On January 26, 2017, Taco Bell sent the fast food industry into a panic with the release of their Naked Chicken Chalupa. Putting a taco into a spicy fried chicken shell instead of a dull ass tortilla seemed like the greatest idea since sliced bread.
But on February 23, 2017, I have to report the sad news that the Naked Chicken Chalupa is on its way out. I guess it was just too ahead of its time, and people weren’t ready to accept such a radical idea. It’s kinda like when Marty McFly shredded the f*ck out of “Johnny B. Goode” at the Enchantment Under the Sea Dance and everybody was dumbfounded.
According to the Orange County Register, the Naked Chicken Chalupa will be removed from menus sometime in March. At least that gives us enough time to start stockpiling these bad boys. To hell with canned goods, all I want to snack on during the apocalypse are Naked Chicken Chalupas.
Goodnight, my sweet prince. Like the great Neil Young once said, “It’s better to burn out than to fade away.”
