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.
Gino Casciani, Regional Director at Taco Bell Europe, said: “Our brand is all about treating our fans with unexpected good, and what better way to do that than with free tacos. 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.

Kirstie Allsopp threw a banana skin at a driver in Stockport in littering row
TV personality Kirstie Allsopp has admitted that she threw a banana skin at a driver in Stockport after she caught them littering.
In a furious rant on Twitter, the Location, Location, Location star said that she ‘leapt out of the car’ in order to pick up the fruity peel that was thrown out of another car window.
She then lobbed it straight back into the car, at the littering offender.
Saying that she’s been ‘horrified’ by the state of litter across the UK, Kirstie detailed the incident from her visit to Stockport.
Kirstie said: “In the last few weeks, travelling around the UK, I’ve been horrified by how bad roadside litter has become. Why is litter so much worse, who thinks chucking an empty red bull, for example, out of a moving car is acceptable?
“Last week in Stockport a banana skin flew out of the window of the car in front, we were at [traffic lights] and I was a passenger so I leapt out of the car, picked it up and threw it back into the car, the driver just threw it back out again.
“But that’s not how to solve the problem. What is the solution…… £££ fines? In some places police take litter very seriously, I don’t feel that in the UK though. Closing roads to clear the litter? This would inconvenience us all, but would be a reminder of the cost of litter. Asking roadside landowners to clear their patch? What do you think?”
She later added: “I have a pet theory on this, I think a lot of litter is guilty eating, people consuming things they know they shouldn’t, and not wanting to dispose of the evidence at home.”
One fan replied to her: “Ohh you have been to my neck of the woods i have wrote to Stockport Council several times about cleaning all this litter up and there answer was ‘yes we are rotared to do a clear up in May’, i said ‘how about every month’, they replied ‘we do a clear up once a year only’. I just laughed.”
Yes, it’s true – in what is news that admittedly sounds fake, but somehow actually isn’t, one of the best rappers of all time has revealed himself to be an avid watcher of Britain’s longest-running soap, and is such a fan of it, in fact, that he said he’s “determined” to make an appearance on it sometime in the future.
The iconic ITV soap – which is set in the fictional Manchester suburb of Weatherfield, and celebrated an impressive 60 years of entertaining the masses back in 2020 – currently averages around six million viewers per episode, and has developed a well-deserved legion of loyal fans over the last six decades.
And it turns out, one of those loyal fans is chart-topping rap superstar Snoop Dogg.
“Coronation Street, I love it,” the 17-time Grammy Award nominee admitted.
“If they call me I’ll do it. I’ll play whenever they need. I love the cinematography, acting, the storylines and just the reality.
“I’d like to be a part of it because they’ve been a part of my culture.”
As bizarre as it all sounds, this surprisingly isn’t the first time the rapper – whose real name is Calvin Broadus Jr – has publicly revealed he’s a fan of the soap, and even famously admitted all the way back in 2010 that he had his agent get in touch with ITV to see if there was any chance he could make an appearance.
“I had my agent reach out to them to see if they could try to get me on and they said they were interested so hopefully it might happen,” Snoop told the BBC.
“It would be perfect for me to be on the show.”
The Drop It Like It’s Hot and The Next Episode rapper isn’t the only famous name who’s revealed himself to be a fan of Coronation Street in recent months.
One of the greatest and most well-respected singer songwriters of all time, Bob Dylan, also admitted in an interview with WSJ back in December 2022 that he loves binge-watching the soap.
