True, but the Salsa Verde would be perfect.

I honestly didn't taste the Dorito at all in the 1st one. It just tasted like a taco to me.

So it's like the same damm 39 cent taco as the ones they usually sell, but with a bit of orange sprinkles on the shell for a buck and a half more... and it's a huge hit?

Damm people are stupid, top notch real tacos at a place like Robertos are 2 bucks, Carnitas, Asada, Lengua, whatever you want

By this time next year the tray and box will be made of Dorito as well, and they'll have a deal cut with local EMS to make sure at least one IV bag is warm, creamy nacho "cheese"

taco bell tacos are not 39 cents... give that up. that was a campaign about 8 years ago. the doritos locos taco runs about 1,19 with the regular being 99 cents. supreme 1.39.

they gave me an extra loco shell by accident and it had about 1/5th the salt/flavor of an actual Dorito,

Your point has merit in any part of the country without taco trucks. Really, it does. Taco Bell makes very tasty food and it's comparatively cheap. There are innumerable Mexican restaurants around here and very few of them can match the taste of lowly Taco Bell and they all cost more. Only in a proper taco truck can the price/performance ratio of Taco Bell be exceeded. (if it has some punny name, like "Mexican Sweet" or "Lettuce Make You Tacos", it's not a proper taco truck, it's a hipster truck. DO NOT BE FOOLED)

I tried a Doritos Locos taco one time, just to say I had tried one. They're too... busy. Too many different flavors, and not all of them complimentary to each other. It was a normal taco bell taco in a giant, folded round dorito. My overall impression was "meh."

2012-06-19 07:20:40 AM
I could barely taste the Dorito flavor in the new shell, so not worth the money for the "upgrade." I did however notice that after one bite the Dorito shell broke into about 15 pieces, making it a handheld taco salad. There's a reason they come in the fancy card-stock holder.

New flavors? I'll try one of each, but I'm guessing they'll be just as bland and fragile.

I feel that I'm justifiably contemptuous of people getting excited about anything Taco Bell makes considering that 12% of their beef includes:

No their beef contains various parts of the cow. Those are seasonings and preservatives that make up the seasoned mix that ends up in the final product. The same stuff is likely to be found in the ground beef mix in any "authentic" place you might go.
 
2012-06-19 07:31:38 AM
I don't like Doritos that much to begin with. I certainly don't want that interfering with the flavor of my taco. So, unless someone tricks me into it, I doubt I will ever try one of those.

It's my understanding that allergies are usually caused by certain proteins interacting improperly with the immune system. Having MORE ingredients isn't going to affect an allergic reaction.
That's why you see people with hay, milk, peanut, strawberry, etc allergies. Those are simple things w/ only 1 ingredient.
You never hear "oh lets go to DelTaco instead, I'm allergic to Taco Bell's burritos".

Say what you want about it being unhealthy, junk food, or not authentic-- it was still one of the best tacos I have ever eaten (and yes I have had real tacos several times). I ordered only one and wished for at least two more. You have take Taco Bell for what is -- Tex-Mex Fast Food. It doesn't claim to be authentic. If I want the real taco experience I go straight to my local Mexican taco trucks and order in Spanish. Sometimes I think it is easier for people to criticize rather than enjoy the experience.
BTW- About freaking time they got together with Doritos and made these tacos. Brilliant move for both companies in my opinion.

Experienced tacos at the Texas State Fair last year. My Michigan palate has not been the same since. In a good way. Tacos at a decent local tex-mex joint give me a sad now (though I'd still order their seafood quesadilla.) Taco Hell tacos have, in turn, become unimaginable.

Not the quesadillas, though. Can't really go wrong with those.

Generally speaking I don't eat meat unless I knew said meat while it was alive.

Seriously.

Every year, I go pick out a cow, lamb, and pig over at a farm nearby. I specify I want mine fed grass only and I get updates about once a month on how they are progressing sort of like if I had adopted it...except that instead of adopting it, I'm gonna eat it. Why do I ask for the updates you ask? Because then I can track its growth rate to ensure the farmer is not bulking it up on corn 2-3 months before slaughter.

