Review: Taco Bell Beefy Crunch BurritoAuthor: indianapoliseater | Filed under: Food Reviews
Taco Bell has yet again trotted out a new menu item and while I was watching football this past weekend, I saw about a billion commercials for this one and since I am a slave to television marketing (LOL), I figured I’d try it out.
What I Got: Beefy Crunch Burrito; 99 cents.
As with all Taco Bell reviews, let’s go over what’s in the burrito according to the Taco Bell website:
“Layers of seasoned ground beef, rice, warm nacho cheese sauce, reduced fat sour cream and Flamin’ Hot (R) Fritos(R) wrapped in a warm, flour tortilla.”
I can confirm that all those ingredients were in there, although since I am not a fan of sour cream, I had them remove it from my burrito.
In terms of taste, this was the basic Taco Bell tastes that you’ve come to expect with the added texture of crunchy Fritos worked in. The ground beef, rice and nacho cheese sauce were all as you’d expect them. But, when mixed with the Fritos, there was a nice additional crunch added to the burrito and I liked that. The Fritos weren’t “Flamin’ Hot” in my mind and didn’t add any additional heat to the burrito, but I didn’t mind that because as I said, I liked the crunch added to what is usual just a mushy menu item.
Would I Buy It Again? For 99 cents, I would definitely buy it again. If they raised it much above $1.29 or something like that, I would never order it. Although, you have to take that with a grain of salt since I am an unabashed fan of the Why Pay More? value menu at Taco Bell. Regardless, give this burrito a shot if you are either A) a slave to television marketing or B) willing to try something different. You won’t be blown away by the taste, but I also don’t think you’ll be disappointed.
