Upon ‘Successful’ Run in Ohio, Taco Bell’s Quesalupa Goes National

What the hell is this?
Thanks a lot, Toledo!

As part of its ongoing effort to desecrate Mexican food, Taco Bell says it will roll out systemwide its ridiculously named Quesalupa — melted pepper Jack cheese stuffed into a flaky, crisp shell “that serves as a vehicle for seasoned beef, lettuce, cheddar, reduced-fat sour cream and tomatoes.”

Until recently, “the thing” was limited to Toledo, Ohio, which was totally OK with me, since I don’t have any immediate plans, nor reasons or desire to ever go to Toledo, Ohio.

However, and according to press reports, after a test in 36 Toledo restaurants, the Quesalupa was pronounced “one of the most successful tests in Taco Bell history,” so its going national.

So, thanks a lot, Toledo! You have just ruined my Taco Tuesday.

Taco Bell is Testing a Hybrid Between a Quesadilla and a Burrito

Seriously, people, this blog cannot get enough “Mexican food” nonsense.

Just when I thought the height of ridiculousness had been reached with the Frito-stuffed Chicken Enchilada Melt and/or the Dori Taco, comes the Quesarito, a Quesadilla/Burrito hybrid.

According to Los Angeles Times –and for reasons I yet have to comprehend– the Quesarito is being tested only in Oklahoma City, presumably because Oklahomans were all cool about it and couldn’t tell the difference between one bad wrap and the other.

Also according to the L.A. Times, the Quesarito might not see the light of day outside Oklahoma. Thank God.
