Taco Bell Starburst Cherry Freeze
  and the Nerd Lunch Podcast Ep203

Good morning podcast listeners! I say podcast because their is no new Nosh Show this week, but I did get a chance to hang out with the Nerd Lunch Crew and Nick from Dude Foods for episode 203 : Fast Food Breakfast Draft. We try to come up with a list of five awesome items from the top ten fast food joints, and what I should have done was visit a different place every day to prep, but instead I only went to Taco Bell to try the new freeze and the CAP'N CRUNCH delights.

So I went with #TeamRed for the drink and a pair of delights on the side and I am glad I went with a pair and just the smaller sized freezer because neither was that impressive. The cherry freeze lacks cherry flavor and sweetness and focuses mainly on the bite. It was disappointing but kind of funny because when I went #TeamPink (the strawberry freeze I reviewed last year) I thought the flavor was more spot on and called them out to make a cherry version.

The cap'n crunch delights kind of smell funny and leave grease stains everywhere. I don't know why you would want these honestly. Sure, it's a dollar, and if you split it with someone then you only have to eat one of them, but I just didn't enjoy them at all. In fact, I was frustrated with them because I ate them first which then messed with the first several sips of the freeze. The good news is that the cc delights are finally being phased out.

So back to the draft. We had five items in our breakfast: 1 savory, 1 sweet, 1 spoonable, 1 drink, and 1 wild card (can you guess which of my items made a reappearance from our original fast food draft?). I don't want to ruin the surprise, but if you click the image above, you will see what I picked. Give it a listen and let me know how you think I did, or better yet, let me know what your favorite breakfast items are! (oh man, brandeating has reviews of my savory item and they are not that positive.... I knew I should have tested before picking!)

Have a good week everyone!

Freeze Verdict?  needs more flavor, less bite
