Taste-Off Smackdown: Chipotle vs. Taco Bell Cantina

By Lawrence Marcus Posted October 03, 2012

Could Taco Bell sink Chipotle? That's the contention of influential hedge fund manager David Einhorn, who says that the ubiquitous fast food chain's new Cantina Bell menu will draw customers away from its pricier, more ingredient-conscientious rival. Wall Street seemed to agree, with Chipotle shares dropping four percent on Tuesday after Einhorn's comments, but some commentators have been skeptical.

To test the theory, F&W's Kate Krader joined Felix Salmon and Anthony de Rosa of Reuters to taste the burritos and bowls side-by-side in this amusing video clip.
