Would Liz Lemon sustain late to have a look at a horrible however someway great actuality current? Certain. And it’s fully value it.

screen shot 2012 05 21 at 1 21 54 pm Lincoln has an superior state capital setting up nonetheless no CCB.

My quest has formally begun. No Taco Bell will go….unturned?….uncovered?…..un….I’m unlikely sure what phrase applies proper right here, nonetheless suffice it to say I’ll be visting a great deal of Taco Bells throughout the subsequent yr, and so will Captain Thoughtful on account of he is very supportive of this quest and as well as has an infinite urge for meals.

Closing weekend I visited the Taco Bell throughout the Dallas-Ft. Worth Airport. No luck. They didn’t even have the entire menu, rather a lot a lot much less the fabled and elusive Chili Cheese Burrito (or CCB as I am going to title if any longer on account of my typing laziness.) So, that was disappointing. Nonetheless, quests aren’t suggest to be easy so I continued on with extreme hopes and a growling tummy.

My subsequent stop throughout the quest was Nebraska. Notably, Lincoln. There was a Taco Bell decrease than a mile from our lodge and I immediately had a wonderful feeling about it. We stopped by after a late evening time and pulled as a lot because the drive-thru, my coronary coronary heart was pounding as I perused the burrito menu….and……nothing. I suggest, that they’d burritos, nonetheless they didn’t have THE burrito, the one burrito to rule all of them. You let me down Lincoln, Nebraska Taco Bell.

Later, upon extra introspection I seen the “good feeling” I had regarding the Lincoln Taco Bell could almost certainly have been increased labeled as “hunger”. I’m going to have to be cautious for that in the end.

The search continues.

Moreover, it has been steered that I could merely uncover the recipe and make the CCB for myself nonetheless that is clearly the cowards means out of a quest and I’m no coward. Stop making logical options like this to me immediately. They offend my sensibility.
