Chipotle Offers $3 Meals on Halloween
A Scary-Good Offer from Chipotle!
The Buzz…

Love eating Mexican food, saving money, and dressing up like a weirdo (or like anything for that matter)? Congrats! Chipotle is offering $3 meals to those who show up in costume on Halloween night. The promo's dubbed the "Boorito," but you can totally get a bowl, tacos, or a salad for the special price. Click for our Chipotle guide! ***In more Mexican-food news, El Pollo Loco's latest offering is right up our alley. For a limited time, guests can customize an El Pollo Loco bowl with their choice of meat, veggies, toppings, and more. Nothin' loco about that... ***Need another reason to eat healthy? Results of a recent study suggest that the amino acid tyrosine (found in fruit, soybeans, and spinach) may promote creativity and deep thinking. Spinach tostada, anyone? ***If it feels like there are a lot more smart options at restaurants these days, you're not wrong. A study found that new items at large chain restaurants have fewer calories than we're used to seeing. The savings aren't quite as impressive as we'd like (60 fewer calories, on average), but we'll take it! Keep it up, restaurant peeps... ***And want to know how many calories' worth of produce per day Americans eat… compared to people in China? How about compared to 25 years ago? Get all that info and more in this interactive mini site, courtesy of National Geographic. And that's all we've got. HG out!
