Taco Bell

Why did they change thier taco shells?

THEY ARE HORRIBLE NOW!!!! -- Ya know what happens to a cookie if you leave it exposed to the air too long? (It gets soggy,a bit soft) -- thats what they did to thier shells,.THEY ARENT CRUNCHY LIKE THEY USED TO BE,they are slightly,i dunno.. NOT THE SAME!!!! (And the beef tastes horrible now)



Anyone else notice this disgusting trend happening TO EVERYTHING??

Taco Bell was so much better in 1987.

I notice a trend here!
Perhaps your medication is responsible for your ever increasing dis-satisfaction with the taste of food.
As for myself, I wouldn't dine at the fast-food trough if you paid me.
Remember, in America, you get what you ask for!

In America fast-food isn't just limited to fast-food restaurants either.

Out here we call it Taco Hell. It is nasty food (at least in these parts) and they really never have a whole lot of business when you drive by any given time.

I prefer to make my own tacos at home. Man they are good

Was it orange? Taco Hell introduced a new taco "Supposedly" based on Doritos Nacho Cheese chips. Crap doesn't even taste like the aforementioned Doritos, and the shells are like soggy cardboard. Yuck!

Yet they are a huge seller. Frito Lay says when people get tired of the nacho taco they'll start introducing the other flavors. They have over one hundred that they can send to Taco Bell.

Re: Taco Bell

Similar to the "Beefy crunch burrito" they had/have. Thought it was going to have a taco-shell incorporated somehow similar to the gordita crunch, it just had some spicy fritos in it, and they tasted odd and ended up being really soggy.

That did suck, but the cheesy nacho burrito is pretty good. Something in there has some crunch to it.

Dude, stop yelling already.

I make better tacos at home. I use there ingredients:

Goya Adobo seasoning con pimienta
Goya "Sazon Goya" Con Culantro y Achiote
Korniko Chipotle seasoning
Badia Sazon Tropical
mexican oregano
comino molido (ground cumin)

(since there are several of the above, I go very easy on them, it's the touch of flavor, not the blast.)

Ground Sirloin fried and drained and processed in food processor to fine grain
Ground Pork, done just like above
a sweet spanish onion
a poblano chili or a can of green chilis
a small green bell pepper
an 8 oz can of plain tomato sauce
a can of refried beans
water
no added salt
home made hot sauce with peppers from my own garden

I prefer soft corn tortillas or large flour tortillas

filling:
very firm tomatoes
sweet onions
mild cheese (I can't eat cheese, but for others)
iceburg lettuce
pace picante or my own home made picante

mine has no pink slime since I buy the better ground meat, sirloin has flavor. Mine has pork. Mine has the best seasonings

I am hungry also my friend!!

I guess what i was trying to say in my thread here is: The shells are not as crunchy as they used to be.... (You used to bite into it and it fell apart as you ate it,now they are kinda like a bit soggy,etc .. You bite into it and it takes a little bit more pressure to break it..... I dunno



I remember the first time i got one of those kind... I hated it,i thought maybe it was just a bad batch of shells (Not fresh) but they seem to chnged how they make them FOR THE WORSE..

And the BEEF thjey use tastes like shit now also.. IT USED TO BE DELICIOUS!!



Im sorry if anyone is offended by my using caps,im trying to have what im saying stand out (Be more noticable) I am not yelling @ anyone!!

It could also be that the formula for shells was changed to comply with FDA regs. Some are premade and sit under lights to keep warm.

I bought taco shells for the Cockatiels we had. They loved taco chips, but the actual chips had salt. The shells didn't. The shells stayed crisp in the fridge for months. The chips get soggy if they sit with some kind of filling in them. I've had home made tacos get soggy if they sat in the fridge.

They had a segment on the Today Show this morning how truckers delivering food to stores, fast food places and all, are turning off their AC units in the truck to save money/gas, and more or less trashing the food inside. And the FDA does nothing! State police have taken it in their own hands.

Watch the video and listen to how long the FDA has been warned about this type of crap.

What's worse is that YOU don't care and continue to eat crappy food.

If you really cared about what you eat, you'd make it yourself with only the ingredients you want and wouldn't be complaining about the supposed quality of all the manufactured "food" you eat....

Taco Bell
Pizza Hut
Wendy's
Lipton Ice Tea mix
Mountain Dew
Chef Boyardee
Boxed Mac and Cheese
Buffets

Don't you ever eat anything home-made?

Re: Taco Bell

I too have noticed Dude's preoccupation with supposedly "bad" food he has received. You just cannot make him happy.

Dude!! ease up. Isn't there anything else that you have on your mind?

Oh wait, there was that BUG you ate half of. Er, ooops.
Sorry, that was about food as well.

And Dude, there's other websites to make complaints about restaurant foods, you know, ones where they actually matter. I'm talking Yelp!, Facebook, and even any old local restaurant review website that features your particular "bad" restaurant. Which you seem to pick out unerringly.

You know what? I'm afraid we'll never be able to make the standards you set, so I'm afraid I'm gonna have to ask you not to come in here again. The wait staff is pretty pissed at you right now, you never tip (at all!) and you've actually caused us to lose business with your constant complaints. It's just not working out, so I'm gonna have to ask you to find another
dead horse to beat.

I'm kidding Dude....
keep up with the complaints, they are very entertaining, and once in a while, you actually do address a real problem....

I remember eating at taco bell in college. usually after drinking a bunch. I preferred the soft tacos. I think I have eaten at taco bell once in the last 5 years. Down here if someone wants fast food tacos we head to taco cabana. Not sure if it is any better but at leat they sell margaritas.
