Taco Bell Just Took The Crunchwrap Supreme And Made It Bigger

triple double crunchwrap

Bigger is always better, or at least that seems to be Taco Bell’s idea with its newest product. Crunchwrap fans will soon be able to enjoy the Triple Double Crunchwrap.

The new item will feature the same items as the original Crunchwrap Supreme but, as the name suggests, triple doubled. This means there will be double layers of seasoned beef, nacho cheese sauce and a double layer of the crunchy tostada shell.

There will also be a spicy version, which will have the same ingredients including fresh jalapenos and spicy ranch sauce.

The Triple Double Crunchwrap will be available nationwide July 17. Both the spicy and the regular Triple Double Crunchwrap will be available for $3.49, just 30 cents more than the Crunchwrap Supreme.

It can also be purchased as part of the $5 Big Box, which will get customers a spicy or regular Triple Double along with a medium drink, a Doritos Locos Taco, and a crunchy taco.

The original Crunchwrap Supreme was launched in 2005, and an instant hit at the time.  Taco Bell has also made the AM Crunchwrap breakfast item. The announcement of this newest Crunchwrap has already sparked excitement.

Apparently some people have even had the chance to try it. There were comments about the weight, but Taco Bell did promise big.

TACO POPPERS: Reimagining Taco Bell Crunchwrap Supreme As French Fries

taco-bell-crunch-wrap-fries-taco-poppers

Yesterday Instagram chef @TymBussanich made headlines for turning a McDonald’s Big Mac into french fries, but today–he’s making noise by turning Taco Bell’s Crunchwrap Supreme into DIY TACO POPPERS.

The process is simple: Crunch Wrap Supreme (flour tortilla, beef, nacho cheese sauce, a tostada shell, sour cream, lettuce) cut up into thin strips then battered with crushed up Jalapeno-flavored Cheetos!

Who knows, maybe this DIY recipe will get so popular that Taco Bell has no choice but to adopt it to their growing menu. Or not. Either way — it’s not even the craziest thing we’ve heard about re: Taco Bell this week. Did you hear they’re testing out an entire taco shell made of crispy chicken?!

But back to the party at hand…I think it’s safe to say fries that taste like tacos are a bigger achievement today:

Taco Bell Uses Shrink Ray to Test $1 Crunchwrap Sliders

crunchwrap

Before the gimmicks, before Doritos, before taco waffles, there was Taco Bell’s Crunchwrap: a humble bit of fast food ingenuity, that combined everything decent about fake Mexican food into one neat, catchily named package. So, yes, you can say we’re a little excited about this.

Out in Ohio, Taco Bell is currently testing — has been testing for a least a month now — a new line of mini Crunchwraps they’re calling Crunchwrap Sliders, because screw real food categories, right? Like the original Crunchwrap, these guys take a firm, folded tortilla and stuffed it with your choice of beef and cheddar, barbecue chipotle chicken, or bacon, lettuce, and tomato fillings, but in a size barely larger than an open adult palm. Instead of the original taco shell round, the sliders also get their crunch from a nice helping of Fritos chips, presumably for size reasons, but maybe also because the tiny corn curls were feeling left out of big brother Doritos’ party.

Either way, if you’re in the area, you can grab yours for just $1, or all three for less than a cost of a regular Crunchwrap (about $3.29).

These are the Worst Foods to Eat While Driving

As a lifelong commuter, here’s a situation I’ve found myself in more times than I’d like to admit:

It’s 6 p.m. and I’ve just gotten out of work (or class or internship or whatever) and I. Am. Starving. With a capital “Sta.” I don’t want to wait for dinner and chances are when I get home, I’ll just have to bury myself in more work anyway, so I do the only logical thing and head to the nearest watering hole to pick myself up a little something-something—you know, just to keep me and my fat ass company for the next 45 minutes.

And after doing this for a while now, I can proudly say I’ve learned a few things. Here’s a brief (by no means inclusive) list of foods I’ve learned it sucks to eat on a long drive home:

Burritos

Now I’m not talking about all burritos. In fact, I think it’s safe to say that Taco Bell has absolutely perfected car food. Their tacos and burritos are more tortilla than meat and their Crunchwrap Supreme is definitive proof that God loves everybody, even the chronically one-handed. No, no, I’m talking about you, Chipotle. And you, quasi-authentic Mexican place I still get embarrassed trying to pronounce the name of. Your food is amazing, but when I’m fiending for some Carne Asada on the way home and everything just falls out everywhere after the first bite, ain’t nobody happy. Especially not my seat covers.

