Man, Taco Bell’s been making a LOT of new products lately. The Volcano Taco and Triple Steak Burrito are two example of fine, triple A food products that deserve permanent spots on the menu. The Bacon Cheddar Gordita Crunch has way too many syllables and is a lot less satisfying. While I order at least one Volcano Taco every time I go to TB and order the occasional Triple Steak Burrito, I don’t think I will ever order this again. It’s not bad, but it’s no where near as good as most other items on the menu.
The Bacon Cheddar Gordita Crunch consists of a soft, chewy shell coated in melted cheese and bacon bits and slapped onto a crunchy shell. Inside said inner hard shell is your standard beef, cheese and lettuce, but they also incorporate a greasy, fatty bacon flavored cheddar sauce. It’s pretty good and acts as a lubricant to allow the crispy, crunchy bacon to slide down your throat whether you chew it or not.
It tastes exactly how you’d think. A standard Cheesy Gordita Crunch with the addition of bacon bits and cheddar sauce. Unfortunately it’s just not very good. There’s nothing overly disgusting about this taco, it’s not even really that bad. It’s just not something I want to eat ever again. Not because I puked, but because it’s just lame and boring. Oh, and before I forget to mention this, why the hell would you put bacon on a taco?
The BCGC (because it’s too hard to continuously spell it out) is also way too expensive for how lame it is. It’s around $2.49 which is just way too much for such a pathetic excuse for a promotional product. You can pay money for this if you want, but I don’t suggest it. If you can get one for free, go for it, but don’t support such lame excuses for overpriced non-sense like this.
Pathetic, lame, boring and uninspired, the BCGC is an obvious waste of cash and stomache room. Try a Triple Steak Burrito instead, it’s oh so wonderful.
