Taco Bell is testing French Fry-Loaded Burritos only in Charleston, W.Va.

A few days ago, news broke that Taco Bell is test launching new burritos filled with french fries -- and it's only available in Charleston, West Virginia now through late December.

Apparently it's modeled after a "California style" burrito that has meat, cheese, salsa, guac, and fries. That's the first burrito. They added two more versions that sub guac for nacho cheese (Supreme) or chipotle sauce (Chipotle), making three total burritos with fries.
Native to San Diego, the Cali burrito typically comes loaded with guac, meat, cheese, salsa, and plenty of crispy spuds. Taco Bell's version, called the California Loaded Fries Burrito, hits all of those marks, opting for ground beef as the protein of choice and forgoing regular shredded cheese for nacho cheese and sour cream. Currently, you can only find them as a test item at locations in Charleston, West Virginia. They're priced at $1.99 apiece, and are also available in a $5 box with a Nacho Cheese Doritos Locos Taco, a crunchy taco, and a medium drink ... You can also choose from Chipotle (the same burrito, but with creamy chipotle sauce instead of guac) and Supreme (which has neither chipotle sauce nor guac, and appears to be the basic version of the set of wraps). All three versions can be purchased in the above a la carte or in $5 box selections (FoodBeast).
The burritos are pretty cheap, so I got one of each at the Kanawha City Taco Bell to compare them all.

The most basic, the Supreme, tastes like an average beef and cheese burrito with a little extra carby spud inside.

The main California burrito with the guac gets a little mush for my liking, but it's fine.

The Chipotle was my favorite - the nice little spice of the sauce gives some bite to the density of the fries.

So, overall, they're fine. Have you tried them yet?
