Taco Bell (Everywhere): Beefy Nacho Burrito
You all knew that sooner or later I'd return to the site of my first nacho blog post. Why did I do it? Wouldn't you if you loved nachos and heard that they'd invented a burrito with nachos inside it? That's right, nachos in a convenient, portable, edible package! Word.
So, what was it like to eat such a glorious creation? Well, let's not forget that this is Taco Bell. BUT, I do like a bit of plastic cheese every now and then, and the chips stayed surprisingly crunchy from beginning to end. Of course, that may be due to some crazy Clark-Griswold-inspired food additive but that's to be expected when you venture into the realm of fast food. And I must admit that I loved the idea of being able to eat nachos while I was driving home. Try that with a "normal" plate of nachos and it'll be the last nachos you ever eat!
Even though it's par for the course, I must point out the stark difference between the picture in the Ad and what this thing actually looks like when you unwrap it an take a bite:
Look how the chips, meat, "cheese" and sour cream playfully spring forth from the burrito in the ad, as if to say, "Hey! There's a party in here! Come on over!" Then look at the dark, cheesy pit of despair that is the reality of this fast food creation in real life. Would I eat one again?
Hell yes! Doesn't everyone love to huddle up in a dark cheesy pit of despair every now and then?
Rating: 3 out of 5
Rating Notes: It gained 1/2 a point for being portable, but lost 1/2 a point for not actually being a plate of nachos. Surprisingly good taste!
Map to Location: If you really need me to tell you where to find a Taco Bell then you're probably living somewhere that there aren't any...
