A man who survived the ordeal of being stuck in his vehicle for five days in the snow by eating three Taco Bell sauce packets will have a whole year to replenish his sauce packet supply for free.

Jeremy Taylor, 36, was found Friday in his Toyota 4Runner with his dog Ally, in the Deschutes National Forest near Sunriver, after spending five days stuck in ever increasing snow.

The jokes write themselves. But, in reality, the situation could have been deadly.

His story went viral after Taylor wrote on Facebook, “Taco Bell fire sauce saves lives!”

Taco Bell was impressed by his story.

“We’re very glad Jeremy and Ally are okay,” the company said in a statement this week. “We know our sauce packets are amazing, but this takes it to a whole new level. We’re in touch with Jeremy and have sent him a well-deserved care package, a year’s supply of Taco Bell, and of course, all the sauce packets that come with it.”
