Taco Bell Test Market: Biscuit Tacos, Crispy Chicken Chickstar, Crispy Chicken GoStrips

GrubGrade reader Justin recently let us know about Pizza Hut’s Flavor Sticks and yesterday he came across some test items at Taco Bell. Some of these items have been testing in various markets in recent months.  The Biscuit Taco features Taco Bell’s new Crispy Chicken which is has a breading made with crushed tortilla chips and a jalapeno honey sauce.
