Taco Bell Gives, Takes Away

Taco Bell is removing the Quesarito from its menus on April 19, but welcoming back two other items.

The Quesarito is a quesadilla-burrito hybrid that dates back to 2014 and is credited as a Chipotle invention. Last summer, Taco Bell pulled the item from its in-store and drive-through menus; it's only available now via its website or mobile apps.

Meanwhile, Taco Bell is once again offering the Double Steak Grilled Cheese Burrito ($3.49), which is topped with a blend of mozzarella, cheddar and pepper jack cheeses, and the Bacon Club Chalupa ($4.99), which includes grilled chicken, shredded lettuce, diced tomatoes, avocado ranch sauce in a chalupa shell.

Other additions include the Blue Raspberry Breeze and Wild Cherry Freeze drinks ($2.99) which are available with a twist of mango, pineapple, lime or passionfruit.



Those launches come while Taco Bell readies two regional launches.

The Cheesy Chicken Crispinada will be available in Knoxville, Tennessee for a limited time. That item is a pastry shell filled with shredded chicken and a blend of melty cheeses with a side of spicy ranch for $3.49.

In Birmingham, Alabama, $2 Double Stacked Tacos will be available in three different flavors: Cheesy Chipotle, Sweet Scorpion and Nacho Crunch.

Taco Bell’s willingness to diversify its menu is evident with its recent experiment with Mexican Pizza, which was brought back thanks to an online petition

Speaking of online petitions, someone has started one to save the save the Quesarito. So far, a few more than 100 people have signed that petition.
