Conan Goes to the Taco Bell Test Kitchen, Unveils a New Menu Item

What happens when Conan O'Brien brings the Taco Bell-addicted head of his show's IT department to the chain's headquarters in Irvine, CA? The test kitchen (field trip, anyone?) staff gets a little more than they bargained for when Conan, uh, closely watches taste-testers eating unreleased foods, tries one of their newest menu items -- the cheese-stuffed "Quesalupa," which has yet to hit stores -- and invents a few experimental tacos of his own.

Is the world ready for a Guinness-doused "O'Taco?" You can watch his antics in the video above to find out what T-Bell's taste-testers thought.

There's no official release date for the Quesalupa quite yet, but if the IT dude's overjoyed reaction is any indication of its deliciousness, it shouldn't be long before we start seeing it on the menu.
