Want to try Taco Bell's new Quesalupa? Tell Toledo

Taco Bell's latest we-totally-know-what-drunk-food-you-dream-about creation is the Quesalupa

The Taco Bell fast-food mad scientists behind the Doritos Loco Tacos and the Quesarito have created their next we-totally-know-what-drunk-food-you-dream-about creation. It's called the Quesalupa.

This Chalupa-quesadilla hybrid has a pepper Jack cheese-stuffed flaky shell filled with ground beef, cheddar cheese, lettuce, tomato and reduced-fat sour cream. 

Before you run out the door to get one, know Taco Bell is testing the Quesalupa only in the Toledo, Ohio, area. But if you're a die-hard Taco Bell fan who has to know what it tastes like now, YouTube star and food reviewer Daymon "Daym Drops" Patterson is here to help. 

In a recent video, seen above, Patterson reviews the Quesalupa while he eats it in his car. This will be one of the most entertaining things you watch all day. 

According to Patterson, who calls lettuce and tomato "crunchy water and red ring of death," the shell is light, fluffy and crispy around the edges. 

"It has that butter flavor man," Patterson says in the video. "Taco Bell, you trying to sprinkle a little bit of butter love on this shell? This thing tastes like buttery heaven." 

Well, there you have it. A sprinkle of butter love. 

Taco Bell says if you tweet using #Quesalupa, to let Toledo know you want it, then maybe, just maybe, the rest of us can have it. And Taco Bell will have a trending hashtag. Everybody wins. 

Pretty sure I invented the Doritos taco shell when I was five. Follow me on Twitter @Jenn_Harris_
