Taco Bell, in its Costa Rica locations, has teamed up with Barcel USA, the maker of Takis, to offer a Takis Burrito, reported Daniel Kline of thestreet.com. “The chain that created the Doritos Locos Taco has a new snack chip collaboration that could create its own craze,” said Kline.

And, Chick-fil-A announced it is bringing back its Mango Passion Sunjoy, along with three new tropical flavors: Mango Passion Lemonade, Mango Passion Iced Tea and Mango Passion Frosted Lemonade.

“Customers loved the Mango Passion flavor when it was on our menu in 2020, so we are thrilled to bring it back with even more flavor offerings for guests to enjoy,” said Allison Duncan, director, menu and packaging. “We’re seeing a growing demand for cold and iced beverages from consumers throughout the year, with recent enthusiasm for our watermelon mint and white peach beverages, as well as our new peppermint beverages this winter. We’re excited to surprise guests with bright new flavors that will redefine our seasonal beverages!”
