The Taco Bell Breakfast Is American Freedom And Pride In Its Best And Most Primal Expression

Were we once a nation of tinkerers that split the atom, created the phonograph, and gave Kevin Costner’s career three distinctly different eras? We were.

And yet, despite all the transistors, pneumatic tires, Roombas, and swivel chairs, the elites apparently have no room in their heart for the Waffle Taco, the most obvious object of derision in Taco Bell’s newly announced breakfast line-up.

“Gross,” they cried, in their truncated communiques. Breakfast, they libeled, would now be served by “a fast food chain heretofore known primarily for serving shredded cheese, refried beans, wilted lettuce, and horse meat in various combinations of tortilla containers.” Taco Bell breakfast “could conceivably [...]

Taco Bell Turns Doritos Into Sorta-Mexican Sorta-Food Through The Power Of Synergy

How can Taco Bell's $2 meal deal, in which one can get a burrito or taco plus a soda and a bag of Doritos for the recession-friendly sum of two (or eight, if you have to pay with change) Washingtons, exist? "The 150 million bags of Doritos it expects to sell this year will come from former parent and current supplier PepsiCo. Beverages typically cost chains pennies on the retail dollar." And then there is the delicate matter of the stuffings that fill said cheapo gorditas and cut-rate tacos, which are low-cost (and low-other things!) enough to keep other items on the menu at sub-dollar price points.
