I might have to go to Taco Bell for this. For research, of course.

If you're a business that can't sell fried chicken, you're doing something very, very wrong.

DanZero: - "It gives me the shiats"


One of the maybe two or three only things that Twitter is good for in this world is @NeilHamburger 's weekly round up of "Taco Bell gave me food poisoning" retweets.

It is incredible how many people get sick on Taco Bell across this land. Who would've ever thought that food made from hooves and offal and prepared by people who don't wash their hands after they take a sh*t would be so bad for you?

that being said, hell no. This sounds more like a KFC thig that you'll find at the KFC/Taco Bell franchises as opposed to the straight up Taco Bell.

Chicken and Waffles is a thing ... But because you fold the waffle in half doesn't make it a taco.

TB isn't real Mexican food. As a matter of fact, it gives me the shiats something fierce. Luckily I always keep some two dollar bills in my pocket for just an emergency. It's not like anyone would accept them anyway.

I always wondered why the Taco Bell/Long Johns joints didn't offer shrimp tacos. They need to leverage their brands like that.

Why bother with the waffle at all? Just go to Popeyes and have your tenders battered IN waffle batter and deep fried.

dryknife: Must be a southern Mexico dish.




That's why I always get my taco makers shipped directly from Mexico. Those farkers are talkitive and take up a lot of space but, it's worth it for the authenticity.

I'm five bowls in and I'm really hating you right now because the only way to get these is to drive 10 miles and I just don't do that after "medicating"...

A waffle filled with whipped cream and fruit, probably sold in threes.  For fark's sake.  Just stab yourself in the pancreas and put it out of its misery quickly.

Not that taco bell is high quality, but things like pooping shortly after a bean burrito is far more likely the result of not being used to the fiber from tge beans and whatever they cut their meat with than food poisoning, which is on a long delay after eating.

Taco bell is also deceptively high in calories.

People eating too much of what they aren't used to is the problem.

Taco Bell had shrimp tacos for a short time. Haven't seen them since. They were actually pretty good.
