Unlike hamburgers and hot dogs, which are served on a bun, Taco bell serves tortillas and burritos served on a corn shell and sometimes a flour tortilla; however, never on a bun. Taco Bell also wants consumers to go from ‘food is just food’ point of view to seeing food as more of an experience and a lifestyle choice. ‘Think outside the bun’ accomplishes both these things.
