Free Tacos at Taco Bell -- Hurry to Get Your Fake Meat!

taco bellAs someone who always thinks outside the bun, I was quite upset to learn that Taco Bell's taco meat wasn't really meat after all. It was more "taco filling" with 36% beef and 64% gross. 

Since it's not really meat, it might explain why Taco Bell is able to give away 10 million tacos, for free! None of those pesky meat prices will affect the bottom line. In what they're calling the "World's Largest Taco Giveaway on Facebook," the Bell is handing out coupons for free tacos to anyone who "likes" them.

Paying fans to "like" them again after the non-meat PR nightmare? I electronically give it a thumbs up.

And now I have a free taco coupon. That was easy!

I'll have one taco, please, with lettuce, tomato, beef, wheat oats, soy lecithin, maltodextrin, anti-dusting agent, autolyzed yeast extract, modified corn starch, sodium phosphate, and "Isolated Oat Product."

Mmmhmm. Add in two packets of Fire Sauce and a medium Coke and life is good.

Bottom line for me is that the only crime Taco Bell committed was making those fillers taste so meat-like. That is for sure black magic and I'm going to need answers. Could I sprinkle those fillers of an English muffin and instantly get meatloaf? Amazing.

Are you going to eat a Taco Bell taco just because it's free?
