DALLAS (PRWEB) October 10, 2019
On the heels of both the first day of the fall season (Sept. 23) and National Taco Day (Oct. 4), Fuzzy’s Taco Shop is bringing back its a-maize-ing Cornutopia menu and its three limited-edition items. In celebration of autumnal flavors, the laid-back taco joint combined its Baja-inspired flavors with roasted corn, a traditional fall ingredient, to create three one-of-a-kind offerings: Street Cred Corn, Corn To Be Wild Quesadillas and the Shuck It Brisket Taco. Guests can wash down these limited-time offerings with an icy-cold beverage like the brand’s famous and flavorful margaritas, always served at a chill price.
Based off last year’s glowing reviews from Fuzzy’s cult-like following, the returning menu items include Street Cred Corn, roasted corn kernels topped with Parmesan cheese, Fuzzy Dust, cilantro and roasted poblano crema for $2.99; Corn To Be Wild Quesadillas, a shredded chicken quesadilla with roasted corn, roasted poblano peppers, shredded cheese and a side of roasted poblano ranch for $7.19; and lastly, the Shuck It Brisket Taco, a shredded brisket taco with roasted corn, roasted poblano peppers and cilantro, drizzled with roasted poblano crema for $2.79.
“After receiving great guest feedback from last year’s limited-time offer, we knew we had to bring back these awesome fall-inspired foods this year,” said Laura Purser, Vice President of Marketing for Fuzzy’s Taco Shop. “Since the season is now in full swing, our pairings of corn with cheese, roasted poblanos, shredded chicken and brisket will be well-received by our guests this fall.”
Fuzzy’s fans can further elevate their “My Fuzzy’s” neighborhood joint experience by trying the three Cornutopia menu items along with the tried-and-true favorites they know and love. “Our guests are fans of big flavors and a laid-back atmosphere in which to enjoy them, all at an accessible price point,” said Michael Mabry, Chief Development Officer at Fuzzy’s. “Our three new Cornutopia items deliver on our promise to always keep bold, innovative and unique dishes part of the Fuzzy’s experience.”
