Trending News: Taco Bell Made A Burrito With Pop Rocks Because Nothing Is Sacred
Why Is This Important?
Taco Bell has done it again: They’ve introduced an insane new menu item that sounds both gross and amazing at the same time. At this point, we’re pretty sure they’re just f***ing with us.
Long Story Short
Stop scrolling through your #Swineapple-packed feed for just one second: Taco Bell’s Firecracker Burrito has arrived and between all the cheese, sauce and pop rocks, it has us seriously shook.
Remember when Taco Bell rolled out the Naked Chicken Chalupa? This is like that, but even crazier. The fast food chain’s latest viral menu addition is dubbed the Firecracker Burrito and it’s exactly what it sounds like: a burrito that sets off fireworks in your mouth. Literally.
Filled with rice, cheese, sour cream, beef and red tortilla strips, the Firecracker ($1.29) is wrapped in a (appropriately colored) red tortilla and comes in two versions — cheesy, which is packed with nacho cheese, and spicy, which features chipotle sauce — complete with quite the unexpected side order: a packet of spicy pop rocks. Said packet will set you back an extra $0.20 cents, but if you’re going for it, you better go for it, right?!
According to Foodbeast, the pop rocks “add a sweet-spicy flavor along with a fizzy texture to the burrito, but be warned: too many of these popping candies at once could make the burrito taste way too sweet, which, as I’ve learned the hard way, is not a pleasant feeling.” We gotta be honest, it didn’t exactly sound pleasant from the beginning.
If you really, really want to put yourself through the joy (pain?) that comes with this insane flavor combo, you’re going to have to hurry because the Firecracker is only being served until August 16 and is available at two Santa Ana, California locations, as well as one outpost in Anaheim and one in Tustin. Who’s ready for a quick road trip?
