Taco Bell has been spotted testing new Seasoned Fries as well as Loaded Fries at select locations in Irvine and Bakersfield, California.

Just this week, Twitter user Matt Weiss posted a photo showing the new fries on a Taco Bell drive-thru menu board at the UCI Center in Irvine, California. According to menu board details the new fries come in two varieties: Seasoned and Loaded.
Regular Seasoned Fries at the Irvine location are selling for just 50 cents, while Seasoned Fries with Nacho Cheese Sauce are priced at 75 cents. Meanwhile, an order of Loaded Fries Supreme can be picked up for just a buck, while Loaded Fries BellGrande – featuring 2x the fries – are priced at $2.00. If prices seem low, they are. Testing is obviously in early stages and extremely limited at this time.
Seasoned Fries Taste Testing
In a Facebook post earlier this month, Patrick Henry indicated he was basically given an opportunity to test the new Seasoned Fries at a Taco Bell location in Bakersfield, California.
For his effort, which included filling out a nine-page questionnaire, Patrick was rewarded with a $5 gift card – plus a belly full of fries.
