Last year, Taco Bell cut a number of items from its menu, including two dishes that featured its seasoned potato bites: Cheesy Fiesta Potatoes and the Spicy Potato Soft Taco. Those two items will be back in restaurants on March 11, the chain announced on Thursday.
Rumors of potatoes getting axed started to swirl last summer after a Reddit user, identified as a verified employee, said potatoes were leaving the menu. Taco Bell soon confirmed the news, leading to a stream of dismay online.
The potatoes were booted from Taco Bell’s menu in August.
“I feel like I’ve almost heard from everybody in the country on the potato bites,” said Liz Matthews, Taco Bell’s global chief food innovation officer. “This was the one that really hit home for people,” she said, noting that Taco Bell got more feedback on this particular decision than it expected.
