News: New at Taco Bell - Tortadas and Limeade Sparklers

Taco Bell Bacon Ranch Tortada
Taco Bell introduced two items today: Tortadas and Limeade Sparklers.

The name "Tortada" appears to be a combination of "torta" and "tostada." Tortadas are available in two varieties: Bacon Ranch and Salsa Roja.  They are priced at $3.29 at my local Taco Bell (price may vary with location).

The Bacon Ranch Tortada features avocado ranch dressing, shredded lettuce, diced tomatoes, bits of bacon, southwest-marinated chicken breast (seasoned with garlic powder, "spices," chili pepper, and paprika among other things), wrapped in a flour tortilla and grilled crispy.

Taco Bell Salsa Roja Tortada
The Salsa Roja Tortada features the same chicken and lettuce but differs in having a blend of three cheeses (mozzarella, pepper jack, and Cheddar), Fiesta Salsa (tomatoes, onions, and cilantro), and salsa rojas (red sauce).
The Limeade Sparklers come in two flavors: classic (i.e. regular limeade) and cherry.  Both features a blend of Sierra Mist and cherry limeade or limeade poured over ice and garnished with a "REAL lime wedge" (because there are fake lime wedges out there?).  Limeade Sparklers come in 16- and 20-ounce cup sizes and are priced at $1.69 and $1.99 respectively.
