Taco Bell's New Tostada Is Basically a Giant Loaded Cheez-It
Here's where to get it while supplies last.
Snacking is one of our favorite ways to get through an afternoon, and when that snack is salty and cheesy, chances are it’ll be at the top of our list. That description is a fit for pleasures ranging from a box of bite-sized Cheez-Its to a cheesy Taco Bell tostada. But what happens when we combine the two?
Delicious. That’s what happens. Taco Bell and Cheez-It have partnered to create the Big Cheez-It Tostada, and it involves a Cheez-It square that is 16 times the size of those bite-sized ones in the box. But on top of that giant cheesy cracker is all sorts of other savory goodness, like Taco Bell’s seasoned beef, reduced-fat sour cream, fresh diced tomatoes, crisp lettuce and shredded cheddar cheese.
Taco Bell is also offering a digital exclusive option, available through their website or app, of a Big Cheez-It Crunchwrap Supreme, which is made with seasoned beef, nacho cheese sauce, lettuce, reduced-fat sour cream and diced tomatoes all packed inside that giant Cheez-It cracker before that is wrapped inside a tortilla that’s is then grill.
“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 Liz Matthews, Taco Bell’s chief food innovation officer, in a press 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.”
Unfortunately, you’ll have to go to California to get a taste. Both these new items are exclusively available at one Taco Bell location in Irvine, California for two weeks or while supplies last.
Let's hope it does so well that we can get it nationwide soon!
