No wonder it's so delicious! Sad but true: if it's not illegal, immoral, or fattening it's usually not any good. :( LMFAO

Not reading it!  The Dorito tacos are fucking delicious and I will eat them anyway.  Hell, we should be happy they contain beef and not cat or something.

You say these things are banned in Europe, but do you realize that melatonin is also banned in the UK unless you have a prescription (as an adult) and complete banned for use with those under 16. There are many differences in substances that are regulated by their version of the FDA.
