Strangesauce

Am I the only one who is weirded out by Taco Bell's hot sauce packets?

Some of their sayings are awkward, some are punny (and if you know me, you know that I love a good pun), and some just downright don't make any sense.
I mean, it certainly is a way to stand out in a world of fast food joints (though technically, they already do because they don't make burgers) but... why?


If one of you works at Taco Bell and understands this strange phenomenon, please explain. Because I am dying to figure it out.

haha, that's awesome that they do that! i haven't been to a taco bell in like 4 years so I had no idea about these. From the ones in your pic, the only one I don't get is 'heads...' So if anyone understands that one, let me know!

lol! I totally don't get it. I mean...I get what some of them mean...I just don't get the why. Originality?

Haha, the, "Where are you taking me?" packet makes me think that I'm some crazy person kidnapping the sauce and taking it to some unspecified location...creepy. I usually love the more adorable ones like, "Marry me?" or others to that effect.

I'm not sure if they've changed them recently, but I've always been partial to the one that says "It's dark and I hear laughing"...or whatever. slightly more pyschotic than a fortune cookie.

Marci- I KNOW THAT ONE!! That's one of the creepy ones...

I don't really like Taco Bell, but those packets have been around for a while because I remember them the last time I ate there (forever ago)! I was weirded out by the one that said Will you marry me?
Because I mean really..marriage proposal on a hot sauce packet?

P.S. A couple of those make a pretty good TWSS.

My family and I will randomly pull one out and toss it to each other like we're really saying the message....we've had good times.

Before Zack left on his mission he got one of the "will you marry me?" packets and gave it to me. What a cop out. Hahaha.

Haha!!! So much more interesting than a normal packet of sauce, my favourite one from this photo is the flying saucer one :P
