Update: Click here to read our Taco Bell Cheesy Double Decker Taco review

Taco Bell’s Double Decker Taco is my favorite menu item to eat on their vast board of kinda-but-not-really Mexican food. There’s something about the combination of a warm, soft flour tortilla, filled with beans, wrapped around a taco that contains seasoned beef, shredded cheddar cheese, and shredded lettuce that makes me crave it like a recently converted vegetarian craves meat.

It’s like Taco Bell Frankensteined their taco with their bean burrito.

This week, Taco Bell introduced a variation of their Double Decker Taco, the Cheesy Double Decker Taco. Now you might be asking yourself, but doesn’t it already have cheese? Yes, it does, but when Taco Bell adds “cheesy” to the name of a product, it’s the kitchen code word for a hearty helping of their nacho cheese sauce.

The Cheesy Double Decker Taco has 350 calories, 15 grams of fat, 5 grams of saturated fat, 30 milligrams of cholesterol, 760 milligrams of sodium, 39 grams of carbohydrates, 8 grams of fiber, 2 grams of sugar, and 14 grams of protein.

    Spot on with Taco Bell’s use of the word “cheesy”. Classic Taco Bell move, too. Disappointing, but not unexpected.

    Saw the sign for this yesterday. Of course it’s recycled ingredients, it’s Taco Bell! That’s their M.O. Can’t wait to review it on our new site, which is going up tonight.

    Had one of these the other day – not bad, it tastes as you’d expect it to, but it looks so different from the promo pics -it’s hilarious. The tortilla completely envopes tge taco, and it looks like like a quesodeia than anything else.

    8 grams of fiber? Doubtful.

    Did a review on it myself (below) and yeah it is boring. I am getting tired of taco bell just adding one the to an item and calling it new. Now for 89 cents its hard to complain too much though
