“We love adding unexpected flavor combinations to our roster, and this collaboration between Cinnamon Toast Crunch and Old El Paso pairs the most valuable players from the cereal and taco game for a one-of-a-kind format that gives taco night the sweet touchdown it deserves,” said Jenny Jonker, Old El Paso Brand Experience Manager. “The Most Valuable Taco is coming off the bench to help cereal and taco fans alike indulge in the beloved tastes and textures they count on from General Mills.”
Just in time for the Big Game, fans can find Old El Paso™ Cinnamon Toast Crunch™ Dessert Taco Shells in limited-edition boxes featuring JJ and Justin exclusively on Walmart.com starting February 7 for $3.18 while supplies last. The dessert taco shells will also be available for a limited time at retailers nationwide starting in March.
