    I tried one today. It’s no volcano taco, but it’s pretty good.

  2. Justin W says:

    Saw the commercial today on TBS and was like “WTF?” I am a big fan of pepperjack, though, so I may give it a try.

  3. Justin says:

    The tacos look better with the black shell!

  4. SkippyMom says:

    A black taco? Why? The point?

    I do like pepperjack tho’

  5. Spark says:

    That black shell looks awfully unappetizing. I’ll try it though, I do love Volcano tacos and this probably (hopefully) will be just as good!

  6. Justin says:

    What, cause it’s black?


  7. Adam Bomb says:

    I *almost* tried one of these today. I know it’s silly, but I think the black taco shell looks neat. They should do black and orange shells for Halloween, then red and green for Christmas. Taco Bell could be the festive fast food joint, lol.

  8. rob says:

    It will be popular among goth kids.

  9. Yum Yucky says:

    Well, uh. I do love my own black-ness, but I don’t desire a black taco. It doesn’t look appealing.

  10. Adam Bomb says:

    @Yum Yucky: You know, it would not surprise me AT ALL if there was one idiot marketing guy in a meeting that said something to the effect of, “…and hey, I’ll bet the black shell will be really popular among African Americans!” He’s the guy who doesn’t get invited to the bar after work.

  11. Yum Yucky says:

    @Adam Bomb: I think you’re right. And that guys is a loser.

  12. Pink Taco Eater says:

    Taco is taco, Black, Yellow, White, REd. It’s all Pink in the inside thats all that matters. One in the pink and two in the stink is all I care about not debating taco bell.

  13. Vladimir says:

    That marketing guy should have been more persuasive and got Taco Bell to call this the “Obama Taco” just to create some entertaining news for me to read for a few days.

  14. Mike says:

    lmao at Vladimir. Yeah now that would be somethin..i was expecting something more then just a taco with baja sauce..but ill try it anyway. Volcano Taco FTW!!!

  15. Cordell Lucas says:

    It’s not a Volacano taco, but it will pass… Taco Bell is GREAT!!!

  16. Douglas Brewer says:

    Had a Black Jack Taco Meal tasted really good. The forgot to put in my Twist so I get to go back tommorrow and get another and another twist.

  17. Skelly says:

    There actually is an upside to the Black Jack taco for anyone that does the whole low carb thing… they’re 5 less net carbs per taco making them 4 net carbs per taco… which is good for any low carb dieters opposed to the 9 that are in a reg crunchy taco. Just a weird fact… 🙂

  18. Adam Bomb says:

    @Skelly: Wait, so there’s an actual difference in the taco shell other than the coloring? Weird, I wonder how they dropped 5 carbs.

  19. Skelly says:

    @Adam Bomb: Yea I know it’s weird… the only thing I can think is maybe they use blue corn for the shell (it does kinda have that color) and somehow that’s lower in carbs than the yellow corn shells… *shrug* it’s odd!

  20. Chatster says:

    Just tried the new Black Jack taco last night…..Loved it! We are not avid Taco Bell visitors but we were too curious and glad we tried it. A much better combination than the ordinary taco. They will also come in quite handy for my brother-in-laws 50th bday party (an over the hill party). Sweet!

    I love the Black Jack Taco Meal. That is A LOT of food for $4.99. I will go back for another one.
