Flint Nostalgia Returns: Delicious Food Back For Limited Run
There's nothing like a fast-food menu item you loved as a kid, making a return. No, I don't mean the 27th return of the McDonald's McRib or Breakfast Bagel. Not Taco Bell's Mexican Pizza (the original was way better). Not the Wendy's Pretzel Pub Burger or even the Starbuck's Eggnog Latte.
This return is nostalgic: The Taco Bell Enchirito is back now through November 30th. Taco Bell discontinued it in 2013 as a menu item. It was part of the menu since the 1970s.
What is a Taco Bell Enchirito?
Think burrito + enchilada as one item - "Enchirito." Some parts of the country might even call it a "wet burrito." Beef, beans, onion in a flour tortilla (or back in the original run "a special tortilla") covered in red sauce. Check out one of the '70s commercials featuring the item (notice it had black olives in the 1970s). You won't get the "Taco-Taco-Taco-Bell" jingle out of your head either.
Can I get an Enchirito at Taco Bell in Flint and Genesee County Michigan?
Yes. As long as it's a participating franchise... and let's be honest, why wouldn't they want to be a part of this delectable return?
When was the Taco Bell Enchirito created?
Taco Bell had the item trademarked in 1970. According to Wikipedia it originated in one of three ways.
- A high school kid may have created it in 1967
- Franchise owner Dan Jones may have created it in the early 1970s
- A franchise owner in Texas may have created it in the early 1970s
Where is the Taco Bell locations in Genesee County, MI?
You'll find around 20 locations around Genesee County, MI from Clio down to Fenton and everywhere in between.
Pro-Tip: You can try ordering the Enchirito even if it isn't on the menu. They'll have the ingredients (supply your own black olives though). Also, don't blame me if this turns out as lack-luster as the "new" Mexican Pizza.
