I saw this article this morning:
https://www.cnn.com/2022/01/06/business/taco-bell-subscription/index.html
Apparently, for $10 a month, you can get one taco per day for 30 days. The article says with the subscription, you can add a crunchy taco (including their Doritos Locos tacos), spicy potato soft taco, or soft taco to your order on their mobile app.

I guess you could call it Tacos as a Service, or TaaS for short? :p

It seems funny to see a fast food chain doing something like this. I suppose it could be a deal if you go to Taco Bell often. Assuming I'd go to Taco Bell every day, $10 for 30 tacos is a good deal - but then you'd have to figure in the time and gas and wear & tear on your car to go to Taco Bell every day. I don't get fast food every day though.

I feel like $10/month just for one taco per day probably isn't enough to entice me to sign up. If it was something a little different, like a free or reduced-price meal regularly, then I might be more tempted to sign up.

Would you save money if you only went there once a week?
Probably. If you got a taco 4 times in the 30 days, that's $2.50 per taco.. Maybe depending on the item, you may or may not save money. But still, it's one taco, and I'd probably buy more items to make a more substantial meal.

Sounds like a potential public health crisis. Oh, wait, that’s already been going on for a while now.

It always amazes me that places like Taco Bell and KFC are perfectly legal yet somehow weed is some sort of moral quandary.

I think you’d have to pay me to go to Taco Bell every day for a month. Once every couple months is plenty for me. And I regret it each time.


That being said, it’s smart marketing for them. Gets people to show up. Not many people show up for a single taco without buying other stuff

Time might be less of a problem than gas

I'm not sure fast food is so bad that it should be illegal.. It's not going to kill you unless done in excess, which could be said about most things.

I'm reminded of the movie Demolition Man, where their depiction of the future seemed to be a warning of a totalitarian government. "It's been deemed that anything not good for you is bad; hence, illegal. Alcohol, caffeine, contact sports, meat.." (As a side note, Taco Bell is depicted as a high-class fancy restaurant in Demolition Man - though I've heard they changed it to Pizza Hut in other countries.)

A cardiologist, endrocrinologist, gastroenterologist, colorectal surgeon, heart surgeon, ostomy specialists and supply source, mortician, and a grave ...

...will cost a hell of a lot more than $10 per month.
I never hear anyone complaining about homemade tacos though. Are Taco Bell tacos really that much worse than homemade tacos?

No way would I eat that often at Tac-Oh, Hell! In fact, the soft taco is the only thing I will eat there, and I love Tex-Mex almost as much as authentic Mexican.

Probably lower quality meat substance. But otherwise, probably basically the same. Plenty of ways to eat unhealthily at home. Just easier and faster to do it at fast food.

Can I show up on the 30th day and get 30 tacos at once?

...

Why are you looking at me like that?
