I’m getting hundreds of mails about these mexi-fries. I was told that mexi-fries originated at Taco Time. Apparently the Mexi-Fries were very popular but the rest of their food wasn’t. Taco Time went in the crapper but Taco Bells popped up everywhere. The fuckers at the Bell decided that they could just rip off Taco Time’s mexi-fries and no one would notice. So Taco Bell started carrying mexi-fries, only their proper name was Mexi-nuggets. These mexi-nuggets also bear more than a striking resemblance to Taco Johns’ Potato Ole’s, seen below.
Now the shape isn’t quite right as mexi-nuggets and fries are essentially just tater tots while these Potato Ole’s seem more like little disks. Little delicious disks.
I found a Taco Time today for lunch and ordered some Mexi-Fries. I had never even realized we had a Taco Time until just this afternoon, even though it is literally just a block from the Taco Bell. As I endured my disgusting burrito I looked around at the nearly empty restaurant and felt sorry for them. It’s true they had mexi-fries but it seems as though they were unable to reproduce that success. The rest of their menu looked bland and uninspired. Even the mexi-fries I ordered tasted pretty much like regular tater tots who perhaps at some point in their brief life had read a travel brochure about Mexico. These were not the mexi-treats I longed for.
I did receive what I can only imagine is a top secret recipe that I am told came directly from Taco Bell manuals. I give you, the recipe for mexi-fries:
Cook some tater tots, then sprinkle them with mexican seasoning.
Many Bothans died to bring us this information.
In a related story, Taco Bell seems to have discontinued their chili cheese burrito as well. I was never a fan of this particular item myself but I understand the pain that these people must be going through. Fans of the burrito have united and created a website to spread the word about this horrendous injustice.
How long will we let this sort of thing go on? I could be wrong, but the last time I checked we still lived in America.