When its time to do the deed I go over there and watch so I can verify hanging weight. Then I take it over to a butcher and get the whole thing cut to order.

You know what makes a good farking taco? Paper shaved roundeye steak. Marinate it overnight in a puree of salt, pepper, sugar, jalepeno, habenero, garlic, cilantro, cumin, oregano and olive oil.

Throw it on the grill. Slap it in either some some nice homemade tortas or if you dig the gluten, grilled flatbread. Serve with a heavily limed fresh salsa and a few crumbles of Penella.

typical taco bell/fast food thread, i see
plenty of folks saying "authentic is much better...taco trucks...88%beef..."

i know most of you saying these things are either trolls or stupid. you're talking shiat about $1 - $2 fast food tacos/burritos. they're very tasty, inexpensive, quick, and portable. it's not sit-down restaurant fare.

it's not advertised as authentic anything, either, so why bother even comparing? if you really want to rag on such things, start another olive garden thread. they DO advertise as authentic tuscan cuisine, charge $10 - $20 a plate, yet taste about the same as a $3 frozen entree and add in some good bread & salad. you can most definitely find better much closer to authentic freshly made italian food in my area for cheaper!

untaken_name: mc_madness: Taco Bell is the best Mexican cuisine on earth. Amazing quality for the price.

Your point has merit in any part of the country without taco trucks. Really, it does. Taco Bell makes very tasty food and it's comparatively cheap. There are innumerable Mexican restaurants around here and very few of them can match the taste of lowly Taco Bell and they all cost more. Only in a proper taco truck can the price/performance ratio of Taco Bell be exceeded. (if it has some punny name, like "Mexican Sweet" or "Lettuce Make You Tacos", it's not a proper taco truck, it's a hipster truck. DO NOT BE FOOLED)


The local taco truck in our town (called Tacos Mexico) did enough business to build a building and start a real restaurant. They still have the truck sitting outside, and they do events with it from time to time. Steak tacos for a buck. Best in town, and they are three blocks from my house.

Water, Seasoning [Isolated Oat Product, Salt, Chili Pepper, Onion Powder, Tomato Powder, Oats (Wheat), Soy Lecithin, Sugar, Spices, Maltodextrin, Soybean Oil (Anti-dusting Agent), Garlic Powder, Autolyzed Yeast Extract, Citric Acid, Caramel Color, Cocoa Powder (Processed With Alkali), Silicon Dioxide, Natural Flavors, Yeast, Modified Corn Starch, Natural Smoke Flavor], Salt, Sodium Phosphates.

bungle_jr: typical taco bell/fast food thread, i see
plenty of folks saying "authentic is much better...taco trucks...88%beef..."

i know most of you saying these things are either trolls or stupid. you're talking shiat about $1 - $2 fast food tacos/burritos. they're very tasty, inexpensive, quick, and portable. it's not sit-down restaurant fare.


I can pick up tacos at my local beaner market for $1.40 each, the corn tortillas are grilled right in front of me, and they're packed with way more actual meat than Taco Bell's tacos. You can get your choice of about 12-15 different fillings at any given time, like barbacoa, desebrada, bistec, carnitas, etc. Oh, and their fresh salsa verde is AWESOME.

:shrug: To each his own, sure, but when it comes to a choice between crappy fast food tacos and the real thing for a negligible difference in price? Who wouldn't choose the real thing?

Doritos tacos are basically the same as their regular tacos when it comes to their level of unhealthiness. We're not fatties for eating Doritos tacos, we're fatties for going to Taco Bell at all!

/ate there last week
//no Doritos locos for me


i see plenty of super skinny people, and super in-shape people, pigging out at tb. the simple act of eating any particular type of food at any particular restaurant does not make someone fat.

i AM fat, and while a good amount of it IS from such places, it's not their fault...it's mine for eating far too much of it while not exercising. i've lost about 40 lb over the last 9 months and have not cut out any foods/restaurants that i was already frequenting...i got smaller portions and increased my exercise.

