Is it Aprils Fool yet, because I’m waiting for Taco Bell to tell us that this all a joke.
You may not be ready, but Taco Bell is saying sayonara to the beloved Mexican Pizza and that’s not all.
The fast food chain is as well saying goodbye to the shredded chicken and pico de gallo.
The Mexican Pizza including the shredded chicken and pico de gallo will be officially removed November 5th.
According to a press release, the removal of items will be supporting their new streamline menu, while also making room for other new food items that will be introduced at a later date.
Although with bad news, always comes good news and I can happily say that Taco Bell hasn’t let us down yet and will be replacing the removed items with new foods.
Plus, the pico de gallo will also be replaced with fresh diced tomatoes so it’s not a complete loss!
The new items include a Chicken Chipotle Melt, a Dragonfruit Freeze, Green Sauce and Quesalupas.
So it looks we have two new food items, a drink and a new sauce which is the most intriguing to me, since I’m assuming the green sauce might be similar to Salsa Verde!
The Chicken Chipotle Melt is described with grilled chicken, chipotle sauce, and cheddar cheese and will cost only one dollar on the Cravings Value Menu starting November 5th.
The new drink however, has an earlier release date this month on September 24th.
The previously discontinued fan-favorite Green Sauce, will be released the same day as the Chicken Chipotle Melt and has a new and improved taste including fire roasted green chilies, pureed jalapeño, and hatch green chiles.
Lastly, the Quesalupa will only be at select locations in Knoxville, Tennessee for now and we can only hope it becomes nationwide.
Here is what the new and refurbished menu will look like starting November 5th.
“We’re constantly evaluating ways to provide a more efficient restaurant experience, and have already begun to see progress from streamlining our menu,” Mike Grams, Taco Bell’s president and global COO, said in a statement. “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.”Mike Grams, Taco Bell’s president and global COO
So long Mexican Pizza, we’ve had a good run together.
