Taco Bell, Del Taco Unite to Fight Stoner Expo That Used Their Logos Without Permission

Categories: Our Taco Hells

I think you can divide the world--or at least Southern California--into two types of people: those who love Taco Bell and those who love Del Taco. And then there are the stoners who swear by both of them for midnight munchies, who'll shove either of the two down their gullets, especially if it's extra-cheesy.

The two companies will never acknowledge this latter fan base, even though they were the ones who made Del Scorcho sauce into a modern-day sacrament and secured the popularity of Doritos Locos Tacos. Stoners should be angry at the lack of respect, and now they have even more reason to be angry at the two now that the companies have united to go after the upcoming Kush Expo at the Anaheim Convention Center.

Turns out that the convention devoted to all things, um, medicinal used the Taco Bell and Del Taco logos without the permission of the companies, who would've never allowed such use in the first place. Kush Expo organizers took down the logos from their website, but promotional literature already published apparently also had the logos.

Not a smart move, Kushites (and why didn't you advertise with us in our latest issue? Just saying...), but we nevertheless side with ustedes. It's time that Taco Bell and Del Taco acknowledge their most fevered fans--perhaps it's time for a boycott?

I wish Del Taco would bring back the 'Bun Taco'. I'm not a taco bell guy...but I hear they had something called the 'Bell Beefer'.

bullshit. take that stigma off of cannabis. not all people who smoke cannabis eat that shit. when i used to smoke i'd get hungry for healthy food and inspired to do work or art or work out or something. i only ate that crap when i drank booze. cannabis is "illegal" because it's an alternative to pharmaceuticals, booze, and cigarettes. fact.

To hell with this two companies, I will start my own little drive thru in Corona, picture this; we will play nothing but the best dub and ambient music, the first item in the menu will be the Pacheco flauta! A perfect hand made tortilla with bacon, carnitas, takis nitro, jalapeño,

I don't know why Del Taco is united with the Irvine company that only has 86 percent beef in their meat.

I have an old coworker from my last job that works in TB office. I need to ask him if there are a good amount of stoners working there. LOL I mean some of the ideas they come out with have stoner food written ALL over it.

Late night fake mex is often better than a burger when one has munchies
