Taco Bell Boldly Moves Into New Meal Territory

Posted By on Tue, Feb 25, 2014 at 12:05 PM


After the "stoner's innovation" of FourthMeal, Taco Bell has outdone itself by inventing a new eating experience, a strange sort of Pre-LunchMeal, or maybe they'll call it FirstMeal, it hasn't really been nailed down yet. Starting March 27, customers entering a Taco Bell in the mid-morning hours will be able to order from a new and wondrous assortment of foods, from tacos that sub in a sweet waffle-pattered bread for tortillas to Crunchwraps filled with egg and bacon instead of the usual seasoned beef and nacho cheese sauce.

In response to its competitor's bold disregard of the laws of fast food dining, McDonald's sort of told AP that it is starting to consider making its breakfast menu available all day, a move which would no doubt create a rift in the mealtime continuum, creating One-and-a-HalfthMeal or Morning-But-AfternoonMeal or any number of confusing iterations.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
