GLENN: All right. How did we miss the real news of the day? Taco Bell has introduced their new fries today.
STU: This is amazing. And we have done a disservice to these fries, as we kind of pointed out in the break.
STU: They’ve now gone through the drive-through. And we had to hear Glenn talk for however many minutes about whatever he was talking about.
GLENN: Those are —
STU: They’re a little bit cold perhaps. Considering that the room is about 58 degrees.
GLENN: They look really dark and crispy. They look perfect.
PAT: They’re very seasoned. And then in a really delicious little cheese sauce, that I’m sure is 100 percent natural cheese.
GLENN: Oh, yeah.
PAT: No chemical additives whatsoever.
STU: Trying them first without the cheese. Oh, yeah, seasoning is very good.
PAT: Oh, yeah. Yeah, not overly seasoned. A little bit of a kick to them.
GLENN: Okay. Compare them to — well, I don’t know if I agree with this anymore. I used to think that the best fries in the world are McDonald’s. I don’t anymore.
PAT: Yeah, I don’t.
GLENN: They’re kind of getting a little like cardboard. Or maybe it’s just my pallet has changed a bit. I’m not eight.
STU: They’re somewhat similar I would say to Checker’s fries. Have you guys ever been to a Checker’s before? Rallies is another one.
GLENN: A long time.
I just like them crispy on the outside. You know what I mean?
PAT: And if these were hot, these were exceptional.
STU: And I got to say that cheese sauce, man. Taco Bell —
STU: We were talking about this — border security — if you’re going to take away Taco Bell, open up the borders. I don’t care what happens to it.
GLENN: I don’t know if you know this, but Taco Bell isn’t authentic Mexican food.
PAT: What! What!
GLENN: Now, Panda Express is real authentic Chinese food.
GLENN: Taco Bell is not authentic.
STU: Right from the panda if I’m not mistaken.
GLENN: Yes, it is. It is.
STU: Look, I would give — these are solid.
PAT: I would get them.
STU: I would give them a solid rating.
PAT: I would get them.
GLENN: You would get them. Tell me the thing that you don’t get from Taco Bell.
PAT: There is no thing I don’t get from Taco Bell.
GLENN: That’s right. That’s right.
STU: Actually, the best thing for our health that has happened is Pat Unleashed, which comes after the show. Because now Pat and I can’t go to lunch right after the show, which happened a lot of times at Taco Bell and added a lot of pounds to the program.
PAT: It sure did.
STU: Now we can’t go together because he’s on the air.
STU: And we’re prepared —
GLENN: Like you don’t eat to go at 2 o’clock.
PAT: Well, of course, but we do it separately now.
STU: We’re doing it separately. Totally different.
GLENN: So you’ve cut the calorie burn of talking.
GLENN: See you tonight. 5 o’clock. The latest episode. The last episode. Clinton and Russia. And Ben Shapiro.
