Inspired by the flavors of Korean barbecue, 7-Eleven is putting a new, Asian-fusion spin on its taquitos. The Korean BBQ Taquito features crispy flour tortillas filled with a juicy, all-white meat chicken tossed in a sweet but tangy Korean barbecue sauce and is wrapped in a crispy shell.
The Korean BBQ Taquito is available for a limited-time-only at participating 7-Eleven stores. It’s packed with savory flavors like soy sauce, garlic, onion, toasted sesame oil, a hint of brown sugar, ginger and red pepper that deliver the traditional, sweet Korean barbecue 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,” said Robin Murphy, 7-Eleven product director of fresh food. “The Korean BBQ Taquito is just the latest in new flavors 7-Eleven is introducing to excite our customers’ taste buds. Adding more great taquito flavors gives our customers the variety and versatility they want from meals, any time of day. Plus, our current three-for-$3 taquito special makes 7-Eleven the perfect destination to pick up a snack to share and savor with friends.”
For a limited time, members of 7Rewards will earn 200 bonus points with each purchase of a Korean BBQ Taquito. 7Rewards members can enjoy three taquitos for just $3, and that includes mixing and matching customers’ choice of the classics — Monterey Jack Chicken, Jalapeño Cream Cheese, Steak and Cheese, Buffalo Chicken, and Taco and Cheese — with the limited-time-only Korean BBQ Taquito.
Customers can even have the new Korean BBQ Taquitos — along with traditional fall favorites such as 7-Eleven’s Pumpkin Spice Latte — delivered to their homes, the pumpkin patch or any other fall activity they’re taking part in with 7-Eleven delivery through the 7NOW delivery app.
