When I was younger, Taco Bell usually followed mass alcohol consumption and was not meant to be paired with it. But 2020 has been a year of upheaval. Soooo….
Enter the new Taco Bell Wine!
And what type of wine pairs best with a taco or chalupa you ask? The Jalapeno Noir of course! (No, I am not making this up, even I am not that creative.)
Taco Bell Canada recently launched the Jalapeno Noir (produced by Canada’s Queenston Mile winery) to pair with its new Toasted Cheesy Chalupa, which is made with 6-month aged cheddar (allegedly)!
While the Toasted Cheesy Chalupa should be making its way south of the Canadian border in November, there are currently no plans for the limited edition Jalapeno Noir (can’t believe I am actually typing that) to follow.
The bottle sold for $25 Canadian (around $19 U.S. Dollars) and notice I used the past tense “sold.” That is because the new wine sold out in literally just a few minutes!
If plans change and the Jalapeno Noir wine is re-introduced and does make it to the States, Geeky Daddy will be here to let you know!
The Taco Bell menu has been going through a lot of changes recently, as many fast food restaurants have as they have been adapting their menus to be more drive-thru focused (#ThanksCOVID!).
I am most excited to try the New Dew Garita from Red Lobster!
Would you try Taco Bell branded wine if it were available in your area?
