Taco Scavenger Hunt + Giveaway

Friends. This… is BIG.

This is massive.

And this. This is awful.

In exactly 27 days, on May 2, 2017, there will be NO MORE TACOS left anywhere in the world! This can be confirmed, friends. My sources are reliable. My sources are dragons.

Something must be done about this horror of horrors.

We must #SaveTheTacos


Oh, wait. What’s that? You have an idea? Well, why didn’t you two say so before I freaked out? *sigh*

It seems that Miss Pond, Stormageddon, and a dragon have found a taco-making checklist! what do you mean I ripped those names off from Doctor Who? shush.

Okay. Alright.

The plan is to throw a taco party in order to #SaveTheTacos, but first we need to get our supplies together. So let’s go taco hunting!

Wait, what? Oh, fine. You can have some lollipops while we shop.

First, we need to find some tomatoes. Do you see any, Pond?

You do? Okay, perfect! Stormy, grab a tomato, but don’t eat it yet! It’s for the taco party!

Hooray! Tomato acquired! What’s next on the list? Hmmm…. Oh! Lettuce! If you can spot the green leafy thing, that’s the lettuce! Let’s take a look…

Oh. Oh, my.

That’s quite a few green leafy things. Let’s try to find one that’s shaped like a ball.

WAIT! —- Oh, well. I didn’t mean to throw it like a ball, but that’s totally cool. It’s fine. We’re only trying to SAVE THE TACOS, and fast! There’s no time for games! So what’s next?

Cheese? Mmmm. I love me some cheese.

Hey.. That’s not cheese!

You know what, though? I think you’re right, Stormy! We definitely need some tortillas for our tacos. You’re so smart! I want to veer off the list too! Let’s see…

Oh! Look!

We should totally get some spicy salsa for our taco party!


Wait. Guys. I don’t understand.

Oh. Mhmm. Yeah…. OHHHHHHH

I get it now.

Dragons do NOT like spicy salsa!

Okay, okay. My bad. Moving on. Have you spotted the cheese yet?

There it is! THERE IT IS! Our taco hunt checklist is complete! Let’s get this stuff home!

Okay, now that we’re home, let me do the grown-up stuff. Stand back, everybody! Just a little slice here, and a little dice there, and…..

Dragons love tacos. They love chicken tacos, beef tacos, great big tacos, and teeny tiny tacos. So if you want to lure a bunch of dragons to your party, you should definitely serve tacos. Buckets and buckets of tacos. Unfortunately, where there are tacos, there is also salsa. And if a dragon accidentally eats spicy salsa… oh, boy. You’re in red-hot trouble.
