    Link: Taco Bell Counter Sues, Launches New Ad - Fret not, Taco Bell lovers. All that talk about the Bell`s meat being less than 35%? A lie. And they`re suing the liars.

    It`s such a big shock that they add stuff to the ground beef? It`s not like we expected it to be a taco filled with only beef and nothing else. It`s a taco with SOME beef in it.

    whatever is in it it wont drop sales too much and either way it gives them a dominos style ad campaign which will undoubtedly boost sales

    whatever the truth and outcome of this whole crap is taco bell is going to come out the winner so why even bother bringing it up?

    I used to work in a Taco Bell, back in the day when the lettuce and cheese was shredded on site, the beans and meat were prepared from raw ingredient, and the taco shells were fried by hand.

    I know things have changed a lot since then, lettuce and cheese come pre-shredded, the beef and beans come in boil-in bags, and the shells arrive pre-fried now.

    But the food still tastes the same, and I was highly skeptical of the claim that Taco Bell`s `seasoned beef` was only 33% meat.

    It`s not that I trust companies to not screw us, It`s that what I order there still tastes the same. I don`t care how well you season oats or soy beans, that wouldn`t taste like beef to me.

    How often do you think Taco Bell`s president`s name is mispronounced "Greg Greed"? Bottom-line: if you`re going to Taco Bell for 100% beef, you`re an idiot. You go for the faux-Mexican food deliciousness. And the oats.

    @TrivialSteve-EXACTLY! you don`t go to Taco-Bell for fine quality dining. The company bears the nickname "Taco-Hell" for a reason. We all know what we`re getting into when we decide to chow down on their food. People just need something to gripe about, apparently. (Haha, like I just realized that.)

    I`ve eaten tacos from roadside stands in Mexico. Probably old cat or aborted fetuses.

    Taco Bell is the safest taco I`ve probably every had. I don`t worry about whether there is caulking in it or not.

    Now, you take Jack-in-the-Box tacos. 2 for a dollar. That meat looks like baby poo.... I still eat it of course but I try not to look at it.

    so did they just give away their 12% secret recipe....is the "not so secret recipe" not the secret recipe and if not then their "not so secret recipe" that =(12%)is added to "Real Beef" that = (88%) plus their "secret Recipe" that = another (12%)...so Taco Bells Beef = 112% of greatness.... and if the "not so secret recipe" is the "secret recipe" they just gave it away, so why not just call it a Recipe?

    For those of you concerned about the oats. It is used as a thickener. It is a common practice in cooking. Kind of like how you add more pancake mix or flour if it is too runny.

    @taylor_stone: Cocoa powder is a commonly used item in some mexican style dishes and a lot of chilis use cocoa powder. Cocoa powder is bitter and not very good by itself. It`s not sweet like a hershey`s bar because it`s not sweetened with a ton of sugar.

    And vice versa - chili has been added to cocoa and chocolate for centuries. A dash of chili powder in hot cocoa is amazing.

    @popsiclemyk- Have you ever had Mexican food anywhere besides Taco Bell? Because I find it hard to believe that you could be comparing Taco Bell to any other Mexican food when you say it`s "awesome." I can think of one Mexican restaurant chain that is worse: Muchas Gracias in the Northwest. I would definitely rather eat at Taco Bell than Muchas Gracias.

    chili & chocolate is awesome, When making my chili, after draining the fat from my browned meat, I add 2/1 chili powder/chocolate, and let it coat the meat & roast a bit before adding the rest. Try it!

    They`re amazing. I love them, so much...

    I was pissed when they cranked the f*cking price up to $1.30.

    That said, Taco Bell is NOT real Mexican food... I`ve had real Mexican food, at a real Mexican friend of mine`s home, and I prefer Asian food. Except Tortillas. Tortillas are awesome.
