CBS News- The menu at Taco Bell may be a bit limited these days, with the quick-service restaurant chain warning customers that it might not be able to fulfill their current appetite hankerings.
In an apology offered in an orange banner atop its website, Taco Bell declared: "Sorry if we can't feed your current crave. Due to national ingredient shortages and delivery delays, we may be out of some items."
I KNOW SHERIFF BUT I WAS JUST TRYING TO CALM THE MASSES DOWN NOW THAT WE HAVE A CATEGORY 5 SHITSTORM HEADING OUR WAY!!!
One of the most incredible thing about Taco Bell is that they keep pumping out nothing but the hits, nothing but the hits, nothing but the motherfucking hits despite using like 6 total ingredients for their entire menu. It's crazy how many times they release a new item that is just something they had in the past except cut differently with a different spice and some extra cheese on top yet it's still feels totally new and tastes AMAZING.
However this delicious dynasty built on the strength of simplicity quickly becomes a massive weakness once you run out of even one item, let alone multiple building blocks.
More specifically, a multitude of complaints on social media pointed to a lack of beef, chicken, hot sauce and 10-inch tortillas at the Yum Brands division, which runs nearly 7,500 Taco Bells, most of them in the U.S.
What the hell man? I was told 2021 was going to be better than 2020, but this feels like more of the same. A Taco Bell menu without the most basic items isn't limited. It's nonexistent! Now I have to act like one of those paper product hoarding fuckfaces and go to my local Taco Bell to buy every Chalupa, Gordita Crunch, and Doritos Locos Taco I can get my hand on to then sell at a 500% profit on the black market. Granted that will likely only make me like an extra $3 per item, but chaos is a ladder and I plan to climb it to the very top.
I'm not sure if it's because of corona, people not wanting to work, or the supply chain (AKA everything else my dumb brain doesn't understand about shortage) but somebody needs to figure this out right now or we are going to be living in a dystopian timeline where people are eating BEAN TACOS.
If things are this bad already, how are the locals going to react when Taco Bell run out of baja, the primary ingredient of Baja Blast?
On the bright side, if these shortages keep up, the CEO of YUM will be forced to finally fulfill his destiny of combining all his edible Infinity Stones to create some of the culinary concoctions stoners have been dreaming of for years.
Yup, I'm talking about popcorn chicken, stuffed crust, and root beer floats somehow popping up on your local Taco Bell. I'm not sure how they will incorporate them into the menu but trust me it'll either be incredible or completely outrageous like the old SNL Taco Town commercial, which still may be incredible no matter how bad you feel physically and/or emotionally after eating it.
