Would be better if it were a real taco.
on February 20, 2012
Someone FINALLY made a pouch that looks like a taco. If you are like me, then you've been waiting for this your entire life. Your. Entire. Life. As in, the whole thing. If you are like me, then you've spent years wondering, how can I express my bottomless love of tacos and, at the same time, keep my small objects in one place? If you are like me, then you also have finely chiseled features, a badass haircut, and two fists of steel named Thunder and Lightning. (Lightning's the one on the right.)
This pouch looks EXACTLY like a taco, if a taco were made out of a poly-cotton blend and had a zipper and a keychain ring. I actually saw it on a table and said, whoa this looks JUST LIKE a taco pouch! And I said to myself, I MUST HAVE THIS and my friend said, YES YOU MUST HAVE IT, actually, just take it--I got it as a gift and I was going to throw it out. Turns out, he doesn't like tacos. That's not code for anything.
So I took it home and I put it on my kitchen table and NO ONE was fooled that it was NOT a real taco. This is because I live by myself. There's no one to fool. My mother thinks this is a cause for concern and that I'll never get married or make babies, but that is a subject for a different Amazon review.
The taco pouch appears to be of the beef or maybe chicken variety. There's also cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, and what might be guacamole. It is a very authentic taco pouch, exactly how you'd find it in Mexico. Unfortunately, I don't like guacamole and you cannot get this taco pouch without it. Yes, you read that correctly, I don't like guacamole.
Also, there is no vegetarian option. Vegetarians should get the peanut butter and jelly sandwich pouch.
One drawback: the zipper is chintzy. I know on a taco you would expect to find a real heavy duty YKK zipper. That is not the case. So if you want to carry your extensive collection of lead weights in this taco pouch, the zipper will not be able to handle it.
Another drawback: the fabric is a bit thin. It will most likely tear quickly, especially if you keep knives in it.
I do like the keychain ring. Because there's nothing more convenient than having a taco pouch on the end of your car keys. I also like that it does not smell like tacos. That is not code for anything.
One reviewer said to put a real taco inside this taco pouch. The reviewer was joking, but I can now confirm that this won't work. So now I am keeping cables in it. I realize this is very uninteresting but it does the job. Now all my phone cables are in one place, tangled together like one big gigantic iDreadlock.
