Taco Bell's New $1 Item Means You Won't Have to Choose Between Fries and Tacos

What’s going on?

Have a hard time deciding between fries and tacos? Soon, you won’t have to. Taco Bell has been testing seasoned French fries and a fry-stuffed burrito at some locations, and the restaurant chain is planning to add fries to the menu nationwide later this month.

On today’s show, Pat and Jeffy were thrilled to talk about this story.

“Fries, some nacho cheese, and three or four tacos,” Jeffy listed his dream order. “You’re pretty much good.”

When will fries come to my Taco Bell location?

Fries with a “bold Mexican seasoning” (according to Taco Bell’s PR) are slated to launch on every Taco Bell menu on Jan. 25. The $1 fry will come with nacho cheese for dipping. If you upgrade to a “Supreme” or “Grande” fry, you can add seasoned ground beef, pico de gallo, sour cream and other fixings.

What else should I know?

Taco Bell’s fries – or at least the $1 version – may be limited edition. The company says the $1 price point is for a limited time only but hasn’t specified when that time will run out or whether the standalone fries will still be available.

PAT: Speaking of France, in French, this is incredible news.

And I can't believe we haven't discussed it until now. Taco Bell is introducing french fries.

JEFFY: I was just thinking the same thing. I saw the ad. I was like, blah, blah, blah. Yeah, Ted Cruz could be president again. Taco Bell's fires.

PAT: What about fries at Taco Bell?

JEFFY: And it's funny that you were reminded about that, talking about France.

PAT: Uh-huh.

Because especially since french fries have nothing to do with France.

(laughter)

JEFFY: Taco Bell. Yeah, yeah, yeah, french fries. They look good.

PAT: I guess this has been speculated -- they apparently served this overseas. They haven't done it over here until soon.

JEFFY: It's coming the end of this month.

PAT: They're test marketing right now in West Virginia and California.

And they're going to bring it nationwide. Think of that. So they've already got the -- the menu. The dollar menu items arranged from breakfast Taco's to cinnamon twists. Now they're bringing in the french fries that will also come with a side of nacho cheese.

JEFFY: Yeah.

PAT: Or you can opt for the supreme, adding pico de gallo, beef, and sour cream on top. Oh, my God.

JEFFY: Maybe. Some fries. Some nacho cheese. Three or four tacos. You're pretty much good.

PAT: Is this a great time to be alive or what?

Critical Race TYRANNY: The Great Reset of Education

A virus has escaped the university labs and is super-spreading through our culture. It's called Critical Race THEORY and what used to be a fringe topic in the academic world is now a dangerous Marxist REALITY infecting our public schools where students are taught the U.S. is a "parasitic system" based on the "invasion" of "white male settlers."

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes how some teachers are being instructed to "cash in on kids' inherent empathy" in order to train them to become "activist intellectuals," starting as early as first grade.

CRT is an absolute toxin to America and Glenn warns that in just one generation the Constitution, freedom, and true equality will be totally destroyed. Yet, any opposition to the spread of this disease is shouted down as racism and bigotry. If Critical Race Theory is not already in your local school curriculum, it will be soon.

Joined by Asra Nomani, Vice President for Strategy and Investigations at Parents Defending Education, Glenn arms you with the facts about CRT so you can stand up to this tyranny in your community.

NO comparison between REAL Jim Crow laws & Georgia voting bill

The left keeps comparing Georgia's new voting regulations to Jim Crow era laws, arguing the voting bill is too restrictive and even racist against minority populations. But Glenn argues that it's an INSULTING comparison to make, especially to those who actually lived and experienced the real, horrifying Jim Crow laws during the early 20th century. In this clip, Glenn explains what Jim Crow ACTUALLY means and how Georgia does not even COME CLOSE.

Did Joe Biden tell America to stop praying?

Enough prayers? Why is supposed Catholic Joe Biden suggesting that Congress ought to stop praying for after someone commits acts of gun violence?

On Friday, Stu Burguiere and Pat Gray filled in for Glenn and discussed President Joe Biden's remarks during his speech on gun control. "Enough prayers. Time for some action," Biden said. Stu and Pat were surprised how dismissive Biden appeared to be on the idea of prayer.
