On Sunday night, over 100 million people tuned in to watch Taco Bell announce their newest menu item: the Quesalupa!
Ok, maybe other people were watching for football. Or Bey and Bruno’s epic halftime show. Coldplay was there.
But I was most excited about the Quesalupa. I’m a big Taco Bell fan, and that melty cheese looked delicious. No new menu item had piqued my interest since Taco Bell Breakfast, which ended up being a big disappointment for me as a vegetarian. My go-to menu item is a Spicy Potato Soft Taco (lovingly nicknamed “The Potaco”), but I’m always interested in changing it up a little.
I ordered a Quesalupa with beans instead of meat with a hint of skepticism, not being the biggest fan of the way Taco Bell’s beans taste. It was a little more expensive than my usual Potaco, which raised my standards for its taste and quality. I pulled through the drive-through and into a parking spot, where fellow Her Campus writer and Taco Bell fan Zoe and I prepared to feast.
It was delightful. The ratios of the ingredients ensured that each bite included crispy lettuce, juicy tomatoes, and lots of warm cheesy goodness. The warm fried shell tied the whole creation together, and it was very filling. I’d give it an 8/10, the beans did not add anything to it. I encourage all Taco Bell lovers to go out and taste a Quesalupa, it is well worth the hype.
