Taco Bell listens to fuming fans and will bring back discontinued menu item – but they’ll have to choose one
TACO BELL fans are thrilled to have the opportunity to bring back one of their discontinued favorites.
Last year, fans were allowed to vote between two canceled items to see one return to the menu.
At the Double Decker Taco and the Enchritio vote, the latter returned for a brief stint in November.
Following the success of the popular campaign, the fast food restaurant has now announced another match between the hugely popular Beefy Crunch Burrito and Cool Ranch Doritos Locos Tacos.
The winner of the voting, which began March 30th and ended April 12th, will be available to order for a limited time.
The widely popular Beefy Crunch burrito disappeared from the fast food chain in 2011, and since then fans have rallied to bring it back.
People immediately demanded, “BRING IT BACK!” and “Bring that back right now! Forget the beefy melt… beefy crunch is the way to be!!”
The burrito features beef, seasoned rice, nacho cheese sauce, sour cream, and the main ingredient, Flamin’ Hot Fritos.
While many have noted the Beefy Melt’s similarity, Beefy Crunch fans have insisted it’s not the same without Fritos.
The Beefy Melt uses red tortilla chip strips instead.
A petition was started on Facebook as a community to bring back the Beefy Crunch burrito.
The so-called Beefy Crunch Movement has grown in size since its inception 11 years ago and now has nearly 70,000 fans.
On Reddit, members of the Beefy Crunch Movement said, “Cool ranch tacos are good, but nothing beats the crunch burrito.” It’s going to be amazing.”
Another added: “THIS IS BETTER THAN THE SUPER BOWL!”
One fan went so far as to “write humanity off,” saying, “Beefy Crunch should win hands down.
“If Cool Ranch wins, I’ll write humanity off completely.”
Die-hard Beefy Crunch supporters can even purchase a movement flag from the Beefy Crunch Movement shop for $10.
However, some have gone further with a more enduring tribute to their cause.
So far, eight members of the Beefy Crunch community have gotten tattoos to commemorate the burrito.
One voter tweeted Taco Bell, saying, “I’ll get a Beefy Crunch tattoo if we win on my butt.
“This will be the NINTH! tattoo that will have the #BeefyCrunchMovement.”
The CoolRanch Doritos Locos Tacos were introduced in 2013 but canceled in 2019.
The cool ranch seasoning on the taco shell sets it apart from the regular nacho cheese shell.
One voter said: “Don’t play with my feelings like that Taco Bell. #CoolRanchDoritosTacos.”
Another added: “As if it were a question RELEASE THE COOL RANCH.”
Rewards members can vote daily using the Taco Bell app, and the champion will be announced the day after the vote closes.
