This one is for you, Sarah!

Before taking the red-eye flight back to Los Angeles from Hawaii, I had to have the obvious choice was:

To the right is a 1/2 lb Cheesy Bean and Rice Burrito: A warm flour tortilla loaded with hearty beans, seasoned rice, a blend of three cheeses, nacho cheese sauce, zesty sauce and fiesta salsa.

To the left is something that I couldn't find on Taco Bell's's a grilled burrito thingie with a flat taco shell stuck inside (thus the round shape). [Somehow I don't think Taco Bell will be calling me soon to ask me to write their food descriptions.] (Update: It's called a Crunchwrap. Thanks, Stacy.)

And of course, Dr. Pepper.

*Sigh* Life's simple pleasures.

And I thought you were going to say Zippy's.

Man, Zippy's is so back-in-the-day. There used to be a Zippy's on Kauai, but it closed about 15 years ago. Did they still have them on Maui when you lived there?

The grilled burrito thingy is called a Crunchwrap! My husband and I love Taco Bell and for the longest time they didn't have it here in Canada! We would go to the States on a Saturday afternoon just to get it! YUMMM! We finally got a Taco Bell this fall, but only one. We have to drive very much out of our way to get there, but we don't care!

By the way, I'm enjoying your blog. I'm a friend of Nicole's but I have been learning a lot about military life from reading all of her friends' blogs. I've ordered BagGal Mascara online, by the way! Funny!

You know, they actually did have a Taco Bell in Grafenwoehr on the post before they started all of the renovations...but I have to say that the ONE thing that totally annoyed me about it (and all of the post facilities) was that they NEVER had Dr. Pepper...just Coke, regular Coke...ugh. God Bless the states...where you can get Taco Bell and Dr. Pepper...ahh.

They have one in Würzburg too, so when my bf gets back, it'll be Taco Bell everyday...okay, not EVERY day, but maybe every And they DO have Dr. Pepper!

I hate you so much! I love Taco Bell, but I can't eat it because it makes me into an utter cow.

And there you are, scarfing a double AND PLANNING TO EAT TACO BELL EVERY DAY. And to top it all off, you've got a gorgeous figure.

Don't mind me, I'll just be in the corner munching on my tofu... Snarling at nothing in particular.

I hope you choked on your Crunchwrap.


After the excitement of your boyfriend wears off, can I meet you two in the Wurzburg PX?

Airforcewife: You are like the mirror in Snow White...I need to have you full-time...

And if it makes you feel any better, I am eating steamed broccoli, chicken breast, and some whole wheat noodles as I type. I gotta offset the future Taco Bell binges.

Sarah: Damn...why didn't we think of that sooner? You could have gotten me on

And after the excitement of my bf wears off...that's like NEVER! However, I can be excited about my bf, eat TB and meet up with you all at the same time...I've got mad skillz! It's a date!

Was it just some cheesy, melty summer dream? Or maybe some kind of crunchy and cool, grilled trick? Sure, get you all charged up on this sure-fire Taco Bell sensation…then take it away? Well limited time offer no more!

Without getting into all the details, I work on the product development team at Taco Bell in Irvine, Calif. When I first started working here, I would get a least a comment a month about bringing back the Chili Cheese Burrito (aka, Chilito). But nothing ever prepared me for the level of “Bring it Back” comments I received for last project I worked on: the Crunchwrap Supreme.

As soon as this limited time offer expired back in July 2005, the emails and phone calls poured in. “I’m going to kill myself if you don’t bring the Crunchwrap back” one customer said (really…and yes, he was joking). Due to the overwhelming support from dedicated fans such as you, the company has decided to bring Crunchwrap back as a permanent item – it will be as easy as ordering a Burrito Supreme or Mexican Pizza.
