Taco Bell will give a free Doritos Locos Taco to customers at Hurricane Sandy-affected franchises in the northeast region. The offer is only good today from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m.
The offer is the result of the Taco Bell restaurant chain's “Steal A Base, Steal A Taco” promotion which occurred during the 2012 Major League Baseball World Series.
Taco Bell pledged to offer a free Doritos Taco - currently the most popular item on its menu - to every one of its customers in the United States should any player during the World Series steal a base.
On October 30, during the bottom of the eighth inning of Game 2, San Francisco Giants’ outfielder Angel Pagan stole second base - effectively scoring free Doritos® Locos Tacos for America.
However, while much of the nation was chowing down on free tacos, residents in the northeast affected by superstorm Hurricane Sandy were unable to take advantage of this national promotion because many of the Taco Bell restaurants in that region of the country were closed for safety reasons or damaged.
In a press release at the time of the Hurricane Sandy crisis that gripped the northeast, Taco Bell told residents in that region of the nation that it would be difficult for the franchise to fulfill the promotion there but not to worry because the restaurant chain still planned to honor the deal in areas hit by Sandy at a later date.
Today is that day.
According to the Taco Bell official website, anyone living in the northeastern states of New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia and West Virginia can walk into any of its Sandy affected franchises and request a free Doritos® Locos Taco.
No purchase necessary.
The Doritos Tacos is a new and popular addition to the menu of the Taco Bell chain.
The restaurant describes the menu item favorite “a crunchy taco made with crisp lettuce, real cheddar cheese and premium seasoned beef, in a shell made from Nacho Cheese Doritos® Chips.”
The offer is only good today from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. at participating franchises affected by superstorm Sandy.
