Taco Bell: ‘Cap’n Crunch Delights Are About to Get Real for All of America’ on July 2

Taco Bell: ‘Cap’n Crunch Delights Are About to Get Real for All of America’ on July 2


Move aside, Cinnabon Delights

Mark your calendars, Taco Bell fans.

Taco Bell — your beloved purveyor of important creations like the Doritos Locos Taco and alcoholic slushies (only in Chicago, for now) — has chosen National Doughnut Day (Friday, June 5) to announce that Cap’n Crunch Delights are coming.

By the way, if you are reading this on Friday, you should be out getting free doughnuts.

In February, Taco Bell announced that the lucky city of Bakersfield, California, would be the first test market for Cap’n Crunch Delights because, as proven by the successes of the Sriracha Quesarito and Snapple Lemonade Freeze, people love a good mashup.

The soon-to-be nationwide item is described as a “warm, light pastry, coated with delicious Cap'n Crunch's Crunch Berries cereal and filled with creamy, sweet milk icing.” If you’re not afraid to indulge your sweet tooth, these are for you.

Beginning July 2, you can get two Cap’n Crunch Delights for $1, four for $1.69, or a dozen for $4.49.


Taco Bell’s new doughnuts to feature Cap’n Crunch – and artificial ingredients

NEW YORK – Taco Bell says it will roll out Cap’n Crunch-covered balls of dough nationally – and that they’re exempt from its recent pledge to remove artificial ingredients.

The company said last week it would remove artificial colours, flavours and high-fructose corn syrup from its menu by the end of this year. But it noted there would be exceptions, including co-branded products like Doritos Locos Tacos.

On Friday, the company said its latest national product launch on July 2 would be Cap’n Crunch Delights, similar to doughnut holes filled with icing. Ashley Sioson, a Taco Bell representative, said in an email the new dessert will have artificial colours and flavours.

Taco Bell is among a number of major food makers dropping artificial ingredients from products to improve their images.

Taco Bell is owned by Yum Brands Inc., which also owns KFC and Pizza Hut.


11 Food Companies Removing Artificial Colors And Flavors By 2018

When you think of nacho cheese from Taco Bell, you probably picture a bright orange color that can really only be manufactured in a lab. That look will soon change, as the fast food chain plans to get rid of the artificial ingredients -- in this case, yellow dye no. 6 -- that cosmetically alter its food.

This kind of menu revamp has been adopted by many fast casual restaurants and big food brands this year. Kraft, Campbell Soup and many others have publicly announced promises to nix artificial ingredients and preservatives from most, if not all, of their edible offerings in the coming years, replacing them with natural alternatives.

The change comes at a time when consumer demand for healthier and more natural ingredients has surged: A 2014 report from the marketing research firm Nielsen showed that more than 60 percent of Americans found the lack artificial colors and flavors an important factor when making food purchases. While there isn't enough evidence to suggest that artificial flavors are harmful, removal is what the people want -- and their desires are being heard. Below, find 11 companies that are making changes to their foods now or in the near future.

The Mexican restaurant pioneered transparency about ingredients for chain restaurants and big food brands. By April 2015, Chipotle successfully removed all GMOs from its foods, the first chain to do so. The company is currently working to improve its tortillas, with hopes of serving them without the dough conditioners they currently contain.

In June, the chain announced that it will be producing tortillas with just four ingredients: whole wheat flour, water, oil and salt. The tortillas are still in the testing stage, but Chipotle is optimistic.


Is That Taco Bell Drive Thru Still Calling Your Name? (Don’t Let It, Here’s Why!)

When the news broke recently that Taco Bell was removing artificial ingredients by next year, headlines everywhere were proclaiming: “Taco Bell, Pizza Hut Nix Artificial Ingredients”… “Pizza Hut and Taco Bell Just Got a Little Bit Healthier”… “Taco Bell, Pizza Hut Ditching Artificial Colors and Flavors”.

