After weeks of mystery-fueled hype (minus those leaks on Reddit) and, finally, a grand reveal in a Super Bowl commercial last night, Taco Bell's big new product, the Quesalupa, landed in T-Bell restaurants nationwide on Monday. Naturally, we went out and grabbed a few of the quesadilla-Chalupa hybrids to see if they live up to all the talk.
First of all, the Quesalupa is likely Taco Bell's biggest new menu item in years, considering the expensive and lengthy marketing campaign the company unleashed in hopes of persuading you to eat them. In fact, the Super Bowl spot promises they're "bigger than everything," even bigger than items from the cultural zeitgeist like man buns, drones, and those ridiculous "hoverboard" deathtraps. Obviously, that's a pretty damn big claim for a fast food taco creation, but then again, people love Taco Bell's fast food taco creations.
