Taco Bell will officially say goodbye to more menu items soon, including its beloved Mexican Pizza.
The fast-food chain announced plans to remove three more staples in another round of cuts after already slashing more than a dozen menu items in August.
Fans will have to say farewell to the Mexican Pizza, as well as the shredded chicken and pico de gallo starting on Nov. 5. Unfortunately, the loss of shredded chicken will also mean no more shredded chicken soft tacos, shredded chicken burritos or shredded chicken quesadilla melts.
Sorry, Taco Bell fans. File this under your latest reason to blame 2020.
According to the company, the latest round of changes are “finishing touches” on a “new streamlined menu in order to make room for new innovations.”
“While we know fans may be understandably sad to see some of their favorites go, this evolution of our menu truly paves the way for fresh new ideas. The creativity and innovation in our kitchen hasn’t slowed down at all, and we look forward to rolling out new fan favorites,” Taco Bell President and Global COO Mike Grams said in a statement.
In order to lessen the blow, there is a slight silver lining. Taco Bell also announced it will add several new menu items including a chicken chipotle melt, dragonfruit freeze, green sauce and the Quesalupa.
The chain says the chicken chipotle melt and dragon fruit freeze will get a nationwide release. Green sauce, a previously discontinued customization option, will return to select markets. Finally, the fan-favorite Quesalupa will come back as a test item in Knoxville, Tennessee before a possible nationwide launch.
The chain promises fans this latest shakeup is the final phase of the 2020 menu revamp.
