IRVINE, Calif. — Taco Bell announced Tuesday that it is testing a new menu item, which is made with a massive Cheez-It.
The new menu item that Taco Bell announced it is testing is called “the Big Cheez-It Tostada”, according to a news release from Taco Bell. The item features the classic Taco Bell tostada but adds in a massive Cheez-It square to get an extra crunch and cheese taste to your food. The Cheez-It is 16 times its original size.
“The Big Cheez-It Tostada” comes with seasoned ground beef, sour cream, tomatoes, lettuce and shredded cheddar cheese for $2.49, according to Taco Bell.
“There are few things that everyone can agree on... but the iconic flavors from Taco Bell menu items and Cheez-It snacks appeal to all,” said Taco Bell’s Chief Food Innovation Officer, Liz Matthews, in a news release. “We’re thrilled about this new concept with Cheez-It, which gives our fans the chance to experience the real cheese and crunch they love from both of our brands in a whole new way.”
According to CNN, the second item that Taco Bell is testing is a “Big Cheez-It Crunchwrap Supreme,” which is made with seasoned ground beef, nacho cheese sauce, lettuce, tomatoes, and sour cream on a giant Cheez-It for $4.29.
Taco Bell is testing both items at only one restaurant in Irvine, California, for the next two weeks, according to CNN.
