Taco Bell could be ready to right a wrong for many customers after what some see as betrayal in the fall of 2020. That’s when the restaurant took the popular Mexican pizza off the menu as part of the cutting of articles for a refined offer. There is now talk of the popular item returning to the channel, although nothing has been confirmed yet.
The restaurant tried to soften the shock to customers by noting how the packaging of Mexican pizza undermines efforts to make the company greener for the environment. “One good thing about saying goodbye to 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,” read a statement. of the company at the time. “Currently, Mexican pizza wrappers represent over 7 million pounds of cardboard per year in the United States. “
The explanation did not alleviate the situation for many who lamented the article’s withdrawal. Their suffering has lasted for over a year at this point, but may end soon. According to The Takeout, however, there is hope if an alleged video from a franchise convention last month. Living farmhouse, the popular Taco Bell fan site, claims to have received a video of the event which allegedly confirmed the return of the popular article.
“If we want to bring it back, if it’s a big though, could we possibly make more than the original Mexican pizza?” Taco Bell vice president and COO Mike Grams said in the video transcript. After a chat with Liz Matthews, Director of Food Innovation, Grams is excited about some of the ideas for the return of the snack. This includes a potential Mexican double cheese pizza, another with chorizo, one at the ranch with bacon, a possible dessert option and finally, a 7 layer option.
While all the back-and-forth sounds like fun, Grams ends the segment by saying, “Okay Liz, we’re bringing back the Mexican pizza.” It’s far from a confirmation, but Living Mas has also shared information from its subreddit and an anonymous “verified Taco Bell employee” who confirms the pizza rumor and throws a few more.
This includes the new value menu including a double beef burrito, a “Fiesta Veggie” burrito and a chicken ranch option. There’s also the return of Crispy Chicken in February in thong form, another return for their wings in a two-week offer, and the firm return of pizza by April or May due to supply chain issues. .
The Takeout adds that Living Mas is sticking to the reports and that the “verified employee” in question has always been specific with his leaks in the past. Does that mean people will be happy again with delicious Mexican pizza in their throats? Quite possible. But don’t expect it under the Festivus pole this year.
