After exciting fans with a March announcement about putting potatoes back on the menu, Taco Bell recently shared another piece of mouthwatering news—the fast-food chain has launched two new seasonings that can be found at grocery stores.
That’s right! Now everything you eat, from your morning scrambled eggs to your pasta dinner, can have a little taste of Taco Bell. The new all-purpose seasoning will be available in two flavors: hot or mild. (Related: McDonald’s Is Making These 8 Major Upgrades.)
This is not the brand’s first grocery product. You can find hot sauces, taco shells, salsas, shredded cheese mixes, and cheese dips at major retailers already. The brand even sells 1-ounce taco seasoning packets in stores. However, the new seasonings are meant to be more versatile and extending beyond Taco Tuesday to enhance your salads, chicken, tofu, and more. Instead of small packets, the new products come in large, 6.25-ounce canisters.
So what exactly is in the seasoning? According to the label, salt, garlic, onion, paprika, and cayenne pepper are included in the ingredients.
“Shake it on, mix it in, and add the classic Taco Bell flavor you crave to your favorite recipes, snacks, and more,” the description says. This will especially come in handy when you’re craving Taco Bell but want to make a healthier meal. We envision a hearty salad or a traybake with a little sprinkle of Taco Bell magic.
While shoppers have noticed the new seasoning blends in stores like Meijer, Phelps Market, Foodland, and Fairplay Foods, we weren’t able to buy it online, at least not yet. If you see it at your local grocer, you’ll want to grab a canister or two. If it’s not there yet, it will likely be there soon. In the meantime, you can still get any number of other Taco Bell retail items from these stores as well as Walmart, Kroger, and more.