I was pretty excited at this news and ready to celebrate. With so many companies changing their ingredients recently – everyone from Panera Bread to Chipotle to General Mills – I thought this was a huge win!

Taco Bell’s announcement was a head fake. It was very apparent this was a calculated public relations move once I started to dig a little further into their announcement.

This is why I ended up in the Taco Bell drive-thru….

Check it out here:

The truth is that Taco Bell won’t be removing artificial colors and flavors from all of their food, and Taco Bell’s food is pretty much staying the same.

Sure, they are removing a few ingredients here and there, but they are still selling lots of processed food. The first question I asked myself when I heard their announcement was: “How much will their menu change?”

Well, it turns out not very much!

That’s because Taco Bell hardly uses “artificial colors” and “artificial flavors” in the first place.

Artificial colors : I reviewed their online ingredient list (dated 6/9/15) and found that they only add FD&C certified artificial colors – like yellow #5 and blue #1 – to a small handful of items. Besides their sodas and drinks, I only found certified artificial colors in 6 individual products:

  1. Avocado Ranch Sauce
  2. Nacho Cheese Sauce
  3. Red Tortilla Strips
  4. Doritos Locos Taco Cool Ranch Shell (won’t be removed)
  5. Doritos Locos Taco Fiery Shell (won’t be removed)
  6. Doritos Locos Taco Nacho Cheese Shell (won’t be removed)

So, unless you are ordering something with Avocado Ranch Sauce, Nacho Cheese Sauce, or Red Tortilla Strips, it never contained artificial colors to begin with – and please note only 3 of the items above are actually changing … read on to find out more!

Artificial flavors : We all know that when you see “natural flavors” on an ingredient list it’s a secret mixture of up to 100 individual ingredients that aren’t necessarily any safer than artificial flavors, so removing artificial flavors only to replace them with natural flavors isn’t going to be a huge improvement in terms of faking us with added flavors. However, they did mention that they will start using “real black pepper” in their taco meat instead of artificial black pepper flavoring, which I applaud them for (but this also begs the question why they weren’t using plain old pepper in the first place)! Scanning their ingredient list, it’s apparent that almost all of the flavors that they use are “natural flavors” already, so not much is changing in this department.

Some of the most popular items at Taco Bell won’t be changing AT ALL because they are “co-branded”.

What does that mean? Anything that is in partnership with another brand, like their Pepsi or Frito Lay products (I’m talking about you, Mountain Dew Baja and Doritos taco shells). At least Taco Bell included in their announcement that co-branded products wouldn’t be affected, but you may not realize how many there are. There’s actually an extensive list of co-branded products at Taco Bell with either artificial colors or artificial flavors that won’t be changing, which include some of their most popular items like:

  • Doritos Locos Taco Shells (all varieties)
  • Cinnabon Delights
  • Nacho Cheese Doritos
  • Brisk Iced Tea & Lemonade
  • Mountain Dew Baja Blast
  • Mountain Dew Kickstart Orange Citrus
  • Starburst Strawberry Freeze
  • Cap’ n Crunch Delights

Taco Bell’s newest co-branded invention will be exempt as well!

Just a couple short weeks after their announcement, Taco Bell started advertising their new Cap’n Crunch Delights, which are exempt as a co-branded item, and literally covered in toxic Cap’n Crunch Berries. If Taco Bell really wanted to join the food revolution, they wouldn’t be advertising or selling “food” like this at all.

We all know that even if Taco Bell removes artificial colors and flavors from their food, it’s still not healthy.

They’ve got a looonnnnnng way to go if they really want to jump on the good food movement and win our business. Taco Bell needs to stop serving factory farmed meat raised with antibiotics, GMO ingredients, unnecessary preservatives like TBHQ (which Chick-Fil-A dumped), and monosodium glutamate (MSG) that makes us eat more than we should.

