In a move unprecedented for its United States locations, certain U.S. Taco Bell restaurants have started serving french fries. Previously, only Canadian Taco Bell restaurants served french fries. Many U.S. Taco Bell consumers are surprised, and many have expressed doubt that Taco Bell can make satisfactory fries.

The idea of serving fries in U.S. locations was briefly tested out by certain Taco Bell restaurants in California, during last December.  While that experimentation created a brief splash, it was mostly forgotten, and those few who remembered it considered it a failed experiment. The recent reemergence of Taco Bell’s fries as an issue caught many people unprepared.

Taco Bell’s fries are technically referred to as “nacho fries,”  apparently due to the toppings used. Nacho fries have mostly the same toppings as the popular “nacho supreme” dish: these include beef, tomatoes, nacho cheese, and sour cream, as well as optional additions such as guacamole, jalapeno peppers, and bacon (the bean topping of the supreme is not used). Another available option is for the fries to be covered with habanero seasoning and nothing else, although this option has been deemphasized in favor of the nacho topping.

Recently, the fries surfaced in the town of Huntington, West Virginia. Local resident Justin McElroy stated that he had seen a sign reading “fries now available.”

“Nope, not eating that,” said Michael Wilson, a Math Major. “I mostly go to Taco Bell for ‘burritos’ that aren’t actually burritos. Nothing about ‘fries from Taco Bell’ sounds appealing.”
It is emphasized that the fries may appear in any place, but are most likely in a smaller, less-known town, which allows for a more controlled release. Residents of such towns are advised to remain alert.
