Now, the Biscuit taco and I may have a past fraught with tension, but even I recognize that the call of free Biscuit tacos (your choice of sausage or bacon) is too strong to resist.

From 7 a.m. until 11 a.m. on Cinco de Mayo (May 5), whether you’re at the drive-thru or ordering at the counter (do people still do that?), that free Biscuit taco is yours. Incidentally, this type of food is the perfect way to start building a fortress in your stomach to protect it from the onslaught of Cinco de Mayo merriment that May or May (get it?) not come later in the day.
(I’m sorry, I had to.)
Taco Bell announced the giveaway on Periscope, the hot new video live-streaming social media app. This seems to be part of the chain’s recent campaign to appear cooler than its traditional fast-food breakfast counterparts — Taco Bell is hip to the coolest technology, OK? Forget Facebook; Taco Bell knows what the kids are into these days.

It even has a weirdly intense new video about how its breakfast is the key to personal liberty or something. I mean, you’re still getting your breakfast from a huge, multinational corporation that grossed more than $13 billion in revenues in 2014, but I guess since there’s no “Mc” preceding Biscuit taco, that means you’re actually on the path to self-actualization every time you eat one.
But I digress. We’re here to celebrate free breakfast, and I think we can all agree that a $0 Biscuit taco on Cinco de Mayo is good for everyone. Head to your local Taco Bell between 7 a.m. and 11 a.m. on the 5th to take advantage of this tasty breakfast offer. Even if the Biscuit taco isn’t actually a taco.
