Listen: Nancy Luna, who writes the Fast Food Maven blog for the Orange County Register, does a tremendous job. Obviously. She blogs about fast food.
And she appears to be a fan of, or at least fascinated by the Taco Bell Breakfast tests running in certain markets, and she’s one of the few decent journalists out there providing the hungry world with investigative reports on and photos of what Taco Bell is serving up before 11 a.m.
But with all due respect to Ms. Luna, she’s guilty of burying the lede in a recent update on various Taco Bell test items being served at a location in Tustin, Calif.
Check it out. This is 12 paragraphs deep:
Now, about these pastries and snack items. This continues to be an odd Taco Bell experiment.
The double fudge brownie, along with an atomic bacon bomber, are new to the Tustin menu. I tried the brownie, which was lightly dusted with powdered sugar….
Whoa, whoa, whoa. I’m sorry. Back one step. Did you just say “atomic bacon bomber”? Did I read that right?
I did. How is that not the title of this blog post? How is the front page headline of OCRegister.com anything other than “Tustin Taco Bell now serving Atomic Bacon Bomber”?
Atomic Bacon Bomber!
I e-mailed Nancy, and she politely explained that she didn’t even notice the item until after she was too full from sampling the new Pacific Shrimp Taco and the Taco Bell test brownie, which is, on its own, pretty fascinating.
I don’t know what the people of Tustin did to deserve a Taco Bell that serves breakfast, lunch, dinner, Fourthmeal, and dessert, but damn, I have to move to Tustin.
Until then, I need your help, TedQuarters readers. My traffic tracker tells me that this blog has been visited from Tustin IP addresses at least a dozen times, not to mention a bunch more from surrounding towns in Southern California.
Who’s going to help me? Someone needs to get out to the Tustin Taco Bell and find out what the Atomic Bacon Bomber is. I’ll need pictures and a full report. Please, it’s for the sake of all humanity.
