We Tried Taco Bell's New French Fries And My Body Wasn't Ready

"They tasted exactly like what I imagined Taco Bell fries would taste like."

If you haven't heard, Taco Bell's new Nacho Fries are officially in stores across the country.

The fries are covered with Mexican seasoning and served with a side of nacho cheese for your dipping pleasure. Oh, and they're also on the Taco Bell $1 menu.

While you can order the fries as just a side, you can also upgrade them to Supreme or Bell Grande if you want your fries topped with beef, pico de gallo, sour cream, and nacho cheese.

Here's what the regular side order of fries looked like IRL.

Not too shabby.

And here's what the Supreme fries looked like IRL.

Not super photogenic.

I enlisted my fast food soulmate Anjali to help judge the new fries, and here's what we thought.

Anjali's Review: These taste like Dorito fries. I get the appeal of "nacho fries" but these things aren't a great vehicle for meat. Definitely great vehicle for sauces though. The fries had a great texture, but I feel like they would be much better if they were spicy?? There's no reason why they shouldn't be spicy, because if something has red spices on it, I'm going to assume it's spicy. All in all, they taste exactly what I imagine Taco Bell fries would taste like.

Delaney's Review: For fast-food french fries, these are pretty great. They're not limp or soggy, which is a plus. I definitely think more spice would kick these up a notch. Also, my southern brain is just programmed to think that red spices on my fries means they're gonna be cajun, so I think that messed with my impression a bit. I can definitely see drunk Delaney going to town on these bad boys.

So basically these fries are pretty damn great. Plus, if you want to spice them up, just grab some diablo sauce to pour on top!
