TBG Reviews: Taco Bell's Bacon Club Chalupa
One of Taco Bell's most wonderful fat bombs has returned – for a limited time only!
Originally known as the "Chicken Club Chalupa" when it debuted earlier this decade, the name change and accompanying ad campaign put the proper focus on all the wonderfully salted pig fat that increases the chalupa's already impressive coronary index. The chewy, deep-fried shell is wrapped around some of Taco Bell's chopped chicken-flavored meat product. From there, a fistful of bacon is crammed in there with lettuce, tomatoes, a three cheese blend and a mayo-based sauce of some kind.
Not sure why this isn't a regular menu item as it's been insanely successful in my house and increases my Taco Bell visits to at least once a week for as long as it's available.
The Bacon Club Chalupa is priced at $2.19, by itself or for $4.99 you can get one as part of big-ass combo meal with a regular taco, bean burrito and a drink. Muslims, you're missing out.
