Crave Taco Week
March 2-8, 2020
So many tacos…so little time!
Who doesn't love tacos? They are fun to eat, the fillings are limitless, and they are available everywhere. I guess that’s why over 4.5 billion tacos are sold each year in the United States. That’s proof as to how much we crave tacos.
The Origin of the taco predates the arrival of the Spanish in Mexico. There is anthropological evidence that the indigenous people living in the lake region of the Valley of Mexico traditionally ate tacos filled with small fish.
Here are some Fun Facts for my taco connoisseurs:
- Taco Tia was opened by Glen Bell in 1954, He also sold hot dogs and burgers. In 1962, Glen Bell made Taco Tia the first Mexican fast food franchise and changed the name to Taco Bell.
- Taco Bell and McDonald’s are located in the same town.
- Taco John’s was the first to trademark “Taco Tuesday” 1989, and still has some claim to the phrase.
