Anyone who tells you trick-or-treating is just for kids obviously isn't familiar with the Chipotle Boorito experience: this year, get a $3 Chipotle burrito on Halloween simply by arriving to the restaurant chain dressed up in a costume — any costume. There are no other tricks required. Sure, it's not quite like going door to door with a pillow case asking your neighbors for candy, but I will take a Chipotle chicken burrito with brown rice, black beans, tomatillo red chili salsa, cheese, and guac over any mini Snickers bar, any time. And the fact that it's only $3? That, my friends, is what we call a Halloween miracle.
So how does this Boorito magic work? Put on your Halloween costume — whether that involves elaborate Harley Quinn makeup or a simple pair of cat ears — and then head to your nearest Chipotle location on Oct. 31 anytime between 3 p.m. and closing time. Boom, $3 Chipotle. Oh, and the deal isn't only good for burritos, either. If you show up in costume, you can get a burrito bowl, salad, or tacos for $3 instead, if that's more your style. Just note that this is an in-store deal only — it won't work with any online or mobile orders. And, lest you start getting any ideas, it's limited to one burrito per person. Remember, in the words of Cady Heron:
It's not a free for all.
Devoted Chipotle fans know that the Halloween Boorito is hardly a new concept, though it is easier to get your hands on the discounted eats this year than it has been in the past. I remember in college having to dress up like an actual burrito in order to get the good stuff — a feat which, if I remember correctly, mostly involved just wrapping yourself in tin foil. Last year, the chain asked that people arrive in costumes that featured one unnecessary item (think a flapper wearing a beach hat, for instance). This year is a bit no-frills by comparison — you just have to show up in a costume and give thanks to the burrito gods for loving Halloween as much as you do.
In case you need any more incentive, Chipotle is also donating a million dollars of its Boorito proceeds to the Chipotle Cultivate Foundation, which according to its website is committed to "creating a more sustainable food future" by "providing resources and promoting good stewardship for farmers; promoting better livestock husbandry; encouraging regenerative agriculture practices; and fostering food literacy, cooking education, and nutritious eating."
One million dollars translates into a whole lot of $3 burritos, so get that costume ready. Chipotle is calling.
