Taco Bell better watch out, the taco game is getting even more crowded.
KFC in France revealed a surprising new menu item: the KFC double taco. This announcement comes right on the heels of Burger King releasing its own taco across the United States.
The KFC double taco will, not surprisingly, be filled with fried chicken tenders, along with tomatoes, cheese and guacamole. These ingredients will all be placed in a hard tortilla shell, which is then wrapped in a soft shell.
On Instagram, KFC France describes the Double Taco as being like diving into a sea made out of guacamole, cheese, tomatoes and chicken tenders. As of now, it’s unclear if there are any plans to bring the chicken taco to the United States.
Fast food lovers in the U.S. would have to settle for the crispy taco at Burger King, one of a few fast-food restaurants offering tacos.
A spokesperson for Burger King described the crispy taco as “a crispy, crunchy tortilla filled with seasoned beef, shredded cheddar cheese and crisp lettuce, all topped with just the right amount of our savory taco sauce.”
It’s available nationwide, but only for a limited time.
While it seems like everyone else is getting into the taco business, Taco Bell is branching off into the hotel business for a short period of time this summer. Reservations are already full at the Taco Bell Hotel and Resort, so if your rooms aren’t already booked, you’ll just have to find a regular hotel with a Taco Bell nearby.
