The 7-Eleven convenience store chain in the United States has added a new fusion spin on its taquitos range by introducing the Korean BBQ Taquito featuring crispy flour tortillas filled with all-white meat chicken tossed in a sweet but tangy barbecue sauce.
Promoted as “great for a quick lunch on the run or as a snack any time of day,” the product is now available for a limited time. It’s loaded with savory flavors like soy sauce, garlic, onion, toasted sesame oil, plus a hint of brown sugar, ginger and red pepper that deliver the traditional, sweet Korean BBQ taste with a hint of heat.
“We are always looking for adventurous ways to incorporate new flavors and food trends that will make 7-Eleven favorites even more crave-worthy. The Korean BBQ Taquito is just the latest in new flavors being introduced to excite our customers’ taste buds,” said Robin Murphy, the Irving, Texas-headquartered company’s product director.