Last night I had a hankering for some Mexican (style) food. Bought 2lbs of ground chuck. Seasoned with Adobo, ground cumin, five crushed minced cloves of fresh garlic, pepper, chili powder, onion powder and salt. Then I took one can of cream of chicken soup (not the fat free kind) and mixed it up with sharp cheddar and pepper jack cheese and melted it all together with a can of green chilies. Fried up some flour tortillas, slapped on some re-fried beans, meat, cheese sauce, sour cream and some hot sauce. Yucking fummy!!!! Can't wait to get home from work and have left-overs.

Whatever happened to that 35% beef claim? I can't find any evidence that it's false other than Taco Bell themselves bombing the country with ad campaigns claiming it was 88%. I'm sure they've changed the percentage by now, but was there any truth to the original 35% claim?

Your point has merit in any part of the country without taco trucks. Really, it does. Taco Bell makes very tasty food and it's comparatively cheap. There are innumerable Mexican restaurants around here and very few of them can match the taste of lowly Taco Bell and they all cost more. Only in a proper taco truck can the price/performance ratio of Taco Bell be exceeded. (if it has some punny name, like "Mexican Sweet" or "Lettuce Make You Tacos", it's not a proper taco truck, it's a hipster truck. DO NOT BE FOOLED)

Wow...I'm glad someone else said this (I certainly do not want to incur the wrath of FARK® for chrissakes), but it IS true, sorry. Much like my surprise while working in Texas when I discovered that "Authentic" Tex-Mex tastes pretty damn bland compared to the Mexican we get in Ohio. Also true....sorry.


Don't confuse Tex Mex with Mexican.

Actually, Mexican is kind of bland. By far the best variation is New Mexican. After eating good New Mexican food id't tough to settle for any other kind.

there was never any truth to the 35% claim. it was bullshiat anti-fastfood hype, mostly spread on the interwebs

88% sounds low, but if you make tacos with ground beef at home you're probably doing around the same...because that 12% includes water along with the seasonings, and i and a lot of other folks use water to simmer in the seasonings.

as for the longtime popular "grade f" beef claims, etc...there's really no such thing. they use ground beef. there can be ground beef from many parts of the cow, but it's all still muscle from bovines

1) true. i didn't claim it's not

2) maybe, maybe not. a lot of families, mine included, DO indeed use powder (those packets of taco seasoning on the grocery store shelves for about $0.50) instead of actual vegetables. my wife and my step-daughter are extremely picky eaters, and that is a quick simple meal that they'll eat. i'm not much of a veggie eater either, but they are FAR less likely to eat them than i am

Oh, definitely, but much of what we think of as "Mexican" in the US is really Southwest. While much of it has roots in Mexican cooking, and was even developed by Mexican Americans, the flavors are different than those south of the border. Obviously the available ingredients vary so much that a lot of the dishes couldn't have been developed in Mexico proper.

Yes, but a lot of the crap that passes for Mexican in the States isn't authentic from any region of Mexico. There's some Tex-Mex bleedover (like corn tortillas fried crispy to make taco shells), especially in the northern states, but the regional cuisines in fact vary rather widely. Which makes claims like "Mexican food is just filled tortillas in different forms" from various people especially galling.

I incur the wrath of FARK® on a daily basis just for telling the truth, so no worries. I'm not saying that you can't possibly find better Mexican (or tex-mex) in Texas than Taco Bell, what I'm saying is that if you go to a random tex-mex or mexican restaurant in Texas, where I live, you will most likely pay more for food that isn't as tasty as Taco Bell food. For the people who said "you can find better mexican". Sure, of course you can. But you can find a Taco Bell a HELL of a lot quicker, and it's most likely going to be cheaper, too.

A) since when is 12% = a quarter.
B) a good portion of that 12% is gonna equal water.

you're looking at maybe 5% seasoning, just like anywhere else.

