Taco Bell’s New Taco Lover’s Pass Offers 30 Days of Tacos for One Low Price

By Mike Pomranz | FoodAndWine.Com Troy Warren for CNT #Foodie The chain is testing a subscription service in select locations. Remember, if you can, a time before the pandemic: a long, long, less-than-two-years ago. In that halcyon era, a trend had emerged of chains selling "passes" — a discounted price to access a large amount of food over a specific time span. Olive Garden's heavily-hyped Pasta Pass was an instant success in 2014, and others followed: For instance, Smashburger and Red Robin both offered burger passes; 7-Eleven sold a cup with unlimited free refills for a year, and Panera launched a monthly coffee subscription service. It's been a while…

You Can Finally Recycle Your Used Taco Bell Hot Sauce Packets

You Can Finally Recycle Your Used Taco Bell Hot Sauce Packets

By Mike Pomranz | FoodAndWine.Com Troy Warren for CNT #Foodie In a partnership with TerraCycle, customers can send packets off for recycling via UPS. Back in April, Taco Bell announced they had teamed up with the outside-of-the-box recycling company TerraCycle for a program that would allow heat lovers to give a second life to some of the 8.2 billion plastic hot sauce packets the company hands out each year (other than trying to sell them for exorbitant prices on eBay). At the time, the details on how the program would work hadn't really been hammered out, other than to imply that the nationwide program…

Taco Bell Breakfast Returns to Most Locations Next Month

By Mike Pomranz | FoodAndWine.Com Troy Warren for CNT #Foodie Some locations shut down breakfast service over 17 months ago. The COVID-19 pandemic upended life as we know it — in ways both dramatic and subtle. Somewhere in the middle was the loss of fast food breakfast service: Fewer morning commuters meant fewer people buying breakfast on the go, and as a result, some chains decided to reduce or eliminate their morning menus. Taco Bell was among the chains that has limited their breakfast service (among other items) over the past year-plus. But for anyone who has been craving breakfast burritos, good news: The…

Taco Bell’s New Drive-Thru Concept Puts the Kitchen Above Your Car

By Jelisa Castrodale | FoodAndWine.Com Troy Warren for CNT #Foodie The two-story Taco Bell Defy restaurants would have dedicated lanes for online orders. Last August, Taco Bell announced that it would be opening some new-look restaurants that better accommodated those of us who'd like to collect our Doritos Locos combos without interacting with anyone else. Each Taco Bell Go Mobile location would have double drive-thru lanes, with one traditional drive-thru for on-site ordering and pickup, and a priority lane that would be dedicated to quick pickups for orders placed online or through the Taco Bell app. "The priority lane is created for the…

Taco Bell Currently Dealing With Shortages of Ingredients, Hot Sauce, Even Napkins

Taco Bell Currently Dealing With Shortages of Ingredients, Hot Sauce, Even Napkins

By Jelisa Castrodale | FoodAndWine.Com Troy Warren for CNT The fast food brand is the latest to warn customers to expect supply chain issues. "Temporary shortages" have become two of the buzzwords (or one of the buzz phrases) of the past year, especially when it comes to fast food restaurants. Some Burger Kings in Michigan had to deal with a pickle shortage that delayed the debut of its chicken sandwich, Starbucks has been intermittently out of ingredients ranging from oat milk to fresh fruit, and even ketchup packets were once hard to come by. The latest chain to enter the "Uh-Oh, We're Out of That" club is Taco Bell.…