I realize that it’s “fast food” and not what any of us consider healthy, but think about how much our world would change if they stopped using products from industrial farms and genetically modified crops. They are an industry leader, and any changes they make trickles down to their suppliers. How much beef does Taco Bell buy every year? What about the corn in their taco shells? Taco Bell would need to use suppliers that agree to use farming practices that are better for the environment and our overall health. They would also need to stop buying food additives from the chemical companies.

Taco Bell told the media that they are looking “to remove more additives and artificial preservatives ‘where possible’ by the end of 2017” – so more changes might be on the horizon. I just hope they are the right ones.

Can Taco Bell do it? Are they up for the challenge? Until then, you certainly won’t find me at Taco Bell.

Do you have friends that told you they were excited about Taco Bell’s announcement and plan to start eating there again? Share this post and video with them! The more that we can keep the pressure on, the quicker industry leaders like Taco Bell will change. We are really making waves right now, and although it seems like the pace is slow at times, I know we can make this happen and can get more people access to safer and cleaner food.


The Eight Most Outrageous Fast-Food Mash-Ups of 2015 (So Far)

In an effort to pull in self-proclaimed foodies (who might be just as annoying as self-proclaimed hipsters) or perhaps anybody surfing the health food rebellion known as "snackwave," fast-food moguls are mixing and matching as many foods as possible. While some concoctions (like a croissant-cradled hot dog) make at least a little sense, others (pork chop&ndashtopped breakfast sandwich, we're looking at you) leave us saying "Huh?" Here, eight of the weirdest fast-food mash-ups to hit the market this year.

Krispy Kreme's Bacon Donut Dog
If you thought doughnut hamburger buns were weird, get this: Krispy Kreme's partnership with the Wilmington BlueRocks (that's a minor league baseball team in Delaware, in case you don't speak sports) birthed this cross between a hot dog and a donut. A donut "bun" is filled with a hot dog, drizzled with raspberry jam, and topped with chopped bacon. Luckily you can only get this heart-attack-waiting-to-happen at the team's stadium in Delaware. The calorie count is still a mystery, but let's just say Krispy Kreme isn't know for its health food.

Olive Garden's Breadstick Sandwich
The food scientists at Olive Garden have taken what many argue is the best part of the chain's menu&mdashthe breadsticks&mdashand made them into sandwich rolls. A crispy piece of fried chicken (or meatballs) is topped with tomato sauce and cheese and then tucked inside an oversized breadstick. If that's not enough, the sub comes with&mdashyou guessed it&mdashmore breadsticks (plus French fries and soup or salad). Since one normal-size breadstick is 140 calories, we're guessing this isn't exactly a low-cal lunch.

Pizza Hut's Hot Dog Bites Pizza
If you haven't seen the cheesy commercial, we'll catch you up: Pizza Hut's rationale behind this outrageous idea is a simple "'MURICA!" A pizza topped with your choice of salty meat is surrounded by 28 individually wrapped mini hot dogs and served with a side of yellow mustard for dipping. That's pretty damn American. Each slice contains "a belly-busting 460 calories," according to The Daily Beast, whose staff was brave enough to try one of these bad boys. Pizza Hut isn't forthright with other nutrition stats&mdashwe wonder why.

Sonic's Croissant Dog
Sonic calls it "the gourmet way to hot dog." We call it "how can I add butter to something that's already bad for me?" Instead of eating a processed meat tube wrapped in white bread, this fancier hot dog is cradled by a croissant&mdashall French and whatnot. Go for the Bacon Double Cheddar version and you've got yourself 510 calories, 34 g of fat, and 1,670 mg of sodium.

Carl's Jr.'s Most American Thickburger
Here's another creation that dirties the names of Americans everywhere. The Most American Thickburger is a beef patty topped with American cheese (of course), a hot dog, and kettle-cooked potato chips. This strange concoction weighs in at 1,030 calories, 64 g of fat, and 2,350 mg of sodium.

