Fun TACO Facts

  • The hard-shell taco was invented long before Taco Bell, a discovery that would aid their expansion across North America. The U-shaped version is first noted in 1949 in a cookbook by Fabiola Cabeza de Vaca Gilbert. Since then, the taco has been shared and loved by Americans.


  • Thought Taco Trucks were new? One of the first taco trucks started in New York in 1966 when two New York housewives operated an early version of the taco truck. Although the truck did not have a full kitchen, it was available for catering.


  • Last year Americans ate over 4.5 billion tacos! That’s 490,000 miles of tacos, which could take you to the moon and back or, if you prefer, could, at 775-million pounds, equal the weight of two Empire State Buildings.
