After a recent trip to “the always delicious Taco Bell,” I thought I’d check their nutritional information (chart from Taco Bell website on 10/17/2012). I was pleased to discover that my favorite items (off the “Fresco” menu) are actually relatively healthy. Taco Bell, always delicious . . . and healthy. Woo-hoo!
BUT, I was horrified to learn one of Taco Bell’s deep, dark secrets. Here is a portion of the Taco Bell nutrition page. I have not altered it in any way, other than to add a yellow line that highlights my discovery.
Has anybody told Mayor Bloomberg about this? He may need to start banning 30 oz. diet drinks from Taco Bell.
At any rate, now you know what to avoid when placing your next order at “the always delicious Taco Bell.”
UPDATE: As of 5:27 p.m. on Thursday, October 18, the Taco Bell website has been corrected. The 30 0z. Diet Pepsi now contains no calories.
