IRVINE, CA (WBOY) — Taco Bell announced Thursday the return of its “Volcanic Menu,” which is derived from an item introduced nearly three decades ago in 1995.
The Volcano menu, which will be available in late June, includes three main offerings: the Volcano Burrito, the Volcano Taco and an optional “Lava Sauce” (spicy cheese sauce) that can be added to any menu item.
The Volcano Burrito was the first Volcano-type item to debut on Taco Bell’s menu in 1995 as a promotional tie-in to the movie Congo, according to Taco Bell online resource hosted by Fandom, which was created and edited by fans. A representative for Taco Bell could not be reached to confirm the debut dates. Advertising video Released at the time of its debut, the Volcano Burrito details its ingredients, which include seasoned beef, beans, rice, a three-cheese blend, and “fiery red sauce.”
Other subjects, including Taco Volcano, Volcano Nachos and lava dip (which accompanied those dishes) debuted on the menu more than a decade later and remained for several years, according to the Taco Bell Fandom page.
Taco Bell says its Volcano Menu has become a cult favorite among customers who have “relentlessly championed its return,” Taco Bell said. According to the company, some even petitioned the restaurant to put the items back on the menu.
Volcano Menu offers will be available at participating locations beginning June 27, 2023 for Taco Bell Rewards members and June 29 for everyone else.
