  • WOW, the end of the world as we know it.

    Me and my father went to Taco Bell for a dozen tacos for the three us, us and my mom.

    Guess what...TACO Bell has no TACOS...That is the ultimate WTF moment, I guess the supply chain is in serious trouble, do you blame lack of truckers anymore, or something else.

    I know the grocery stores are in serious trouble but nobody seems to be giving out the why, all I hear are the news stories with no one saying what is actually going on.

    The three of you should have driven to a Del Taco instead.

      So, you're saying there were four of you in total, right?

      Whatever it is, it certainly cannot be due to a shortage of that finely grated "cheese." The average Taco Bell barely goes through a pound of that stuff in a year.

            Publix grocery store had everything I needed. I sure as hell ain't paying 28 dollars for a 2 pound flank steak.

            12 bucks for a 2 lb pork tenderloin was more up my alley.

              Fast food, across the board, is in a death spiral.

              I have been disappointed for the last time in the drive thru. 15 bucks for a cold burger, cold fries, and a flat coke. And i am not allowed to complain?? Don't harrass those poor underpaid and over worked public servants. They will Tik Tok shame you.
              Tik Tok reveals all their tricks for screwing the customers and their employers. They made it easy to quit eating junk food.

              My favorite pizza joint went straight down the tubes. They can't get the help. I paid 22 dollars for a stone cold pizza for the last time.

              I have no problems at the grocery store. I have never screwed up a sandwich.

              America has an obesity problem and the end of fast food can't hurt. It is actually a good start to fixing the problem.

              Burger King is done
              McDonalds. Fuhgetaboutit
              Arbys drive thru only. Soggy salt brine beef served cold. I wouldnt let my dog eat it.
              Taco Hell. I saw them boil a 10 lb bag of their ground beef. I walked out never to return.
              Wendys went to hell when Dave died and his daughter took the reins. All you hear are the bells and buzzers going off inside as 2 people try run the entire slop shop.

              Jersey Mikes. I swear they cut 2 inches off a regular sub and charge 5 dollars more.

              I QUIT IT ALL. It is a race to the bottom.

                And Publix has decent Meat, Walmart, it least the one near us, forget about it.

                I do like Publix, the stores are actually clean, the employees are friendly instead of acting busy or goofing off like Wal Mart.

                When I was growing up in SW Florida, there was probably 5 or 6 Grocery Store Chains, then there was three, Winn Dixie was a bit out there, and Save-A-Lot.

                I moved to Florida, Winn Dixie is closer by...Last time I went there I bought one of their subs, GOT SICK WITH SOMETHING.

                There is a Piggy Wiggy, a few other smaller places like every other medium sized community. It is a in South Georgia College/Military Town.

                  I am very pleased to have Publix here in Virginia. Just as you said, the employees are wonderful. The produce looks beautiful. Florida oranges plump, ripe. Meats look beautiful. I just can' t pay the high prices for the beef.

                  We have Wegmans here. Beautiful meats but the produce is iffy. It is not worth higher prices on top of already high prices. 100 bucks gets me nothing.

                  Publix, 100 bucks and now i have too much food in the house with a snow storm coming Sunday.

                  I am eating breakfast lunch and dinner now a days. I had to make reforms in my life. I have to put on weight, and its happening fast.

                  Cutting out fast food was critical to this.

                    Obesity is not the fault of fast-food establishments and should not, in my opinion, be portrayed as such. It's
                    funny that those dollar stores are never cast in the same light. Walk through one sometime and look at the
                    food they offer. Foder perhaps, for another thread.

                    There are times I just need to have a whopper or McDonald's fish sandwich (I could eat a half dozen if I let myself).
                    But those times are quite rare. For the price of one of those meals, I can eat 3 squares for a couple of days. It just
                    doesn't make sense to me. Except once in a while.

                    The local Meijer is a joke. Empty shelves all over. It's been this way since before the great supply chain fiasco. One
                    day you can find things, the next...not so much. Across the road is a wally world. I can't bring myself to go unless
                    the circumstances are dire. But there are times I can find things there that are not available at Meijer. It's a sh/thole
                    located in a questionable part of town. It's a last resort. A 15-minute drive (versus the 3 minute trip to the above stores)
                    will take me near the Notre Dame campus. Whole wallet...er I mean Foods, Trader Joe's, and what we call the Gucci Martin's
                    supermarket all have full shelves and, of course, Notre Dame prices.

                    I would almost kill for a HyVee or Festival Foods near me.

                    I love Taco Bell tacos. It's the only thing I purchase whenever I do visit one (again...rarely). They used to sell pintos and
                    cheese cup that I ate many times (back when it was .50/portion). I duplicated it years ago and mine is better.

                      I caught the norovirus from Taco Bell drive thru about 7 years ago and never went back. I had never been so violently ill within 12 hours. That pic of the taco is actually disgusting. I've lost 40 pounds this past year just changing my lifestyle.

                        The end of the world as we know it in pizza, uffdah! I couldn't resist, a winter special at Joey Nova's Pizzeria in Tonka Bay, Minnesota--the Tater Tot Hot Dish pizza. It is a version of the Upper Midwest church supper consisting of Tater Tots of course, ground beef, cheddar cheese, cream of mushroom sauce, corn, and green beans.

                              This isn't the first time during the pandemic that Taco Bell has run short. It was news last Summer. One of the late night show hosts (Kimmel? Colbert?) said: "Taco Bell had to stop making tacos because they're running short on ingredients. This was news to me...Taco Bell has ingredients?"
