    It’s nice to know that the people in corporate also smoke a lot of weed. What’s next, the burrito taco?

    It’s actually not nationwide just yet. Our local TBs here in my part of Ohio don’t have them yet but they told me they will be getting them next week sometime. Looking forward to it! There’s nothing really novel about them but they’re a solid value with the double beef as a regular taco supreme with extra beef and these toppings would run about $2.59 so $1.49 for these is a nice savings!

    Boring. Bring back the Naked Chicken Chalupa! I have a slight theory as to why it disappeared so fast. I suspect they were just too expensive to make. Taco Bell wasn’t making enough profit at the price they thought they could charge. And it probably wasn’t a smash hit or else it would still be around. Maybe.

    Love this burrito. It’s actually beefy, there’s no crappy refried beans or cheap rice in it, and it’s a nice size. Thanks to LTO pricing, its the same price as a plain taco, which is pretty ridiculous.

    Yep, I think the headline on this one is a zero score for originality, but a good score for value. It’s basically a really robust soft taco rolled into burrito shape.

    On the “seasoned rice” front, my local TB has had it for awhile now. It’s not quite what the old “Mexican rice” was from what I can tell, but it’s closer, and it’s better than the knock-off Chipotle rice they’ve had for several years now. You can actually order a Beefy Fritos Burrito and it starts to resemble the legendary “Beefy Crunch Burrito” that TB appears to never want to keep on the menu.
