Taco Bell Downsizing Menu Again
Not unlike most fast food restaurants this year Taco Bell has made some changes. A little twist here, a little tuck there. It appears this is the new standard if they want to stay afloat. It seems to always hurt more when the restaurants trim their menu, especially if they drop something that was your favorite.
Taco Bell certainly gave us a heads up...on some things. But, it looks like those cuts are going even deeper than first thought.
Taco Bell started the trimming back in August and streamlined its menu by cutting around a dozen items, then they debuted a new restaurant concept meant to cater to to-go orders. Now, the chain has announced even more changes to its menu.
As part of the second revamp announced last month, Taco Bell will be cutting a few items from menus starting on November 5.
First up on the chopping block is the Mexican Pizza. Taco Bell said it is cutting this item in part because of its environmental impact, as its packaging accounts for over seven million pounds of paperboard material per year in the U.S. Hmmmm, nice cover.
Combo #8 will now feature three Nacho Cheese Doritos Locos Tacos Supreme.
Next up to be cut is Pico de Gallo, right! You're thinking the same thing I was...No! But the chain said you can still get a similar experience by ordering diced tomato. Not quite, but anyways.
Finally, and this is a tough one, Taco Bell will also be cutting shredded chicken, which means the chain is cutting the Shredded Chicken Soft Taco, Shredded Chicken Burrito and Shredded Chicken Quesadilla Melt.
Is there nothing sacred in 2020? I guess we'll have to see how the next two months pan out.
