennials . . . 34% of Gen Xers . . . and 29% of Baby Boomers who never drink coffee.

Gen Zers who do drink coffee are also less likely to drink a lot of it. Only 6% said they have more than one or two cups a day. For all other age groups, around 20% drink multiple cups a day. And 2% of older adults said they drink at least SEVEN cups a day.

There's a restaurant in Fort Worth, Texas called Taste Community that's donation-based. You pay whatever you can afford, so people who are struggling can always get a free meal. But other people pay extra because they want to support the place. It opened in 2017, but it's in the news now because they just served their 100,000th meal.
