Taco Bell Set to Test Three New Items Including Doritos Quesalupa Crunch

Taco Bell today revealed that they will start testing three new items in three different markets beginning March 2, 2017, including a mash up of two popular items: the Doritos Locos Taco and the Quesalupa.

Here's what's in the works:

The Doritos Quesalupa Crunch test will go live in Cincinnati, OH on March 2, 2017. Similar to the Gordita Crunch, it features a shell inside of a shell; in this case, a Nacho Cheese Doritos Locos Taco shell inside of a Quesalupa shell with a layer of nacho cheese between them. Inside the Doritos Locos Taco is the standard combination of seasoned beef, lettuce, and cheddar cheese.

The Doritos Quesalupa Crunch will cost $3.49 ($3.99 for the Supreme version) each or $5.49 in a combo. It'll be available in Cincinnati through April 8, 2017.

There's also the Chicken Enchilada Burrito, which will be testing in Flint, Michigan. It's meant to offer the taste of an enchilada with the portability of a burrito. You can expect two Rolled Chicken Tacos (AKA taquitos) along with seasoned rice, either red sauce or nacho cheese (the "Cheesy Loaded" version), sour cream, and 3-cheese blend wrapped up in a flour tortilla.

These are $2.99 each or $5 as part of a $5 Box along with a Doritos Locos Taco, Crunchy Taco, and medium drink.

Finally, the Caesar Crunchwrap (which was spotted in test last year) will undergo another test run in Nashville, TN. It's basically a Caesar salad with the convenience of a Crunchwrap. Inside the hexagonally-folded and pressed flour tortilla, you'll find: chicken or steak, parmesan and corn crisps, Romaine lettuce, Caesar dressing (with a bit of green chile to it for a Taco Bell twist), 3-cheese blend and tomatoes.

The price on the Caesar Crunchwrap during testing is $2.99 a la carte (for either chicken or steak versions) and $5 as part of a $5 Box that also includes a Doritos Locos Taco, Crunchy Taco, and medium drink.

I was also able to try all the new items and should have something written up soon...
