Taco Bell has announced it will be giving away free Crunchy Tacos to customers every Tuesday in August and they’ll be available via the app.
The coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic may have brought a lot of doom and gloom with it, but the ever-popular Mexican-inspired fast food chain – with a Manchester city centre branch on Deansgate that is currently open for dine-in, takeaway and delivery – is about to make August that little bit better.
Taco Bell UK is offering customers the chance to grab a Crunchy Taco for free every Tuesday next month and all you’ll need to do is download the app and register an account. Once registered, you can select the offer to redeem a voucher and then you’ll just need to show the voucher to a staff member when ordering your food.
This offer is limited to one taco per person, but you can claim it once every Tuesday throughout August.
Customers can choose from four fillings for their taco, including seasoned beef, shredded chicken, grilled chicken or black beans, which is then topped with crispy lettuce and cheddar cheese.
The Taco Bell app is available to download on all Apple and Android services/devices.
It also allows customers to order ahead on the app to skip the queues, collect/accumulate points and redeem rewards all year round.

This is our way of thanking our fans for coming together during such a difficult time and prevailing together as a nation.”
In addition to giving away thousands of delicious tacos for free, Taco Bell has also committed to a substantial cash donation to the NHS to thank them for their crucial hard work and dedication during the pandemic.
This contribution is part of the brand’s continued showing their appreciation to the UK’s frontline heroes and comes after it previously announced that, upon re-opening with a new set of safety standards on 17th April, it would began providing free food to local NHS heroes.

The COVID-19 pandemic may have taken its toll on industries of all shapes and sizes over these past few months, but supporting local/independent business has never been more important than it is right now.

Video of Chelsea fan claiming ‘Haaland will not live up to the expectation’ comes back to bite him
A video of a Chelsea supporter expressing his doubts over whether Manchester City striker Erling Haaland will “live up to the expectation” is doing the rounds again and it’s absolutely priceless.
Blues fan and YouTuber Rory Jennings appeared on Sky Sport’s Saturday Social show back in August, just a couple of months after City signed the frightening forward from German side Borussia Dortmund.
Though it went viral at the time, with most fans finding his assumption that Haaland stood no chance of winning the golden boot laughable, it’s enjoying an even more hilarious half-life now the Norwegian has put up the kind of numbers he has.
Jennings said at the time that he was “so bored” of the discussion and excitement, insisting that the 22-year-old striker “isn’t the player everyone thinks he is” and to suggest he could win the personal accolade in his debut season was “outrageous”.
An often divisive commentator and content creator who regularly appears on ‘True Geordie’s watchalong show, The Kick Off (where he has also had numerous viral moments), he even went on to say that the mere notion was “disrespectful” to players like Harry Kane and Mo Salah.
Rubbishing the possibility as a “ridiculous achievement”, he simply declared that Haaland “isn’t going to do it”. Well, this is awkward…
Not only is City’s new number nine already the top scorer in the Premier League with 14 but he also has double the amount of the second highest-scorer in Harry Kane after just eight games. Ridiculous indeed, Rory.
Moreover, despite Jennings claiming that he is “wasteful” in front of goal at times and lacks the “build-up play” to play in Pep Guardiola’s side, Haaland has the most efficient strike rate of any player in Europe right now, averaging 1.89 goals per 90 minutes in the league alone.
Oh, and he’s also chipped in with three assists on top of that.
It’s safe to say that Rory received a fair bit of grief after his bold claim, to the point that even he had to hold his hands up and record an ‘apology’ video.
We can only applaud journalist and co-host Ade Oladipo for being less smug than we would have been in this situation.
To make things even more hilarious, Haaland had scored six when he made this video around two months ago. He is now one goal away from the YouTuber’s initial prediction of 15 in the league and has already netted 17 in all competitions. Yikes.
City are currently second in the league with a whopping goal difference of +20 — nearly three-quarters of you can basically credit to just Haaland.
Don’t think you’ll find anyone tipping Kane, Salah or Son for the golden boot now, do you?
Phil Foden’s bond with elderly City fan with dementia only gets more wholesome
Among the City fans flying high after the Manchester derby, 84-year-old Barry Carr was undoubtedly one those most bowled over on the day, as he was once again invited to Phil Foden‘s box to watch the game.
As you can see, Barry was invited back to watch the derby and treated to a 6-3 blockbuster, where he got to spend more time with Foden as well as meet ex-player turned pundit, Micah Richards.
One of our favourite bits is him referring to Erling Haaland as “the big one”. You’re not wrong there, Barry!
The lifelong fan City fan was over the moon with the result and even more excited when he realised his favourite Foden had netted a hattrick against against their historic rivals.
Following the game, the two shared a lovely embrace and spoke about the game, with Foden describing his game as a “dream come true”. We dare say Barry felt the same.
We’re not crying, you are…
While he struggles with his memory, most of his years spent watching City vs United would have been quite different, as the blue half of Manchester were long-considered ‘the noisy neighbours’. Safe to say things have changed significantly over the past decade.
