For Whom the Taco Bell Doesn’t Toll

June 27, 2014

What’s that smell? Just Taco Bell.

I wouldn’t feed Taco Bell to a dog. Personally, I would rather pull off strips of my own flesh – without anesthesia – and feed that to a dog as opposed to feeding him Taco Bell. I know it would be healthier and more nutritious.

And speaking of nutrition: how about the new Quesarito? The Quesarito is some bizarre food hybrid that mixes a quesadilla and a burrito and tops it with sour cream and special rice and a yellow cheese sauce that looks like it was scooped up from a pan in a dysentery ward. The concoction boasts 650 calories with about half of those calories coming from fat. By my math (which I admit is frequently faulty even on a good day), putting aside the sprinking of trans fat in the thing, about 36% of those fat calories are from saturated fat. High in carbohydrates and sugar (who needs sugar on a whatever the hell a Quesarito is?) with a whopping 60 mg of cholesterol and enough sodium to fill an ocean, I can only hope that this unhealthy jumble of digestive distress comes in a wrapping that carries a warning similar to what’s on a pack of cigarettes.

The unhealthy and emetic properties of Taco Bell aside, I give them credit for having some fun commercials, and the Quesarito commercial is another fun one.

Here it is, enjoy!

    Gee Michael, LOL, tell us how you REALLY feel about Taco bell! KFC has a few things that are over-the-top with fat and calories too – that “sandwich” that’s just bacon and cheese between two breaded, deep-fried pieces of chicken that would mostly only appeal to men and most woman wouldn’t ever seriously entertain ordering even though I like all the components – but in MODERATION!! Let’s not leave out McDonalds with that breakfast sandwich wrapped between two pancakes (or is it waffles?), whatever. Another thing I won’t be eating any time soon. I’ve lost almost 40 lbs. since Jan 1st by eating healthy and riding my a$$ off (literally) on my stationary bike and fast food is a distant memory to me. Sure I crave it occasionally – what food devil sitting on our shoulders doesn’t prod us now and again with thoughts of fat, sugar, and all things nutritionally sinful. I may indulge again some day but knowing what I know about the nutritional information of fast food I won’t be indulging in a Whopper/Big Mac/Teenburger/KFC with a large fries and containing more than my whole day’s allotment of calories/Points any time soon. It would now be a cheeseburger and a small fries or onion rings or hopefully a side SALAD if the angel on my other shoulder has any say in the matter if I MUST give in to craving, LOL. So far I have been a good girl for 6+ months and loving the evolving new (re-emerging former?) me that I haven’t seen for a lot of years. I’m 3 sizes smaller already and still shrinking and when I get on a plane in August those, shrinking seats will feel a whole lot roomier than they did the LAST time I flew. Some people eat to live and I used to be one of the ones that lived to eat. Now I eat better to live LONGER and I am proud of my accomplishments (and determination) so far.
