News: Taco Bell - The Beefy Crunch Burrito Returns

The Beefy Crunch Burrito returns to Taco Bell for a limited time starting this Thursday, December 22, 2011. Last seen earlier this year in May, the Beefy Crunch Burrito features the spicy crunch of Flamin' Hot Fritos encapsulated in a warm flour tortilla along with seasoned ground beef, warm nacho cheese sauce, seasoned rice, and reduced fat sour cream.

It was 99 cents then and will also be 99 cents in its return. The Beefy Crunch Burrito is also available in a combo with two Crunchy Tacos and a large drink for $3.99 and a $5 Buck Box with a Crunchy Taco, Crunchwrap Supreme, and medium drink.

Interestingly, the return of the Beefy Crunch is partially due to fan demand. Since the limited time item stopped its run back in May, fans banded together to form 3 Million Fans for the Beefy Crunch Burrito (3MF) to show support for returning the burrito. They have a website and a Facebook page (with 9,910 "likes" at the time of this writing) and their efforts continue to convey their wish that the Beefy Crunch Burrito becomes a permanent menu item.

As an aside, I still think it should be called the Spicy Fritos Burrito or something to better describe what you're getting but I guess that's what pictures are for.
