Transcript Taco Bell light menu runs for the border Wondering what happened to Taco Bell's Taco Bell, Starbuck said. Border Lights menu at the Satellite? Following a trend Although Allegro now accounts for approxi- occurring nationwide, the low-fat items at several fast- mately 15 percent of sales at the Satellite, Taco Bell food chains are being pulled from menus. and Pizza Hut are still the leaders because of their However, this is only one reason for the disap- low prices, Starbuck said, pearance of the tacos. The primary reason is a lack of The change in the taco menu really has not storage space for the food, now that an Allegro Pasta been noticed. Starbuck reported he has only received restaurant opened between semesters in the Satellite. According to Harold Starbuck, Food Service Director for the Satellite, Allegro was brought on as a healthier alternative to most campus dining. Although the light version of the tacos contained up to 50 percent less fat than the originals, there was not enough storage space for both options. "When we brought Allegro on board, we just didn't have the storage space for everything we needed." Starbuck said. "Taco Bell themselves are a little picky; they want a separate shelf designated for nothing but Border Light products." This is to prevent these products from getting mixed up with the other products. The Border Light products were introduced at the Satellite last spring, when Taco Bell rolled it out across the nation. Not only was the attempt fruitless at UH, it has also been an unsuccessful campaign for Harold Starbuck, food service director for the Satellite, straightens shelves in the walk-in cooler where Allegro Pasta food has taken over the storage space for Taco Bell's Border Lites, no longer on the menu. three comment cards about the matter. "My decision to eat or not to eat at Taco Bell is not influenced by the lack of light tacos," said Chris Brewster, a freshman pre-pharmacy student. The introduction of Allegro to the Satellite has been popular. "It's really a neat concept," said Starbuck, referring to the pasta, freshly made each day. "People really liked Allegro. It was worth the tradeoff." The prices, a little higher than Taco Bell's, reflect the amount of food one gets for the money. A plate of pasta with sauce costs $3.50, and a side of veggies is 75 cents. "Is it a plate of food or what?" said Melanie Melancon, a freshman pre-optometry student. Was the trade-off between tacos and pasta the right choice? Only time and students' pock- etbooks will tell the truth. Lisa M. Chmiola (courtesy of The Daily Cougar, 2/9/96) photo by Lisa Chmiola I70
