Food Review (Loaded Grillers from Taco Bell)

Beefy Nacho Griller: This one, to me, is the least interesting of the three (not to say any of them are really original). Beef, nacho cheese, and crunchy red strips. Taco Bell's just taunting all of us with this thing. It's almost a Beefy Nacho Burrito, but it has the flavorless red tortilla strips instead of the cheese ones. I dislike this one mostly because the strips are nothing but a soggy mess once the bread gets grilled. Why even bother with them? Unless you literally eat your Griller instantly or in the restaurant at Taco Bell, it'll be mush by the time you get home. Still tasty and of a good value, but nothing new here. 3.75/5

Loaded Potato Griller: Yikes. It scares me to see that a lot of people like this one best. The potatoes at Taco Bell are pretty decent (I get their taco or the side of potatoes time-to-time), but this burrito is nothing but a salty mess to me. It's potatoes, nacho cheese, sour cream (I always get minus sour cream in burritos.), and bacon. Oh. Bacon. That should be good. Nope. In the past Taco Bell has tried putting bacon in/on things, but their bacon is awful. It's bacon bits straight out of a container and they're unappetizing... they add almost nothing but salt to an already salty Griller. This could be a tasty one if Taco Bell used "real" bacon. Not sure I'd have this one again. 3/5

Spicy Chicken Griller: Chicken, sour cream (not for me), and Lava sauce. It's a simple little concoction, but it's awesome. The chicken has a citrus flavor, and the Lava sauce brings a good heat. The first time I tried it I didn't think it was so hot, but the second time I felt a good burn. It also seems like this Griller tends to have more weight to it than the other two, so you get more for your money. 4/5

A pretty good promotion from Taco Bell, but I'm still waiting on the damn bastards to make the Beefy Crunch Burrito (or even the Beefy Nacho Burrito, I guess...) a PERMANENT MENU ITEM. I'll be going to Taco Bell quite a bit to take advantage of these cheap 99 cent Grillers.
