Bell fans have launched a massive campaign to “save” one of the
chain’s most iconic items. In September, the fast-food franchise
announced a series of menu cuts that, depending on your love for pico
de gallo, may have been pretty heartbreaking. Pico de gallo aside,
the most painful announcement seemed to involve Mexican Pizza. The
dish, which is essentially a large, round taco topped with pizza
sauce, tomatoes and cheese, will leave the menu in early November.
That news didn’t go over well with Taco Bell obsessives, some of
whom created a Change.org petition to stop the item’s removal. As
of October 13, that petition has more than 100,000 signatures. The
campaign calls fast food lovers to “band together, show support,
and save the Mexican Pizza.” It’s worth noting, though, that the
chain has promised that it’s adding plenty of new menu items to
help fill the void — including a $1 Chicken Chipotle Melt.
