What’s Really In Those Free Doritos Locos Tacos?

Taco Bell Doritos Locos Taco – free, and worth it

| Headline Health – We hope that everyone lining up for a free Doritos Locos Taco at Taco Bell today gets a healthy and wholesome snack.

However, the fact is that a pair of prominent taco ingredients – lettuce and ground beef – are two of the foods most often associated with outbreaks of foodborne illness. [Nearly endless examples: lettuce | ground beef].

In addition, the Mexican fast food chain has a nasty habit of frequently showing up in food poisoning reports; iwaspoisoned.com reports more than a dozen Taco Bell food poisoning cases since October 8:

Everyone Gets Free Taco Bell Today

Tony Merevick, Thrillist – It’s official: Everyone in America gets a free taco from Taco Bell on Thursday, thanks to baseball.

As expected, the fast food chain’s annual “Steal a Base, Steal a Taco” free food giveaway was triggered by the first stolen base of the 2018 World Series between the Los Angeles Dodgers and the Boston Red Sox.

Sure, the Boston Red Sox ended up winning World Series, but a free taco feeding frenzy is something everyone can get excited about, regardless of team affiliation.

When and where to get free tacos

Taco Bell locations all across the country that are participating in the nationwide tacopalooza will give you one Doritos Locos Taco for literally zero money between 2pm and 6pm (local time) on Thursday, November 1.

All you have to do is line up, extend your hand, take your free taco, and eat said free taco. It’s that simple. Though it probably wouldn’t hurt to throw some Fire Sauce on it first — just to be safe.

As for why Taco Bell is hosting the giveaway on November 1 from 2pm to 6pm, well, we’re just assuming they needed some time to prepare for the hoards of hungry taco fans.

“We’ve created a fun tradition for our fans with Taco Bell and the ‘Steal a Base, Steal a Taco’ promotion,” Noah Garden, MLB executive vice president, commerce, said in a statement. “It makes for a unique moment every year during the World Series and certainly the fans will have their eyes on the first stolen base of the Fall Classic.”

Taco Bell has a limit of one free Doritos Locos Taco per person, while supplies of the beloved nacho cheese-flavored taco shells last. Read more.
