OK, it has absolutely nothing to do with Hua Hin but Serious Eats has a great story on the rebirth of the Volcano Taco.
First introduced last September, the Volcano Taco appeared on Taco Bell’s menu for only three months. Whether it was the red crunchy taco shell (just the normal one with artificial dyes) or the spicy orange goop (which goes by “Lava Sauce”) or the limited-time-only appeal, people were into it. Really into it. When it disappeared from menus, Facebook groups formed with folks acting like it was the fast-food apocalypse—even worse than when the Crazy Gordita Crunch left us.
Thankfully, all the members of “I Refuse to Go to Taco Bell Until They Bring Back the Volcano Taco” can stop freaking out. It’s back as a permanent item, joined by the Volcano Double Beef Burrito. Both have the pretty standard taco and burrito skeleton (ground beef, shredded lettuce and cheese, sour cream) multiplied by the Lava Sauce.
The story is based on a tour of the Taco Bell HQ in Irvine, California, and they even let Erin play with their toys like the:
There’s a matching device for Guacamole. These could really liven up a Songkran party.
