I Tried Taco Bell's Terrifying Taco Shell Made Of Chicken

Posted on

Even though I love Taco Bell, I don't usually go for their newer, gimmicky items.

I generally stick with classics and custom orders (soft taco sub grilled chicken, plus pico). And I'll be real, the idea of this thing grossed me out. CHICKEN SHOULD NOT BE FLAT. But I had to try it. So for lunch I walked over to tha' bell.

First bite, and, yo, this thing is pretty good.

I didn't want to look too closely at the chicken. Nugget-type meat freaks me out. But it was crispy, salty, and yummy.

Halfway through and honestly I am loving this.

At this point I noticed a notable spiciness. I'm not sure if it was the chicken itself or the avocado ranch sauce, but it was a welcome kick. Also, even without the sleeve, the chicken didn't make your hands greasy, which was a concern coming in. It was probably less greasy-feeling than a McDonald's nugget.

The last bite: delicious.

Eating the Naked Chicken Chalupa was basically like eating a southwest chicken salad. Obviously, I had a burrito after this because it wasn't enough food for an actual lunch. I also had cinnamon twists.

The verdict: Prettyyy, pretty good.

Now, would I eat this thing again? Probably not. Not because it's only available for a limited time, but just because there are so many things at Taco Bell I'd rather eat. But to anyone who likes Taco Bell and isn't offended by processed, unnaturally shaped chicken, I wholly recommend this chalupa.

  1. So, will you try it?

    Yes, it looks yummy.
    Gag, no thanks.
