    The devil went down to Georgia, but it looks like Charlie Daniels wont be heading for the border anytime soon. The singer tweeted at Taco Bell about one of its commercials Monday night and issued the fast-food chain a warning via Twitter. The Illuminati is not a frivolous subject, the Devil Went Down to Georgia singer tweeted. Daniels, who is not shy about his conservative politics, apparently got his Chalupas in a twist over Taco Bells Belluminati ad campaign hawking its dollar menu. The campaign uses conspiracy language and imagery to reveal the powerful connection between the dollar and Taco...

    From hair gel-like beef to rehydrated ingredients, order these Mexican-style dishes at your own risk. Sorry to break it to you, but the odds of finding a fresh, wholesome meal at Taco Bell is about as likely as running into a unicorn on your driveway. Sure, some of their dishes are high-protein and low in fat, but thats where the good news ends. The vast majority of the food is drenched with bone-weakening sodium and artery-clogging saturated fats. And until sometime next year, much of the meat will continue to be spiked with artificial preservatives and additives. Taco Bells employees...
  • How Mexico said no mas to Taco Bell: report

    The "wildly inauthentic" names for their dishes is just one of the reasons that restaurant chain, Taco Bell, can't seem to find purchase in Mexico. The first Taco Bells in Mexico closed down fewer than two years "and the chain retreated back across the border," according to the piece, which offers "a history of Taco Bells failed attempts to open locations in Mexico." A second foray was equally unsuccessful. The piece is an interesting look at what happens when a U.S. company tries to bring its Americanized versions of a cuisine to that food's homeland. "Today, the idea of a...
  • A Meal Deadlier Than Cyanide

    In the old days, when fishermen caught pufferfish, chances are they would be thrown back into the sea. After all, pufferfish, from the order Tetraodontiformes, are known to be poisonous to humans as they contain tetrodotoxin, a substance toxic enough to kill a person in a few hours when ingested in amounts of as little as 25mg. In addition to this, there is no known antidote to this toxin, which is considered even deadlier to humans than cyanide. Those days are gone, as some enterprising fishermen have decided that filleted pufferfish can be sold to the unwary. Filleted pufferfish is...

    Get ready, Toronto A "toilet-themed dessert bar" is headed to Canada. The aptly named Poop Caf Dessert Bar is slated to open in mid-August in Toronto's Koreatown, according to the Toronto Star. Menu items will include chocolate soft-serve, pudding, and traditional Asian desserts like patbingsoo (shaved ice with red beans and various other toppings). Per the Star, "All of the poo-ticular items available at the caf will be brown, formed like a stool and served in toilet-shaped dishes." What a world. Owner Lien Nguyen says she's "trying to make poop cute," as evidenced by the restaurant's poo-themed murals accompanied with...

He woke from the coma on April 3, after a full 48 days of lying unconscious in a hospital bed. As he slowly opened his eyes, he saw his closest friends and family members sitting anxiously by his side, waiting for him to speak his first words. You would...

    Back in September, a small number of Taco Bell customers were introduced to a new concept: a taco shell made of fried chicken, used to make what was then dubbed the Naked Crispy Chicken Taco. It was the Tex-Mex chains response to KFCs Double Down, a sandwich that uses fried chicken fillets for buns. This creation was offered only as a small test in Bakersfield, California. It later made its way to restaurants in Kansas City in mid-April. And its not over yet. Taco Bell told BuzzFeed News that the product renamed the Naked Chicken Chalupa following the successful...

    How can abortion advocates call abortion a complex, emotional decision when they also argue that its nothing more than a medical procedure? The question is hard to avoid after watching a new pro-abortion short film by BuzzFeedYellow contributor Ali Vingiano. The 8-minute film Unplanned is a fictional account that explores the complex emotions of an unplanned pregnancy and stars Vingiano, according to the website. The film shows the young woman pacing around after a pregnancy test reveals that she is pregnant. Her pregnancy is the result of her first one-night stand with a guy who she met at a bar....

    A lot of drivers in Albuquerque's North Valley have seen a woman holding a sign saying "killing me" that is pointed at a Taco Bell under construction, and the woman's dead serious about it. She even painted her back fence, which faces the project, with the words, "Taco B Is Killing Me." "It's a war zone. There are explosions. There are bombs going off. I can't even describe it," said Kathy Wiley, who isn't fed up with the food at Taco Bell, but rather the construction. The construction on the building is happening on 4th Street, north of Griegos.

    Taco Bell has fired Benjamin Golden, a senior marketing manager who was caught on video physically assaulting an Uber driver in the Los Angeles area on Oct. 30. In a three-and-a-half-minute clip—which has accrued more than 400,000 YouTube views—Golden appears to be too intoxicated to reveal his destination to his driver, Edward Caban. Caban eventually pulled over into a parking lot and told the 32-year-old marketer to get out of the car, which Golden initially refused to do before punching and slapping the driver while also grabbing his hair. Golden, a resident of Newport Beach, Calif., got out of the...
