Taco Bell fans will have an enlarged menu when certain famous meals, including the much-loved Bacon Club Chalupa, return for a short time. The Bacon Club Chalupa returned to local Taco Bell outlets on March 8 and customers have been over the moon about the same. It will only be available for a short time, so individuals have been rushing to their closest outlets to get their hands on the much-loved item.


Apart from the Bacon Club Chalupa, the company has also brought back the Cantina Crispy Melt Taco among other dishes, which customers can get their hands on for a certain period of time.

Taco Bell's Bacon Club Chalupa ingredients

The Bacon Club Chalupa consists of grilled chicken, bacon, avocado ranch sauce, lettuce, chopped tomatoes, and a three-cheese blend, which are served in a warm chalupa shell. For $8.99, customers can have the Bacon Club Chalupa with two Crunchy Tacos and a big drink. (Local prices may differ.)

Since its inception, the Bacon Club Chalupa has been one of the most popular dishes on the Taco Bell menu.


However, much like many other goods that come and go, it seems to disappear just a little while after being accessible to customers. This is a marketing strategy that the company has honed over time.

With a community of taco-loving enthusiasts, some check social media daily for word on when one of their favorites may return.
