Taco Bell Tests French Fries in the US

Taco Bell is testing new seasoned French fries in at least one location in Irvine, CA.

French fries is something Taco Bell serves in several countries abroad but hasn't served nationally here at home.

The seasoning was described to me by one employee at the location as a "habanero" seasoning that wasn't all that spicy.

The new fries can be ordered alone or topped ("Loaded") like Taco Bell's Nacho Supreme, only without the beans.

The fries look to be selling at a price to encourage sampling: It's only 50 cents for just the fries (75 cents if you want a cup of nacho cheese to go with), $1 for the Supreme fries, and $2 for the Bell Grande fries (which like the corresponding nachos, is simply a larger-sized order). It's unlikely they'll be quite that cheap if they make it to the national stage.

If you happen to be in the Southern California area, you can find the fries at the Taco Bell restaurant at 4101 Campus Dr., Irvine, CA 92612 for however long the test runs.

Some of you might remember that I wrote about how fries wouldn't get served anytime soon here in the US back in August as they weren't being tested at the time. Well, it looks like they're testing them now.
