QUESALUPA: Taco Bell's Next Big Thing Might Be a Cheese-Stuffed Chalupa Shell


It's called the "Quesalupa" and it takes the brand's notorious flaky and fried chalupa shell and treats it like a quesadilla, stuffing that bad boy with melted pepper jack cheese.

The #foodbeast friendly people at Taco Bell are giving this product the same "throw that shit in the deep end" trial it gave to its successful Doritos Locos Taco shell, by testing it in Toledo, the fourth most populous city in Ohio (thanks Wikipedia).

But Taco Bell seems to know what they're doing, reaming the crowds for as much social media cred as they can before they release their gastronomical abomination to the masses. Or not. Apparently it's all up to Toledo, OH, where the Quesalupa will be available in 36 stores in the area for a test price of $2.99:




 Toledo has the Quesalupa. If they don’t like it, America won’t get it. Tweet w/ #Quesalupa if u want it in your town. -- Taco Bell

We've gathered a few of the Instagram photos we could find of people trying it out. If you get your hands on one, definitely tag #foodbeast in it or upload it in the comments—we'd love to see!

Here's a growing list we'll keep updated:
