Meatless Tacos Are . . . OK

I had lunch at Del Taco today, so I decided to try one of their Beyond tacos, made with Beyond synthetic beef. My verdict: I think they made it a little spicier to cover up the flavor of Beyond’s “plant-based meat,” but the result was adequate. I don’t think it would win any blind taste tests, but it was fine—and I say that as a confirmed meat-aholic.


We recently wrapped up the crowdfunding campaign for our ambitious Mother Jones Corruption Project, and it was a smashing success. About 10,364 readers pitched in with donations averaging $45, and together they contributed about $467,374 toward our $500,000 goal.

That's amazing. We still have donations from letters we sent in the mail coming back to us, so we're on pace to hit—if not exceed—that goal. Thank you so much. We'll keep you posted here as the project ramps up, and you can join the hundreds of readers who have alerted us to corruption to dig into.
