It started with this commercial:
played ad nauseam. Until finally I noticed and thought, “Hmm, a stuffed nacho? That sounds kinda good. I think I want to try it.”
Only $1.29? I can afford to share the deliciousness.
Attempt number one. I pulled up to the drive thru window and ordered.
“I’m sorry,” came the reply, “we are all out of our ingredients to make this until tomorrow.” This occurred about 4:00pm.
Fine. I backed out. I really wanted a Stuft Nacho so I’d be back. And I didn’t want to suffer TBS (Taco Bell Syndrome) twice. Plus, I’m too smart to fall for the old bait and switch. I went to Taco Time instead and spent $15 for dinner.
Attempt number two happened two days later at five pm with the same results. Luckily, I was able to back out again. I spent another $15 at Wendy’s for dinner.
This quest for the $1.29 nacho was going to bankrupt me.
How does a place that makes tacos run out of ingredients during suppertime? The nachos are made of meat, cheese, and all the stuff that should be found in a place with the word taco in the title. How does a place like that run out of ingredients for its main industry?
I went to work lamenting my situation. A co-worker took pity on me and stopped at Taco Bell while she was at lunch at 11:00am. And? And? Success on attempt number three.
Do I recommend it? Sure. If you can get one.
