Taco Bell patrons are having a hard time accepting the discontinuation of a beloved item from the menu. While the popular chain is introducing five new items, including the much-loved Bacon Club Chalupa and Double Steak Grilled Cheese Burrito, it also means that one item will have to be removed to make space for the newcomers. The Quesarito, which is a combination of a quesadilla and burrito with savory beef, creamy chipotle sauce, sour cream, nacho cheese, and seasoned rice, will remain on the menu until April 19, as per a recent email from Taco Bell. Unsurprisingly, the item's devotees expressed their disappointment about the decision.
Upon hearing the news about the Quesarito's removal from the menu, some customers took to social media to express their frustration. "They're discontinuing the Quesarito?????!?!?? We need to organize," one Twitter user exclaimed. Another customer shared, "Taco Bell taking the Quesarito away ruined my day."
A few customers speculated that the chain may have decided to remove the item to create demand through scarcity, with the possibility of bringing it back in the future for a grand return. "They'll bring it back months from now and act like it's a big deal," one Reddit user predicted.
However, Taco Bell has yet to give any indication of a future return for the Quesarito. Originally launched in June 2014 as a permanent, national menu item following a successful test market debut, the item's future is currently uncertain.
In addition to disappointment over the Quesarito, some Taco Bell fans also expressed frustration about the prices of the new menu items. While Taco Bell suggested prices of $3.49 and $4.99 for the Double Steak Grilled Cheese Burrito and Bacon Club Chalupa, respectively, several customers shared pictures on Reddit showing that the items were being sold at much higher prices in certain markets.
Taco Bell has not yet responded to customer complaints about the Quesarito or the prices of its new items.
