Does the New Taco Bell $1 Cravings Menu Look Awesome or Awful?

Aug 18 2014 - 1:00pm

To anticipate today's release of the new $1 Cravings Menu [1], Taco Bell released Snapchat images [2] on Friday. But it didn't take long before the Internet began ridiculing the company for its failed attempt to create amateurish food porn. The Snapchat images offer little in terms of emotional pull, hilarious action, or memorable moments. Instead of partygoers getting their midnight drunchies on, the Snapchats are of droopy, poorly lit fast-food items set against a stark white background. The company was going for a nonchalant, realistic look and instead elicited Grumpy Cat [3] reflexes from many. To make up for the overwhelmingly bad responses, Taco Bell tweeted out a new, high-res image of the menu [4]. This time, the image is obviously staged with better lighting and more colorful presentation. Take a glance at the new image along with close-ups of each of the menu items, and weigh in on whether you think they look awesome or awful.
