Taco Bell is nixing trans fat:Bad news for the fast food companies, Fast Food Nation the movie opens tomorrow. Get ready for the media storm of reactionary PR from the McDonalds, Burger Kings, and KFCs of the world. Stuff like this. Dylan T. Lovan of the Associated Press reports
"This is something we've been working on for over two years, and we just believe it's the right thing and the right changes to make in our products," said Warren Widicus, Taco Bell's chief food innovation officer.I guess you got to keep some trans fat, after all, it’s just so tasty—tongue in cheek. Hopefully Fast Food Nation will convince Americans, and people all over the world, that fast food isn’t exactly the wholesome grub it’s marketed to be. For more on the movie check out these links:
Widicus said the change means 15 Taco Bell menu items will contain no trans fats, including the Crunchy Beef Taco, the Taco Supreme, some chalupas and cinnamon twists. He said some items, like the Grilled Stuft Burrito, will still contain some trans fat.
