Available all day this Monday, 4th October, customers can text the taco emoji to Taco Bell in exchange for a free taco with their choice of filling – for absolutely free
If you weren’t already aware, today is International Taco Day – and to celebrate, Taco Bell are giving customers a chance to get their hands on a free taco.
Available all day this Monday, 4th October, taco fans can claim a free Crunchy Taco by simply seeing a WhatsApp message of the taco emoji from their phone to http://ta.co/UK.
Each texter can then head to one of the 71 UK Taco Bell restaurants nationwide and exchange their taco emoji text for a real-life taco.
Customers will be able to enjoy their choice of filling, whether it’s the delicious seasoned beef or black beans, topped with cheddar cheese and freshly chopped lettuce in a hard shell corn tortilla.
How cool is that?
For any eager taco fans in London, the first 100 to visit the London Baker Street restaurant, will receive their free Crunchy Taco from none other than YouTuber and social media favourite, Chunkz. The Beta Squad star will be behind the counter swapping taco emojis for delicious Crunchy tacos.
Gino Casciani, General Manager for Taco Bell UK & Europe said: “National Taco Day is an exciting date in the diary for taco fans around the world and we wanted to celebrate the annual event by offering people across the UK the chance to try a taco for free in a fun and unique way. Whether you consider yourself a taco connoisseur or new to the taco scene, make sure to text the taco emoji on the 4th October to transform your emoji into a real mouth-watering one!”
Taco Bell successfully brought the taco emoji to the masses in 2015 through a petition that received more than 33,000 signatures urging the Unicode Consortium to include the emoji on smartphones.
With billions of people around the world now with tacos on their phones, Taco Bell wants to give everyone in the UK who may have never tried a taco the opportunity to taste one for themselves.
