Taco Bell treats Bethel to tacos
On the Y-K Delta
The fast food restaurant franchise Taco Bell turned a hoax into a taco party for Bethel. The hoax came the second week of June in the form of flyers posted around Bethel saying that a Taco Bell franchise was coming to Bethel. Investigation by KYUK reveled that the flyers were a hoax. But the news spread quickly throughout the state, and on to Taco Bell headquarters. Taco Bell executives heard the reports and decided to treat Bethel to 10,000 tacos.
On July 1 a Taco Bell franchise in Anchorage flew a truck full of tacos to Bethel, then transported the truck to the cultural center by helicopter where 600 people waited for the treat, according to mudflats.net.
