12 Signs You Have A Chipotle Addiction And Will Always Pay Extra For Guac

Everyone loves Chipotle. Well, most people do. The Mexican Grill provides an inexpensive meal with organic ingredients that you can choose for yourself. Whether you're in need of a quick meal, craving a burrito, or just want some good food, Chipotle is the choice for any food-related crisis. Seriously, there is no problem a bowl or burrito can't fix. For me and for others, this restaurant has started some sort of an addiction, and if you're a regular at this iconic place, you've probably had some of these same thoughts.

1. Burrito or Bowl?

The inner turmoil of deciding what route to take when perfecting your meal is a tough one. I consider this one of the harder decisions I have to make. The burrito or bowl provides the base for your meal and what you choose is entirely based on your mood and situation. So, you have to ask yourself what the best move is. If you're eating with friends, then probably a bowl because:

A. it's neater and

B. it's easier for leftovers.

However, if you can't wait to pig out and stuff your face with some Mexican- goodness while binge-watching your favorite TV show, then a burrito is the way to go.

2. Yes, I know guac is extra.

Chipotle employees are always quick to remind you the guac is extra; but don't worry, this I already know. Yes, the guac is worth the splurge and honestly, everyone already knows this so the reminder is kind of irrelevant.

3. You can eat it several times in a week

Eating chipotle as a meal several times a week might take a toll on your bank account but improves your happiness immensely. No, I don't feel guilty and I will never get sick of it.

4. You've considered working there

Any Chipotle lover has considered getting a job at the place where they spend a ridiculous amount of time. You might as well get paid for the amount of time you spend at your local establishment. Plus, even the thought of getting free food is a plus. For me, I'd rather have someone else roll my burrito; I'm good at eating them, but making them is another story.

5. You have a specific order

You've tried it all- white and brown rice, black or pinto, and all the kinds of meat. You've gotten to the point where you have perfectly crafted the perfect blend of salsas, crunch, and juiciness. At this point, you're unlikely to change things up. Why change perfection?

6. You get offended when people like Qdoba better

As a Chipotle enthusiast, the words "Want to get Qdoba?" bring tears of sadness to your eyes. You're so loyal to the chain that the thought of converting to a Qdoba fan is almost frightening. Plus, now that Chipotle has queso, there's really no need to.

7. You have too many Chipotle gift cards

The go-to gift for Birthdays and Holidays for you is officially known to those who know you. You have a plethora of Chipotle gift cards but you aren't complaining because you have every excuse to use them.

8. Your cravings are crazy

Your burrito is always on your mind. It doesn't matter the time of day or place, you're always craving this perfect meal. Sometimes, it even finds it's way into your dreams.

9. "Anyone want to go to Chipotle?"

Is a phrase that leaves your mouth and is in all of your group chats way too often. Some company to go along with a meal is never discouraged. It makes the experience 10x better.

10. Halloween is your favorite holiday

Dressing up is fun and all, but it's even more fun if you get a free BOOrito. Bless you, Chipotle gods for this day.

11. You know all the tricks

Half a scoop of two types of meat instead of double-meat to keep it cheaper. Lettuce on top of the guac during a rush leads to a higher chance of not being charged extra thanks to this disguise. If you get a vegetarian meal, then you get free guac. Come on amateurs, get with the program.

12. It's the love of your life

Who needs a significant other when your burrito, bowl, tacos, or salad are your soulmate. They never let you down and are always there for you.

Seriously, what more you could you ask for?

10 Reasons Moe's Will Always And Forever Be Superior To Chipotle

Welcome to Moe's!
24243
views

With the great debate between which burrito place is the best, here are 10 reasons why Moe's is clearly the better option than Chipotle. *Side note, I do like Chipotle, but Moe's will always be No. 1 in my heart.

1. WELCOME TO MOE'S!

You don't get this kind of hospitality from Chipotle.

2. Their menu is much larger.

Moe's offers burritos, quesadillas, nachos, burrito bowls, tacos, salads, and they all have cool names! Chipotle just has burritos, bowls, tacos, and salads. BORING.

3. They offer a variety of toppings.


Moe's offers over 20 fresh ingredients while Chipotle has...barely anything. :/

4. Moe Monday.

$5 BURRITOS!!!!! Seriously no one can beat that.

5. Their prices in general.


At Chipotle it's $6.50 just for a for a burrito alone. Add on chips, guac and a drink and that's roughly $13. At Moe's you can get a burrito, chips, unlimited salsa, and a drink for $8.80. Add on queso and that's only $1.25 more. (But totally worth it!!!) Which brings me to my next case...

6. QUESO!!!!!!!!!!

Queso is bae. That is all.

7. Free chips and a salsa bar!

We don't pay extra here.

8. The atmosphere at Moe's just feels better.

Chipotle's are usually tiny little restaurants that barely have any tables. Every time I go to Chipotle I feel rushed to eat my food because people are usually hovering over you looking for a seat. Moe's is like five times it size and they play good music.

9. Moe's is made with FRESH ingredients.


I'm not even gonna get into the whole Chipotle situation...

10. Overall, Moe's just tastes better than Chipotle.


Sorry 'bout it.

Coffee Drinks You Need To Try If You're Willing To Go Outside Your Comfort Zone

Even if you like your coffee black, I have some drinks you might want to try.

Here are some quick little changes to add to your typical coffee order!

Starting with things to add to a regular old cup of coffee, you could order a cafe au lait. A cafe au lait is half your medium/dark roast coffee with half steamed milk. For the espresso drinks, ask to add a raw sugar in with the espresso. Personally, this is my favorite because it adds a little bit of sweetness, but not much at all. I like a lot of foam with my lattes, so I will order a cappuccino, which are the shots of espresso and more dry foam filled to the top. Keep in mind: you can add any syrup flavor to these drinks.

Most people who go out for coffee stick with the same order; I asked one customer if they would like to try the oat milk with their french vanilla latte.. and get this! He liked it and orders it with oat milk every time! Whether you're dairy-free or not, trying different types of milk in your coffee is fun!

There is typically oat milk, coconut milk and almond milk at coffee shops. Switch out the whole milk for almond milk and it's a whole new taste on the latte! Non-dairy milk is also better for you, especially your skin! Remember that cafe au lait I was talking about earlier? You can make it iced! The barista will take their cold brew concentrate and put it over ice, with your choice of milk poured on top!

Always ask to see what kind of syrups the coffee shop has because most do have more than just vanilla and caramel! My personal favorites are butterscotch and maple! The peppermint mocha is always one of my easy favorites to order, as well. You chai lovers! Add vanilla or blackberry syrup to your typical chai, it's like a whole new drink!

On the coffee stand, there's usually honey and cinnamon. With any drink you order, even tea, honey will make a huge difference in your choice of drink. Next time you go to a coffee shop, look at the syrup flavors, ask questions, and maybe try a new kind of milk! Also remember, just because fall season is coming up and it's getting a little chilly out, doesn't mean you have to stop getting iced coffee.
