..which is someone in a commercial referencing something fairly mundane like a new sandwich or lunch deal exclaims to someone else "MIND....BLOWN!"

No one in real life conversation talks like that, at least in a non-sarcastic way. I'm guessing some ad executives think it's what "all the kids" are saying nowadays so we need to further make it a "thing"

That's a variation on an old one.  The idea of one's mind being blown goes back to when I was a kid.  It was kind of a hip, kinda druggy expression at the time.  "That blew my mind", "Mind-blowing", "That blew me away", etc.
 
It even predates this song:

F'shizzle, few slang words have stood the test of time as well as "cool".  It may not even be considered slang anymore.

It's really kind of insensitive, what with all this microcephaly going around.

As long as nobody says "tubular". That was the least groovy slang ever.

I think the ad that inspired me to post this was for Applebee's. They have some sort of new buritto inside a taco menu item and the girl eating it with her friends is way too excited about it.

This one?

Yeah, I can think of way more mind-blowing things than a hamburger in a tortilla, like...

A hamburger in a bagel!

Thanks LOL

I was going to use the classic Scanners gif, but then I figured that might not be safe for all viewers.

"Cool" was cool when I was a teenager, and it's still hot! Wink The other one I remember from my younger days was "sharp", but that hasn't held up as well.

Thomas Jefferson used "cool" to describe level headedness and calmness.

I think that makes "cool" "founding slang".

70's??  I still use it.  LOL
 
I've noticed since I've gotten older that I no longer notice what's gone out of style and when.  Then again, even when I was young, I didn't adopt every trend.
 
Some young guy at work always asks if I can give him a "boge" (pronounced boag).  It means cigarette.  He doesn't get that someone my age doesn't go for all that lingo or jive sort of talk.  I say "Oh, you mean a cigarette?".  And yeah, I always give him one.  Despite being a bit of a wigger, he's a nice-enough guy.

Don't forget Awsome Sauce. One that I hate hearing anywhere is the retarded sounding Booya! And don't even enetertain the idea of saying Rad! In the Nora Roberts series (book) featuring futuristic 2060 cop Eve Dallas, her BFF says "Mag" which just sounds so corn pone.

Rad died out in the 80's/ very early 90s.
