TACO Bell has apparently added a new meat option to its menu, but some fans are disappointed with its limited availability.
Fans of the restaurant chain have taken to social media in recent weeks to celebrate the announced return of Kalua Pork menu items.
Kalua Pork has been seen on the menu in limited offerings since 2008.
Fans say it’s back on the menu at Taco Bell, but it’s only available to customers in Hawaii.
Pork, a shredded smoked meat, is a main dish in many traditional Hawaiian dishes, reports Pop Culture.
Taco Bell reportedly enlisted the help of a local source to provide the rarely seen meat option.
Reddit users in Hawaii have confirmed the reappearance of the meat option by posting photos of the Taco Bell menu.
A user joked about planning a trip to Hawaii after hearing positive reviews about the pork.
“My boss just got back from Hawaii and she said this was the best thing she’s ever had at taco bell…I’m planning my trip to Hawaii now!”
Other fans have called for the restaurant chain to offer the meat option nationwide.
“Would love to see this all over the country,” said one commenter.
The Sun contacted Taco Bell on Friday for more information on the availability of Kalua pork.
This isn’t the first time Taco Bell has added meat options to its menu.
In previous years, Taco Bell introduced carnitas, another version of pulled pork, to the menu at Taco Bell Cantina locations.
In 2021, the restaurant chain launched meat alternatives at one location in California.
Like the original tacos, the meatless option came with sour cream, cheese, shredded lettuce, and tomatoes.
