Taco Bell employee astounds TikTokers with ‘secret’ menu item

A fast food employee has quickly become a TikTok sensation with his mouthwatering (and sometimes rather bizarre) meal prep videos.

User alask55, aka the Donut King, often posts behind-the-scenes videos while he works at Taco Bell. The TikToker also seems to have a job at a donut shop and posts equally enticing content while working there as well.

One of alask55’s most popular videos is one in which he shares a “secret menu item” from Taco Bell.

In the video, alask55 instructs users on how to order the secret item as he makes it. All you have to do is order a Cheesy Gordita Crunch and replace the normal taco shell with a Doritos Locos Taco. Easy!

Many TikTokers were drooling just thinking about the cheesy combo.

“Mouth is literally watering,” one person said.


“Ima go ahead and save this,” a third person said.

However, some users pointed out that this “secret” combo actually used to be on the menu way back when as a Doritos Cheesy Gordita Crunch. They’re not wrong, but since that was only on the menu for a limited time, customers now have to specifically ask to replace the taco shell if they want to recreate the Doritos dream of days past.

I, for one, have never thought to do this, so please excuse me while I Google where the nearest Taco Bell is.
