Taco Bell’s new Naked Chicken Chalupa is set to launch January 26 and we’re all itching to get our hands on one. That’s still an awfully long time for us to wait for fast food. Though, we see the light at the end of the fried chicken tunnel.
A group of Instagram’s most prominent food influencers were lucky enough to get an early preview of the new menu item and try it for themselves. As you can see from the video, the Chalupa was met with some pretty positive reactions and even more stunning photographs.
Here’s an exclusive look at Taco Bell’s upcoming Naked Chicken Chalupa in real life.
The new item is made with a fried chicken shell.
