Every one of those are questionable or on face value inedible. Except for the Doritos taco. Pronounced excellent (for Taco Bell food}. 

I used to get these huge, at least 1 lb. bean burritos, loaded with green sauce and cheese for 49 cents (just realized there is no cents key on a modern keyboard). Nowadays, they're less than half the size, much less. And if you complain, regardless of the corporate policy to customer satisfaction, the local staff will make you regret it with small comments.

It sure seems like the new trend in junk food is just to cram more types of junk food together. Except in Japan, which continues to be weird


/I know, put a twinkie on either side of a hot dog, tie the whole thing together with fried onion strings, dunk the whole thing in nacho cheese, then a chocolate fountain, then top with bacon. Add ranch on the side for dipping.

I tried those Dorito tacos, and they are not bad, at least in the fast-food world.

Just about all of those look good and are something I would eat. Only a couple of exceptions. The ghost pepper thing, cause there's only so much spicy I can take. And the cheese on top of the bun burger. I mean, seriously? What the hell? That actually upsets me. I'm currently far more angry than is appropriate over this. What's the point of that? It completely ruins the use of the bun to hold the burger in your hand for no goddamn reason.

The commercial for it on this page shows a dude holding it like a normal burger.

Presumably, afterward, he had to wipe his hands on a Philippine Handwash Ladyboy.

I was actually so upset by this that I searched for more information, half hoping that it wasn't even real. But I found this article, which quotes a KFC Marketing Manager saying
"That's the biggest misconception about the burger, that it's sticky and greasy," Magdato told ANC. "You can eat it like a regular burger."

Which I think may even make it worse. Because it looks sticky and greasy, so the quality of the cheese in question that is somehow magically dry to the touch while looking like it looks concerns me. So either it's sticky and greasy and a complete slap in the face to the concept of sandwiches or it's just some sort of crazy cheese that appears to have more in common with plastic than the already lower quality cheeses used by most fast food establishments.

I remember just 10 years ago the Chili Cheese burritos were under a dollar, and twice the size, and GOOD even if they looked horrible; they were like those old-fashioned pizza commercials, you could have contests with how long you could stretch the cheese. Then they took them off the menu (at least in this region) for a few years, and brought them back as watery slop that cost twice as much. Basically, "new" Wendy's chili in a tortilla.

There is so much wrong with your post, I can't even begin to start. I do think you meant it that way.
I love Taco Bell. It was definitely better years ago, but it is what it is. What it is not is Mexican food, and that's OK.

Yes, the best mexican food I ever had was a place where grandma was making the tortillas by hand as they were needed and there were no fajitas on the menu. Chili Verde FTW.

Bacon Sundae = hard to believe it's not a photoshop troll. The taco bell Doritos commercials made me feel sickly just seeing them. While many love their Taco Bell, i'm one of those weirdos who don't cherish mega-ass blasting torrential diaherrea, so there's that.

Just remember, if they weren't selling, they'd be dropped from the menu like a hot potato.

The damn purpose of a taco shell is to keep the disgusting crap your eating off your hand and in a delicious crunchy bundle. Doritos cover your hand in disgusting crap. A Doritos taco shell RUINS THE POINT OF A DAMN TACO SHELL.

The Saudi cheeseburger pizza looks interesting.

The Burger King bacon sundae is nothing more then a caramel sundae with a couple of pieces of bacon stuck in the top.

The Doritos tacos aren't that good, I don't know why people rave about them.

Taco Bell also got rid of the only sauce that imparted even a modicum of flavor: fire roasted. I settle for fire now, which is about a 2 on the heat index.

/my opinion is probably vastly different after 2:30am

so many bolded and capitalized words! calm down, mikey! sounds like you're just bitter because your gluten malfunction keeps you from enjoying taco bell!

calling doritos' orange sticky cheesy powdery substance "disgusting crap"? while i agree that turning your hands neon orange is a nuisance, it's tasty, not disgusting.

it's kinda made a come-back.

i don't recall exactly how the story went, but apparently a farker supposedly tried to pay for his taco bell food with a $2 bill and, iirc, got arrested for attempting to use counterfeit money
