I just saw this on Twitter… (or, Taco Bell likes to stretch the truth)

[h/t to @appetite4profit for this one – you should follow her if you are interested, at all, in food politics.]

Here is what they say:

@TacoBell tweeted first: “Get an 88¢ Crunchwrap Supreme® for a limited time @TacoBell – Hurry! Offer ends March 5th! http://bit.ly/88Promo #NowThatsADeal”

In response, @treyisnotdead wrote: “@TacoBell How can you afford to generate fake meat so cheaply?”

@TacoBell then wrote: “@TacoBell is large U.S. beef buyer & gets good prices: http://bit.ly/ingredfaq RT @treyisnotdead: How can you generate meat so cheaply?”

DO YOU SEE WHAT THEY DID THERE? Trey certainly did.

He then posted: “FRAUD ALERT! FRAUD ALERT! @TACOBELL RETWEETED ME BUT DID NOT INCLUDE THE WORD “FAKE” TO DESCRIBE THEIR “MEAT.””

Wow.  So, Taco Bell has already been busted for falsely advertising their “meat” as meat.  And now, using a social media site where one can EASILY track what people have said, they manipulated a tweet to try to brag about their ability to purchase that “beef” at good prices.

Stay classy, Taco Bell.