Lee’s Sandwiches

Could you make a messier sandwich? I mean, I know all breads slough crumbs, but these baguettes do not leave behind crumbs. They leave behind bread shrapnel. Lots of it. Without fail, each and every bite I take sets off hundreds of invisible mines, sending piece after piece of French-Ameri-Viet fusion hurtling toward my carpets, where they remain buried for weeks until I find the time to pick them out with my bare hands. Plus there’s the smell. Jesus.

In-N-Out

I know you’re trying baby, and I appreciate that, I do. It literally warms my heart every time I’m pulling through the drive-thru and the cute little In-N-Out girl with her silly hat smiles at me and asks whether or not I’ll be eating in the car, but let’s be real. Them wrappers is difficult. This is not a burger you can eat with one hand. Instead you’re caught pinky and palm on the wheel, all spare fingers barely holding onto that Double-Double-y goodness, while your free hand tries gently to peel back layer after layer of wax wrapping so your next bite isn’t just a mouthful of paper. Which, if you haven’t tried it, is actually pretty damn difficult to do. The only saving grace here are the fries, which are easy, and are probably the only reason I haven’t stopped doing this yet, in spite of all the car safety laws I know I’m breaking. YO-freaking-LO.

Alcohol

Just kidding. Foodbeast does not suggest or recommend drinking and driving. That would be dumb.

Any saucy/greasy or otherwise obnoxiously messy handheld thing

This is probably the saddest one on this list. This is what I eat when I hate the world and I hate myself and I really really really just need something battered and bathed in pig fat. In all seriousness though, eating this stuff while driving sucks. If you’re anything like me, chances are the guilt from buying the two dozen garlic parmesan wings is enough to convince you to try and be neat and hold the things with a napkin—which would, of course, ultimately fail, leaving you with dozens if not hundreds of little greasy finger prints all over your steering wheel, door handle and stick shift. Yeah, not pretty. And yeah, I’m driving stick.

Now, there are definitely foods that don’t suck to eat as a commuter. There are french fries and Taco Bell, as we’ve said. There are KFC chicken wraps, if you’re into that. In my perfect world, every rush hour craving would be for Panda Express.

First of all, the two-item entree comes in a huge box that can sit comfortably on my lap. Second of all, as long as you get the right things, you can stick it all with a fork—it’s amazing. So thank you Panda, for being the most commuter-friendly food I can think of (at least for the moment). Thank you Orange Chicken. Thank you steamed rice. Thank you, most of the things on the Panda Express menu. Except you, fried rice, you and your oily, slippery, un-forkable bullsh*t. You can go suck a fat one.

Think we missed one? What do you think are the worst foods to eat with driving?

Taco Bell Launching an A.M. Crunchwrap

Available now at more than 850 restaurants in 10 Western states, Taco Bell will be launching what they’re coining the “cornerstone” of their FirstMeal breakfast menu, an A.M. Crunchwrap.

The wrap includes scrambled eggs, bacon or sausage, cheese and a hash brown all wrapped and toasted in a flour tortilla. Available for $2.49 at participating locations until 11 a.m. wherever FirstMeal is an option.

I know I’ll be asking for a squirt of sour cream in my A.M. Crunchwrap, because, well, why in the world not?

If you get a chance to try the new wrap, let us know what you think in the comments!

Taco Bell Limited Time Summer Deal: 99¢ Crunchwrap Supreme

Taco Bell has taken the middle of June as a springboard for a summer Crunchwrap Supreme discounting effort. The limited time deal allows customers to pickup a Crunchwrap Supreme, between Sunday 6/12 to Saturday 6/18, for just 99¢. Legalities include a limit of 2 per person, at participating locations, with tax extra.

While the 99¢ price tag is still a price break on the popular menu item, some may recall a late February initiative earlier this year that priced the Crunchwrap Supreme at 88 cents.

The Taco Bell Six-Ply Crunchwrap

Inspired by Burger King’s Stuffed Steakhouse Burger, Nick Rallo and Patrick Michels teamed up on this fabulous looking Taco Bell Six-Ply Crunchwrap. This fan mashup sets out to put an end to all stuffed food combos by utilizing a Crunchwrap Supreme base topped with a double-decker taco, a gordita and a Mexican Pizza. I love the drizzle of Taco Bell branded hot sauce throughout.
