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?

YOU will be RESPONSIBLE for loss of rights if you riot

A new poster is circulating social media, calling for a record-breaking armed protest to take place across America on Inauguration Day. Here's Glenn's advice for those considering attendance: DON'T GO. No matter who is responsible for the poster or for any possible future chaos that may take place, the far left and the media WILL blame Trump supporters regardless of the facts. And because of that, if you attend and partake in rioting, you WILL be responsible for the loss of our rights that will come as a result. Don't go. But, listen to this clip to find out what Glenn thinks you SHOULD do on Inauguration Day instead…

Can Frustrated Conservatives Learn from the Tea Party? | Matt Kibbe | Ep 92

The nation was shocked as the "Save America" rally in Washington, D.C., devolved into a siege of the U.S. Capitol. The day after, as heads were still spinning, Glenn sits down with Matt Kibbe, host of BlazeTV's "Kibbe on Liberty," to look at what led to this: Woke authoritarianism is in power, lockdowns are unending, and the Left has finally found out how to weaponize fear. The media is all too happy to watch the country burn, as long as the Left is holding the torch. But Glenn and Matt remember the lessons learned from the Tea Party, Martin Luther King Jr., and other movements that found success through peace. Conservatives and libertarians must find a path forward so we have more 9-12 marches, fewer stormings of the Capitol, and real change from those who believe they rule over us.
