There are many reasons for the popularity of fast food. Unconscious mashups, incorrect holiday respects, and irreconcilable deviations from the restaurant’s main products are just a few ways fast food chains around the world embarrass themselves and make customers sick Bon Appetite.
Let’s be honest: an entire list could be dedicated just to Taco Bell items. In fact, one already is.
Not surprisingly from the marketing geniuses who decided the “Fourth Meal” should be a thing, there’s a lot to digest (or indigest) here. Potential candidates for Taco Bell’s top spot include the why-is-a-taco-joint-doing-this triangular chicken chips with nacho dipping sauce, the idiotically named Beefy Potato-rito, and the entirely appropriately-named Forbidden Burrito.
But Taco Bell saved its best dietary disaster for last. Its Kit Kat Chocoladilla boldly asks the question “why not top off your fourth meal with a chocolate sandwich?” Basically, picture a large soft tortilla slathered with Nutella-esque chocolate sauce, interspersed with chocolate chips and chunks of Kit Kat bars. If you believe the officially stated calorie count of 329, I have a chocolate-covered, tortilla-wrapped bridge in Brooklyn to sell you.
Men’s Health magazine took a matter-of-fact perspective toward the Kit Kat Chocoladilla, deeming it in line with Taco Bell’s penchant for TexMex-bastardized trial and error: “it’s about time they smashed a candy bar and chocolate chips between two halves of a flour tortilla. That whole fried-chicken-as-a-taco-shell thing,” the review continues, referencing another culinary experiment, “was just a little too bland for our drunken food cravings.”
