Taco Bell is giving its customers a free Crunchy Taco this week so if you fancy swapping your usual lunch option, now’s the ideal time to try something new.

Until 2.01pm on Sunday May 15, between 12pm and 2pm each day you can get your hands on a free Seasoned Beef or Black Bean Crunchy Taco instead of paying the usual £1.29.

All 95 UK Taco Bell restaurants are offering customers the free taco while stocks last and you don’t need to make a purchase to qualify.

It’s only available when dining in or taking out but can’t be claimed when using click or collect or delivery.

The Taco Swap Campaign has been set up to encourage the nation to have more exciting lunchtime meals.

Taco Bell has even gone to the trouble of creating a Taco Swap Chrome extension which means you can hack your friend’s lunchtime decision making with some not-so-subtle messages.

The new technology created by the brand means you can swap any image online into a taco.

The Taco Swap internet Taco-ver can be downloaded via the Google Chrome Store and you’ll be able to swap any image online to a picture or gif of crunchy tacos, making it difficult for your friends to resist a taco lunch.

All you need to do is add the extension to Chrome and type ‘taco’ anywhere on the screen on any website.

It’ll also detect phrases such as ‘meal deal,’ ‘sandwich’ or ‘salad’ and swap the images on the screen too.

Taco Bell encourages you to share your Taco-ver via social media with the hashtag #TacoSwap.

“Following the success of our first-ever global marketing campaign last May, we’re excited to build on this momentum with the hope of giving consumers another reason to consider Taco Bell as their mealtime go-to,” says Gino Casciani, General Manager for Taco Bell UK & Europe.

Gino added: “In true Taco Bell fashion, our hope is that Taco Swap brings our customers in for a crunchy, craveable taco when they’re looking to break free from the everyday.”

Terms and conditions of the free taco offer as well as a Taco Bell store locator can be found via the Taco Bell website.
