Taco Bell is planning to test a burrito stuffed with Cheetos ― and we just Mexican’t.
The fast-food chain, owned by Yum Brands, may be running over the border of good taste with the new product, which adds Cheetos into the mix of its usual burrito ingredients ground beef, rice and nacho cheese, according to NBC News.
Taco Bell plans to introduce the concoction in Cincinnati next month. The entertainment website AVClub.com says that will make the “Bur-Cheeto” the second-most objectionable thing to hit Ohio this summer, after the Republican National Convention.
The Cheetos burrito also is the second Cheetos product to be introduced by a fast-food company this summer. Burger King introduced “Mac N’ Cheetos” last month for an eight-week run.
Taco Bell’s Doritos Locos tacos set the stage for fast food-junk food collaborations. The chain has previously sold Cheeto-filled Crunchwrap Sliders in Canada.
For some reason, people say they find the idea of a Cheetos burrito harder to stomach.
Danny Ellis, a musician from San Diego, California, told HuffPost the burrito sounded “like a stoner’s dream date with death.”
At least one Twitter user drew a similar connection.
Chris Merrill, a radio talk show host at KFYI in Phoenix, said the Cheetos burrito sounds like “what a cardiologist gives you right before their business card.” He added: “I’d be lying if I didn’t say I want one real bad!”
Attorney Marcy Wagman Rauer said the picture of a Cheetos burrito looks like “Donald Trump exploded.”
