Taco Bell Black Jack Taco

blackjacktaco.jpgOK, I saw a commercial for a new taco at Taco Bell. It had a black shell. Yuck. Made me think it might be rotten. After the debacle that was the Lava Taco (gross sauce that created an overall yuck factor), I wasn't too excited to try it. So, I went out and got a couple of those puppies earlier today and I'm glad I did! Here's a run down of what it's made of:

A crunchy black taco shell filled with seasoned beef, zesty pepper jack sauce, shredded lettuce and a blend of three cheeses cheddar, pepper jack and mozzarella.

This taco is awesome. The cheeses are delish and the sauce is very tasty. It also didn't need any of the Taco Bell mild or hot sauce. Just take it out of the wrapper and demolish it. I kept savoring each bite, enjoying the zestiness of the sauce. The black shell tastes the same as a regular taco and ya know what? We got a great black President, why not a great taco with a black shell. GET WITH THE TIMES PEOPLE! And for 89 cents? Pick up 3 of these today and ask for a water cup (to fill up with soda when the employees aren't looking). Recession beaten.

When I saw the commercial for this I had the same initial feeling about it as you did.

But after reading your review I'm going to try this.

Thanks and keep up the great reviews.

Tried one of these today, pretty good, the sauce was what really made it!

I too enjoyed it. Essentially the same as your basic Taco Bell hard shell taco, but the addition of the sauce really makes it. My only complaint is that Taco Bell has a real problem regulating sauce levels; while mine was plenty saucy, I've had several other people say they could barely detect the sauce at all.

Great review once again! I don't eat the Taco Runs often, but when I go I want to know if it's worth the aftermath, this tells me it should be worth it all in the end! Keep up the good calls!

My initial feeling was -- wow, I gotta try that. And, It was OK. It was worth 89 cents, maybe.

Man when i saw the commercial i thought WOW! either people have no more ideas, or this is the best idea ever, it turns out they are awesome!! so i decided to buy like 5 and just devour them!! once i finished them i wanted more and more and more, i couldn't stop they're that good. and for only 89 cents come on it is the best idea ever.

my overall rating from 1 to 10 is a... 10!!

what a jack ass review.
First, I read to demolish a taco. Then I read that I need to 'get with the times', to like a black taco just like I am suppose to like a 'GREAT black president'. Oh, and the best part, to encourage me to steal from a restaurant company, taking not paid for product (beverage) 'when employees aren't looking; i.e. shoplifting.

Thank you Harold.

I found this taco quite gross, the shell tasted nothing like a regular taco shell to me, and because of that, put me off immediately. Also, taco shells should not ever BE black, black looks rotten.

And yes, if you're too dang cheap to pay for a small cup for soda, then you should bring your own from home. Stop stealing soda, it's not free for the restaurant, and it shouldn't be free for you either
