The coronavirus pandemic has brought a lot of changes. It has changed how we socialize, work, go to school and even how we shop. Online shopping and drive up services are more popular than ever before, and that means even more changes for the future.

Smart restaurants are choosing to change with the times. Burger King has announced an innovative new way they plan to overhaul their restaurants, and now Taco Bell is also announcing some changes.

Not only is Taco Bell going to change the way customers can order and pick up their food, but they are also changing what food costumers can order. That’s right: some menu items are disappearing.

This isn’t the first time in 2020 that Taco Bell changed the menu. Eleven items were removed from the fast food chain’s menu back on August 17th. These include favorites such as Nachos Supreme and the 7-Layer Burrito.

In a news statement, Taco Bell explained, “We’re clearing space on our menu to create a more efficient Taco Bell experience.” The company sited COVID as a major reason for the changes.

In November, 5 more menu items will disappear. These menu items are the Mexican Pizza, Pico de Gallo and all three menu items that include shredded chicken, the Shredded Chicken Soft Taco, Shredded Chicken Burrito, and Shredded Chicken Quesadilla Melt.

As the saying goes, out with the old and in with the new. The new menu items will include a Chicken Chipotle Melt and a tropical beverage called a Dragonfruit Freeze.

The announcement from Taco Bell went on to reassure customers that this will be the last time the menu changes this year. It also attempted to reassure customers that even though some of their favorite items are no longer on the menu board, they doesn’t mean they can’t be ordered. For example, the Quesarito can still be ordered on the mobile app.

Are any of your favorite menu items going to be removed from Taco Bell’s menu? Has COVID-19 changed the way you prefer to shop and order from restaurants?
