Taco Bell’s Now Loading Up Their Slushies With POP ROCKS

If you thought Taco Bell went off the rails when it introduced a burrito that essentially had Pop Rocks on top, it turns out they’re not stopping there.

Out of nowhere, Taco Bell released a Strawberry Poppin’ Candy Freeze, or as you’ll probably refer to it, a Pop Rocks slushy.

You’re gonna have to hear it to believe it. New Strawberry #PoppinCandyFreeze is here.

It sounds like a big hoopla of a drink, but it’s just a berry slush with strawberry popping candy mixed in for your oral pleasure.

We got our hands on a couple to see what the fuss was about. Unfortunately, while we could hear some popping, there wasn’t much of a party going on in our mouths when we took our sips. I MAYBE felt one pop rock go off in my mouth, but even that was probably just me really wanting it to happen.

I was expecting the popping to sound more like this:

It seems that Taco Bell has a sudden infatuation with popping candy, as just last month they unveiled a Firecracker Burrito with Pop Rocks included.

Maybe you guys will have a more poppin’ experience than we did. It is very possible that our Taco Bell sucks, and they skimped on the Pop Rocks, even though I asked for extra.

The whimsical new drink is available nationwide, and is scheduled to run until the first week of October, or until supplies last.
