Last CallLast CallLast Call is The Takeout’s online watering hole where you can chat, share recipes, and use the comment section as an open thread. Here’s what we’ve been reading/watching/listening around the office today.

Finally acknowledging that a full 28.5% of all subscribers are eating tacos at any given moment* while using the service, Netflix has finally given the people more of what we deserve: taco content. This Friday, Netflix debuts Las Crónicas del Taco, a series about different styles of Mexican tacos and the people who make them. Our heartiest applause for this new category of Netflix offerings: the tacumentary.

It’s presented in Spanish with English subtitles, but let’s be clear: This could be an entirely silent affair and we’d still watch.

I’m embarrassed by this but need to vent (“vent”) and this seems like the perfect place: I’ve never liked excess butter on things and typically choose Brummel ‘n’ Brown over “real” butter for toasted breakfast foods. That said, I finally bought and tasted Kerrygold butter within the last week and have eaten almost two full sticks since. In less than a week. I had it with buns fresh out of the oven and an America’s Test Kitchen-style baked potato to start, then dipped Ritz crackers and even Nilla Wafers in it, and all of it was weirdly delicious. It gives me slight heartburn and severely clogged arteries, but I’m just biding my time now until three bananas really ripen and I can make banana bread for a new Kerrygold Delivery Method®.

I’ll probably be dead in a month, but it might be worth it?
