Appropriately named the ‘Mitey G’ – the limited edition release has been described by Taco Bell as “maybe the most Aussie Taco” ever, combining everything fans of the staple menu item The Cheesy G Taco know and love with the savoury spread.

“Australia’s much-loved spread, Vegemite, turns, 100 years young on October 25 – so it’s fitting that Taco Bell’s most Aussie taco yet includes one of the nation’s most iconic food brands. We’re excited to see Aussies embrace this new and unique taco that tastes like Australia,” Matt Gray, General Manager of Marketing at BEGA Group said in an official press release. 

“At Taco Bell, we’re big on food that’s crunchy, cheesy and saucy. We love big, bold flavours. Adding Vegemite to our hugely popular Cheesy G Taco just makes sense. I’d say it is the perfect way to celebrate International Taco,” Andrew Howie, Chief Marketing Officer at Taco Bell Australia added. 

Filled to the brim with beef, the Mitey G is topped with Zesty Ranch sauce and cheese and comes in a warm, cheesy flatbread on the outside of the taco shell.
