Another week, another new creation from Taco Bell.
The fast-food joint known for taking chances, from Kit Kat quesadillas to Pop Rocks burritos to tacos with a fried egg for a shell, is rolling out a new item but this time they’re keeping things rather Cali. The Cali Burrito, which originated in the San Diego area, is usually filled with meat, cheese, salsa, guacamole, and a helping of french fries. Now, Taco Bell is rolling out their own version, called the California Loaded Fries Burrito, for only $1.99 apiece.

Naturally, you’ll have to go to Charleston, West Virginia in order to try one out as that’s the test market for this particular creation.
According to Eater, this isn’t the only fry-loaded burrito that the Bell is testing out. They’re trying out a trio of Loaded Fries Burritos in total. The other two options include a version topped with chipotle sauce instead of guacamole or a version that doesn’t have either sauce or guac. Not sure what the point of getting a burrito without guac or chipotle sauce would be, but we suppose you gotta provide the option.
Bigger than just the burrito, the move seems to indicate that Taco Bell is going to be putting a big push behind their french fries. They previous tested out a nacho fries dish and seem to be hinting that a national launch of Taco Bell french fries could be impending. That could be a gamechanger for Bell-heads who will have to make some seriously tough decisions at 1 a.m. when trying to figure out how to get the most of the $7 in their pocket.
