Taco Bell to go au naturale

Common sense wins a rare victory over corporate America.

Taco Bell, as you may have heard, has decided to take artificial flavors and colors out of its offerings.

For the detail-oriented among you, the company’s going to switch from using artificial black pepper to, and this is a quote, “natural black pepper flavor.”

Which does raise this very hair-splitting question, I grant you: is there a problem with, you know, actual black pepper?
