- Taco Bell announced the Quesalupa will be removed from menus in May after less than three months after it made its triumphant return
- It’s safe to say fans are less than thrilled with the decision
- This is just the latest in a long line of beloved menu items Taco Bell has discontinued
In 1924, Robert Frost won a Pulitzer Prize for the poem “Nothing Good Can Stay,” and almost a century later, no one is working harder to prove that axiom is true than Taco Bell.
Taco Bell has long been at the forefront when it comes to concocting culinary creations nobody knew they needed until the chain unleashed them on an unsuspecting world. However, if we’ve learned anything over the past few years, it’s that you want to avoid getting emotionally attached to any of their many stoner-friendly innovations unless you want to set yourself up for crushing disappointment.
Since 2019, the Taco Bell menu has been subjected to a fairly drastic culling that’s led to the tragic disappearance of longtime staples including the Doritos Locos Taco, the Mexican Pizza, and everything containing potatoes. However, it’s done what it can to placate the masses by continuing to test out new items in addition to resurrecting some fan favorites—like the Quesalupa, which made its glorious return in March after being discontinued in 2016.
Unfortunately, it appears this retroactive stay of execution has been lifted. According to Entrepreneur, anyone who wants to get their hands on a chalupa with a quesadilla as a shell at the restaurant will only be able to do so until the end of May (although it appears it’s already vanished from some locations).
Last night when I found out that the Quesalupa was discontinued at @tacobell I audibly gasped at the drive thru intercom

It’s safe to say some people didn’t exactly take the news very well.

Remember: don’t cry because it’s over. Smile because it happened.
