The Bomb Burrito Review: More Info Than You Wanted to Know

An HOA meeting went later than planned and most restaurants were closed. So I stopped at QuikTrip to refuel. Going through the food and the roller grill, I saw The bomb burrito. The microwaveable meal is something I literally haven’t had since college or sober.

Part of me wants to say they were 99 cents about twenty years ago, but I can’t even remember what I had for dinner two days ago. Fast forward to the present day and they were $3.79 each. There were only two flavors available, beef, bean and cheese sauce with green chili and one with red chili. I picked them both up.

The Bomb Burrito is brought to you by Don Miguel, who has been tradition and taste since 1908. Rumor has it that the Bomb Burrito contains enough preservatives that some burritos still available for purchase were actually made in 1908.

Coming in at 3/4 lbs, the instructions were simple. Open one end of the package and leave the thawed burrito inside. You then put the burrito in the microwave for one minute, flip and heat for another minute, then flip and heat for another 30 seconds.

The only caveat on the packaging says, the content is going to be hot!

I must add another caveat, contents may be edible.

When I took the first burrito out of the microwave, there was a big goo sticking out the side, which I wasn’t sure if foreshadowed what I was going to see in 30 minutes.

I finished the burrito, looked at my plate and wasn’t sure if it was more of a foreshadowing of what my toilet paper would look like.

Like any bad college relationship, I wanted more punishment and came back for more. So, I atomized the second burrito and immediately regretted the decision.

Regret, however, didn’t stop me from continuing dinner simply for the science, aka, the blog.

I have to admit, these tasted much better after a 12-pack of Miller High Life, regrettable shots of cheap tequila on the back porch of my frat house, or after beer from the dodgy taps at Tanners Bar & Grill. . Nostalgia told me it was great, but reality told me it was garbage.

After I finished both, I could feel them swimming around my stomach with the gas coming in. I literally slept on the couch just to protect my loved ones. For a second, I considered sleeping outside. According to the National Fire Protection Association, an estimated average of 4,200 residential structure fires per year started with the ignition of natural gas. I wanted to avoid making 4,201.

Someone will probably ask if the green chili or red chili burrito is better. Honestly, I couldn’t tell the difference. What I could say is that the tradition and taste in 1908 was horrible. I feel bad for our ancestors.

It was a waste of 1,680 calories and probably cost me a year of my life. 24 hours later and I still haven’t used the restroom.

Good meal,
Tourbillon
