Explanation/ Where to Buy Taco Snacks

Hello, Taco Snack lovers! I'm blown away by the response this [stupid fucking] LiveJournal community has received over the last decade, so I thought I should explain the origin of this webpage.

Back in 2003, my friend Matt (mwuck) and I were juniors in high school. Like [apparently] many high schoolers, we fell in love with a greasy, processed treat known as "Taco Snacks," and eventually developed a fandom to the point where we wanted to create a LiveJournal so just the two of us could post photos of them, talk about how amazing they are, and review ones we've eaten (ah, the banality of high school).

Right when I started the community, my digital camera broke, so I couldn't style the page with Taco Snack photos and logos. I went through all kinds of drama getting that damn camera fixed (back then, nobody had camera phones... we were all rocking Nokia 3390s). Eventually, I got my camera fixed and was able to take the background photo and icon you see today. I started reviewing Taco Snacks, but Matt didn't have Internet access at the time so it wasn't that exciting.

In 2004, we graduated high school and we've been craving Taco Snacks ever since. Over the years, more and more people are Googling "taco snacks," trying to figure out where they can buy them, then they stumble across this community and ask if anyone knows. For a long time, this page was the top Google result for "taco snacks."

Thanks to someone's comment in this community, we now know that the company that distributes them, ConAgra Foods, does not sell Taco Snacks in retail stores. In order to get your hands on a Taco Snack, you need to go to this website and order a case of 96 burritos for $91 to $138: http://www.foodservicedirect.com/product.cfm/p/137061/Conagra-Fernandos-Taco-Burrito-Snack-5.75-Ounce.html

At this point in time, the best strategy is to find a couple of friends who are willing to split the cost of the 63lb package. If anyone has successfully ordered, please share your story, and better yet, please link to some photos!

Happy snacking!
