IRVINE, Calif. — Taco Bell is sweetening up its dessert offerings, with a new under-$1 menu, which premiered in the U.S. yesterday.
“Our consumers told us they’d like to see the ‘sweeter’ side of Taco Bell’s menu, and, as a result, we are launching nationally our new desserts menu,” reads a press release, which was quoted on Business Insider.
Three new desserts have been introduced, including a Caramel Apple Empanada, a pastry pocket filled with warm apples in caramel sauce; Churro, a Mexican doughnut-dusted in cinnamon sugar; and a cookie sandwich made with two triangle-shaped cookies and filled with vanilla cream.
In other product news, Taco Bell has launched XXL Steak Nachos, topped with beans, a three-cheese blend, warm nacho cheese sauce, guacamole, pico de gallo, reduced-fat sour cream and steak. And, in August, the chain began testing a new breakfast menu, called “FirstMeal,” in some Western States. It features the new A.M. Crunchwrap and Mtn Dew A.M., a combination of Mountain Dew and Tropicana Orange Juice mixed in-store.
