A couple of days ago I mentioned on the air that I’m 80/20 in terms of Crunch tacos vs. Soft tacos. It all began when Taco Bell announced that it would offer free tacos for a stolen base in the World Series. While I don’t know the details of Taco Bell’s offer, I do know that I would choose a crunch taco over a soft taco 80% of the time. I love the fact that I’m eating “chips” while I eat the contents of a taco — something you don’t get with the soft taco. But it seems that this has sparked debate among a few people as to which is better. Younger people tend to like soft tacos (which surprises me, since you’d think that seniors would love the chewability) while older, balding folks like myself dig the crunchy (or “hard”) shell tacos.
In fact, the more I think about the attributes of a crunchy taco, the more I feel myself trending toward a 90/10 ratio or (could it be?) a 99/1 ratio. I need to go find a math major to help me figure this out. While I do that, ask yourself: what would I get at the Bell? Crunchy or Soft? Consider pros and cons of each. Sure, you can say “I’d get both” — but how much of both? I want commitment to ratio, here.
