While the pure enthusiasm for trying these new fast food items is usually enough for me, seeing Josh Duhamel on the tube drives it over the top. Look, when Captain Lennox from Transformers tells you to get your ass to a Taco Bell and try the new $1 Nacho Fries, you get your ass to a Taco Bell and try the new $1 Nacho Fries. Social media is blowing up over these, so it must go through the Meatball gauntlet. Remember folks, I do it not for me, but for Meatball Nation. Let's go
Look, fries are fries. They're never going to be the bell of the ball, and often they're looks fall by the wayside. The only time I've ever been visually pleased with fries are when they come animal style, which is kind of cheating. However, Taco Bell is coming close. They're dusted with what appears to be taco seasoning, look cooked to perfection, and have an inviting cup of queso for accompaniment. I was expecting the portion to be a little bigger, but for only $1, there are no complaints.

Good Golly Ms. Molly, these fries are absolutely tremendous. One major gripe that I've had with Taco Bell is that they essentially use the same 7 ingredients for everything on the menu, and I am pleased to announce that the powder/taco seasoning is unlike anything I've had there yet. People like their fries all sorts of ways, but for me, I like when they're just a little soft, like old school McDonalds fries before they got all PC. (By the way, if you think plain In n Out fries are better than McDonalds fries, you are a threat to normal society and need to be committed to a mental home). Anyways, if they didn't sweeten the deal enough with the Guadalajaran pixie dust, they give you a vat of queso that elevates the entire experience to an echelon of culinary experiences that I had previously thought unimaginable. Taco Bell also offers a Nacho Fries Bell Grande that I assume are outstanding, but I don't think my little heart could take it, so I stuck to the basics.
Mouth Score: 9.5/10
Nothing to report. No agita, no stomach ache, no regrets; nothing. In fact, I feel better after eating this. I'm ready to crush day and be a productive member of this society. Thank you Taco Bell, Thank you.
