Myth Busted!
For years we heard a rumor that Taco Bell makes their Cinnamon Twists by deep frying rotini noodles. That turns out to not be true.

It is true that the pre-cooked cinnamon twists resemble dried spiral pasta. However, the dough is different (and you definitely can't deep fry dried rotini pasta at home and expect it to be edible!).

One thing that's not a myth is how good our copycat Taco bell recipe is. Give it a try this weekend!
