On Thursday the presumed go-to location for millions when they are hankering for some post-drunkery nourishment announced it was putting the "finishing touches" on a new "streamlined menu."
"We're constantly evaluating ways to provide a more efficient restaurant experience, and have already begun to see progress from streamlining our menu," Mike Grams, Taco Bell's president and global COO, said in a press release. "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."
The announcement included a rundown of impending new releases and returning favorites, as well as a list of the items they're "saying goodbye to" including the Mexican Pizza, Pico de Gallo, and Shredded Chicken. Explaining the Mexican Pizza removal decision, the brand noted that its packaging is annually responsible in the U.S. for "7 million pounds of paperboard material."

As expected, plenty of Bell frequenters are not stoked about the Mexican Pizza's demise:
