Whats in a Taco Bell taco?

Nothing good. Accoring to Gizmodo, there is: "Beef, water, isolated oat product, salt, chili pepper, onion powder, tomato powder, oats (wheat), soy lecithin, sugar, spices, maltodextrin (a polysaccharide that is absorbed as glucose), soybean oil (anti-dusting agent), garlic powder, autolyzed yeast extract, citric acid, caramel color, cocoa powder, silicon dioxide (anti-caking agent), natural flavors, yeast, modified corn starch, natural smoke flavor, salt, sodium phosphate, less than 2% of beef broth, potassium phosphate, and potassium lactate."

 Yum. And there is only 36% beef in all that muck. And take a look at the meat before it gets "cooked" (microwaved). This is reason number 4,056 why I have not eaten fast food in almost four years. Seriously, people eat this stuff and then wonder why they are fat or unhealthy. Then I have to pay my tax dollars to dilate their kidneys and insert pacemakers into their over sized gullets. Then again this taco "meat" isn't as bad as what chicken nuggets and patties are made of... Anyone want an apple?
PS, that's not a new variety of ice cream, that's the goop they shape into "chicken" nuggets.
