You might have thought that your love for Chipotle and your plans for Halloween don't have much in common. But this Halloween, it's totally possible to get $3 burritos at Chipotle — there's just a very specific way how. If you're a Chipotle die-hard, you know what I'm referring to: Every Halloween, the restaurant introduces their annual BOOrito promotion, which offers $3 burritos to customers who show up in costume on Halloween afternoon. So, if you're like me, and you were thinking that you were going to skip out on dressing up this year for Halloween, you might want to rethink that if you're planning a Chipotle trip. A low-key effort at putting together a costume can get you a super cheap Chipotle meal — like c'mon, do it for the burrito.
All you have to do is show up at Chipotle after 3 p.m. on Halloween afternoon (this is the perfect pre-trick or treat power meal) in a costume that a restaurant employee deems festive (i.e. don't try to say your sneakers are an earnest attempt at dressing up as your favorite athlete), and you're well on your way to a cheap meal. You can trade in your Halloween efforts for a $3 burrito, bowl, salad or order of tacos, making the most compelling argument for a Halloween costume yet.
But if you just can't bring yourself to dress up for Halloween because you're too overwhelmed by the concept of figuring out a costume and putting it together, there's still a rewarding Halloween-themed opportunity for you that you don't even have to leave the house for, making it a much sweeter option, TBH. Between now and Halloween eve, you can text BOORITO to 888222 for a chance to win an entire year of free burritos. Yes, this is a real thing and should absolutely start texting this number immediately. In order to be eligible, you must be over the age of 18 and live in the United States (Hawaii and Alaska are not included in this contest, sorry!). The winner will be selected at random on Nov 1. and they will be able to cash in their prize for up to 52 burritos within the calendar year.
In past years, Chipotle fans have been known to get really into BOOrito day, and have even dressed up as the burrito as their Halloween costume. If you don't believe me, check out these numbers of Halloween past:
Not only is this costume incredibly clever, but it also doubles as a swaddle, which makes it adorable and genius. Like have you ever seen a baby so happy to be a burrito?
This XXXXXXXL burrito surely got its trick-or-treater a $3 Boorito. And I have to say, I'm very impressed with the mastery here. It's basically art.
If you want to stay warm this Halloween, wrap yourself up in some sandwich paper, it acts as a makeshift emergency blanket and also makes you look a while lot like a burrito. Though you might want to consider cutting arm holes, if you want to collect the goods, that is.
This costume really pulls out all the stops. If you want to go incognito this kind of full body burrito look is for you.
Don't Forget The Tacos
Taco fans are people too. And, they're included in the BOOrito Halloween special, with a $3 taco. Perhaps there are bonus points (like free guac?!) if you show up dressed up as the food you're ordering.
Last Minute Idea
If you decide last minute that you want to dress up for your BOOrito, this costume is literally perfect. And also hilarious, which should count for something.
