    Taco Bell. Is it imitation Mexican food or just imitation food?

    For some reason I know exactly what you mean by “sugar soapy” and Taco Bell is the worst offender. I think it’s the fountains they use...

    Seriously! The base ingredients are a level of crap that defies logic- the magic was in the ways they combined that crap in creative ways that worked. They took away all of the creative menu items and left the bland, basic stuff. It’s just imitation food now!

    Taco Bell is magical. I just wish the sauce packets were bigger.
    Nacho Fries are a miracle, proof that mankind is on the right path.
    Give me about 5 Taco Supremes and one of those watered down Pepsis in the foldy plastic giant cup that gives me static shocks when I drink out of it.
    OK, forget the drink Just the 5 tacos and nacho fries.

    I wish they would serve Coke ( I still drink Diet) but with their fountains, maybe it might still be funky?

    I haven’t been there in many, many years.
    I loved it when I was a high school kid.
    I better go again soon.
    I mighta’ forgot what it’s like.

    I miss the Chicken Gordita! I am glad they brought back the potato tacos, though.

    Primary mistake: Going to Taco Bell for Mexican Food. It was all downhill after that.

    You're right. I don't think of it as Mexican, it's just Taco Bell.

    This applies practically everywhere, and I swear they've made them smaller over the years! One of the things I like about Whataburger, tubs of ketchup!

    I stayed at a mid range hotel in Massachusetts for a few nights a couple weeks ago. They had a ("go fix yourself a damn") chicken Quesadilla on the menu. Looked creative and was actually very well done. All room service due to Covid.

    BUT, I asked for some hot sauce or jalapenos, etc. They delivered to me two containers of jar bought salsa! What kind of uncultured barbarian thinks salsa is hot sauce? To top it off, it wasn't even hot!

    It's like expecting to get a hamburger at McDonalds.

    That's because, last I knew, PepsiCo owned Taco Bell.

    Things certainly have changed since I wrapped burritos at the Taco Bell on East Grand River Ave at Durand Street in 1972.

    I have no hate for Taco Bell. I don't eat it often. as a little kid, I loved the 'bell burger'...

    Lots of stuff I would choose first, but it is whatit is... you get what you expect.

    There’s an obesity epidemic in America and a plethora of fast food dives serving cheap imitation food. Correlation does not prove causation but is anyone else at least suspicious?

    That and the fact that people exhibit zero self-control and make poor food choices from morning until late at night.
