In recent years Taco Bell has become notorious for coming out with "new" menu items every couple of months and placing them at the below 1 dollar price point. I admit some of these items are tasty. All of these items are darn cheap as well. However, the reason for both of these things is that there is nothing new about any of them. If you like Taco Bell you're going to like these "new" menu items because they consist of the same basic 4 or 5 ingredients just repackaged in different combinations under different names. When it comes to the Beefy Melt burrito T-Bell has really outdone themselves on this front.
here. What happened to the old days when new menu items would include things with at least some new elements like the Chicken Quesadilla or the short lived Bacon Cheesy Potato Burrito? I guess it just comes down to the business wanting cheap products that can create "buzz" and be a big seller. I fell for it, and I'll fall for it again. I love Taco Bell, but I won't be getting the Beefy Melt Burrito again.
Taste 3/10 Not inedible, but certainly bland and not good.
Value 4/10 Hard to bang on the value of something that only costs 99 cents, but at a place like Taco Bell with a lot of inexpensive items your 99 cents would be better spent on something else.
The idea for this blog is to blog about everything I think about food and food culture. I'll tell you what I like to eat, where I like to eat it and if I thought it was good or if I thought it was crap. My thoughts about food could go anywhere.
