Taco Bell is causing quite stir among customers again, and this point , it's because of a looming shortage. The chain's Mexican Pizza, which made its way back onto menus on May 19 following an 18-month-long hiatus, is briefly supply.
Due to the item's unprecedented popularity, ingredients are sparse, which suggests fans will need to say goodbye to the pizza just a few short days after getting it back.
Demand for the Mexican Pizza was seven times above when it was last on menus, and replenishing the beloved menu item is taking longer than we'd like," Taco Bell said on its website, confirming that the item are going to be gone for several months.
The news of the shortage began emerging on May 25 when a Reddit user posted a screenshot of an alleged internal email from Taco Bell. It read, in part, "Because of the incredible love for the Mexican Pizza, we've begun selling out across the country.
We'll communicate this to our fans later this week. The Mexican Pizza will return later this year; you'll hear more from us as that date approaches.
A day later, on May 26, the chain tweeted that the TikTok musical, featuring Dolly Parton and Doja Cat, that had been planned as a part of the beloved item's promotion, is being postponed.
Currently, Taco Bell's website includes answers to all or any questions surrounding the status of the Mexican Pizza. Shortages of the Mexican Pizza were unexpected, and have occurred on a rolling basis.
