In July of 2009, the Volcano Taco has returned and is part of the permanent menu per the RGM Briefing for August 2009.
Red Taco ShellEdit
One of the most prominent design features of Volcano Taco is its red crunchy taco shell. To date, it is the only Taco Bell product to utilize an alternative-colored taco shell, other than the Black Jack Taco (featuring a black shell) and the Doritos Locos Taco (featuring an orange Dorito-colored shell). Speculation has raged over whether the Crunchy Red Strips found in items such as the Big Taste Taco originate from the same red-tortilla source material as the Volcano Taco shell.
AdvertisingEditVolcano Taco has been billed in Taco Bell commercials as possibly "The spiciest taco ever." Volcano Taco has also been included in an incarnation of the Big Bell Box Meal, as well as the Why Pay More!? Value Menu.
The Volcano Double Decker Taco features a flour tortilla with beans with a Volcano Taco inside.
