“Vile And Amazing”: Fans Of Jack In The Box Tacos Defend Their Undying Devotion

More Than 150 People Were Sick From Bacteria In Refried Beans At Mighty Taco

Bacteria in refried beans sold at a regional taco chain has been blamed for gastrointestinal illness in around 150 customers, and now state officials have confirmed the pathogen to blame and the food that it was in.

It causes diarrhea or vomiting, and has a short incubation period: you can start barfing within half an hour. [More]

How Does Taco Bell Turn Everything, Including Fried Chicken, Into Taco Shells?

Last fall, we began hearing reports that Taco Bell was testing taco shells made from fried chicken, because that’s an actual thing that people would definitely eat.

Exotic SpaghettiO Flavors Render Recent Shrink Rayage Less Logical

Exotic SpaghettiO Flavors Render Recent Shrink Rayage Less Logical

We were under the impression that when SpaghettiOs Shrink Rayed their standard-size cans to 14 ounces across all flavors to celebrate the product’s 50th birthday, this was done to harmonize the package size across the whole brand. Plain pasta in tomato-ish sauce, sliced hot dogs, meatballs: across the board, they would all be 14 ounces. That made sense. Then we saw the pizza flavor. [More]

Taco Bell Abruptly Closes Its Upscale ‘American-Inspired’ Taco Restaurant

Last year, Taco Bell opened a new restaurant in southern California called U.S. Taco.

Taco Bell Might Be Trying That Whole “Chips As A Taco Shell” Thing Again, This Time With Fritos

Taco Bell Might Be Trying That Whole “Chips As A Taco Shell” Thing Again, This Time With Fritos

As the saying goes, when at first you succeed at feeding people taco fillings inside a shell made from a popular brand of chips, try it again and see if you can get more people to buy your food. At least, that must be a motto at Taco Bell, which could be following the success of the Doritos Locos line of taco fare with a new Fritos shell.
