Taco Bell Informative - TV makes it look great!
If even one third of the menu items in Taco Bell would look as good as they do in TV I wouldn't dare write these words. They make sure that the image surpasses reality every time. Strongly recommend a proper anti-acid tablet an hour before venturing into Taco Bell.
When Taco Bell was relatively new I use to go a lot to eat there, the one I frequented was a few minutes from the beach and was a pleasant choice. Now, present tense, the Taco Bell of the past no longer prepares good food or even cares much one way or the other. But I keep watching TV, day after day, and sometimes a Taco Bell commercial hit the screens. They might show a succulent breast of chicken cooking slowly on the grill, it looks so good that eventually another desperate visit is required "just in case" it might turn out as good as it looks. I understand is all a game of numbers for these type of corporations. Numbers of patrons that are loyal and I am amazed to read that they are doing fairly well even today! I started doing a little research and I came across this question: Did you know Taco Bell uses "Grade D" meat? on answers.com and it finally made sense. They are cutting corners, apparently, every step of the way except their marketing efforts, and riding the wave the once propel them into the success story that the franchise became. I ate recently after several months and once again I regret to inform that besides being mediocre the acid indigestion I had to battle later was enough to dissuade me from any future "change of hearts". There are still dependable places on the fast food category (In-and-Out? always comes to mind for those on the west) and small outfits that take pride in serving the generous and highly deserving American public a superior product. Yes, it is sad but I guess all they really care about is the "bottom line" and that figure seems to be doing just fine. So what is the harm in pointing out that Taco Bell is more fattening than delicious fare?
