Duh! of the day: Taco Bell Meat not Really Meat

by the Left Coast Rebel

10-15 years ago I used to eat a lot of Taco Bell. I would go bay fishing with a friend, work up a serious appetite and hit up the local Taco Bell to recharge. My stomach could handle it then, it tasted great and I didn't have today's 'trivial' concerns too, like cholesterol, waistline measurements and waking up in the morning without a stomachache.

But I never, ever, ever, pretended to think -- even back then -- that Taco Bell tacos and otherwise actually had real meat in them.

Today's news proves it, I have been vindicated! I wonder when the commie-moonbats in California will win multi-million dollar judgements because of this revelation?

Taco Bell don't do meat:

(Time)The Alabaman law firm Beasley, Allen, Crow, Methvin, Portis & Miles filed a lawsuit on Friday on behalf of Amanda Obney, a Californian customer of Taco Bell. Ms Obney doesn't want cash damages but demands that Taco Bell be more honest in its advertising practices.

In a study conducted by the law firm, it was found that Taco Bell's "meat mixture", which it dubs "seasoned beef" contained less than 35 % beef. If these figures are correct, the product would fail to meet minimum requirements, set by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, to be labeled as "beef". The other 65% of the "meat" is made up of water, soy lecithin, maltodextrin, silicon dioxide, anti-dusting agent and modified corn starch (amongst other ingredients more suited to a test tube than a taco).

Hmm, water, soy lecithin, maltodextrin, silicon dioxide, anti-dusting agent and modified corn starch...sounds like "meat" to me.

Albertos, Jilbertos, Alibertos, Alandrobertos, Angelo's "Burgers" and other So-Cal Mexican fast food outlets -- your number may just be up because when you say 'beef' we know that it means 'perro'.



  1. So, that's what all that cr*p was that I was so disproportionately adding into the beef when I was working there 26 years ago. My supervisor was right, I didn't want to know.
