Taco Bell Unveils 3rd Dairy-Based Beverage with Checkoff Support

Taco Bell is continuing its run of dairy-based beverages thanks to dairy checkoff support. Dairy Management Incorporated Monday announced the chain released the Island Berry Freeze that uses a shelf-stable creamer created by dairy checkoff scientists. It is Taco Bell’s third beverage launch featuring the dairy creamer, beginning with the Pineapple Whip Freeze in May of 2020 and the Mountain Dew Baja Blast Colada Freeze last May. Another popular Taco Bell item, the Grilled Cheese Burrito, is back on the menu. The burrito launched in the summer of 2020 and re-entered Taco Bell’s menu last fall with a double steak option. Taco Bell’s Heather Mottershaw says, “We’re grateful to have checkoff scientists working side-by-side with our team to continue pushing the envelope with items featuring dairy.” DMI’s Emily Bourdet adds, “our on-site scientists at Taco Bell have changed the game for how to incorporate dairy and creating excitement for Taco Bell fans.”
