A childhood favorite may be coming to a Taco Bell near you, albeit in a much different form than you were used to.

According to, the restaurant chain is testing a new Firecracker burrito with an interesting ingredient -- Pop Rocks.

One side of the burrito includes the normal ingredients -- rice, beans, cheese and lettuce -- but customers have the option of adding a packet of cayenne-flavored Pop Rocks to the mix for a few cents more.

The company has rolled out the burrito at four locations in the Orange County, California area. It's not clear if it will be offered nationwide in the future.
