Review: Taco Bell Chocolate Taco Dessert Kit & Potential Hiatus on the Horizon??
Junk Food Nation, before I rant, I wanted to wish my Doctor Sis a HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY! The best oldest sister I know.
Back to rant: Junk Food Nation, you know I love you. And I love this blog. But you should know that I have a temper. I’m usually pretty even keeled…but when one tiny thing sets me off, I WANT TO RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE.
Case in point: this website. You should know, I basically built this thing from scratch, and I’ve probably done the equivalent of messing around with lots of pipes and electrical and insulation and then just plastering up a wall and painting over it. Looks nice from the outside, but underneath, it’s a mess. So, once things start to breakdown, I feel 1) helpless and 2) PISSED OFF WHY IS THIS DOING THIS WHYYYYYYYY
Website slowness, long load times, buggy posting, and now all of my reviews look weird – like this one. I have no doubt that all of this is because of me. NO. DOUBT.
So what is there to be done? Well, I’m figuring it out. People have been very kind to offer assistance, and that might happen. Or maybe I’ll just blow the whole thing up and rebuild from scratch. Or maybe I’ll just stop eating junk food (HAHA).
Point is, there may be a hiatus on the horizon. I’m going to try and press on until I can’t. You might come back for a few days, and there’s nothing, nadda NOTHING. And you’ll be like, “Where the hell is the Junk Food Guy??? Eric, WTF.” BUT I’M HERE! I promise. I’m here trying to figure this stuff out.
Today’s junk food: Taco Bell Chocolate Taco Dessert Kit!
This one is for my friend Dubb over at OnSecondScoop.com and his partner in crime, Nick. We discussed the Taco Bell Chocolate Taco Dessert Kit during our last Nosh Show, and I found it! Who doesn’t love Choco-Tacos??? Let’s just get right to it.
Taco Bell Chocolate Taco Dessert Kit has 6 chocolate taco shells, chocolate sauce and sprinkles. You mean I need my own ice cream??? BOOOOO.
The Taco Bell Chocolate Taco Dessert Kit says that once the taco is prepared, it only has 260 calories. Well, not if you stuff in 4 scoops of ice cream, like I plan to…
Taco Bell Chocolate Taco Shells were weird – I broke off a piece and chewed it, and honestly, it just tasted like a REGULAR taco shell, corn flavor and everything, with just a slight hint of cocoa. The corn flavor was JUST LIKE a regular taco shell.
MMMM prepackaged confection. Those white plastic bags really get my taste buds going.
I had to go Turkey Hill when making these ice cream tacos. Had to. All Natural Vanilla Bean…I love you.
THE FINISHED PRODUCT! I have to say, these DO look fun!
Taking a bite, my overall TASTE reaction is MEH. With the ice cream, the shell flavor was entirely masked…until more crunching brought forth the corn tortilla flavor, which I wasn’t exactly wanting. More of the chocolate flavor came from the chocolate sauce itself. In the end, YOU know what this tastes like – ice cream, chocolate sauce, some crunchy tortilla chip. Woo.
BUT, from a FUN angle, this Taco Bell Chocolate Taco Dessert Kit was pretty awesome. I DID enjoy eating an ice cream taco, or making, as seen above and below, Ice Cream Nachos with my broken shell pieces.
All in all, for the little cost, I think this Taco Bell Chocolate Taco Dessert Kit was pretty awesome. Nothing surprising or unusual flavor wise, but a great concept. I dig it.
