Taco Bell will soon sell you chicken nuggets with cheese sauce

Taco Bell is getting into the nugget game, but don't you dare call them nuggets.

A few months ago, Taco Bell unleashed the Naked Chicken Chalupa, which was basically a piece of deep fried chicken used as a taco shell. For some reason, it didn't really catch on, and was taken off the menu after about a month. To fix your deep-fried chicken cravings, Taco Bell is now releasing Naked Chicken Chips, which is basically the shell from the Naked Chicken Chalupa in chip form.

Call them chips all you'd like, but these are basically triangle-shaped chicken nuggets, and we approve, because they come with a side of Taco Bell's cheese sauce.

The nuggets chips are marinated all-white-meat chicken covered with "bold Mexican spices and seasoning" and paired with its Nacho Cheese dipping sauce. Customers will be able to purchase them as a 6-piece for $1.99, a 12-piece for $2.99, or in a combo with a Burrito Supreme, Crunchy Taco and medium drink for $5.

The nuggets chips will be available starting May 11, but only for a limited time. Hopefully these will last a little longer than the Naked Chicken menu items that came before them.