Taco Bell's Cap'N Crunch Delights
We've already mentioned these little monstrosities, but that was when you had to travel to Bakersfield, CA, to get them. But the good people of Bakersfield weren't able to shut down this trend&mdashthe neon red "delights" debuted nationwide on July 2. For $1 you can buy a package of two donuts filled with a sweet milk frosting and rolled in crushed Cap'N Crunch cereal. But you'll only need two, since even those two little bites cost you 170 calories and 11 g of fat.

Carl's Jr.'s Grilled Pork Chop Biscuit
Why anyone would want a pork chop slapped on their breakfast sandwich is beyond us. But if that's your thing, we suggest you make it at home. Even "grilled," this pork chop, egg, and cheese biscuit weighs in at 530 calories, 30 g of fat, and 1,410 mg of sodium. Not exactly the best way to start your day.

Little Caesars Soft Pretzel Crust Pizza
This pizza-pretzel mash-up isn't new to the fast-food world it got its start last fall during a limited-time trial at Little Caesars chains across America. And now it's back&mdashagain for a limited time. The pie barely resembles pizza, with its soft pretzel crust, cheese sauce instead of marinara, and more cheese and pepperoni on top. One slice sets you back 270 calories and 11 g of fat.


Taco Bell right to your door? Company considers delivery

IRVINE, Calif. — Taco Bell could be coming straight to your doorstep in the near future.

The fast-food chain known for its Doritos Locos Tacos and late-night food runs is considering home delivery, according to CEO Brian Niccol.

Niccol told Nation’s Restaurant News he couldn’t provide details, but said delivery was a top request among Taco Bell customers.

“Even though it’s the No. 1 request from consumers, we have to make sure we can give them an experience that’s consistent with Taco Bell, and that’s what we’re working through,” he said. “We have to figure it out, and I can tell you right now we don’t have it figured out.”

He said the company plans to test delivery late in the year.

That’s not the only big change on the way though. Taco Bell is also considering changing the size and placement of its restaurants:

Taco Bell will also open new units in shipping containers, restaurants with open kitchens, and units with a smaller footprint designed for urban locations. The new restaurants and packaging will be more environmentally friendly, and the chain is also looking at ways to become more transparent about food, including a possible switch to meat raised without antibiotics or hormones.

Niccol said Taco Bell is still working to innovate its breakfast menu. There are plans to roll out something called the “Cap’n Crunch Delights” later this year.


And Now The Best Tacos

200 calories, 10g fat (3.5 g saturated), 490 mg sodium, 16 g carbs, 1 g fiber, 2 g sugars, 13 g protein

The first ingredient here is avocado, normally one of our favorite weight-loss foods, and we’re fine with the cheddar cheese and iceberg lettuce. (Too bad it’s all slathered with artificially-flavored ranch sauce.) Still, we’re happy to see USDA-select grilled steak and fresh tomatoes make it into this flour tortilla. Enjoy one—occasionally.

Top Twenty Acrylamide-Rich Foods

In July of 2006, the United States Food and Drug Administration released the results of its latest research on the acrylamide content of common foods.

The top 20 foods by average acrylamide intake by the U.S. population are as follows:

  1. French Fries (made in restaurants)
  2. French Fries (oven baked)
  3. Potato Chips
  4. Breakfast Cereals
  5. Cookies
  6. Brewed Coffee
  7. Toast
  8. Pies and Cakes
  9. Crackers
  10. Soft Bread
  11. Chile con Carne
  12. Corn Snacks
  13. Popcorn
  14. Pretzels
  15. Pizza
  16. Burrito/Tostada
  17. Peanut Butter
  18. Breaded Chicken
  19. Bagels
  20. Soup Mix

Acrylamide has been shown to cause cancer in animals. Exposure to large doses of acrylamide has also been shown to cause neurological damage in humans.

