To say that Taco Bell is a guilty pleasure would imply that I feel bad about eating it. Despite your feelings on Taco Bell, there is always a moment where that delicious faux-Mexican food just hits the spot. I don’t ever feel bad about eating it , though I DO feel bad after eating it, the shame is real, and my 30 something year old body is just not made for that type of food anymore.
Today, Taco Bell released that they will be removing approximately a dozen items from their menu August 13 and adding two new items. Admittedly my heart skipped a beat as I combed the list to see what was being removed. Was I going to have to say goodbye to Taco Bell forever if they removed my beloved Crunch Wrap? I let out a sigh of relief as I reached the bottom of the list, but does your favorite item make the cut?
Taco Bell is removing the following items:
- Grilled Steak Soft Taco
- 7-Layer Burrito
- Nachos Supreme
- Beefy Fritos Burrito
- Spicy Tostada
- Triple Layer Nachos
- Spicy Potato Soft Taco
- Cheesy Fiesta Potatoes
- Loaded Grillers
- Chips & Dips (WHAT!?)
- Mini Skillet Bowls
They are adding a $5 Grande Nachos Box and a Beef Burrito (was this really not a thing?). Also recently they added the Grilled Cheese Burrito, which I will say I was VERY underwhelmed with. Check out the new menu board below.
I won’t lie, I wouldn’t be sad if they brought back the nacho fries and the naked chicken chips as full time participants – a girl can dream. Also can we talk about the Cinnabon Delights? Does anyone actually order those? Can we get a new dessert item, Taco Bell? Now THAT would be exciting, and I would be more than happy to help to workshop and taste test these ideas.
What is your favorite Taco Bell item? Let me know in the comments! Happy Friday y’all if that means something to you, live long and bring back Volcano Sauce.
