Taco Bell - Chicken Cantina Burrito

Those shits at Taco Bell screw us!  We order Veggie Cantina Burritos and they give us the chicken version.  We eat it anyway.  We are joined by Alex and Nathan for a Burrito foursome.  Ben searches his vegetarian soul and decides throwing the burro away is worse than eating it.  His concessions are legion this episode.  Nathan, long-time-fan-bq-virgin, holds his own with aplomb.  Turns out he is something of (read: not really) a Taco Bell expert.  Our apologies for not coming up with a better burrito for his visit to Cruces.  Alex is offended by this food.  Offended in the taste buds and the culture.  Right in the culture!  But he is surprised he didn't hate it.  His is a tortured soul.  Daniel surprises Nathan and Alex with extra Doritos Locos Tacos.  Alex's offendedness increases by volumes.  All in all a pretty mediocre burrito for something that's supposed to be Taco Bell's new freshmaker.  Also, this one, like the last is contaminated by meats and thus does not count toward the Veggie Trek total.

Ingredients: "Experience our new citrus-herb marinated chicken, cilantro rice, flavorful black beans, guacamole made from real Hass avocados, pico de gallo prepared fresh daily, roasted corn & pepper salsa and a creamy cilantro dressing, all wrapped in a warm flour tortilla. Also available in Steak or Veggie." Crooked fuckers!

Ben - Pringles flavor cliff.  Eating a whole tube of Pringles in one sitting, and thinking that that was like 1000 calories of bullshit.
Daniel - Dyson vacuum cleaner, it's neat and shiny but it's still just a vacuum cleaner, who gives a shit.
Alex - Shame, for my enjoyment of this burrito.  It was a decent mixture of ingredients but I had low expectations so...
Nathan - Alex's t-shirt, it says 'meh' which is exactly how I feel.
