St. Petersburg, Florida-- The 10 News Taste Testing Team has weighed in on its latest sampling!
The team, made up of three producers with a healthyappetite and a desire for all things delicious, started sampling with the release of Taco Bell's Nacho Cheese Doritos Locos Tacos in March of 2012.
So naturally, when the restaurant announced the release of a Cool Ranch counterpart a year later, they had to reconvene for round two!
And continuing with their Taco Bell trend, the team has taken to the restaurant's new Freezes, a frozen drink offered inPink Lemonade, Mountain Dew Baja Blast and Pina Colada flavors.
Mike Weber, our 5 p.m. producer and valuable member of the Taste Testers, sampled the Mountain Dew Baja Blast (Nutrition facts).
He said the drink was a little sweet for his taste, and added that he wouldn't pick it up for any more than it's "Happier Hour" price-one dollar.
Kip Michalak, USA Today High School Sports correspondent and second 10 News Taste Tester, sampled the Pina Colada Freeze (Nutrition facts).
According to Kip, it tasted like an authentic Pina Colada. Unlike Mike, Kip said he wouldn't mind paying over a dollar in the future.
And last but certainly not least, our 6 p.m. producer, Atish Patel, sampled the Strawberry Lemonade Freeze (Nutrition facts).
"Delicious!...I wouldn't pay more than a dollar, but it's really good."
So what do you think?! Let us know under our video on the 10 News Facebook page.
According to the Taco Bell website, you can find the Freezes for just a dollar during their "Happier Hour" between 2 and 5 p.m.
NOTE:While it seems a Taco Bell tradition has started, the 10 News Taste Testers want you to know they have big plans to break out of that "shell".
Healthier food taste tests, and those of newly released products are soon to come!
