A beloved Taco Bell menu item is slated to return.
Taco Bell is expected to revive a popular menu item, according to sources.
Taco Bell may be eager to make amends for many customers after what some regard to be betrayal in the fall of 2020.
As part of a purge to produce a more refined menu, the popular Mexican Pizza was removed from the menu.
Though nothing has been verified, there is already rumor that the popular item will be brought back to the chain.
The fact that the Mexican Pizza’s packaging was interfering with the restaurant’s efforts to become more environmentally friendly reassured customers.
“One silver lining of bidding goodbye to the Mexican Pizza is that eliminating it from our menus helps us work toward our objective to leave a lighter imprint on our world,” the firm noted at the time.
“In the United States, Mexican pizza packaging consumes about 7 million pounds of paperboard material each year.”
The explanation did not placate many people who were outraged by the item’s removal.
Their agony has lasted more than a year, but it may soon be over.
According to The Takeout, a reported video from a franchise convention last month gives optimism.
According to Living Mas, a prominent Taco Bell fan site, a video from the occasion supposedly confirmed the popular item’s comeback.
“If we’re going to bring it back, if that’s a huge if, could we eventually maybe do more than just the original Mexican Pizza?” Taco Bell VP and COO Mike Grams says in the video’s transcript.
After chatting with Chief Food Innovation Officer Liz Matthews, Grams is intrigued by some of the suggestions for the snack’s return.
A double cheesy Mexican pizza, chorizo pizza, bacon ranch pizza, a dessert option, and a 7-layer pizza are all possibilities.
“Okay Liz, we’re bringing back the Mexican Pizza,” Grams says at the end of the dialogue, which appears to be amusing. While this isn’t proof, Living Mas also posted evidence from its subreddit and an unnamed “Verified Employee of Taco Bell” who confirms the pizza allegation and adds a few more.
On the new value menu, there’s a double beef burrito, a “Fiesta Veggie” burrito, and a chicken ranch option.
