How Much Taco Bell Can You Afford? There’s an App for That!
And the winner of the 2014 Nobel Peace Prize goes to…Kunal Batra Kunal Batra is a web developer who put together a program that tells you how much Taco Bell you can afford with the amount of money you have. All you have to do is email firstname.lastname@example.org with the amount of money you have in your pocket, and it’ll respond back with what items you can get (put put the dollar amount in the subject line and you’re good). Here’s the kicker, it takes FOREVER! Stafani and I tried this earlier and it took about 45 minutes to get a response. I emailed them saying I had $3.75 in my pocket and here was the response:
TacoBell Items to Purchase.
| Name | Cost | Calories|
Chicken Burrito | 1.59 | 400.0 |
Bean Burrito | 1.09 | 370.0 |
Cheesy Nachos | 0.99 | 280.0 |
Total Cost for Max Calories within your Budget:
Total Calories for your Budget:1050.0
Pretty cool, huh? The downside is that it takes awhile, so shoot them the email about an hour before you plan on eating.