Maltodextrin is a sweetener. Silicon dioxide occurs naturally in food, and it provides the silicon without which we would die since silicon does not occur in food EXCEPT AS silicon dioxide. 12% is nowhere close to a quarter. You are completely full of crap.

I dunno. I don't like to support hippy fru fru granolaculture either, but I'm not eating that shiat.

Generally speaking I don't eat meat unless I knew said meat while it was alive.

Seriously.

Every year, I go pick out a cow, lamb, and pig over at a farm nearby. I specify I want mine fed grass only and I get updates about once a month on how they are progressing sort of like if I had adopted it...except that instead of adopting it, I'm gonna eat it. Why do I ask for the updates you ask? Because then I can track its growth rate to ensure the farmer is not bulking it up on corn 2-3 months before slaughter.

When its time to do the deed I go over there and watch so I can verify hanging weight. Then I take it over to a butcher and get the whole thing cut to order.

You know what makes a good farking taco? Paper shaved roundeye steak. Marinate it overnight in a puree of salt, pepper, sugar, jalepeno, habenero, garlic, cilantro, cumin, oregano and olive oil.

Throw it on the grill. Slap it in either some some nice homemade tortas or if you dig the gluten, grilled flatbread. Serve with a heavily limed fresh salsa and a few crumbles of Penella.

I go to the grocery and buy lean meat as I need it.

It tastes fine, I don't eat pounds of it every day, and wouldn't you know it? I'm healthy.

/and not a snob


ehhh. Its less snobby than you think. My cost for beef is $2.49 a lb when I buy the whole cow. Cost a far amount up front, but its vacuum sealed and it lasts me for a year.

Also, its worth the few cents more per lb. (about an additional $.09) to have your cow processed locally. Most of the bad shiat that happens to beef happens in mass processing plants, not in the hands of a skilled butcher.

No, apparently this is where idiots like yourself don't realize people with different ethnic backgrounds don't digest certain foods properly. Not to mention most cases of fast food sickness come from the fact that all their restaurants are dirty disgusting pigsties.

Sometimes Taco Bell gives me stomach trouble; sometimes it doesn't. My guess is it's tied to how many days it's been since the kitchen crew's last mandatory handwashing.

yeah, this. i don't remember ever seeing $0.39 tacos at taco bell, and i've been going there for close to 25 years. i think even when they had the "fiesta menu" in the mid- to late-90s the fiesta size tacos cost more than that...and those were like 1/2 size tacos.

/csb: one time my friend and i went to tb and he ordered one of each item from the fiesta menu...think it was 13 items, around $6 or $7. he may have left behind an item or 2, but that's a LOT of food

Prevailing Wind: InfamousBLT: Prevailing Wind: Vertdang: OH! And the "all natural" nutters. Preaching ON and ON and ON about how "healthy" they're eating.

Makes me want to give them Arsenic. It's "all natural" too... see how you like it


I dunno. I don't like to support hippy fru fru granolaculture either, but I'm not eating that shiat.

Generally speaking I don't eat meat unless I knew said meat while it was alive.

Seriously.

Every year, I go pick out a cow, lamb, and pig over at a farm nearby. I specify I want mine fed grass only and I get updates about once a month on how they are progressing sort of like if I had adopted it...except that instead of adopting it, I'm gonna eat it. Why do I ask for the updates you ask? Because then I can track its growth rate to ensure the farmer is not bulking it up on corn 2-3 months before slaughter.

When its time to do the deed I go over there and watch so I can verify hanging weight. Then I take it over to a butcher and get the whole thing cut to order.

You know what makes a good farking taco? Paper shaved roundeye steak. Marinate it overnight in a puree of salt, pepper, sugar, jalepeno, habenero, garlic, cilantro, cumin, oregano and olive oil.

Throw it on the grill. Slap it in either some some nice homemade tortas or if you dig the gluten, grilled flatbread. Serve with a heavily limed fresh salsa and a few crumbles of Penella.

I go to the grocery and buy lean meat as I need it.

It tastes fine, I don't eat pounds of it every day, and wouldn't you know it? I'm healthy.

