Taco Bell Removing Menu Items

Unfortunately, Taco Bell will be removing numerous menu items to make way for a newly revamped menu.

Reddit Employee

An alleged Taco Bell employee made a post via Reddit last week when he or she spilled the beans on what’s to come for the fast-food franchise. Days later, the company released its new menu and confirmed that most of the updates are in fact, true.

What Taco Bell Said

“We’re clearing space on our menu to create a more efficient Taco Bell experience,” the company said in a lengthy statement.

“Beginning August 13, we will be simplifying our menu to streamline operations,” the company further explained. “This evolved menu approach comes after months of analyzing the new way we are running our restaurants. With safety top of mind, we want to ensure an easy and fast ordering experience for our guests and team members.”

Moreover, the company said that while this change will be hard for some, the new simplified menu will “leave room for new fan favorites.” The company also shared its plans to create food for those who eat a plant-based diet in addition to the return of some classic favorites for a limited time.
