The ingredients in Taco Bell’s latest stunt food make you wonder if the sum is greater than its parts. The new Chocoladilla only has two parts, and they are a tortilla and some Kit Kat bars. The stoners’-paradise chain actually first unveiled this unholy matrimony last fall, when it unloosed the mash-up across England, the Kit Kat’s motherland. But the Chocoladilla’s American tour is much more abbreviated, at least for now: It’s only on sale in the Milwaukee, Wisconsin, area.
Apparently, there’s also a Twix version being tested out, called the Caramel Chocoladilla:
Both options are totally self-explanatory. For just $1, you get a quesadilla where the quesa part has become candy bars. They’re lined up in a tortilla that gets folded in half and grilled until the insides melt, forming a so-called Chocoladilla. Small problem with that, though: In Spanish, ladilla actually means crab. No, not like the kind you eat — the kind you get.
Even if they’re blissfully unaware of that translation, people are still amazed that the chain had the cajones to create this food item:
All in all, Taco Bell seems very pleased with what it’s done. “You can see the attention is speaking for itself,” a spokesperson says.
