Taco Bell is putting the finishing touches on its new streamlined menu, including the removal of five more menu items, which the company says gives them room for new innovations.
“We’re constantly evaluating ways to provide a more efficient restaurant experience, and have already begun to see progress from streamlining our menu,” said Mike Grams, Taco Bell President. “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 is saying goodbye to Mexican pizza, a fan favorite. “We know some fans may be sad to see this one go, we are too. One silver lining of saying goodbye to the Mexican Pizza that might help you rest easy is that removing it from our menus helps us work towards our commitment to leave a lighter footprint on our planet. Currently, Mexican Pizza packaging accounts for over 7 million pounds of paperboard material per year in the U.S.,” said Grams.
The restaurant chain is also getting rid of pico de gallo, replacing it with diced tomatoes.
Additionally, the shredded chicken soft taco, shredded chicken burrito, and shredded chicken quesadilla melt will be removed from the menu beginning November 5.
“With these changes, we look forward to providing our guests with a more seamless Taco Bell restaurant experience, and even more exciting new innovations to come,” Grams said.