/and not a snob

ehhh. Its less snobby than you think. My cost for beef is $2.49 a lb when I buy the whole cow. Cost a far amount up front, but its vacuum sealed and it lasts me for a year.

Also, its worth the few cents more per lb. (about an additional $.09) to have your cow processed locally. Most of the bad shiat that happens to beef happens in mass processing plants, not in the hands of a skilled butcher.


How much does it cost you to store the whole cow though in freezer space and energy costs?

I agree it's probably healthier, and it miiiight be a little bit safer...but I'm not eating my ground beef rare, because I'm not an idiot. If I get it from the store, its getting cooked through. Steaks are an exception to this but if I'm buying a steak I don't get the crappy steaks, I get the nicer steaks.

Also, unrelated to your post, I must say the amount of OMG TACO BELL IS GOING TO KILL YOU WITH MALTODEXTRIN in this thread is absolutely hilarious.

Guys, news flash: Your body is a very complex piece of machinery, and a reputable establishment such as Taco Bell is not going to be purposely putting anything harmful in their food. I'm not saying TBell is high quality...it isn't. But they aren't putting cancer or autism or teh ghey in their food, because that would be bad for business (and because regulations tell them they can't).

88% beef vs 12% filler really isn't bad either, if you consider most of that filler is water (which actually makes it taste better, otherwise it would be dry and nasty) and the rest of it is stuff to improve the taste and/or texture (the oats and stuff? Guarantee that's not just "filler" to decrease costs, it probably improves the texture as well).

Seriously...get a grip on reality here. Millions of people eat TBell around the world daily, and yet none of them die, because lo and behold the food is safe. Its not what I would call healthy, but (as with all things) in moderation it's not going to hurt you. Go eat a taco or two, don't buy a whole goddamn box of tacos and then blame TBell for being unhealthy.

Fry some thin cut steak (diezmillo is best) in a little bit of oil until browned. Remove from pan. In pan' sautee a sliced onion, bell peppers, a couple jalapenos, garlic and a bouillion cube. Slice meat; throw in pan with several chopped potatoes and tomatoes. Cover. Cook on medium until potato is cooked through. Eat with tortillas, crema and salt.
You're welcome.

That's murder on your digestive system and sure to cause problems in most people. The same thing happens with every other fast food out there and a lot of other foods as well. Eat Taco Bell in the middle of the day and most people have no problems with it unless they have a problem with beans.



No, people get sick from fast food for 2 reasons. Bad hygiene from the restaurant or allergic to something. Not everyone knows they might be allergic to soy, nor would they expect it to be in their meat, for example.

Good Christ you're an excellent troll. You pull shiat out of your ass, state it like it's an unequivocal FACT and then wander off when people call you on it. That's good stuff. I like the cut of your jib.

If you were actually as smart as you think you are, hell I'd vote for you for president.

You must have lived a really boring life if you've never had the joy of late night drunken runs for food that you knew was going to destroy your stomach the next morning.

As usual you're changing the subject like all the FarkTrolls do.

Some people get upset stomachs from eating fast food no matter what time of day they eat.

I'm sure that's true. What's equally true is that a lot of people have problems with certain foods depending on when they eat them. I just ate a ham and cheese sandwich and I'll have no problems. If I had eaten it late tonight, just before bed, trust me, I'd regret it. It's not uncommon for people to have problems digesting certain foods if eaten shortly before bed. Adding in a stomach full of alcohol only adds to the problems.



That's a whole different issue not relevant to the topic we are supposed to be debating.

You aren't supposed to eat anything at least 3-4 hours before bed in the first place.

I'm in my 40's and still fall victim to it from time to time. I try planning things so I'm nice and full long before the end of the evening, but there are times when the urges are too strong to resist. About a month ago, I rode my bike through the Taco Bell drive through at 3am, drunk off my ass. It was the most delicious meal I've ever had.


Motorcycle or Bicycle?

Because I've always figured I'd end up being that 40 year old drunk going through the drive thru at 2am riding a bicycle.

