"Major movements tend to have a tipping point—that moment when an idea grabs ahold of enough individuals that it transforms into a full-blown phenomenon. (Yes, not to brag, but I read Malcolm Gladwell’s book.) For fans of Taco Bell’s Mexican Pizza, they’re hoping that breakthrough happens at 100,000 signatures.

Last month, when Taco Bell announced another—and supposedly “final”—cut to its menu to help streamline operations, the forthcoming loss of the chain’s Mexican Pizza was the headline-grabbing item. “We know some fans may be sad to see this one go, we are too,” the company sympathized, suggesting diehards go eat as many as they can before the unique pie officially disappears on November 5.

But many of those fans were not prepared to watch it go in silence. As soon as rumors spread that the beloved menu item was getting the ax, a Change.org petition was created begging Taco Bell to “Save the Mexican Pizza.” And despite a slightly slow start that took nearly a month to get from 50,000 to 75,000 supporters, the number of signatures has suddenly exploded: Over the past four days, another 25,000 supporters have jumped on board, pushing the petition past 100,000. As I write this, the number has surged past 103,000 people with multiple new names coming through every minute."
