Review: Taco Bell - Classic Margarita Frutista Freeze

A better picture of the Taco Bell Classic Margarita Frutista Freeze
Don't get too excited, Taco Bell's new Margarita drinks don't have any alcohol in them. Though, if you have some tequila lying around, just pour some into a Margarita Frutista Freeze and you'll have yourself a bona-fide margarita. The Margarita Frutista Freeze is also available topped with real strawberries in syrup instead of a wedge of lime.

Interestingly, one of the ingredients in the Margarita Frutista Freeze is yucca mohave extract. Perhaps that's what gives the drink it's Margarita sans alcohol-like flavor.  Basically, it tastes like a margarita mix slushie, which is to say it's refreshing like a cool breeze as you lounge on the beach.  Sweet and tart and perfect for summer.

A 16-ounce cup will set you back $1.99, while a 20-ounce cup runs for $2.29.

You'll have to excuse the paper cup in the above picture, my local Taco Bell ran out of clear plastic Frutista Freeze cups and had to make do.  No worries!  I had another Classic Margarita Frutista Freeze along with my free Sparkling Limeade and took a better picture.  Dedication, right?!
