New Cheesy Core Burritos from Taco Bell
Taco Bell’s new Cheesy Core Burritos have/had been available in some California locations since back in December. GrubGrade readers Josh and Andre sent me some info and pictures from a Taco Bell in Toledo, Ohio that is now testing the Cheesy Core Burritos as well.If you’ve been following the Taco Bell test market trend, you’ll know Toledo, Ohio is an important market that helps dictate a potential national release. There are two versions of Cheesy Core Burritos, the Spicy Cheesy Core Burrito and the Crunchy Cheesy Core Burrito. The burritos look sort of like a reversed version of the Quesarito to me. Construction-wise it looks to be a flour tortilla, seasoned beef outer layer, then premium latin rice, and a Cheesy Roll-Up-style center. The Spicy Cheesy Core Burrito has jalapeño peppers in its cheesy core which looks to be made up of nacho cheese sauce (possibly includes a three-cheese blend/creamy jalapeño sauce).The Crunchy Cheesy Core Burrito would be the same outer layers as mentioned above, but with its Cheesy Core consisting of nacho cheese sauce and crunchy red tortilla strips (possibly three-cheese blend too). The seasoned beef version is priced at $1.99, chicken for $2.79, and steak for $2.99. We’ll keep you posted on any word on a national release.
