Trader Joe’s latest snack is basically like a bag full of those small pieces and they’re so popular, some stores are already selling out.
It’s the chain’s most successful product launch ever.
Move over, Doritos Locos tacos: Taco Bell’s Nacho Fries have snatched the title of the most successful new menu item launch in the chain’s history,.
Since their launch on January 25, Taco Bell has sold 53 million orders of the fries, which are coated with a “bold Mexican seasoning” and served with a side of nacho cheese sauce for dipping. The company tells NRN that they’re seeing the fries — which are $1, or 49 cents when tacked on to another menu item — included in one out of every three orders.
Fry fans rejoice! Taco Bell rolling out spicy fries for just $1
The rumors are true. Taco Bell's new french fries are crispy and spicy and they come with nacho cheese sauce.And while the menu is chock-full of filling Mexican-American favorites like burritos, Gorditos, quesadillas and more, there's been one fast food staple that's been noticeable absent from Taco Bell's menu — until now.

Eater NY critic Robert Sietsemashortly after they launched in January, and was unimpressed, writing, “The sauce seems more chemical than culinary, and has little discernible taste ... The outside [of the fries] was fairly crisp, while the inside was more like instant mashed potatoes.”