Acrylamide tends to form when foods that are high in carbohydrates and/or an amino acid called asparagine are cooked at high temperatures. Cooking methods that tend to require high temperatures - like frying, roasting, and baking - are more likely to cause acrylamide formation in food. Non-cooked and boiled foods almost never contain detectable levels of acrylamide.

The top two food groups listed above - French fries and potato chips - are two of the most damaging foods to human health. Despite the creation of "healthy" varieties of French fries and potato chips like New York Fries - Fried in 100% Non-Hydrogenated Sunflower Oil and Trader Joe's Veggie Chips Potato Snacks, it's important to know that all French fries and potato chips that have been deep-fried in oil are heavily laced with acrylamide and pose a significant threat to one's health.

What follows is the most recent survey data on acrylamide in food by the U.S. FDA.


The 12 Most Disgusting Fast-Food Innovations of 2015

Few industries are as shameless as fast food. Pizza Hut, Burger King, Taco Bell, Papa John's and their countless competitors will do just about anything to stand above the rest and entice consumers. They play directly from the Donald Trump Playbook of Capturing the Hearts and Minds (and Stomachs) of America: Just introduce the most ridiculous concept imaginable with as much gusto as possible. If people are paying attention, you're winning.

In 2015, this strategy extended far beyond the actual menu. Fast-food restaurants are now trying to brand themselves onto our very existence. The familiar string of logos that line every highway is not enough. Neither is the never-ending stream of commercials. In 2015, we must be able to plug our minds into fast-food chains at all hours of the day, wherever we may be. Domino's gave customers the option of not only ordering from their TVs, or ordering with a literal button, but also tweeting a pizza emoji. Not to be outdone, Pizza Hut introduced hands-free ordering in your car. KFC offered grease-resistant keyboard trays. It's all happening.

McDonald's is vastly more conservative when it comes to introducing Frankenstein-esque culinary mashups (which we're getting to). They have to protect the integrity of the Golden Arches, after all. Instead of getting crazy with their menu, the chain opted to turn the Big Mac into a lifestyle collection.

Pizza Hut wasn't far behind, rolling out Pizza Hut freaking nail polish and pizza-flavored beer. In Hong Kong, they offered pizza box film projectors. Burger King unveiled Chicken Fries emojis, not for ordering fries but just for, like, texting your friends, because #Millennials. What else do #Millennials like? How about hipster stuff? McDonald's rebooted the poor Hamburglar into a burger thief for the 21st century. Why? Another headline. Please kill us.

And what of the actual food? It's no less ubiquitous and certainly no less disgusting. Here is the worst of what your favorite fast-food establishments introduced in 2015, ranked from least to most disgusting. Don't read on an empty stomach.

12. Taco Bell's Croissant Taco

This isn't a terrible idea, relative to what's about to follow on this list, but we're guessing whatever they hand you through the drive-thru window isn't as neat and tidy as the promotional picture lets on. After all, croissants weren't intended to be taco-ized. Neither were waffles. Neither were biscuits.

11. Pizza Hut's Triple Treat Box

This isn't really that gross, but the idea that we're now literally ordering a chest of drawers full of Pizza Hut is disturbing.

10. Little Caesars Bacon-Wrapped Pizza

Sure, anybody can put bacon on a pizza, but not everyone can wrap a pizza in bacon. Brilliant, Little Caesars.

9. Burger King's Black Halloween Burger

Ah, just what we've always wanted: a mold-colored hamburger bun!

8. Papa John's Epic Meatz Pizza

There isn't anything particularly abhorrent about this pizza. It's a lot of meat. Big deal. Allegedly, it's "all the delicious, mouth-watering meats we could fit inside a pizza box." It makes the list because of the name, "Epic Meatz," a pathetic combination of ending a word with a "z"—which stopped being edgy 10 years ago when Bratz dolls were peaking—and epic, which is also stupid and contrived. This is basically the clickbait of fast-food fare.

