Taco Bell recently announced that it will soon begin serving a variety of snack items, such as the new “loaded grillers” – your choice of nachos, chicken or a loaded baked potato, wrapped nicely in a tortilla.

Bless Taco Bell, the tacos they serve in a Dorito shell, and the simple fact that they once responded to Michael Jordan’s infamous tweet, “I was wondering, Is a Taco a sandwitch?” (Answer: No, Michael. It’s a taco.)
