I have a confession: Like most Americans, I sometimes eat fast food. It’s my secret shame. Should I be ashamed? Well, they do call it “junk” food for a reason. And Taco Bell is the definitive junk food. It’s cheap, it’s nasty, and it’s AMAZING.
“I did not see THAT coming”
Taco Bell has a whole menu full of disgusting yet amazing food choices, but I almost always go back to soft tacos. I’m sure the crunchy tacos are pretty good too, but after a single bite they crumble into dust, so I’ve never been able to finish one.
Most restaurants brag about how their foods are made of the freshest and best ingredients. Taco Bell makes no such claim. Hell, I’m not sure if you can call them ingredients. They’re more like… innards. It’s not too different from alchemy: You take a bunch of worthless parts and put them together to make gold.
Delicious, delicious gold
Taco Bell Soft Tacos are just great. They aren’t a classy food choice, but they’re so tasty that I could easily eat 10 at a time. Taco Bell seems to recognize this, which is why they offer the 10 pack Grande Meals. Hooray for obesity!
A special mention has to be made about the Taco Bell sauce. It’s such an important part of the Taco Bell experience. It’s hard to describe the taste of the sauce… it’s like, salty red water. Yummy, salty, red water. For whatever reason, it makes soft tacos go from “meh” to “OMYGODIT’STHEBESTTHINGEVER!”
Final verdict: I acknowledge that Taco Bell soft tacos are basically rolled-up garbage. But they’re still delicious and amazing.
