When it comes to fast food, it’s safe to say that American kicks every other country’s ass in terms of quantity, sizes, variety and price. Quality is a tough category for any fast food company to pin down. With Canada’s recent additions to their Taco Bell menu, they might very well be gunning for that throne.
In a move that upsets every American that has wanted this, Taco Bell in Canada has come out with their new Cheetos Crunchwrap Sliders. This is upsetting to American Taco Bell enthusiasts for one reason: the chips.
When Taco Bell first introduced the Sliders, they came in three flavors: spicy chicken, BLT and beefy cheddar. All three flavors were good and each boasted their own unique qualities. The only issue was that they put Frito’s corn chips in them, and lets be honest, nobody gives a damn about Frito’s chips anymore.
What they SHOULD have done was used Doritos, or Cheetos, or any other brand of potato chips that ends in -to’s other than Frito’s. Canada seems to have figured that out formula out.
The company’s Canadian locations will be serving Crunchwrap Sliders of the same flavors, although they will be swapping out the American-influenced BLT Crunchwrap Slider for the Supreme Crunchwrap Slider. On top of that, they will be using delicious Cheetos Crunchy Cheddar Jalapeno chips rather than the Frito’s, which don’t make nearly as much sense in hindsight.
Unfortunately for Americans, the Crunchwrap Sliders are no longer available here, so someone pick me up on their way up to Winnipeg. I’ve got beer and Cheetos.
