I tried Taco Bell's new Beefy Melt Burrito last night and I have to say this is some seriously underwhelming stuff.
It sounds promising enough - seasoned beef, seasoned rice, three-cheese blend and sour cream rolled up in a flour tortilla - but it's so totally "meh."
Nothing looks as perfect as the publicity shots, so it's no surprise that burrito wasn't food-glamor-gorgeous. Taste is much more important here. Unfortunately, the Beefy Melt Burrito fails to deliver.
The overall taste is okay, in that familiar Taco Bell way, but there's nothing new or different here. No flavors really stand out (actually, the mildly-flavored sour cream got completely swallowed up and lost by the meat seasonings and cheese) and the texture added by the rice is kind of strange but not unpleasant.
So, there you have it. Taco Bell's new menu addition will adequately postpone your next meal by temporarily quelling your hunger. Yeah, that's the best I can do. I've had flavored oatmeal that was more exciting.
Oh, there is one more thing: Don't unroll it to check out what's inside unless you enjoy looking at things that appear to have been used for asswipery.
