You know that moment someone says “Let’s go get Burger King!”
Yeah, me neither. If you don’t like Taco Bell, you’re wrong. From Cinnabon delights to ooey-gooey cheesy bites; Taco Bell has it all. (And I’m not talking about just their food!) Here are four reasons why Taco Bell can replace your significant other.
#1: Free Tacos? I think yes.
In March 2001 Taco Bell painted their logo in the middle of the 40×40 foot flotation device, surrounded by target rings and ‘Free Taco Here’ painted in big purple letters. According to a spaceref article, “Free Tacos for U.S. If Mir Hits Floating Taco Bell Ocean Target” The author states, “Taco Bell is offering a free taco to everyone in the United States if the core of the Mir space station hits a floating Taco Bell target placed in the South Pacific.” If the Mir would have hit the target, coupon distribution, redemption and offer details would have been made available to consumers on the Taco Bell Web site. Taco Bell has purchased an insurance policy to cover the anticipated cost of the free taco redemption if the core of Mir would have hit the target. Sadly the Mir landed off course near Chile and America was devastated.
If your significant other wouldn’t offer everyone in America a free taco then who else will? (Totally not Taco Bell…)
#2: You can get married at the Las Vegas Taco Bell location!
Yes, you read that right. Starting August 7th, 2017, The Taco Bell location in las vegas is saying ‘I do’ to any willing lovers. All you have to do is walk up to the counter and order a wedding right off the menu. According to the official Taco Bell’s news feed article, “Save The Date” “[T]he wedding package is complete with a ceremony performed by an ordained officiant, a private reception area for up to 15 guests, custom merchandise for the bride and groom, Taco Bell-branded champagne flutes, a Taco 12 Pack, a Cinnabon Delights cake and, last but certainly not least, a sauce packet bouquet. But don’t forget a Sauce Packet bouquet is also available for the bride to use during the ceremony.”
You’ll know where to find me on my wedding day! If you ask your significant other what their dream wedding is and they don’t say Taco Bell, run and get as far away from that monster as you can.
#3: They serve breakfast… not hot dogs
One early morning before heading out to the Minnesota State Fair my dad asks us, “Who wants to get Taco Bell?!” This gained him many looks of confusion and the Taco Bell at 7 am? Is that even a thing! look. But we all reluctantly agreed and next thing you know we were getting out of the car and walking inside the nearest Taco Bell location. After staring at the newly discovered menu debating if I should trust anything breakfast wise from the fast food chain who specialize in lunch tacos. After having a mini-war with myself I finally decided to go with the classic hashbrown and the Grilled Breakfast Burrito with bacon and nacho cheese inside. sitting down and gathering the food items I was mentally preparing for the worst. (I mean nothing can be worse than a fast food chain trying to sell ‘Grilled Hot Dogs’ when they clearly already have to try in succeeding to sell burgers. *cough* Burger King *cough*) While I was slowly unwrapping the item and taking the first bite of the burrito, my mind was BLOWN. It was the best thing I have ever tasted in my fifteen years of living. My soul jumped with joy after realizing there’s a handful of other items I have yet to discover and that the item that brought me the feeling of true love only cost me one dollar.
Let’s just say, that gave me something to “taco bout” for the rest of the car ride!
#4: They don’t want you to break the bank
For just eleven George Washington’s you can get one of every item your hungry little heart desires without breaking the bank. The menu includes; Cheese Roll-Up, Shredded Chicken Mini Quesadilla, Beefy Mini Quesadilla, Cheesy Bean and Rice Burrito, Beefy Fritos Burrito, Spicy Potato Soft Taco, Spicy Tostada, Triple Layer Nachos, Cinnamon Twists, Cinnabon Delights, and the Caramel Apple Empanada. I mean cmon, who would turn down such a great offer? On top of that, they have a breakfast dollar menu which you do not want to get me started on. After comparing McDonald’s dollar menu with Taco Bell’s dollar menu the author of “Taco Bell Breathes New Life into Fast-Food Dollar Menu” states “It’s part of McDonald’s ‘Dollar Menu & More’ options, and it costs $2. To help you with the math, that’s double the price of, say, a Beefy Fritos Burrito.” This helps show that Taco Bell is staying loyal unlike McDonalds and is really sticking to the name ‘Dollar Menu’ not the ‘Let’s Say I’m a Dollar When I’m really five Menu!’.
#5: Who needs a lover when you got Taco Bell?
Here’s the thing about having a significant other, there’s basically a rule book you need to follow. If you don’t obey the rules you’ll come across as a bad guy. For example, if you get into a fight with your partner you have to apologize even though you may be in the right. If you don’t apologize you automatically look like you don’t care and your partner will get mad. You wouldn’t want that now, would you? Well, with Taco Bell you won’t have to worry about anything! Just pull up to your nearest Taco Bell location, order your favorite taco and BAM, your want for a significant other vanishes and you’re left with a warm tingle in your heart.
Who needs a boyfriend when you got Taco Bell thats what I call live mas

By this point, if I have not already convinced you that Taco Bell is better than your significant other let me just remind you of some of the select few reasons why Taco Bell is better. Not only is Taco Bell willing to give everyone in the United States of America a free taco but they also don’t want you to break your bank by spending five dollars on one item of food. Taco Bell wants you to enjoy good quality food for only one dollar and at the same time, they want you to be covered with a food item for every time of the day.
Just remember relationships are only temporary but Taco Bell is forever.
