Watch How To Make Taco Bell’s Cheesy Core Burrito At Home

Taco Bell’s newest burrito, the one filled to the core with melted cheese, is one of the chain’s more photogenic creations. If you wanted to get your hands on one, however, you’d have to head to your nearest Taco Bell and secure an order. If you don’t drive, that could be an irritating obstacle.

Wouldn’t it be easier if you could just make it at home, anyways?

The gang at HellThyJunkFood is at it again, this time tackling Taco Bell’s new Cheesy Core Burrito. All you need is some cheese sauce, ground beef, tortillas, rice, sour cream, and a few other ingredients. They also show you how you can’t get that exact cross-section view cutting into the burrito as you would from the Taco Bell ads, but you can cheat the camera to get something just as cheesy.

In the segment, host JP got pranked with Ghost Pepper cheese, but you can use any regular cheese sauce to make your burritos.

Check out the video above for the complete recipe, in detail.

Starbucks Is Throwing HONEYCOMB CRUNCH On Frappuccinos In Hong Kong

Starbucks-HoneyComb

Starbucks is topping chunks of honeycomb crunch on their drinks. At least, in Hong Kong they are. The two new beverages are called Honeycomb Crunch Frappuccinos, Brand Eating reports.

A popular candy in the UK and Hong Kong, honeycomb crunch features a sweet flavor combined with a honeycomb appearance.

The Frappuccinos are available in two flavors: Orange and Mocha. The Mocha Frappuccino is the same recipe as its US variant, while Orange is a creme Frappuccino blended with an orange sauce. Both drinks are only available for a limited time in Hong Kong and Asia Pacific countries like South Korea and Thailand.

Yet another overseas fast-food item we’d love to get our hands on.

Hershey’s Brings Back Full-Sized Krackel Bars, Competes with Nestle Crunch

krackel

The long-running monopoly over crisped rice milk chocolate is finally over, it seems. For the first time since 1997, Hershey’s has decided its pint-sized, variety pack, only eaten at Halloween red Krackel bar is no longer enough to satisfy American palates. That’s right, Hershey’s has just unleashed the (full-sized) Krackel.

Already spotted at some Wal-Marts earlier this month, the new standard, XL, and Giant bars also highlight the return of real milk chocolate for the Krackel line. In 2008, Hershey’s changed the formula for several of its products to contain cheaper vegetable oil instead of more expensive cocoa butter, in doing so, sacrificing the strict FDA label “milk chocolate” for more ambiguous alternatives like “chocolate candy,” “made with chocolate,” or “chocolatey.”

For reference, competitor Nestle has continued to make its Crunch bars with milk chocolate, which just means the red and blue might finally be on the same playing field now. Ah, who am I kidding, Krackel’s still got nothing on Dibs.

14 Ice Cream Truck Treats from Your Childhood Summers

The other day I was sifting through junk mail on my porch (I have a riveting life, I know), when I heard the faint jingle of an ice cream truck. The sound was coming from around the street corner, and I was overcome by the sudden urge to chase after it. Instead, I stared in awe as a familiar white truck covered in photos of frozen treats rolled by.

My first thought: Ice cream trucks. They still exist.

So, here’s to you, ladies and gents who still remember running after that ever elusive gold mine as a kid in the hot summer sun.

Firecrackers were good but . . .

Is This a Nestle Peppermint Crunch Bar?

Take a look at the photo above. Now back at me. Now back at the photo. Now back at me. Here’s a simple question: is the photo one of a Nestle Peppermint Crunch Bar? Not exactly. But could it be even better than that? Absolutely.

Invented in South Africa (SA), Nestle’s Peppermint Crisp is a milk chocolate candy bar filled with lots of tiny, green, mint toffee cylinders instead of the traditional rice crispies. With the bar’s ends broken off, like the kids do in SA and Australia where the bars are sold in stores, these cylinders serve as the perfect straws to carry your Red Velvet Hot Chocolates and Kahlua Midnights all the way from mug to mouth, all while picking up the minty fresh goodness in between.

According to Brand Eating, the peppermint flavor is awesome, but the milk chocolate is more milk than chocolate, making the pairing between the two only so-so.

Still, this is yet another case of the rest of the world having better food than us and a sure sign that we need to stop asking Santa for Christmas presents and start asking all our local food marketing teams to shut up and take our money.

Nestle Peppermint Crisp: 6 for $20 @ Amazon

Pic of the Day: Barbecued Pork Burger with Slaw

‘Spicing up store-bought barbecue sauce with a touch of cayenne and a splash of vinegar is an easy trick that makes a big difference. Here, pork burgers get a triple hit of flavor: The sauce gets mixed into the meat, slathered onto the cooked burgers for the last minute of grilling, and brushed on the bun. A cabbage slaw with a creamy dressing tops them off with just the right crunch’.
