$70 For Discontinued Taco Bell Potato Soft Tacos?!


$70 for a frozen taco?!

Bryant Hoban from O'Fallon, Missouri, just sold 2 of the 3 Potato Soft Tacos that he had in his freezer. They have been there since Taco Bell discontinued them and a ton of other menu items in July. Bryant sold them on Facebook Marketplace for $70 each. You can click here and see the listing.

Bryant told Riverfront Times he did it as an experiment for "investment sandwiches", where he's going to buy a bunch of limited-run items from restaurants and sell them down the road. "You know, like the McRib — McDonald's only offers it once a year, but the demand doesn't go away. So then when I heard Taco Bell was discontinuing the Potato Soft, I decided it'd be a good opportunity to test this idea out before McRib season."

On one hand, it's completely ridiculous. On the other, if suckers people are willing to pay $70 for one Potato Soft Taco, why not sell other limited edition foods for profit.
