Taking The Spanish Out Of Taco Bell
The Spanish rice that is...I've noticed lately that the 7-layer burrito just doesn't quite taste the same anymore. It seems to be lacking something, and overall just bland. I unrolled my burrito and discovered that instead of the traditional Spanish rice, they had replaced it with a white rice. Two things instantly crossed my mind. The first notion was that they forgot to put the seasoning and such, and the rice was just plain old white rice. But after dissecting it further, I realized that it was the cilantro white rice that they now use.
So I assumed that they were just out of the Spanish rice at the time, and merely substituted one rice with another. No big deal. Nothing too major worth fretting over. However, the next time I ordered the same item, I got the same result. Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.
Well, come to find out...they actually discontinued the Spanish rice altogether! It's bad enough they got rid of one of my all-time favorite items, the chili cheese burrito, but now they've gone too far. About the only thing left worth a darn is their cheesy gordita crunch. You lose that, and you lose me.
