Free taco!


OMMF

Recommended Posts

Taco Bell has announced that they will be offering a free taco to everyone in America if there is a left-field home run in tonight's Game 3 of the World Series between the St. Louis Cardinals and the Detroit Tigers.

If an eligible home run is hit the free taco will be offered on November 1, 2006 between 2 pm and 5 pm.

?We can?t think of a more fitting way to celebrate America?s Favorite Pastime than by giving fans a chance of winning America?s favorite taco,? said Bill Pearce, chief marketing officer, Taco Bell Corp. ?Since we haven?t given away a free taco in previous World Series promotions, we felt this was the perfect time to ?think outside the bun? and open up the offer to include any home run over left or left center field.?

The promotion, called "Think Outside the Park," has some detailed terms and conditions:

"Taco Bell will offer the prize identified below for ANY "home run" hit over the "left field" wall. "Left field" will be defined as the territory from straightaway center field (directly from home plate) to the left field foul pole (including the foul poll), as determined by Taco Bell in its sole discretion. For purposes of this event, an eligible "home run" is defined as a ball hit during regulation or extra innings play and is subject to the determination/designation of the official Major League Baseball scorekeeper as an official home run. If a home run is hit over the left field wall during regulation or extra innings play by any player for either team, Taco Bell will offer every person in the U.S. the opportunity to obtain one (1) free Crunchy Seasoned Beef Taco (Approximate Retail Value 77¢)."

and here's a nice little caveat for those standing in line for the free taco on November 1 (if there is a left-field home run):

"Everyone in line at a participating Taco Bell restaurant before 5:00 p.m. local time will receive a Free Taco, even if is provided after 5:00 p.m."

I'd LOVE a free taco, especially a Taco Bell taco, but this promotion damn well better extend north of the boarder or the :censored: will hit the fan!!!

It might hit something else too after you're finished with the early bird special from Taco Bell.

This is a great marketing ploy. Think about it, how many people will cash in that taco...and spend more while they are there. They will make a mint and just get a buzz talking about it. What's next? Long John Silver's free treasure chest if a Buc hits a GW fieldgoal? :D I thought the "old" America's things were baseball and apple pie though? :P

I think that is mostly regarding the beef. Back in the day, when they had the Chili CHeese Burrito all they did was add water to some sort of powdered mix to make it. THey were good though.

I once worked at taco bell, here's some 'inside' information...

-The ground beef is one grade lower than the meat they put in dog food, I don't know the specific grades, but that's what I know.

-The refried beans are just a powered substance which you add hot water to to make.

-The grilled chicken & steak are pre-cooked and in bags, they just heat them up in the boiler (like the deep fryer but with water).

As far as I know, everything else is fine, it's just the ground beef that's sub-standard.

I remember a few years ago there were two Taco Bells that were rated the two most unhealthy fast food restaruants in America, both recieving the lowest possible grades. One was in Memphis, Tennessee, and the other one was in, yep, you guessed it (well, maybe not), South Lake Tahoe, California.

Brings back memories of an italian hole in the wall i went to. I remember talking to the waitor who was a big burly man with a stone face. I asked him about the secret to the great tasting meatballs, and he replied, "You remember the rat who ratted out Big Louie? Well, enjoy.". We had a laugh, i knew he was messing with me. It was a good place, to bad it went out of business.

point is i've actually have heard stories from a contact of mine who says the mob actually used people who f'ed the mob as pizza topings. whether or not he was telling me the truth is to be seen. Of course out here who knows where half our meat comes from.

Thats just a straight out and out lie.

Human food grade ground beef will always be above dog food. Period. it simply, 100% can't happen that human food is rated worse than dog food by the FDA.

Dog food is differently rated than human consuption by what parts of the animal and what percentage of 'contaminates' (ie hair, bone, etc) are present.

I really hate this sort of "this fast food is worse than what they put in chum!" It is compelte garbage. Please stop spreading ignorance.

Sub-standard? Perhaps.

Delicious? Absolutely.

That's how I look at it. If Taco bell weren't 45 minutes from here, I'd go for a Grande Soft Taco right now. I'll just hafta wait until Friday when I go home.
