Why say no when you can say yes? : taco bell, mild sauce. Image Credit: Flickr| torbakhopper
Taco Bell is generous, and not just because they’ll give you six days’ worth of calories for about nine bucks. They’re generous because if you ask them for hot sauce, they’ll give you a huge handful of packets. They’re good people.
But their reckless sauce distribution strategy backfired earlier this month. A woman went through the Taco Bell drive-thru in South Euclid, Ohio and asked for some mild sauce.
Unfortunately, the store was totally out and only had the FIRE sauce left.
And the woman was so angry that she wouldn’t move out of the drive-thru line until they either gave her a 50% discount or found her some damn mild sauce.
The employees wound up calling the cops and they diffused the situation before it could escalate and got the woman to leave. She said she’d be back the next day to talk to the manager, but we don’t know if she followed through.

In case you haven’t heard, a new Taco Bell in Las Vegas has a WEDDING CHAPEL inside, and they’re running a contest where some couple will win a free dream wedding there. At Taco Bell. Who could POSSIBLY have that dream, right?
Um . . . this woman. A woman named Diane Nguyen wanted her entry in the contest to stand out, so she got a bunch of unused taco and burrito wrappers from a Taco Bell . . . and made herself a WEDDING DRESS out of them.
She says she wanted to get married at Taco Bell because, quote, “It has been there through the years, from the after school runs, to late meals after work or a night of partying.”
Taco Bell is celebrating Cinco de Mayo today by giving out FREE TACOS this morning.
But they aren’t normal tacos . . . they’re special new breakfast tacos with a biscuit shell and sausage and egg inside. You know, just like they serve on the streets of Reynosa? Not!
But somehow it feels appropriate that America’s least authentic Mexican food chain is celebrating Cinco de Mayo by serving something THIS inauthentic. And hey . . . FREE.
You can get one from 7:00 A.M. to 11:00 A.M. There’s a limit of one per customer . . . although you probably could run from Taco Bell to Taco Bell getting one every time.
For at least a decade now, America’s state fairs have done a tremendous job making insane fried food innovations. And we’re about to find out what happens when their inventions go mainstream.
Taco Bell just started testing a new breakfast item . . . and it’s CRAZY: They’re donut holes filled with a sweet, milk-flavored cream icing . . . and covered in crushed-up CAP’N CRUNCH. Cap’n Crunch Berries, to be specific.
They’re called ‘Cap’n Crunch Delights,’ and they’re being tested in Bakersfield, California. Technically they’re an item on the breakfast menu . . . but they’re available all day long.
For now, Taco Bell is only testing them out in Bakersfield. There’s no word on if or when they could roll out to the rest of the country.
Taco Bell had insane success when they integrated Doritos into their world, and made the Doritos Locos Tacos.
But maybe other companies misinterpreted that success, and thought it meant adding Doritos to ANYTHING would increase sales. Because this sounds NASTY.
Mountain Dew was just spotted testing out a Doritos-flavored SODA.
A student at Kent State University in Ohio posted a photo online from campus, where Mountain Dew set up a table and was serving little samples of an orange soda in cups called “Mountain Dew Dewitos.”
He says, quote, “It honestly wasn’t that disgusting. It tasted like orange [soda] with a Doritos aftertaste. It tasted like straight Doritos afterwards though.”
For now, the flavor is just being tested, so there’s no guarantee it will ever hit the market . . . I guess it depends on how many people agree with this guy and give it the glowing review of “not that disgusting.”
