While fans of the taco giant have been mourning the loss of the Nacho Fries, Taco Bell is choosing to spread some Christmas cheer this holiday season.
After a menu reduction earlier this year, fans of the fast food chain saw one of their favorites leave the menu. And with the loss of the coveted Nacho Fries came pleas for their return.
Now, Taco Bell is aiming to launch the product again nationwide for a limited time. Beginning on December 24th, customers will be able to scoop their favorite, grease-filled snack from the chain, Comicbook.com reports.
"In a year as difficult and uncertain as this one was, we know that consumers crave the comforts they love most," Taco Bell brand head Nikki Lawson said. "That's why we're excited to bring back Nacho Fries for our passionate fans to close out this year and kick off 2021 positively and deliciously."
She continued, "The magic of the Nacho Fries franchise extends beyond the menu item itself and is brought to life with our next saga of the Nacho Fries movie franchise that we hope brings some seasonal (and seasoned) joy to fans like only we can.”
And Nacho Fries aren't the only delicious dish that Taco Bell is bringing to customers on Christmas Eve. They'll also be adding their $1 Loaded Nacho Taco, a new Taco and Burrito Cravings Pack, and a Bacon Club Chalupa.
Nacho Fries will be available for the price of just $1.39. Pricing may vary by location.
The reason for the initial menu change had to do with with changing business due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Taco Bell President Mike Grams said at the time, "We’re constantly evaluating ways to provide a more efficient restaurant experience, and have already begun to see progress from streamlining our menu."
He continued, "While we know fans may be understandably sad to see some of their favorites go, this evolution of our menu truly paves the way for fresh new ideas. The creativity and innovation in our kitchen hasn’t slowed down at all, and we look forward to rolling out new fan favorites."
