welcome to peep this out reviews with Ian K
stay frosty Taco Bell unveils with what
they’re calling this year’s biggest innovation
as it takes their fan favorite chalupa
into cheesy new territory and it looks
like that cheesy new territory has been
aged by six months guys feast your eyes
on the toasted cheddar chalupa featuring
six-month aged sharp cheddar toasted
right into the shell and I have to admit
this looks really really nice the
textural look on the outside is looking
nice and crispy and it looks really nice
against that chalupa shell they’re
looking really cool I like how it sits
in the naked chicken chalupa sleeve so
it’s gonna be easier to hold and not
get your fingers too greasy let’s take a
look on the inside of this one as you
can see all the usual Taco Bell goodies
here we’ve got reduced fat sour cream
lettuce cheese tomatoes then on the very
bottom I decided to go with some steak
just to switch it up a bit here but
looking okay for what it is this is
actually very similar to the regular
chalupa supreme the only difference is
instead of a three cheese blend you’re
just getting a little bit of shredded
cheese here but for all intents and
purposes this really is the toasted
cheddar chalupa supreme in my eyes
looking really cool let’s see if the
flavor is gonna deliver on this one it
smells really really good this cheese is
very strong on this one guys it’s the
toasted cheddar chalupa brand new here
at Taco Bell let’s peep out this flavor yeah
definitely a very sharp smelling cheddar
cheese on this one for sure guys very
excited to get into this one but before
I do and like always if you guys are fans

drops every week here we go it’s the
toasted cheddar chalupa with steak here
at Taco Bell
mmm crunchy mm-hmm
strong rich cheese flavor on that really
nice I got to admit though while I am
loving the toasted cheddar flavor of
this one it’s got a nice saltiness to it
it’s kind of clashing just a little bit
with the actual chalupa shell itself I
mean the chalupa on its own it’s kind of
like a little bit of a buttery type of
flatbread like a pita but it’s got its
own thing going on with that but with
this cheese added to it the sharpness of
that aged cheddar is really going
toe-to-toe with it but I have to admit
it seems just a little bit overwhelming
just a little bit to me at least but the
flavor is decent everything on the
inside of the actual chalupa is the same
as I always know from the chalupa itself I
mean I like it it’s taste you don’t get
me wrong but it’s just a little off to
me but let’s just keep going with it
well it’s definitely a smart move to
have the sleeve with this one because
it’s a very oily type of outer coating
obviously here guys so I’m glad that
they actually have some protection for
the fingers but on the inside again all
the usual stuff from Taco Bell I decided
to go with the steak like I mentioned
because I am a fan of the steak here
anyway and I thought the meat would be
just a little bit more milder to really
give me more of the flavor of this
toasted shell on the outside to really
see how the quality of it is instead of
just the beef which I find just a little
overwhelming sometimes but guys I like
the toastiness of this one I like the
overall flavor of the cheese itself but
like I said I think it’s just a little
off in terms of what they have it on
here because of the flavor of the actual
chalupa shell itself being what it is of
course that’s just my humble opinion but
on the real as tasty as the cheese is on
this it really only makes me long to the
idea of having like a newer version of
the quesalupa that came out a few
years back that was actually pretty
amazing with the pepper jack cheese on
the inside so you had a little bit of
that cheese pull action and just seemed
more full but this is kind of a step in
the direction to give you something
similar but a little bit easier for them
to make a have a feeling but like the
quality of it but like I said the
execution is just a little off because
of the combination of the sharpness of
the cheese on this one and the shell
itself but it’s tasty though it’s not
bad so overall not bad in the execution
because you do get a decent amount of
that aged cheddar on the outside you can
really see the textural difference it’s
really really nice one thing to note
also with this is the chalupa shell
itself does feel just a little bit
thinner compared to the standard one so
you’re probably noticing that on the
sides there but decent for what this is
it’s not something I don’t think I would
ever get again to be honest even in the
beef form but only because the chalupa
is not exactly my all-time favorite I
know a lot of you guys
love it but for this execution of it for
this type of novelty it’s okay for what
it is yeah this one wasn’t the banger I
was hoping it was gonna be I mean
naturally the sharp cheddar and the
outside is the major highlight it’s the
major selling point and what they
executed with that is very very good I
mean the quality of that aged cheddar
was really tasty I just think it would
have been better suited on something
maybe on the outside of a quesalupa
type of shell and maybe a little cheese on the inside of that to really load it up but as
it stands that’s just wishful thinking
and what I got here today it’s just okay
so with that said based upon my opinion
of this one I’m gonna have to give the
toasted cheddar chalupa the steak
variant just an OK 7 out of 10 I
really can’t go much higher than that
because naturally the quality overall
was really great on the shell itself and
everything on the inside was the
familiar talked about flavor it’s just
that like you’ve heard me mentioned
throughout this review something was
just off between the flavor of the
chalupa shell itself and that toasted
cheddar it just didn’t really feel like it
was working for me but overall it’s just
all right now of course the obvious
question is do you think this one looks
all right drop those comments down below
are you really excited to get what’s
supposed to be one of the biggest
innovations ever a Taco Bell a try over
here and if you are how excited are you
to try it with the steak the beef or
maybe even the chicken if you can get it
that way I’m sure you can drop those
comments down below and definitely let
me know and with that this is Ian K
