A couple of months ago Taco Bell announced they were getting rid of some more menu items including the beloved Mexican pizza. November 5th is the date the Mexican Pizza vanishes from Taco Bell restaurants, but that might change!
I for one am a huge lover of the Mexican Pizza at Taco Bell... shocker I know! According to Food & Wine, there is a Change.org petition out there with more than 100,000 signatures, with the goal of keeping the menu item around! Now this a petition that I will gladly sign!
Krish Jagirdar, who created the petition told Food & Wine, quote, “I truly, truly believe we have made an impact. That we have made it known that we love the Mexican Pizza and we don't want it to go. I think that the executives at Yum! Brands and Taco Bell have heard us, but we need to keep going. I hope we can present our case to Taco Bell and work with them to find a way that allows them to keep the Mexican Pizza while also achieving their goals.”
Taco Bell did give a statement in which they said, "While we understand our fans are bummed to see it go, streamlining our menu opens the door for future food innovations that we know our fans will love just as much. We’ve enjoyed seeing fans and influencers share their fondest Mexican Pizza memories on social, and this past week, we gave it the sendoff it deserves with a tribute on Instagram. Although saying goodbye was a tough decision to make, we’ve loved the passion and energy our fans have shown us and want them to know we’re always listening and we care.”
So, I guess it doesn't matter how many signatures are on the petition, the final date of the Mexican Pizza on Taco Bell menus will be Nov. 5th... sad!
