If you are on a summer diet, you can forget it because Taco Bell has truly answered our prayers this week with the Mexican Pizza making an official comeback and now a Milk Bar collaboration that we didn't know we needed.
Taco Bell's iconic Crunchy Taco shell and New York-based dessert company Milk Bar's famous truffles are coming together to form the all-new Strawberry Bell Truffle! The Strawberry Bell Truffles are basically a cake bite giving you just the right amount of sweetness and crunch.
The vanilla cake is studded with strawberry pieces and soaked in strawberry milk which is then filled with a sweet corn fudge center. The outside is coated with a sweet and slightly salty strawberry and sweet corn cake coating, studded with tiny pieces of Taco Bell’s Crunchy Taco Shell. YUM.
Can we eat a box now? Yes and no.
The Strawberry Bell Truffle will begin testing in-stores on Thursday, August 4 in Orange County, CA ( 14042 Red Hill Ave., Tustin, CA 92780) as a two truffle package for $2.99 until August 16, or until supplies last, which we all know will likely be for just one day.
If you are in NY or LA then you're in luck! The Strawberry Bell Truffle can also be purchased at the New York Milk Bar outpost (1196 Broadway at 29th Street, New York, NY 10001) and Los Angeles Milk Bar (7150 Melrose Avenue, Los Angeles, CA 90046), starting on August 4.
"The Strawberry Bell Truffle is the first mashup of its kind to be served to consumers on a large, test scale from our brands. This one-of-a-kind truffle is the friendship-fueled fruition of a concept made possible by a mutual dedication to innovation," said Rene Pisciotti, Executive Chef at Taco Bell Corp. "Christina Tosi and her culinary team worked closely with experts within Taco Bell's very own Test Kitchen on this collaboration, and we couldn’t think of better partners to learn from and team up with."
Who knows, if fans love it, maybe Taco Bell can make it a part of the permanent menu alongside that lovely Mexican Pizza!
