NEW CHIPOTLE BURRITO and where to get it

In probably the most food-consciously satisfying news to come along since it was discovered that Bacos are 100 percent vegan, PETA2 (PETA’s tubular teen branch) announced last week it has named Chipotle as the Best Fast Food Chain.

Chipotle won the Libby Award (short for “liberation”) for its dedication to sustainable farm practices, commitment to serving only humanely raised meats, and extremely veg- and vegan-friendly menu. This is fantastic news because: A) Chipotle is unfailingly delicious and satisfying, so much so that I (and others) have been known to order two burritos at once with the intention of saving one for dinner, only to take both to the head in under an hour; and B) Our love of it is doubly justified when you can actually feel decent about the company and products you are supporting, with their damn ethics and everything. The PETA2 press release dropped some news about a new roasted vegetable, all-vegan burrito the company is testing out.

The restaurant also recently introduced a vegan “Garden Blend” burrito, which features vegan chicken, grains, and marinated vegetables and is available at select locations in New York City and Washington, D.C.

So, seeing as Inverted Soapbox has been dabbling in dairy reduction of late, we decided to do some reporting to find out where to find this neorrito. Answer, via Shannon Kyllo, Chipotle marketing consultant:

Currently, we are just testing Garden Blend at our DuPont Circle location in Washington D.C. and our Chelsea West location in New York. Those are the only two locations we are testing this in right now, but we hope all goes well so we may offer it in all of our restaurants.

Say it with me now: NEW CHIPOTLE BURRITO. Remember in The Wizard where they unveil A NEW GAME!! and it’s Super Mario 3? Excitement is parallel. Continue reading

PETA’s ad banned; Cash4gold still OK

Are you kidding me? This is the PETA ad NBC banned from the Superbowl:

The NSFW reasons why:

  • licking pumpkin
  • touching her breast with her hand while eating broccoli
  • pumpkin from behind between legs
  • rubbing pelvic region with pumpkin
  • screwing herself with broccoli (fuzzy)
  • asparagus on her lap appearing as if it is ready to be inserted into vagina
  • licking eggplant
  • rubbing asparagus on breast

Read the full letter here (pdf)

To summarize the list of Superbowl standards:

Eating veggies and having great sex*: unacceptable

Eating hamburgers and drinking beer that leads to fat, bloaty sex: acceptable

(seriously, this McDonald’s one is less racy, but still the same thing, implying that a waft of fragrant cheese and meat will save your boring, loveless marriage)

Erectile dysfunction ad full of innuendo: fine

.05 seconds of a naked breast that may have helped some poor old man’s E.D.: not fine

Two hours of 22 men running over each other and gloating about it: sports!

30 seconds of political advocacy: that’s not sports!

anthropomorphic frogs: OK

anthropomorphic MC Hammer: also OK, apparently.

* Hey, and guess what- that ad?. It happens to be true. Believe it.
