If you’re into bad reviews, please keep reading.
It’s a fact that Taco Bell is my favorite fast-food chain (and quite possibly restaurant) on the planet, so I was stoked to see commercials for not one, but three new menu items. Behold! The Double Decker Tacos in all of their glory:

You can probably imagine my brain’s mixed reaction with my stomach’s… And if you can’t, here’s a screenshot reenactment of their conversation:
These bad boys, despite being heavily advertised on television, were not pictured anywhere on the menu. I thought that was strange, but upon purchase, I noticed they were only a buck a piece. It makes sense; have the cheapest items on the menu available only by request, and the more expensive ones shown on screen tempting you. Never mind this little bit of display trickery – it would not thwart my intended mission – even if I did buy a Cheesy Gordita Crunch to boot.
Sweet & Spicy: Tastes like a normal double decker taco with this sauce on it: https://i.ytimg.com/vi/1mMvPnHsMIE/maxresdefault.jpg
Nacho Cheese: Tastes like a Cheesy Gordita Crunch without the jalapeño ranch sauce.
Cool Habanero: Tastes like a Cheesy Gordita Crunch with habanero ranch instead of jalapeño ranch. Whether or not it was intentional or not (due to spiciness), there wasn’t nearly enough sauce on this boss. Your mileage may vary.
Verdict: They are all amazing. They’re like a Cheesy Gordita Crunch with a soft-shell taco instead of a gordita on the outside… In fact that is precisely what they are. You can try each of them (at least for now) for less than the price of a single Cheesy Gordita Crunch. But if you haven’t had a Cheesy Gordita Crunch, you should probably just go ahead and get one of those, too. They’re God’s gift to mankind and we are all better for having one.
