Of course I had to try Taco Bell’s new Volcano Taco, or at least the Lava sauce. I’d be lax in my duties if didn’t at least try it once. So during all the running back and forth between the city and the suburbs, I stopped off at a Taco Bell and got myself a bean burrito with the lava sauce instead of the normal bean burrito sauce.
Two things come to mind:
1) I can’t say the lava sauce is any hotter than the fire sauce they already offer. In fact, it may be less hot because the cheese is cutting the bite. Sure, there’s a nice lingering burn, but it definitely didn’t make me leak smoke from my orifices or need to splash Pepsi on myself (more than I do now anyways). All in all, it wasn’t amazing, but it was a decent alternative to the normal sauces.
2) I believe that “Volcano Lava” refers to what happens to your stomach after eating the sauce. I didn’t eat again until 10:30 that night because I was convinced that the lava sauce had actually eaten through my stomach lining. If THAT is what Taco Bell wanted as an end result, this sauce is named perfectly.
