UPCOMING Experiences 

2021 Experiences

There will only be 5 experiences in 2021, spanning 2-3 months each. Each experience is expected to have multiple LTOs or even mid-experience releases.

The Quesalupa has been rumored to come back in 2021, as well as potatoes as an ingredient and the mexican pizza return (as an LTO).

In 2021, we will expect another console giveaway. Depending on how Taco Bell separates the experience this could be E4 or E5.

E1 (12/24/20 - 3/10/21)


Nacho Fries, Bacon Club Chalupa, possibly two new freezes 

Welcome back Nacho Fries and Nacho Fries Bellgrande! The Bacon Club Chalupa was a menu item beginning in 2008; it's a standard chalupa shell filled with grilled chicken, bacon, avocado ranch dressing (originally a creamy club sauce), lettuce, shredded cheese, and diced tomatoes. In July 2015, the chalupa returned at an LTO from July-August.

The loaded nacho taco will return for $1 each.
