FORBIDDEN BOWL & BURRITO

Both items include "forbidden" black rice, crispy avocados and a new sauce, topped with your favorite protein and fresh veggies. The price for each varies between $3.49 and $3.99 depending on choice of protien or you can go all out and get it as part of the $5 box deal which also includes a Doritos Locos Taco, a Crunchy Taco and a medium drink.

Perhaps the most bizarre item to hit the Taco Bell menu thus far, this burrito features the usual rice, beef and cheese and red tortilla strips wrapped in a red tortilla — but it also comes with the option of adding cayenne "popping crystals" for an extra 20 cents. The sensation is similar to the popular Pop Rocks candy, causing a fizzy feeling in your mouth. Order it cheesy or spicy (loaded with chipotle sauce). For now, the rock candy is only available at four Taco Bell stores while in testing.

Why have a regular Chalupa when you can have something even bigger? Taco Bell answered this question with a double wide shell stuffed with — you guessed it — double the amount of beef, lettuce, sour cream, cheese and tomatoes. The mouthful of a creation will be available to customers through the end of July.

NAKED CHICKEN CHIPS
After the short-lived Naked Chicken Chalupa made waves across the nation, the chain introduced a new innovation in fried poultry on May 2. This time, the triangular-shaped "chips" are made entirely of crispy chicken—perfect for dipping in their signature nacho cheese sauce.

NAKED CHICKEN CHALUPA
After being tested in select locations for months, the first taco shell to be made entirely of fried chicken is finally available nationwide, starting Jan. 26 for $2.99. The "un-shelled" menu item was hit among PEOPLE staffers: "I will eat one every day of my life going forward," said one happy tester.

AIRHEADS WHITE MYSTERY FREEZE
Taco Bell revitalized every '90s kids favorite mystery by turning the white Airhead flavor into a sugary drink last September. Customers can sip on a 16 oz. slushie for $1.99 until they've either guessed the flavor or suffered a serious brain freeze — whichever comes first.

Starting in August, the fast food chain began testing exactly what it sounds like: a burrito with literal Cheetos stuffed inside of it. For only $1, we can't see why this glorious creation won't make it into stores nationwide in no time.

CHICKEN BISCUIT TACO
This short-lived taco-shaped biscuit allowed customers to fill it with four different breakfast foods—sausage, egg and cheese; bacon, egg and cheese; crispy tortilla chip-breaded chicken with country gravy; or crispy chicken with jalapeño honey.