7. Arby's Pumpkin Cheesecake Shake

Just because it's fall doesn't mean your fast-food franchise is legally required to introduce a pumpkin-flavored item, especially when said fast-food restaurant's specialty is soggy roast beef. Hard pass.

6. Dunkin' Donut's Snickerdoodle Croissant Donut and Caramel Cheesecake Square

2015 taught us that we have yet to see croissant-based culinary innovations reach their stomach-turning conclusion. But snickerdoodle? Why? Even worse is this sad cheesecake square, on top of which Dunkin' Donuts has inexplicably sprinkled little chocolate turd pellets. God bless the rest of your day if you can actually bring yourself to finish one of these bad boys before 9 a.m.

5. Taco Bell's Cap'n Crunch Delights

It's honestly hard for us to focus our attention on these balls of congealed diabetes for more than a few seconds without getting sick. What kind of suicide-cultish groupthink had to go down to make these happen? Easily the most inexplicable item on the list.

4. Pizza Hut's Hot Dog Bites Pizza

This was the clear winner as far as media attention goes.

This is available only in the Philippines (for now), but we had to feature it because. I mean, look at it. Ever since KFC introduced its line of "Famous Bowls," which comedian Patton Oswalt memorably mocked, the chain has been the industry leader in just throwing a bunch of shit together and selling it. (A close second, as far as KFC's Philippine menu items go, is the Double Down Hot Dog. Click the link at your own risk.)

2. Carl's Jr.'s Most American Thickburger

A cheeseburger featuring not only a hot dog but also a handful of potato chips. Far too often are "Most American" and "revolting" synonymous. This is no exception.

1. Carl's Jr.'s Tex-Mex Bacon Burger

Are we really giving the top two spots to the same chain? Carl's Jr. left us no choice. Not only did no one ask for their Fourth of July picnic to be shoved between two pieces of bread, the video promoting our No. 1 abomination may be the most offensive minute of 2015, a year when Donald Trump ran for president. Truly remarkable, Carl's Jr. We'd say we're impressed if we weren't running to the bathroom to throw up.

Partnership

The Turners have been married eight years (and are parents of two children, ages 5 and 3). During that time, Jeremy has executed a couple of attention-grabbing ideas.

The Vintagemobile was a bus they converted to sell vintage clothes. It's no longer operating, but they'll be back in November with the Ugly Christmas Sweater Shop, which will have locations at Mockingbird Station and Frisco's Centre at Preston Ridge starting Nov. 15.

That's the store that won them national attention from, among other places, on Good Morning America.

What's the secret to coming up with ideas that get so much traction?

Start with creativity. Kelsey says her husband is an idea machine.

"He throws a ton of ideas at me," she says. "A lot. I have to sift through for the good ones."

Another clue? When he talks about his design choices, Jeremy speaks in personal terms.

The Lamborghini Countach poster in one bedroom came about because Jeremy remembers that his older brother had one. ("I had the Ferrari Testarossa.") The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles game? "It was my favorite arcade as a kid." Those other games? "One of my favorite Christmases was when we got our little Nintendo."

The frozen Totino's pizzas they leave in the freezer to surprise guests? "I ate so many of those as a kid. Oh my gosh!"

Jeremy's boyish demeanor suggests the heart he put into the concept, and he says he's more interested in being artistic than in just driving commerce. But the art does help the commerce, he acknowledges.

"There's a lot of nice Airbnbs out there," he says. "It's very saturated now. So whenever I make something I really want there to be some magic in it. I want it to conjure up some feeling."

He believes in immersive experiences. Inside the McFly, that philosophy means guests can play the games, or leave graffiti on the phone box as they leave, or taste that cereal buffet. At the sweater shop, that's why he serves cookies and hot chocolate — and why he drives there in an early-'80s AMC Concord, with simulated wood siding. He says it evokes the Griswold family of National Lampoon's Christmas.

If the internet response is an indicator, it all works.
