In 2019, Popeyes released its Chicken Sandwich, which immediately became one of the most famous fast-food items in the country at that point. The sandwich momentarily sold out, just to return as popular as in the past. From that point forward, other inexpensive food binds have attempted to recreate that accomplishment with their own interpretation of the chicken sandwich, bringing about a continuous rivalry between the different restaurants.
Presently, Taco Bell has chosen to throw its cap in the ring with another chicken sandwich-themed thing.
The Mexican food-themed inexpensive food chain reported that the Chicken Sandwich Taco will be accessible beginning on September 2. In a press release, Taco Bell expressed that it had tried the thing at areas in Nashville, Tenn., and Charlotte, NC.
Liz Matthews, Global Chief Food Innovation Officer for Taco Bell, said, “Our new crispy chicken innovation is far from the average chicken sandwich, and we’re certain it will get a spicy reaction from sandwich and taco fans alike. Even the masterminds from our test kitchen couldn’t decide if it was more taco or sandwich, which is why we’re excited to bring in the debate team experts to have some fun.”
Taco Bell is acquiring two college debate teams to contend whether the new thing is a taco or sandwich. The discussion will air during the September 4 Georgia versus Clemson college football match-up.
The Chicken Sandwich Taco will incorporate an all-white cut of chicken with a jalapeno buttermilk coating and seasoned with Mexican spices. It will be served in a warm flatbread, folded like a taco and topped with chipotle sauce.
In the same way as other chicken sandwiches, a spicy version will be accessible that incorporates crunchy jalapeno slices.
