The decision-makers at Taco Bell are apparently feeling all kinds of nostalgic these days. Because not only have signs pointed to the return of the beloved Mexican Pizza to the Taco Bell menu soon. But the fast-food chain has also teamed up with Klondike to resurrect another popular item, several years after pulling it from the menu: The Klondike Choco Taco.

If you never got the chance to destroy your diet with one of these artery-cloggers last time around, the treat is a pretty straightforward ice cream and taco mashup. It’s got, according to Taco Bell, a crunchy, thick-coated chocoately outside, while the inside is packed with fudge-swirled ice cream that’s also topped with peanuts. There’s one important fact you need to know, however, about where this treat is available.

Returning to the Taco Bell Menu

Unfortunately, this item is only being added back to the Taco Bell menu for a limited time in select Los Angeles and Milwaukee locations. The chain is testing the popularity of the Choco Taco at 20 restaurant locations across both cities. “We’re excited to reunite with our partners at Klondike and test the iconic Choco Taco with today’s consumer,” Taco Bell’s Global Chief Food Innovation Officer, Liz Matthews, said in a news release.

“To bring back such a nostalgic favorite after a seven year absence is special and to do it during our 60th anniversary was the perfect fit.”

The Choco Taco only costs $2.99 plus tax. And below, you’ll find all the locations where you can get one.

Taco Bell Mexican Pizza coming back 2022

This is not, however, the nostalgic menu item whose return has actually been rumored for a few months now. And which loyal Taco Bell customers have been anticipating, thanks to a popular food blogger, to come back on to the chain’s menu as soon as April.

We’re referring, of course, to the Mexican Pizza, which Taco Bell discontinued in 2020. Here’s what Taco Bell said back in September, in tandem with a menu revamp that led it to say goodbye to not only the Mexican Pizza. But also to some other menu items, like pico de gallo and shredded chicken.

The good news, meanwhile, is that the Mexican Pizza might not even be coming back solely in its original form. “Rumor has it that a range of new and improved versions will be on the menu,” reports to the food news website Mashed. “Including a ‘double cheesy’ version, one that includes spicy chorizo, and another with bacon/ranch influences. A dessert option may also make an appearance.”

Heck, even Dolly Parton has called for the return of the Mexican Pizza to the menu. Which, rumor has it, will happen either in April or May.
