If you were closely monitoring Super Bowl commercials on Sunday night, then you already know the news: Taco Bell‘s latest hybrid creation has arrived.

The fast food chain debuted the “Quesalupa” during the broadcast, which is essentially a mashup of a chalupa and a quesadilla, featuring all the classic chalupa fixings of beef, lettuce, tomato, sour cream, and cheddar cheese — with the added bonus of having a shell stuffed with melted pepper jack cheese.  If all that sounds good to you, you can officially get your hands on one starting Monday.

Sunday night’s ad set very high expectations for the new menu item, claiming it was going to be “bigger than everything,” including but not limited to: man buns, Tinder, drones and James Harden‘s beard.

Fans had been teased of the arrival in the weeks leading up to the game, with the mystery item being available for preorder before its identity was even revealed, to be picked up on the Saturday before the Super Bowl. Based on Twitter reactions from fans who got the first taste, it did not disappoint.

While we still have questions (namely, how did they get the cheese in there?), we’re pretty much sold. Is it lunchtime yet?

The Latest Craze in Disco Styles Is See-Through Jeans—but Beware of Foggy Bottoms

Posted on

On a clear day, you can see forever—or at least that’s the wicked thought behind L.A. designer Agi Berliner’s transparent idea: see-through jeans. Exhibitionists notwithstanding, most folks wear them over bathing suits or as attention-getting evening wear with halters, garter belts and body stockings. Created for the disco crowd, the $34 jeans are selling like, well, hot pants. In just six weeks, 25,000 pairs have already been sold in such major department store chains as Macy’s, Bonwit’s and Saks.

“What’s limiting American designers is that we’re afraid to do something different,” says Berliner, 32, a Hungarian émigré who fled with her family to the U.S. in 1956. Agi thought up the gimmick in London while marveling at the way plastics were being employed by designers of punk fashion. In her L.A. office, where she designs for La Parisienne junior sportswear, Agi spent five days on the phone and six weeks testing to come up with the right plastic.

Agi herself tried out the French-cut jeans with the zipper in front, and quickly found several problems: Some plastics tore away from stitching, others wouldn’t bend and all fogged with perspiration. The ideal material proved to be a vinyl supplied by a bookbinder. The steam was eliminated with a series of vents behind the knees and in the crotch. “They’re no hotter than polyester pants,” claims Agi, “and if you wear them with tights, they won’t stick to your legs.”

Whatever the discomfort and despite the problem of Saturday night feverishness, discomaniacs report one major advantage of the plastic pants: no laundry bills. To keep Berliner’s see-through jeans clear, all the wearer needs is a little Windex.

More crap that looks nothing like the pix when you get it!

Every Taco Bell item is the same 5 ingredients remixed with a new shell, and in this case what looks like a pastry crust.

Same old, same old. More fat for your buck. Taco bell needs to look for healthier choices, not more fat laden calories. A taco, quesadilla, etc. could essentially be lower fat, but they add fat to get you addicted. Yes, people fat is addictive just like sugar/carbs.

P.S. Too me it looks like a deep fried taco. Not good…

Ahh I hate to burst your bubble, but this is the Mexican version of a Calzonne, with the same crap ingredients that Taco Bell has been pushing for the past 40-up years..
