    Just a money saving tip for everybody out there. If you go to Chipotle today after 3 PM dressed in a Halloween costume you can get burrito, bowl, salad, or order of tacos for just $3 each. If you can't make it to Chipotle today, you can go to HERE to score a free (BOGO deal) Chipotle meal good until Nov. 30. BTW, I never did figure out the game but it only took less than a minute to play and I still got my BOGO deal which I downloaded to my cellphone.

    Chipotle is adding chorizo to its menu in yet another move intended to get people back in stores following an E. coli outbreak last year. The chain says the topping will be available in select cities including New York and San Diego starting Wednesday. It expects to introduce the chicken-and-pork sausage option nationally in the fall. Earlier this week, Chipotle also said it plans to launch a loyalty program for the summer that will reward customers with free meals for frequent visits. The moves are part of the chain's push to recover after a series of food scares last year...

    The E. coli outbreaks at Chipotle Mexican Grill restaurants in the United States appear to be over, but investigators have been unable to trace the cause of the sickness, federal authorities said on Monday. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said they had investigated two outbreaks that occurred last year: one in 11 states that sickened 55 people and another that sickened five people in three states. Twenty-two people were admitted to hospitals. There were no deaths.

From Forbes: The company found it could pass off a fast-food menu stacked with high-calorie, sodium-rich options as higher quality and more nutritious because the meals were made with locally grown, genetic engineering-free ingredients. And to set the tone for the kind of New Age-y image the company wanted, Chipotle adopted slogans like, “We source...

    BOSTON (AP) — Boston College said the number of students reporting gastrointestinal symptoms after eating at a Chipotle this weekend has climbed to 80. On Monday, the school had said 30 students, including members of its men's basketball team, had been sickened.

That outbreak has sickened 52 people in nine states, with the most recent illness starting on November 13. Boston College says all students...

    Chipotle claims they have stopped serving food from genetically modified organisms (GMOs). What are the health risks from eating genetically modified food? There aren’t any. Twenty-five years of scientific studies have shown no evidence of harm from the use of GM crops. A recent report from the European Union found that ‘the main conclusion to be drawn from the efforts of more than 130 research projects, covering a period of more than 25 years of research and involving more than 500 independent research groups, is that biotechnology, and in particular GMOs, are not more risky to consume than conventional plant...

    NEW YORK (CNNMoney) - When Americans line up for salad, you know there must be something special about it. That's exactly what's happening at the hot new restaurant chain Sweetgreen. It is already being dubbed the "next Chipotle." Sweetgreen was founded in 2007 by three Georgetown University friends who had a simple vision: make healthy food yummy, affordable and fun. "Healthy food shouldn't just be for the top 1%," Jonathan Neman, one of the co-founders, told CNNMoney. He studied abroad in Australia and was frustrated when he returned to the U.S. and felt his affordable meal options were limited. Just...

    In a first for a major restaurant chain, Chipotle Mexican Grill on Monday will begin serving only food that is free of genetically engineered ingredients. “This is another step toward the visions we have of changing the way people think about and eat fast food,” said Steve Ells, founder and co-chief executive of Chipotle. “Just because food is served fast doesn’t mean it has to be made with cheap raw ingredients, highly processed with preservatives and fillers and stabilizers and artificial colors and flavors.” In 2013, Chipotle was the first restaurant chain to indicate which items contained genetically modified organisms,...

This headline was written by people who have no conception of what is and isn't historical. SNIP Hillary going to a Chipotle counter and saying, "I'll have a chicken bowl with a side of guacamole," is not historic. SNIP
