Today is National Taco Day . . . but in a way, isn’t EVERY day kind of National Taco Day?

The good news is that a BUNCH of big Mexican food chains are giving away free tacos today.  Except for Taco Bell . . . their Taco Day promotion is that they’re selling “gift sets” where you can pay $5 to buy four tacos for a friend.

Anyway, to keep you entertained from now until you start mainlining free tacos, here are some stats in honor of the holiday . . .

1.  More than 95% of Americans say they like tacos . . . and 71% prefer tacos over burritos.

2.  Three-quarters of us eat tacos at least once a month.

3.  And the most popular taco meats are, in order:  Carne asada . . . barbacoa . . . chicken . . . pork . . . and chorizo.  The least popular meat?  Lengua . . . also known as COW TONGUE.