You do realize that, while that is a great rule to have in general, most people don't follow it? The midnight snack is a stereotype for a reason, and taco bell is the ultimate midnight snack that's readily available for most people. On top of the fact that many will succumb to food coma post-taco bell ingestion.

So trying to say that because you aren't supposed to means everyone doesn't is flat insanity. I, and a GREAT many people I know, eat taco bell without getting the atomic diarrhea all the time. And I don't doubt that the local taco bells here do quite poorly on their inspections.

In the end it boils down to what your stomach is used to processing. If I try an all vegetarian diet I will not get off the shiatter for 2 weeks, at least. Yet I can eat taco bell, mcdonalds, fat t-bone steaks, pizza, etc all day every day with nary a problem in my digestive system.

So your subjective experience has no meaning in the context of why does taco bell make people shiat. It's a combination of factors, not just the 2 you point out. Hell the 2 you point out I would say are probably not even to blame for 75% of the digestive issues caused by taco bell. Chain restaurants don't get any passes on their health inspections. Around here they're held to a FAR higher standard. As the chain restaurants often times appear far more clean than the local joints in every way possible(bathrooms, dining areas, kitchens, staff, all of it).

You didn't finish your story. When you scour the online dating sites looking for sex, are you able to find it regularly?

I've had pretty good success myself with a specific site. It drives my parents nuts that I'm still single, but this last year or so, I've had more trim than a bonsai tree. Why settle?

If I even have one cup of beans from there on the way home then I can literally ride the rest of the way powered by the thrust of the constant stream of diarrhea shooting out my rear end. Equal and opposite reactions and stuff. My only problem is getting home while the stream is still flowing. But that's why I keep my pool empty because that sucker's gonna get refilled on those evenings.

I'm not talking about people who get it "all the time" that wasn't my point. I was just giving examples on why you would get sick eating fast food. Many people get the Chipotle shiats, that's also mainly from dirty restaurants.

Every time some fast food story pops up people complain about how it's not as good as some local place or how you could make better at home or various other bs that completely ignores the fact that it's a fast food chain restaurant. The priorities are cheap, tasty, quick, and consistent between locations. Your disappointment that they aren't gourmet or authentic or whatever is a problem with your expectations, not the restaurant.

Multiple posters have told you that you're wrong, accept it and move on.

Have you considered changing your name?



Because I really care what uneducated people think on the internet of topics they have no idea about. When your work place fails a health inspection horribly but gets a re-do because it's a big name, you know something is wrong.

And my name fits me just fine, just like yours. Only someone after 9 beers would post like you.

Sorry to interrupt this huge pissing match with some on topic ramblings...

My personal favorite at Taco Bell is the Crunch Wrap Supreme. Easy to hold, doesnt fall apart like a hard taco, isnt as soft as a soft taco.. and its full of the same basic ingredients as most of their menu.

kenshin5435 had it right. Taco Sal is the BOMB! Being from South Texas, I've come to the realization that pretty much anything with cheddar is Tex-Mex. I used to like it, but after living in New Mexico for almost 5 years has given me a better perspective of Mexican food. And I'm not just talking about the Mexican food in Arizona and Southern California either. They are all great, and when I went to South Texas this past Christmas, he Mexican food there actually made me sick. everything is so greasy, but if you're local, you're used to it. No wonder south Texas is so fat.

The only tacos that I have had that were better than Taco Bell's are Lucy's shrimp tacos in Akumal Mexico. Worth the trip down there just for them.

Actually, Mexican is kind of bland. By far the best variation is New Mexican. After eating good New Mexican food id't tough to settle for any other kind.


Oh, this, ever so much this.

I nearly wept when I last went to Albuquerque only to find that Garduno's had shut down.

You can get those in any store, at least in the midwest. I just bought a bag the other day at Kroger.

We will have to call that an East Coast fail. I have not seen them in anything bigger than the "Big Grab" bag in many years, and I have looked while both drunk and sober.


I had a friend buy a large bag of Chili Cheese Fritos yesterday. I live in WV so they are on the East Coast. Have faith you'll find them.
