While 2021 had less experiences for an extended period, Taco Bell started 2022 back with 4-6 week experiences and we hoped to see at least 10 experiences in 2022. As the year moved on the latter experiences appeared to be longer 6-8 week promotions.

Taco Bell is currently testing some iconic menu items with a Big Cheez-It twist.
These items are currently being tested:

So, what exactly are these items?
It might not be what you expect. The Big Cheez-It Tostada is essentially a tostada, but the tostada is a giant Cheez-it. The Big Cheez-it Crunchwrap is a Crunchwrap Supreme with a giant cheez-it in the middle.
Strawberry Bell Truffles
TUSTIN, CA/NYC AREAS
Taco Bell is testing Strawberry Truffles in partnership with the NYC-based desert company Milk Bar.
The perfect slice of cake morphed into a convenient bite, the Strawberry Bell Truffle’s vanilla cake is studded with strawberry pieces and soaked in strawberry milk. The cake is then filled with a sweet corn fudge center. The outside is coated with a sweet and slightly salty strawberry and sweet corn cake coating, studded with tiny pieces of Taco Bell’s Crunchy Taco Shell. The unique coating adds an unexpected burst of flavor and satisfying texture for a one-of-a-kind eating experience.
