The ingredients to the Mexican pizza are very basic and simple.  I wonder what they are not able to procure right now?  Strange.

Supply chain shortages most likely.  :P

They have all the ingredients to make it except for the the tostada round shell. I’m guessing that is the one they can’t procure.

Ya, I guess that’s the only one that’s not in all their other food items.  That round crispy tostada is so basic though, and no shortage of tortillas or chips at any other restaurant or grocery store.

Milk bar + Taco Bell = heaven on earth!!

https://www.thrillist.com/amphtml/news/nation/taco-bell-milk-bar-strawberry-bell-truffles

Strawberry truffles are available at the Taco Bell in tustin on red hill right next to the 5 freeway. Haven’t tried them yet but hope to get over there tomorrow. Test item that you can only get in a couple of places and somehow they picked the Taco Bell on red hill.

Well I drove all the way down there and they were sold out.  They said hopefully back again tomorrow at noon.  Bleh.

I did. They are pretty good. A really good combination of sweet and salty. Not as good as I though it would be but overall pretty good.  I would say it is the best bast food desert out there though. But there really aren’t many fast food desserts.

You should know this... almost every fast food place has some type of dessert... even if it's just a cookie. :)

I'm trying to think of which place had a really good dessert.. I'm thinking Jack's or something.

BTW: I did not know that Jack in the Box bought Del Taco until recently... maybe we will see some weird food combos at Del Taco.

The fried apple pie at Popeyes is good.  Reminds me of the fried apple pie at McDonalds when I was a kid, ahhhh the memories.

Your right. I guess when I think of dessert I think more of like a cake type item, which this truffle is.

The jack in the box mini churros are very good.
The frosty at Wendy’s I kind of view as a shake but I guess it’s a dessert.

McDonalds strawberry and cream pie is pretty tasty but it is seasonal.

Not sure what carls dessert is these days. Back in the day they had a basic cheesecake.

Now that you mention del taco, they have those caramel cheesecake bites that are pretty awesome. Not a DT so haven’t been there in a long time

Little known fact:  The original three Del Taco's are located in Barstow, CA.  When the founders sold their concept, they retained the right to keep original items on the menu and higher quality ingredients.  So if you're ever hankering for some Del Taco on your way to Vegas, maybe stop in and get a Tostada or Del Cheeseburger.  The cheese and veggies have a fresher quality than typical Del Taco served in other areas.

We know about the Barstow Del Tacos, used to always try to stop by on the way back from Vegas... but haven't driven... or even gone to Vegas.. in years.

Do they still use the slice of tomato in their taco or have they gone to diced?
