Taco Bell’s Naked Chicken Chalupa Is No Longer
By Cooking Panda
We can’t say we’re shocked by this news, if we’re being quite honest.
Even though the new, limited-time Naked Chicken Chalupa by Taco Bell only debuted on Jan. 26, the menu item is already on its way out sometime in March, according to the OC Register.
Before it ever debuted, the chalupa, whose shell was actually made out of spicy fried chicken, then flattened and shaped into a tortilla shell shape and stuffed with shredded lettuce, chopped tomatoes, shredded cheese and avocado ranch sauce, made a huge splash online and definitely earned its fair share of buzz from fans salivating to try the innovative meal.
Not only that, but Taco Bell went all out with its promotional stunts for the chalupa, including opening up a Taco Bell Speakeasy in New York City to celebrate the launch of the item.
This seems like an exceptionally short run for such a talked-about menu item, but the OC Register reports that a spokesperson for the fast-food chain actually said that the Naked Chicken Chalupa had about the “same length” of time on the menu as most other “LTO,” or limited-time offerings.
The chalupa was in testing for two years and will end up spending less than two full months on the Taco Bell menu.
It only costs $2.99 to pick up one of these chicken chalupas and try it for yourself before you never have the chance again, so if you’re jonesing for your chicken taco shell fix, now is the time to head on over to Taco Bell!chicken chalupa, menu item, Naked Chicken Chalupa, naked taco, taco bell
