Perhaps looking to offer a finer dining experience, Taco Bell is toasting its fans in Canada with the release of limited-edition Taco Bell Jalapeño Noir wine as an accompaniment to a returning cheesy favourite – the Toasted Cheesy Chalupa (Toasted Cheddar Chalupa in the US).
Priced at $25 CAD per bottle ($19 USD), Jalapeño Noir is a limited-edition red wine made by Queenston Mile Vineyard in Ontario, Canada especially for Taco Bell Canada.
The thinking behind the promotion is that cheese and wine naturally pair well together, and both get better with age. Enter the Toasted Cheesy Chalupa, which itself features six-month aged sharp cheddar cheese toasted directly onto the chalupa shell to create a crispy blanket of flavor that complements the wine’s notes of wild strawberry, cherry and beetroot. It is then filled with seasoned beef, shredded lettuce, diced tomatoes, grated cheddar cheese and reduced fat sour cream.
Limited-edition Jalapeño Noir will be available to purchase at Tacobell.ca and at select Taco Bell locations through Uber Eats in Ontario, Canada starting September 16, 2020 while supplies last.
