The Taco Bell Chicken Chipotle Melt That Totally Missed The Point Of Melt

There are a few items at Taco Bell that you might have needed some clarification on before adding them to your regular order rotation. But, for the most part, the chain's grub is pretty easy to decipher without having to consult the employee on the other side of the drive-thru speaker. Take the Chicken Chipotle Melt. As one would expect, the under $2 fave contains chicken and chipotle sauce. And the "melt" part of the equation? "We top it all with real shredded cheddar cheese, melt it, and wrap it all up in a warm flour tortilla," the Taco Bell website explains.

Needless to say, you pretty much know what you're getting when ordering one of these bad boys. Therefore, when a Reddit user took to the Taco Bell subreddit page to share a photo of a Chicken Chipotle Melt they recently received that was only two-thirds true to its name, it's not surprising that some of their fellow fast food fans had a few things to say. The image was posted with the caption, "First time trying chicken chipotle melt." While the photo in question showed that the Redditor's meal fulfilled the chicken and chipotle sauce requirements, it totally missed the point of the melt, as the layer of shredded cheese topping the rest of the ingredients was completely uncooked. 

Reddit users reactions and how you can fix an unmelted Chicken Chipotle Melt

The Reddit user's first experience trying a Chicken Chipotle Melt is truly a tragedy, but considering that Taco Bell ranked second to last in order accuracy in QSR Magazine's drive-thru study, a mishap from the chain isn't unheard of. Still, that didn't stop other members of the eatery's subreddit page from sharing their two cents on the fiasco. A number of Redditors simply pointed out the obvious — that the handheld was, in fact, filled with unmelted cheese

Others extended an apology to the original poster for Taco Bell's blunder, while another took the opportunity to get in a little jab. "After eating this, you still haven't tried a chicken chipotle melt," they quipped. A few people encouraged the original poster to give the dish another try — though another Redditor offered a different piece of advice. "They screwed up," the user wrote. "Hit them with a bad survey, which will hit them in the wallet."

Offering feedback when your order is incorrect will not only help improve Taco Bell's service in the future, but it may also score you a coupon for your next order. However, you'll still be left with food that isn't up to par. In the case of the Reddit user's unmelted Chicken Chipotle Melt, fixing the mistake can be as simple as throwing the dish in a pan on the stove for a few minutes to get the gooey, melted cheese you desire.
