It was only a matter if time. Taco Bell's "beef" is pretty obviously made from other substances. It's pretty grotesque.

I used to eat a taco like once every year or so as a guilty pleasure, but last time the "beef" looked and tasted so much like seasoned wet cardboard that I decided it went on my "Never Again" list.

Maybe I'm gross, but I love Taco Bell. It is disheartening to see this story, and I hope they start making their beef more "beefy," but I still love it. I guess it is a good thing we don't eat there often though. I will always prefer homemade tacos, but now and then I like to get their Taco Supreme or Burrito Supreme.

It looks like the truth will come out. I'm sure Taco Bell isn't the healthiest place to eat, but it looks like it isn't as bad as the suit said either. Someone is always getting disgruntled over something. I heard where another lady got burned over something careless just this week. We can't legislate SANITY! OR COMMON SENSE!

I must be gross to. I like Taco Bell on occasions.
We shouldn't be surprised by the lawsuit. Or the beef contents. If it is beef. You get what you pay for.

If Taco Bell is the flavor of the week. Maybe people should take some responsibility for their own meals. Taco Bell doesn't deliver it to your door. You picked it!
Stay home and make my dinner!

While I agree that they should not be misleading us, they are not the first to do it. It's nothing new. I eat Taco Bell on occasion but I have never done so under the impression that it is healthy stuff. What it is is cheap and filling. As for me if I want real nutrition I will make it myself.
