Ever the innovator, Taco Bell is testing its new Volcano Chicken Chips in a few locations in the Knoxville, Tennessee area, Brand Eating reports. The “chips” aren’t really chips at all – they’re Taco Bell’s “outside-the-bun” take on chicken nuggets, shaped triangularly, like tortilla chips.
These crispy-fried chunks of white-meat chicken are served with a cup of Taco Bell’s once-departed Lava Sauce (remember the Volcano Taco?), the extra-spicy, cheese-based, super-secret sauce that disappeared in late 2015.
You can also find the “chips” inside the Volcano Chickstar – essentially a Crunchwrap with bits of fried chicken, rather than a tostada shell, providing the titular crunch.
So far, there’s no word on when – or if – they’ll be available nationwide.
