Taco Bell Nacho Fries return with Demolition Man pop-up


Nacho Fries return to Taco Bell this summer. Even more exciting is a Demolition Man pop-up gives fans a glimpse of a Taco Bell utopia.

The popular Nacho Fries come back to the Taco Bell menu. When this menu item launched earlier this year, the dish was hugely successful. Who would have thought that this menu item would have had such a cult following. Since the food had such a fan base, the fast food giant is partnering with a movie that also has a cult following, Demolition Man.

To celebrate the re-introduction of the Nacho Fries, the brand is celebrating another cult classic, Demolition Man. This year marks the 25th anniversary of the sci-fiction movie. In that classic movie, every restaurant was Taco Bell. It survived the Franchise Wars. For fans of the fast good giant, this 2032 prediction is the ultimate food fantasy.

Nacho Fries will be available for a limited time a la carte for $1.29 and also served Supreme for $2.49 or BellGrande for $3.49, topped with classic Taco Bell add-ons including beef, nacho cheese sauce, tomatoes and sour cream and also in a $5 box with Nacho Fries, a Doritos® Locos Taco, a Beefy 5-Layer Burrito and Medium Drink.

As excitement builds for the July 12 re-launch, the brand has created a fake movie trailer, Web of Fries I,  for the menu item. The trailer plays off the movie and creates an interesting take on the future of food. Could the world be filled with Locos Tacos and nachos?
