Are you even in sales?

We are big taco fans in my house but we always have this fight when it’s time to cook. Sell me on what’s better and why.

What’s better

Hard to stuff a wrapped up crunchy taco in your pocket for a little post/mid meeting snack!  Soft all the way

Crunchy is much easier to pull off if you have a purse ;)

It depends on what you are putting inside. Just like in sales, step 1 is to qualify and understand the situation and use case!

If I see someone eating a crunchy fish taco, I may have a stroke. Anything seafood = Soft. 

If you are going authentic (carnitas, onions, cilantro) = definitely soft. The real debate there becomes corn or flour tortillas.

If you are going Americanized (taco meat, beans, cheese, etc) = Crunchy is the way to go. 

If I do fast food (taco bell), I normally do crunchy with a side of Pepto. The soft tacos tend to get soggy when not immediately consumed.

Soft tacos are easier to eat while you're driving.

Not that I'm promoting distracted driving or anything 😏

Driving with my knee so I can pour hot sauce is a special skill.

Standard is a burrito-sized, soft flour tortilla. Fold the ends in and wrap it up to keep all the contents in. Good for kids. 

Now. If I’m going all out, I’m making my own Double-decker style taco. Best of both worlds. I wept when Taco Bell discontinued them from their menu.

Same. I found a restaurant by my house that sells double deckers, and they rock. Absolutely game changing.

Dude, make the perfect taco in a hard shell............thats it, fucking leave it there, cause it wont make it. Spill, crack, drop, no way it stays in tact to enjoy like the soft one.

Why limit yourself? Put some cheese on the soft shell, let her melt, and add a hardshell. Best of every world.

When you are on a Zoom Call it is easier to eat the soft shells, especially when the moderator takes you off Mute.

Crunchy or soft shell. It doesn't matter to me so long as it's a corn tortilla.

I can't get over the taste of Pino Beans Crunchy shell. It's just the next level. You don't know what you are losing you unless tried

First off, I’m not in “sales” , I’m on the phone in the fucking trenches like I drafted my own damn self and love every gruesome moment of it. Finally, crunchy tacos make you feel alive and remind you that life takes work and grit and you chew and fight to swallow OR choke and die. Soft tacos are for the vag that wants the easy way out and can’t crunch his way through any call objection pitch or rejection. So umm yeah there it is. No soft tacos in my house. In fact no one eats anything til they close a deal. Too dramatic? Fuck no sell something.

Can we not have both? The Soft shell has all of the sauce and wraps around the hard shell with all of the goods. You get the crunch without the mess!
