Taco Bell has unveiled its latest menu item – and it’s doubtful anyone will be ordering it with a side of guacamole.
The Chocoladilla is a new dessert offering now being tested by the chain in the US after a UK debut last fall.
The treat is made with melted Kit Kats or Twix bars stuffed inside a tortilla – but, despite its likeness to a quesadilla, there’s not cheese.
Hello Chocoladilla: Taco Bell unveiled their new dessert item, the Chocoladilla, complete with melted Kit Kats inside a tortilla
The original Chocoladilla is made with Kit Kats, while the caramel Chocoladilla uses Twix. Both are available at select Wisconsin locations until mid-November, according to USA Today. Each is being sold for just $1.
Instead of using cheese to bind the tortilla together, as in a quesadilla, stores grill the Chocoladillas so the candy bars melt inside.
Since the Chocoladilla was announced, people have shared their distaste for and confusion over the unconventional menu item.
One person wrote on Twitter: ‘Taco Bell: Where LSD is required at all new products meetings.’
Another made it very clear that he won’t be spending his last moments before the end of the world in a Taco Bell. The tweet said: ‘The final horseman of the apocalypse has arrived in the form of Taco Bell’s Chocoladilla, a quesadilla replacing cheese with melted Kit Kat bars.’
Confusion and disbelief: After the news was announced, Twitter users went to the social media platform to share their bewilderment
The end is near: One user said that the final horseman of the apocalypse had arrrived in the form of the Chocoladilla
It’s really happening: Another user went for a similar end of the world theme in their tweet
A recipe for disaster: A Twitter user who goes by the name OddMan thought that the dessert menu item would bring forth some unwanted digestive issues
Another Twitter user had a similar idea, and also felt that the end was near. He said: ‘It’s the end of the world…officially. Introducing to you Taco Bell’s Kit Kat quesadilla minus the cheese. For real.’
And others thought the idea was a recipe for disaster – in the bathroom: ‘Taco Bell is testing a Kit Kat quesadilla. Which means now your diarrhea can smell like someone took a dump at the Nestle factory.’
The insults didn’t stop there, with others continuing to share their disbelief over not just the item itself, but the name.
As some pointed out, Taco Bell didn’t see to look up what ‘ladilla’ meant.
Ladilla is a Spanish word that translates to ‘crabs’ – and not the red crustacean, but the sexually-transmitted disease.
Not a very good idea: A Twitter user questioned whose idea it was to give the Chocoladilla its name
It got worse: Someone’s year got a whole lot worse with the introduction of the Chocoladilla
Barf: One man made his disgust known with one simple word – ‘Barf’
Don’t knock it til you try it: One man wasn’t completely thrown off by the idea of a Chocoladilla
Another user seemed to be having a bad year that only got worse with the introduction of the Chocoladilla. Neil Schloth posted: ‘Just when it seemed that 2017 couldn’t get any worse, Taco Bell is like “hold my Kit Kat quesadilla.'”
While another kept his point short and to the point in a tweet that shared the news with the Chocoladilla with the simple caption: ‘Barf.’
Overall, people remained wary of the menu addition – but there was one Twitter user who manged to poke fun at Taco Bell and not completely knock the idea of trying the Chocoladilla.
Mitch Carr said: ‘This is disgu – I mean you can’t really – well maybe I could – okay just give me one – I’ll hate myself later’ before hashtaging the infamous Chocoladilla.
Despite the somewhat negative reception, Taco Bell isn’t at all fazed. Spokeswoman Emily Erskine said: ‘You can see the attention is speaking for itself.’
