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.

Taco Bell Is Celebrating The ‘Taco Moon’ With A Free Taco Giveaway Around The World

Taco Bell Is Celebrating The ‘Taco Moon’ With A Free Taco Giveaway Around The World

We’re only a few months into 2021 and we’ve already seen several special moons. We’ve had the “wolf moon,” the “snow moon” and even the “pink moon,” but the next moon may be the tastiest one yet.

In what maybe one of the best marketing campaigns in a generation, Taco Bell recently announced its plans to take over the night sky on May 4 during the crescent moon phase with its very own “taco moon.” And people around the world will be able to celebrate.

Taco Bell announces free giveaway to celebrate the upcoming ‘Taco Moon.’

“On May 4, the world’s largest and brightest object in the night sky will resemble a favorite indulgence, the taco — a new lunar phase* we are affectionately calling the ‘Taco Moon,'” the company shared in a statement.

It added that important asterisk to note while Taco Bell “does not claim to own copyrights to a lunar phase of the moon,” it “stands behind the fact this really does look like a Taco Bell taco.”

And, when the Taco Moon arrives on May 4, hungry fans in the U.S. craving a treat can score a free Crunchy Taco between 8-11:59 p.m. in-store or all day through the app or online.

Fans will need to head to their local Taco Bell restaurant and simply mention the ‘Taco Moon’ or say ‘I saw the Taco Moon’ to claim a free Crunchy Taco Supreme. This fan-fave Taco features a crunchy shell filled with seasoned beef, sour cream, fresh lettuce, tomato, and cheese. No stress for vegetarian taco-lovers, the Taco Supreme can also be made with black beans.

To help keep track of the special lunar phase, Taco Bell even released a helpful chart.

And Americans aren’t the only ones who can score a freebie. Some international locations are getting in on the action, too.

“Taco Bell has been an established brand in the U.S. for nearly 60 years and we are thrilled by the accelerating fandom we’re seeing globally,” Julie Felss Masino, president of Taco Bell, International, shared. “As we’re opening more and more restaurants internationally, we know the May 4 moon will take us to new ‘heights’ as we introduce ourselves to new future fans in a delicious way.”

Participating Taco Bell restaurants include some locations in the United Kingdom, Australia, India, Costa Rica, Guatemala, and Puerto Rico, however, in those markets, guests will get a local favorite like a free Crunchy Taco with the purchase of a beverage in Guatemala and the option of a free black bean or seasoned chicken Crunchy Taco in India.

Family Of Man Who Died From Taco Eating Contest Sue Fresno Grizzlies Owner

Dana Hutchings, 41, entered a taco eating contest during a Fresno Grizzlies game in 2019. He choked and died during the contest and now his son has filed a lawsuit against the baseball team.

The son of a man who died from a taco eating contest is suing for wrongful death.

Dana Hutchings, 41, died after choking during a taco eating contest during a Fresno Grizzlies game. His son has filed a wrongful death lawsuit claiming that the event organizers were not equipped to host the event. Furthermore, the lawsuit claims that the organizers failed to provide a medical response team.

“People say all the time he knew what he was getting into, well clearly he didn’t,” Martin Taleisnik, an attorney representing Hutchings’ son, Marshall told CBS17.

Marshall and his attorney are pushing back at the notion that Dana should have known better.

People have sounded off on social media criticizing the family for filing the lawsuit. Yet, the family and their attorney are calling attention to the lack of information given to contestants.

“If you don’t know all the pitfalls, how can you truly be consenting and participating freely and voluntarily? It’s a risk that resulted in a major loss to Marshall,” Taleisnik told CBS17.

Dana’s family is seeking a monetary settlement from the Fresno Grizzlies owners.

The wrongful death lawsuit names Fresno Sports and Events as the responsible party. The lawsuit also notes that alcohol was made available to contestants and added to the likelihood of the tragedy.

“We are devastated to learn that the fan that received medical attention following an event at Tuesday evening’s game has passed away. The Fresno Grizzlies extend our heartfelt prayers and condolences to the family of Mr. Hutchings,” a statement from the Fresno Grizzlies read after the death in 2019. “The safety and security of our fans is our highest priority. We will work closely with local authorities and provide any helpful information that is requested.”
