When the original ad aired 20 years ago Mia Agraviador was just six years old, and despite all the time that has passed, she is still proud to call herself ‘that taco girl’.

In the two decades since Mia’s iconic one-liner has become a popular catchphrase often used when Aussies can’t decide between two things.

And now, she’s made her grand return in a new advertising campaign for Mingle Seasoning and their newly released Mexican range.

In the ad, Mia interrupts two friends as they discuss how “the little girl in those old taco ads” would be the perfect person to promote the new range. 

“Did somebody say good Mexican?” Mia says as she jumps into the room out of nowhere, celebrations quickly ensuing as she tries the new taco and fajita seasonings for herself, giving them the all-too-important thumbs up.
