Someone in Taco Bell’s marketing department is unclear on the concept of “losing weight,” or else just completely amoral (hence the marketing job), because the company is “sponsoring” Oklahoma City residents who have taken part in a weight loss challenge by giving away free tacos. To be fair, these “fresco crunchy tacos” are less than 200 calories each (the company says 150 calories, 8 grams of fat, but this independent analysis puts it slightly higher). But still—tacos? Free tacos to people who are trying to lose weight?
