Chipotle is reportedly testing out bacon. But will it make the food better?
According to USA TODAY, bacon is being served at Chipotle's test location in New York City and will expand to eight California locations next month. The consensus? Bacon does indeed make everything better.
"Consumers have always said 'everything tastes better with bacon,' and that is exactly what we confirmed in our New York test kitchen," Chipotle's chief marketing officer, Chris Brandt, said in a statement to USA TODAY. "We found consumers added bacon to their traditional bowls, burritos, tacos, and nachos while also enjoying new items such as the BLT quesadilla with bacon, lettuce, tomato, and cheese grilled to perfection."
There's no word yet as to whether bacon will come to Minnesota's Chipotle locations, but it sounds like bacon is a huge hit.
The test kitchen recently rolled out several other new items, including nachos and Mexican chocolate shakes.
Would you like to see bacon come to Minnesota Chipotle locations? I wouldn't care either way, but I'm more excited about the Mexican chocolate shake.
