$25,000 Taco Includes a Gold-Infused Tortilla and a Salsa Made From Beans Pooped Out by a Cat

As far as I’m concerned, there’s no reason to ever pay more than a buck for a taco. So I CERTAINLY won’t be spending 25,000 times more than that.

A restaurant at the Grand Velas Los Cabos resort in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico just added a taco to their menu that costs $25,000. So what makes it that expensive?

  1. A corn tortilla infused with gold flakes.
  2. Kobe beef, rare Norwegian lobster, and caviar.
  3. Black truffle brie cheese.
  4. A salsa made out of chili peppers, expensive tequila, and civet coffee beans . . . which are coffee beans that are POOPED OUT by a little cat called a civet.
  5. And gold leaves on top.

Even with all those fancy ingredients, I still feel like they’re making GREAT margins on this thing.

But if you’re going all-in, the restaurant also sells a tequila that goes for $150,000 a bottle.

Taco Bell Is Giving Away Free Tacos For Cinco De Mayo

Taco Bell Is Giving Away Free Tacos For Cinco De Mayo

tacobelljalapeno-honey-biscuit

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.

Taco Bell is Testing Cream-Filled Donut Holes Covered in Cap’n Crunch

Taco Bell is Testing Cream-Filled Donut Holes Covered in Cap’n Crunch

2-WpJ

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.
