Mountain Blue

After the recent move of putting its Frito chips in its Taco Bell burritos, PepsiCo has made another attempt at cross-pollination of its various product divisions. Since their merger into PepsiCo in the '60s, Pepsi-Cola and Frito-Lay mostly kept their business lines separate, one focusing on drinks and the other focusing on what we shall generously refer to as 'foods'. In more recent years, though, PepsiCo has also begun pushing various Dorito products into its Taco Bell selection, and even gave Taco Bell its own personal flavor of Mountain Dew (did you know there's an entire wiki just for Mountain Dew? neither did I! (appropriately for this post, there is also a Mountain Dew Blue)). Anyway, in its most recently announced monstrosity, PepsiCo is testing a Dorito-flavored version of Mountain Dew. Needless to say, reactions are mixed. Also mixed are home-made mad-science Dorito/Mountain Dew experimentations. (don't forget to turn on the audio)

"I would love one day to see 1,000 of these."

Taco Bell opens its "upscale" brand extension, U.S. Taco Co., in Huntington Beach: the first of what could be many. "It's food truck food you don't have to chase." The LA Times takes a first look. Money describes it as taking (secret) aim at foodies: "The goal is to win over entirely new customers, notably the folks who wouldn’t be caught dead in a Taco Bell, KFC, or Cinnabon." [more inside]

the history of Taco Bell's disruptive faux cheese-dusted taco

Deep Inside Taco Bell's Doritos Locos Taco In fact, the companies ended up creating a proprietary seasoner in the process, not least because for workers on the manufacturing line, the plumes of Doritos seasoning would create an almost Nacho Cheese gas chamber. [more inside]

I can’t see and I have a goiter with a goiter of its own.

Taco Bell is to food what the propeller beanie hat is to transportation: wildly insufficient, but not altogether un-enjoyable if approached with the right attitude: Will Dorito-Sheathed Tacos Be The End Of Us All? (SLGawker)

On a diet? Don't get a salad; get a burger!

Think those salads at McDonald's, Wendy's, Burger King, and Taco Bell are a good idea if you want something lighter? Turns out you're actually better off getting a double cheeseburger instead. For more info on nutritional facts about fast food, CalorieKing has a good database.

You Don't Poop Where You Eat

Taco Bell E. Coli Out break from... green onions? This is the second major outbreak of E. Coli from vegetables this year. Where does E. Coli come from? "One of the root words of the family's scientific name, "enteric", refers to the intestine, and is often used synonymously with 'fecal'."

Taco Bell Chihuahua gets kicked to the curb.

Taco Bell Chihuahua gets kicked to the curb. I'm happy and not too surprised by this. There's only so much mileage you can get out of a talking dog. Now, if I could just get the phrase "drop the chalupa" (as well as its alternate meaning, [dec 19th entry]) out of my mind....

Worried about nutrition?

Worried about nutrition? Then you should be very scared if you eat at:

Burger King

McDonalds

Taco Bell

Wendy's

Jack in the Box

Even Subway which sells its food as healthy (low fat) contains more sodium than canned soup.
