The Taco Bell Crunchwrap Supreme is, in the words of Taco Bell, engineered "for maximum portability." In truth, their short-lived "Back Pocket Chalupa" was more portable, but also more tragic.

MacKenzie: It looks like a frisbee. Maybe that's what the portability is about.

Robert: They need to make one in boomerang form, for people who don't want to share.

Mike: You know, its octagonal shape says "stop," but I'm going ahead with this anyway.

Eva thinks about all the wonderful places she could take this incredibly portable food.

Ian: If they really want to make it portable, it needs a cupholder.

Peter: And little meat wheels.

Eva: I bought one of those arm pouches so I could carry my Crunchwrap while jogging.

[The verdict: It tastes like all other Taco Bell food and is in a different shape.]
