Taco Bell Testing New Double Stacked Tacos

Now testing at Toledo, Ohio area Taco Bell locations are new Double Stacked Tacos.  Thanks to GrubGrade readers Josh and Andre for the heads-up on these.  I’m still waiting for more details, but they look to be a crunchy taco shell inside of a soft taco tortilla and separated by cheese and possibly sauce.  Each Double Stacked Taco appears to be topped with seasoned ground beef, lettuce, shredded cheese and a sauce.
Double Stacked Tacos Taco BellThere are three to choose from: Cool Habanero, Nacho Crunch, and Spicy Sweet.  Priced at $1 each.  We’ll keep you posted with more details and on a future national release.Double Stacked Tacos Taco Bell

    Has Taco Bell run out of ideas? There’s all kinds of great stuff out on the West Coast at taquerias, in Mexico, but all they do is put tacos inside of tacos and call it brilliant.

      Like what? They already stole the quesalupa from Freebirds, I guess they could steal the Quesonacholupa too…

      Only other thing I can think of is nacho fries?

    • AlexG says:

      It’s Chipotle and it’s direct competitors that borrowed heavily from taquerias in the West Coast (especially the Mission Burrito from San Francisco) and from the great food in Mexico.

      Meanwhile, who knows where Taco Bell gets its crazy ideas. I believe they stopped looking at Mexico for their food inspiration a long time ago… haha

      You can’t run a fast food franchise, with their economies of scale and standardization, like some local taqueria. Explanation too complicated for this food blog. Just trust, errmmm, smart people that turn taquerias into thriving franchise and job opportunities.

    is this the same as the double decker?

  3. Kevin says:

    double decker tacos anyone?

  4. Ann S says:

    So, they’re essentially re-branding the Double Decker Taco and adding sauce? Because that’s really the only difference from the existing product when you think about it.

    • Ryan says:

      From what I can tell, yeah, they’re close… although I think the Double Decker uses refried beans in between.

  5. Ric Ballard says:

    The Double Decker does use beans. These also look like they’d use the Doritos Locos Tacos, considering the names Cool Haberno (Cool Ranch), Nacho Crunch (Nacho Cheese) and Spicy Sweet (Spicy)

  6. tonybaloney says:

    Why did you not approve my comment?!

  7. Starkzilla says:

    Echoing everyone, looks like a double decker but maybe the cool/nacho/spicy stuff comes from them using the Doritos Locos shells instead of plain ones?

  8. Candice says:

    You’re thinking the gordita crunch.

  9. DanaB says:

    So basically Cheesy Gordita Crunch with different sauces. I remember ordering a CGC at a Taco Bell in a mall and it was served with cheese sauce instead of the pepper jack, so I guess I had the Nacho Cheese version already!

  10. BigBelly says:

    Good price, the cool habanero looks like it could pass for a 2.49 supreme version.
    I’ll wait for the review of the spicy/sweet one, glad it doesn’t involve one of those waffle shells though.

  11. Maran says:

    No one else is commenting on the price? In my area a taco is more than a dollar. I’d but this just for that reason alone. Why only Toledo? What gives taco bell?

    • Jessica O. says:

      Taco Bell uses Ohio as one of their primary test markets, and they price their test items unusually low to encourage people to try it. It’ll most likely be more expensive if/when it gets rolled out to the rest of the US.

  12. Nicky says:

    I wish they would try again at cantina tacos. Their’s were pretty bad last timetime, but Del Taco does them okay so it’s definitely possible. Ni

  13. Brian says:

    I would try these, especially for the $1 price since regular tacos are more than that at my local TB locations. These all sound pretty good too. I was never a fan of the Double Decker tacos because of the beans. These look really good though. Maybe a trip to Toledo is in order.

    • Ryan says:

      Yeah it’s definitely not a tough sell at just a dollar each. I always appreciate when Taco Bell gets back to inexpensive fast food creations… leave the fast casual fare to the fast casual restaurants, there’s plenty of them.

  14. Jay Melo says:

    What makes the sweet part of Spicy Sweet? Sweet tacos sounds pretty revolting.

  15. T says:

    $1 sounds more reasonable. I can’t believe they increased the price of the regular tacos from 0.79 to 1.19. That’s a 50% price increase.

  16. GMoney says:

    Spicy Sweet Chili Doritos shells?

  17. Brian says:

    I had the Nacho Crunch one yesterday in Findlay, Ohio. It was very similar to a double decker taco. Instead of beans in between, it was nacho cheese. The hard taco shell was a normal shell, not a doritos shell. It had beef, lettuce, cheese, and the red strips. For $1 it was very filling, and I would definitely get again.
