I had one of these the other day and it was pretty good. I've always wondered what it is with Taco Bell where there's a new gimmick every couple of months - some stick and some don't, but it seems like the menu should be 347 things at this point. They should biring back the frito burrito.

Anyway, ever since then I've been able to dunk.

The black taco is a long repressed, culturally relevant food source that needs its own study department in universities around the country.

Plus, if sales lag we need a program to artificially inflate said sales.

I hate when black tacos have lettuce on them and it gets stuck in your teeth.

They prolly had a bunch of red taco shells that weren't selling enough after they jacked up the price of the volcano taco. Thinking of the colors that you can make starting with red: Purple Taco, Gray Taco, Brown Taco, Black Taco, etc. They decided Black had the best marketability.

Maybe I should make a peace offering of black tacos to my neighbor.
