If you’re anything like me, your car’s glove compartment is probably full of extra condiment packets…and if you are, you probably know that those extra hot sauce packets from Taco Bell are like gold. They can pep up everything from homemade tacos to other fast-food joints’ hamburgers. But they’re not literally gold…they are in fact free, but don’t tell the people online that. Apparently, packets of Taco Bell hot sauce are being listed on sites like eBay for huge sums, according to Fox News, with some even being posted for thousands of dollars.
You probably know that there is a market for reselling some hard-to-get food items like the Supreme Oreos, but not typically those as ubiquitous as Taco Bell hot sauce packets. Nevertheless, people are attempting to sell individual packs and sets of Taco Bell hot sauce at a profit. For example, right now on the site, a four-pack of “Rare!!” Taco Bell hot sauces is going for $98…but there doesn’t appear to be anything actually rare about them. Blank Taco Bell Diablo Hot Sauce packets (without the funny saying on them) are even going for $5 a packet. Another is listed as “Taco Bell Hot Sauce Blank Packet No Label. SUPER RARE (apparently)” and is being listed for $24,999. Another Taco Bell Hot Sauce listing is going for $2,500 for a single packet. We reached out to Taco Bell to get their take on this supremely weird situation but did not immediately hear back.
To be clear, at least some of these are definitely people joking around. For example, that last one has the description “Make your wildest dreams come true with these LIMITED Edition Taco Bell hot sauce packets. Forget about that Shining Fates Charizard, buy these instead!!” And as Food & Wine pointed out, while people are sometimes splurging like $5 for several packets, the ones listed for thousands have gotten no bites. Either way, they’ve definitely got my attention…and now all I want is a Crunchwrap.
