Someone Invented These And They’re Actually Making Money Off It

When people say you can find anything on the internet, they’re not kidding. For instance, there is a dinosaur-inspired taco holder called the TriceraTACO-Holder available for purchase online. Yes, it’s real, and it holds tacos – check it out for yourself:

Here is the one and only TriceraTACO, a Triceratops dinosaur that holds not ONE, but TWO tacos.

The first thing you’ll notice is that these things are clearly marketed to people who mostly eat American-style, Taco Bell-ish hard shell tacos.

They’re definitely not designed for holding the tacos you’re probably used to eating (but who knows, they may fit).

Sure, those tacos may not fit your definition of “authentic,” but the kids are loooooving it!

Not only are they able to eat their tacos without making a huge mess, but after they’re done eating, they can even play with the Triceratops as a toy*. It’s a two in one combo that every kid will enjoy!

*Of course, whoever invented this will lead you to believe they were the first to create a toy-slash-taco holder. Chances are they never killed three tacos from the taquero on the corner and used the aluminum foil they were housed in to create a foil ball. That counts as a toy.

But what if your children don’t like dinosaurs, you may ask. Well, no need to worry! You can also purchase the amazing TACO TRUCK.


Available in super bright green and orange to distract everyone from noticing one of those tacos has olives. ?

What if you have a large family, and a TriceraTACO and TACO TRUCK are just not enough? Well, believe it or not, you can buy these taco holders in BULK!


This is perfect for every family gathering and party! Now you will never have to stress about running out of taco holders!

Since these taco holders are a bit on the expensive side, there are also DIY taco holders that you can make yourself at home.

Viral Video Of Overworked Texas Dominos Workers Burdened By Snow Storm Goes Viral

Viral Video Of Overworked Texas Dominos Workers Burdened By Snow Storm Goes Viral

Texas’s current power crisis from a devastating storm has disrupted power generation and frozen natural gas pipelines. The is historic storm has driven electric demand higher than the state has ever seen, but it’s not just electric energy being overextended as a result. It’s physical and mental human energy as well.

Recently, an image of two exhausted Domino’s Pizza workers went viral for showing the extreme exhaustion workers are experiencing.

In a post shared to News4sanantonio.com’s Chime In page a user by the name of July DeLuna explained “This Dominos in San Antonio. Working during this crisis. They had a weekend worth of food and it was gone within 4 hours. This team helped those that needed help. These are the essential workers that need recognition. They were the only pizza place open. Every pizza place was closed but dominos stayed open to help those in need.”

Little else is known about the exhausted workers in the viral image but it did rack up over 8K comments within hours of being posted.

“Dominoes better pay them for the shifts they’ll miss while they don’t have any ingredients. With this practical free advertising it’s the least they could do. Otherwise these kind people worked themselves out of already bad hourly pay,” one user commented.

“,As someone who works in the food service industry, the thought of selling out of all product in only four hours and how much work goes in to preparing that much food is unfathomable levels of nightmare fuel,” another noted.

In another response to the image, a Reddit user wrote “I cannot express to you how upsetting it is to be the only food source open during hard times, to still be open and show up to do your job with higher than normal levels of orders, and still get yelled at by management for not having orders out within a window of time.”

Images of overworked and stressed is nothing new of course.

Fast-food workers are often burdened by their field’s daily challenges. In 2020, food industry workers are being forced to endure customer abuse at even higher rates. Last year a TikTok video of a Subway restaurant falling asleep while in the middle of making a sandwich went viral.

“This is actually really sad. I can’t imagine how underslept she is. Not to mention the wage people get paid at Subway… She deserves better,” one TikTok user by the name of Monique Emilia commented at the time. The skincare influencer Hyram also commented writing “Poor thing… Can’t imagine how underslept she is, we’re too hard on service workers.”

CDC Warns Of Listeria Outbreak Linked To ‘Hispanic-Style’ Cheeses

CDC Warns Of Listeria Outbreak Linked To ‘Hispanic-Style’ Cheeses

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is warning everyone against “Hispanic-style” cheeses linked to a listeria outbreak. The latest food outbreak is attacking one of the most sacred things in our diets and people have a lot of opinions.

Listeria has been detected in “Hispanic-style” cheeses, according to the CDC.

According to a warning from the CDC, listeria has been detected in what they are calling “Hispanic-style” cheeses. This means that people should avoid queso fresco and queso blanco. The source of the outbreak is being tracked and there is some understanding about where the outbreak is coming from.

The CDC recommends that people avoid these cheeses right now and to make sure that the cheeses they buy are made from “pasteurized milk.” Listeria is a serious illness for the elderly, people who are immunocompromised, and pregnant people.

The CDC reports that Connecticut officials have found Listeria in some El Abuelito queso fresco. The cheese was purchased from a supermarket in the area where a patient purchased “Hispanic-style” cheese. The outbreak seems to be concentrated in the Northeastern United States and has impacted four states.

Seven people have been hospitalized because of the Listeria outbreak.

The announcement is a very personal attack for a lot of people. Queso fresco and queso blanco are very important for a lot of dishes in our cuisine and to go without, during Lent and Covid, is asking a lot of us.

People are kind of irked that the CDC didn’t use a different phrase to talk about the cheese.

We get that technically the cheese is in Spanish and that it is more commonly used in Latino food. However, the cheeses have names that can be used. Sure, there was no idea of the brand but would it really be that hard to say “queso fresco and queso blanco”?

At least it would have prevented other people from having to answer other people’s questions.

It’s called efficiency. Some news outlets were sharing images of yellow queso dip because it is also technically a “Hispanic-style” cheese but it not the cheese in question.
