I don't recall hearing an outcry demanding a mash-up between a burrito and a quesadilla, but the folks at Taco Bell must be hearing voices.The fast-food chain has announced it will roll out its Quesarito on Monday, bringing to an end speculation that such a product was in development and doing well in test markets.
Taco Bell says on Wednesday that the Quesarito is its best-selling test market product since it introduced its Doritos Locos Tacos line in 2012. It has sold more than 825 million of the latter
The Quesarito is a large grilled quesadilla loaded with melted cheese and filled with various protein options, seasoned rice, chipotle sauce and reduced-fat sour cream, then rolled into a classic burrito. The permanent menu item will be available for a suggested price of $1.99 with seasoned beef, and it will contain 650 calories with 34 grams of fat. The chicken version will be priced at a suggested $2.79, and will contain 620 calories and 30 grams of fat. A steak version will be priced at a suggested $2.99, and will have 640 calories and 31 grams of fat.
