Taco Bell to Change Menu and Discontinue 12 Popular Items

The Taco Bell menu just got a little bit smaller. Rumors started the spread last week on Reddit and social media that Taco Bell was getting rid of all the potato items. The fast food chain was quick to share that 12 popular menu items will be getting the ax come August 13. In an effort to clear space on the menu and to create a more efficient Taco Bell experience, the Taco Bell menu change includes cutting old favorites, like the 7-layer burrito, from the menu. Don't worry, your Nacho Cheese Doritos Locos Tacos aren't going anywhere.

According to a press release on the Taco Bell website, the fast food chain has been making changes since the beginning of the Coronavirus pandemic, focusing on team member and customer safety. Taco Bell knows that change can be daunting. Thankfully you can still get your fan favorites for a few more weeks until they are gone for good.

"And while change is hard, a simplified menu and innovation process will leave room for new fan favorites, continued progress in categories such as plant-based diets, and even opportunities for the return of some classics on a limited-time basis." The company shares in its press release.
