Why Taco Bell Fans Think The Crispy Chicken Sandwich Taco Is No More

In sad fast food news, Taco Bell has officially removed the Crispy Chicken Sandwich Taco from its menu, per The Takeout. The fried chicken taco debuted less than six weeks ago and became an instant hit among Taco Bell customers. The unexpected menu drop has left fans stunned, causing many to turn to social media looking for answers.

Just five days ago, a thread titled "Did they discontinue the Crispy Chicken Sandwich Taco" blew up on Reddit after one hungry customer reported that they no longer had the option to order a fried chicken taco off the Taco Bell app. They stated that "the only place I can see it mentioned in the menu is in my favorites section," not on the actual mobile restaurant menu. Fellow frustrated fans chimed in, noting the taco was a "limited time item." Another person commented, "I wish they kept it until the end of October." One Reddit user, who appears to be a Taco Bell employee, gave an inside scoop on the situation: "We're selling them until we run out. Probably by mid next week they'll be gone, depending on the stock of other stores. Also you can't order them on the mobile app anymore, only in person. And it's not advertised either." There is some good news for Crispy Chicken Sandwich Taco lovers, but don't get your hopes up, because it could be awhile.

The limited-time item might make a comeback

Up until very recently, Taco Bell has remained "mum's the word" on the menu status of its Crispy Chicken Sandwich Taco. However, a representative for Taco Bell relayed the following message to The Takeout after news of the menu drop broke out: "The Crispy Chicken Sandwich Taco was a limited time menu offering. Innovation is core to Taco Bell and offering some menu items as limited time offers allows room on menus for even more new, craveable creations for fans." Despite the bad news, the representative hinted that the Crispy Chicken Sandwich Taco could return to menus down the line, but only time will tell.

Until then, hurry over to your nearest Taco Bell location and try to order the fried chicken taco before they run out of stock! Mashed tried the taco "spicy" version (aka with jalapeƱos) when it first came out and gave it two thumbs up! Good luck.
