Since this Halloween falls on a Saturday, that means there will be an epic Halloweekend. There will be the pre-Halloween on Thursday and Friday, so honestly by the time you get to the real Halloween on Saturday, you’ll need some fuel to make it through this weekend.
Luckily, Booritos from Chipotle are back. Chipotle is offering $3 burritos (or bowls, tacos, or salads) on Halloween to anyone who comes in dressed up in their Halloween finest, but with a twist this year.
This year, Chipotle is promoting their no additive initiative. Chipotle was one of the first restaurants to take a no additive initiative, which is basically a pledge to only use non-GMO ingredients in their products. This means Chipotle pledges to serve food using only the best ingredients, food that hasn’t been altered or genetically modified in a way that doesn’t occur naturally.
In order to highlight their pledge to not use additives in their ingredients, Chipotle is encouraging customers to “add” something extra to their costumes in order to get the discount. In previous years, you could show up in any costume, from Katy Perry to the whole crew from OITNB and get your discounted burrito, but not anymore.
What does this mean for your costume this year? You could hit up your nearest Chipotle as the pizza rat or a classic white sheet ghost, and then add a sword, a pair of wings, or maybe even a giant spoon as your something extra for your costume to claim your $3 Chipotle. Just don’t show up looking normal, because that’s so last year.
Head on over after 5 pm to get your cheap fuel for the night, while supporting the healthy fast food movement and local farmers this Halloween for a win-win-win.
The proceeds, up to $1 million, will also go to the Chipotle Cultivate Foundation, which benefits small farms and promotes sustainable, fresh produce.
