    I’m on it!

    By chance, did you guys get a review in the first time around?

    • Ryan says:

      Nope…I don’t think we have any type of chalupa reviewed. I’ve had the Bacon Club Chalupa before though…I think it’s pretty good.

    I thought it was only a Bacon Club Gordita the first time around, but I may be mistaken.

    I prefer Chalupas over Gorditas, so this one looks intriguing to me.

  3. Katie Ann says:

    I love the nacho cheese chicken Chalupa, this may be a suitable alternative. Looks pretty tasty.

    I just got a little bit fatter.

    I live vicariously through your blog [all the things I can’t eat but want to] but can someone please explain the difference between a Gordita and a Chalupa [and isn’t Chalupa really a Taco Bell creation – does that word even exist outside of Gordita land? Really?]

    Their picture cracks me up – it looks like the whole thing is constructed out of perfectly sculpted clay – especially the cheese – this takes product presentation WAY over the edge. :D

    • Heather says:

      A Gordita is more like a Pita bread which is baked, so it is soft. The Chalupa is a deep fried wheat flat bread which makes it slightly crunchy. I prefer the Chalupa (of course, it isn’t as healthy as the Gordita). :)

    • Jessica J says:

      The gordita has a soft, unfried shell. The chalupa is a crispy fried shell. They may even be the same shell, just fried with the chalupa. God, I can’t believe I know that. I’m sad. I should live vicariously through this blog, but instead I eat it in real life.

  6. Jessica J says:

    The picture does look really overly fake, more so than other times. Their food stylist is out of control!
    I think bacon on tacos, chalupas, or anything like that is just wrong.

  7. Rachel says:

    For years my standard order at Taco Bell has been a Meximelt with beans instead of meat and a chicken baja Chalupa.

    The chicken baja Chalupa tastes so perfect to me, I just can’t see it needing bacon. Plus I think the bacon adds about 100 calories. Just not worth the extra treadmill time to me.

    best news EVER! going for lunch!

    Don’t they do this every summer?? I seem to remember eating these on the beach two years ago, and on road trip on the way to buying a car in another state last year (although i’m thinking that was some sort of hard shell wrapped in soft shell w/ cheese between and bacon). Anyway I think I’ll be steering clear this year after recently experiencing the 36 hour aftermath of eating 5 volcano tacos. Its so tempting because its right next to my grocery store!
