Taco Bell Will Have Us Dip Our Tacos in Fritos Now

After introducing the world to Doritos Locos Tacos in 2012 and Waffle Tacos in 2014, Taco Bell can do nothing to truly surprise us anymore — but damned if they aren't trying.

Sources in Bakersfield, Calif., report that nearby Taco Bell locations are testing an item dubbed the Double Dipper: a grilled, meat-and-cheese-filled tortilla (reminiscent of the discontinued Grilled Stuft Nacho) served with a side of nacho cheese dipping sauce and a side of crushed Flamin' Hot Fritos. The idea is that patrons can first dunk their Double Dipper in the cheese, then dip that corner into the crushed Fritos, effectively tarring-and-feathering their fast food with cheese and chips.

The item is being advertised at restaurants with the slogan "It's OK to Double Dip," a phrase that has literally never been uttered in reference to fast-food quesadillas and hot Frito dip.

Taco Bell's Double Dipper is currently only available in the Bakersfield area (for a paltry 99 cents), but seeing as this item comes from the same company that greenlit it's probably safe to assume that Double Dippers will show up at a Taco bell near you.

So what do you think? Would you try it?
