New survey from Ortega® finds Americans would give up coffee, social media, and even sports in exchange for a year of free tacos

PARSIPPANY, N.J., May 2, 2022 — Ortega®, a leading brand of Mexican food products including taco shells, taco kits, Mexican seasonings, peppers and the number-one-selling brand of taco sauce in the United States, is marking Cinco de Mayo with a new sweepstakes where one lucky consumer will win a year of free tacos. The promotion comes on the heels of a recent survey from the Ortega brand, that revealed just how much Americans are willing to give up for free tacos every day for a year.

Ortega surveyed 1,300 Americans to understand their taco consumption behaviors and preferences, and found that Americans are willing to give up some of their favorite indulgences and vices – including coffee, video games, and even social media – if it means they can have free tacos for a year.

Key survey findings include:

  • Americans taking tacos over coffee: Nearly 1 in 3 (29%) Americans surveyed said they would give up coffee for one year if it meant they could get free tacos for a year.
  • Passing on popular pastimes: More than one third of Americans surveyed said they would give up sports (36%) and video games (34%) in order to receive free tacos for a year.
  • Swapping social time for tacos: Nearly one in five Americans surveyed said they were willing to give up social media (19%) if it meant they could have free tacos for a year.
  • Tacos takeover: When asked about the frequency of eating foods per month, almost half (48%) of Americans surveyed said they eat tacos at least once per month* – that’s more than pizza (46%), burgers (46%), French fries (41%) or pasta (36%).

Luckily, Americans won’t need to give anything up, including social media, to still be eligible to win free Ortega tacos for a year. Beginning today, May 2, 2022 through May 6, 2022, consumers can enter to win the Ortega ‘Year of Free Tacos’ sweepstakes by visiting ortega.com/sweepstakes. One winner will be selected at random and receive 52 coupons for a free box of Ortega taco shells – enough to create more than 600 tacos – in addition to assorted Ortega® products for creating the ultimate taco. The winner will also receive a $1040 gift card (equal to $20 per week) to purchase their favorite taco fillings and toppings. No purchase is necessary.
