Taco Bell Nacho Fries Review


Taco Bell Nacho Fries Review

Just hyped up beyond belief, you see Taco Bell is releasing nacho fries. Now, you might be thinking haven’t they already done that before? I think everyone kind of had that thought but I guess not I think this is a big first for them. I always thought that they had fries you know or maybe they tried them out or did a test run at some point or the other but apparently this is all new, at least what they’re doing here is all new. I was able to get my hands on one of the very first batches of them on their national release today they call these their nacho fries.

hello everyone this is running on empty food review well hello ladies and gentlemen and everyone watching this is running an empty food of you and I am your host the report of the week well I’m over here at Taco Bell this morning and well it might not be morning for you it is for me I got here at 9 a.m. and this is uh this is a major release this is a huge release everyone’s talking about it you could find that all the media is talking about it there’s the hype the hype is everyone’s hyping it up it’s going crazy here you could see the law and already wrapped around the building it’s going nuts I mean it was insane it was like I was going through hey you don’t even want to know but who was crazy all right Tenzin’s just hyped up beyond belief you see Taco Bell is releasing fries now you might be thinking haven’t they already done that before I think everyone kind of had that thought but I guess not I think this is a big first for them I always thought that they had fries you know or maybe they tried them out or did a test run at some point or the other but apparently this is all new at least what they’re doing here is all new and I was able to get my hands on one of the very first batches of them on their national release today they call these their nacho fries and you may ask well why why do they call them they’re not your eyes you know were they is it’s not really like potato is that encased nacho cheese to be very inventive I’m afraid not rather what this is to call them the nacho fries is the nacho cheese dipping sauce that it comes with which is right here see otherwise are your your your standard like medium cut french fries with a little bit of a taco seasoning which I don’t know maybe you’ll be able to taste it maybe not we’ll find out in a minute and then it comes with nacho cheese dipping sauce for you to dip it I guess it should you wish to do that and otherwise they’re gonna be marketing this is like a big side item you know big side item you can get your tacos and I can get it with a side of fries it’s pretty interesting how well it’ll be I don’t we’ll find out the one thing that I’ll be interested in seeing going forward is you know are they going to start releasing burgers now – who’s to say I’ll give him I’ll give him credit if they do that though I’ll tell you that if they go out of their way cuz they have the resources they have the the ground beef to do it del Taco already does it’d be really fascinating since they’re expanding into a more classical fast-food with these fries maybe they’ll try out some burgers who’s to say be crazy if they do and I’d be interested though anyway this is what it comes in a dollar just one buck for these you get a little standard I guess carton of them I like the packaging good aesthetic nice you know nice little black box it comes in and you can see the fries are pretty crispy here pretty crispy lightly very very lightly breaded lightly breaded but not too much they’re fresh oven fresh and yes at first I’m just gonna try the frying that I’ll try it with the with the nacho cheese so it’s Taco Bell’s new nacho fries going in these two are conjoined it’s a medical anomaly you know what I’m doing here you know gotta get these napkins there we go you know Taco Bell they know what they’re doing with these I mean maybe about a year ago two years ago I remember critiquing their items I remember saying you know it was just one miss after the other Taco Bell messed up again you know remember every time it was like it was it was flipping a coin it was a literal coin toss and you know 50-50 and it was a complete random sometimes it was really good sometimes it was outer garbage but wait we Taco Bell maybe they changed up the marketing team maybe they change I don’t know what they did but lately they’ve been they’ve been actually providing some pretty good stuff first of the stacker for just a bucket the good good on that that was really good and now on these fries too I haven’t even gotten to the air to the sauce yet but part of me thinks that one day these are even gonna be a mode of transportation no no I’m just I’m just forward thinking though and that I don’t know if that’s ever gonna happen but I’m just predicting that’s all these fries are pretty good though they have that crispy firmness that you’re looking for in a fry has the structural integrity see what I’m betting that could be like maybe a little bit of a combination of one of those little speeder bikes they sometimes ride around and Star Wars and like one of those things they did in Harry Potter with the Quidditch you never know I’m just I’m just saying it I’m just getting it out there and then when they do that you could say ever view Bryce oh no just saying maybe they will one think I don’t know but anyway these fries do have a nice crispy firmness to him which is good that’s what I look for in a fry you know you don’t like the soggy fries when they’re just gonna floppity the flopping around it’s no fun of course to eat and of course you could get fries that are too crispy and they’re just burnt and that’s no fun either it’s really you have to find that perfect middle ground where it has that firmness tooth but it’s not overdone and it’s not over burned and they did a good job with this maybe it’s because it’s just the first batch and they’re really paying attention to how they should be made I don’t know but they did a good job in that they got the texture right they got the the taste right in terms of you know the potato eNOS of it they did good on that I like the addition of the little taco seasoning too it’s a little salty wolf flavorful but that’s good too it’s not overwhelming it’s not overbearing there’s not so much of it that it gets all over your fingers and makes a mess of things everywhere there’s just the right amount to just flavor things up so it’s not just your boring fries but it has a little bit of its own flavor that makes it unique to Taco Bell which is important that’s what they want they don’t want it to be like a McDonald’s french fry 2.0 ripoff they want it to be Taco Bell’s own french fries I think and they were able to certainly accomplish that goal now what’s in a name of course the nacho cheese fries you know I haven’t been a fan of their nacho cheese and I like the fries right now as they are I don’t think they need the nacho cheese but then you can see a ceremonial dish full of nacho cheese and yeah we’ll dip it in we’ll see if it amplifies it you know maybe it will maybe it well I’m gonna be unbiased here yeah I would say the sauce isn’t mandatory now it comes with it anyway whether you like it or not it’s up to you whether you want to use it or not sauce isn’t mandatory but honestly I I think that for those of you who like cheese fries just like cheesy anything this is gonna be a good accompaniment you know the sauce is a little runny it’s really liquidy but to me I wasn’t very fazed by it you know it’s a nice accompaniment for those who like cheese but it’s not essential it’s like I’m saying like with some products where it’s absolutely terrible unless it has that sauce this isn’t one of those cases by any means they hold their own very strongly without any sauce but I think if you kind of like cheesiness in things this will this will be for you what takes it to that next level and for everyone else is just an optional sauce if you want to give it a shot go for it but by no means as I said is it mandatory that being said this cost me just a dollar so I mean it’s a really cheap side there I think it’s pretty cool that they’re trying out things with fries and again I hope one day I get to see some burgers from Taco Bell – along with those fries but all things considered it’s inventive they did a good job on it it tastes good and all in all I’m impressed by it so I’m really I’m gonna honestly have to give him a nine point five out of ten on this because I think I think they hit a home run with these fries I was coming in here expecting needs to be mediocre and maybe a little bit above a piece of garbage ripoff of McDonald’s but you know what I’m impressed by it and they did a good job and I think this is I think it’s a pretty inventive side of theirs too to go out and do and they did it well ladies and gentlemen also if you’re interested we
