Taco Bell Has New Rolled Up Tacos That Are Somehow Not Taquitos

In what smacks of trying to disguise a taquito as something other than what it is, which is a taquito, Taco Bell has unveiled its newest bid for your gustatory attention: Rolled tacos, with dipping sauces. You know, like taquitos.

It’s a new taco platform, explains USA Today, which consists of two new flavor offerings. The Rolled Chicken Taco, and a rolled up Crunchy Taco, or so it has been reported. Both will start appearing on menus nationwide on Nov. 20.

The Rolled Chicken taco features shredded chicken and will sell for $1.99 per 2-pack, or $3.99 for a 4-pack. There’s also the option of including them in the new Taco duo 12 Pack, which is a limited time offering. It comes with 6 Crunchy Tacos and 6 Rolled Chicken Tacos with 3 dips for $10.99.

Here’s the chicken taco that is not a taquito, somehow:


But what does the new crunchy taco look like?!? We might never know, until Nov. 20 or if the Internet proves useful.

And lest you think you can get away with a dry taquito, sorry, a dry “rolled” taco, there are five dipping sauces available with it: new Spicy Ranch, Salsa, Guacamole, Nacho Cheese and reduced-fat Sour Cream.
