A current Taco Bell employee recently started a Reddit AMA (“Ask Me Anything”) conversation to answer other users’ pressing questions about the restaurant. Below, we’ve outlined the most interesting topics discussed in the thread for all you diehard Taco Bell advocates out there.
Haven’t tried the Chipotle sauce yet? You’re seriously missing out
If you’ve ordered Taco Bell’s Spicy Potato Soft Taco recently, chances are you noticed a bold and creamy orange sauce drizzled on top. That’s the Chipotle sauce, “the best sauce” at the restaurant, according to the employee, who also admitted to putting it on everything. We just found our new favorite taco add-on!
The 3 things you need to be the picture-perfect customer
When one Reddit user asked about the “best customer ever,” the current Taco Bell employee broke down the three things that define a great customer: “Anyone who places a simple order, is polite, and appreciative for us busting a** to serve up their food,” the employee wrote.
So, the beef is actually frozen before getting cooked . . .
Someone couldn’t resist asking the question that has definitely crossed our minds plenty of times: what’s the deal with the beef? It apparently “comes frozen in bags,” the employee said. “We let it sit in hot water for a while then cut em open and serve it up.”
What do employees eat from there?
If you’ve ever wondered what Taco Bell employees themselves actually eat, wonder no more! This Taco Bell employee broke down a typical order: “Normally, a steak Quesarito, add potatoes and extra chipotle sauce. But I’ve been loving the Double Chalupas while they’re still around,” the employee wrote.
It looks like our beloved raspberry-flavored tea is gone for good
When one concerned customer asked about a Taco Bell beverage, the raspberry-flavored tea, the employee wasn’t sure why it disappeared in the first place. “Can’t say, it was gone before I started working at my location. We still have the mango tea but it’s not that great,” the employee explained. Rest in peace, berry tea; it was fun while you lasted.
