Coming March 3rd: Pacific Shrimp Taco Is Back at Taco Bell… And Now There’s a Pacific Shrimp Burrito

The Pacific Shrimp Taco is back at Taco Bell.  I am not a fan. I’m sure I won’t be a fan of the Pacific Shrimp Burrito either… but whatever, this isn’t a review, it’s sharing some news.  You can get these at Taco Bell starting March 3rd.

Six succulent shrimp, marinated in spices, topped with crisp shredded lettuce, creamy avocado ranch and fiesta salsa, and served up in a taco. (210 calories, 11 grams of fat)

    How did Taco Bell figure out how to make fake shrimp?

    I had these last year when they were around.

    The shrimp was simply the frozen shrimp you can buy in bulk at a supermarket (or in their case, a wholesaler) that is deveined and peeled, and cooked and marinated in enough sauce to make you forget it was frozen shrimp.

    The taste was decent IMO.

    The only problem was $3 for one shrimp taco.

    I’m not looking forward to coming into work Thursday and being briefed on these items. Who comes to Taco Bell to eat shrimp?

    umm…actually I work at taco bell and just to let you know our shrimp is not fake, it comes from china, thailand, mexico, and some other places to. We have a paper about it. So how about you just shut up because you don’t know what the hell your talking about.

    “Pacific shrimp” yeah right. Can I assume that these are farm raised fresh water shrimp grown in third world countries? Fresh water is not to confused with clean or good water, rather it is just not salty. Nasty!

    cut and paste below:

    Often, conditions on shrimp farms are unsanitary and frequently lead to the U.S. refusing shrimp imports for reasons of “filth.” The most significant dangers are posed by internationally farm-raised shrimp. At shrimp farms in locales such as Southeast Asia, overcrowding and poor sanitary conditions create a largely unstable environment, full of viruses and bacteria. To discourage disease, the shrimp pools are pumped with antibiotics and chemicals – some of which are actually illegal in the United States. The shrimp are frozen as they are transported, but this doesn’t always kill the chemicals or viruses. The FDA is charged with testing the shrimp when they arrive in the United States, but inspection guidelines aren’t as stringent as consumers might like, so various watchdog organizations have cropped up to try to prevent potential harms.
