Good News For My Waistline

I'm Still PO'ed, Though

Damn Taco Bell! Damn them to hell!!!

I've got a confession to make. I eat at Taco Bell every so often. OK, I should know better, but along with Pancho's, Taco Bueno, Taco Banana and the local gatos fritos en burritos taqueria, I've just got a now-and-then yen for subpar TexMex comida.

I've had continuing problems with this Taco Bell location. Mostly they screw up orders, leaving items out, forgetting to put in sauce, etc. They "forget" that I order the $.99 Bean Burrito Especial, and give me instead the regular bean burrito. Pinche cabrones!

The last straw was last night, when they had Chili Cheese Burritos (which I ALWAYS get) on the drive-thru menu, but told me they no longer make this item.

This is a deal-breaker. I loves me some Taco Bell CCBs. Nothing like a splash of mediocre chili and rubbery cheese wrapped in a tortilla that's then blasted with live steam so it's all gooey and delicious. The CCB's reheat in the microwave extremely well, making them ideal for a late night nosh when you're up at 4 a.m. looking for porn conducting web-based epidermal variance research.

There was a website a while back fighting for the return of the CCB to all Taco Bells, but I think it's lost momentum.

Well, just so we're clear, Taco Bell... No CCB, no more $$$ spent at your stores!!!!
