Yes, you read that right, spicy pop rocks.
Four Taco Bell locations in Orange County have started a test marketing of what is called the Firecracker Burrito. The burrito comes in two styles, “cheesy” and “spicy”, and comes with a white packet of “Cayenne Popping Crystals.” Though the main ingredients are pretty standard with rice, nacho cheese, sour cream, beef, and red tortilla strips, those “Cayenne Popping Crystals” are meant to be added as a topping and according to social media are spicy and sweet and pop in your mouth like the Pop Rocks of your childhood.
