LAKE FOREST, Calif., April 14, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — As inflation continues to soar on the prices of everything from gas to rent and more, Del Taco, the second largest Mexican restaurant in quick service* in the country, continues to offer the widest variety of drinks and fresh products under $2 in the quick service category. Starting today, Del Taco’s popular 20 under $2 menu will include three new Cheddar Chicken Rolls made with freshly grilled and marinated chicken, freshly grated cheddar cheese and a choice of three savory sauces rolled in a warm flour tortilla. Del Taco’s latest Poppers drinks are also back for a limited time in two exciting new flavors, Purple Pear Lemonade Poppers and Purple Pear Sprite.® Poppers. Topped with boba pearls bursting with kiwi juice and infused with sweet prickly pear flavor, the purple drinks explode in your mouth for a next-level sipping experience.
“In the quick-service category, we continue to see value menus disappear at a time when customers need affordable, great-tasting, freshly prepared food more than ever. We want to continue to be the first solution on their minds when inflation continues to shrink their portfolio,” said Tim Hackbardt, Chief Marketing Officer of Del Taco. “To do this well, we know that customers appreciate a wide variety of items and flavors rather than just three or four items or temporary discount offers. Del Taco’s new Chicken Cheddar Rolls delivers on that promise with three new flavors made with fresh ingredients at a price customers can count on every day on our 20 under $2 menu. Plus, while it’s not part of our budget menu, we’re equally excited to launch our next merged versions of our Poppers drinks with two new prickly pear and kiwi thirst quenchers.
Del Taco’s new Chicken Cheddar Rollers and Purple Pear Poppers drinks follow the brand’s strategy to provide customers with freshly made-to-order foods and ingredients at an incredible price with irresistible flavors they can’t find anywhere else **:
- NEW Cheddar Chicken Rolls ($1.29) are topped with freshly grilled marinated chicken, freshly shredded cheddar cheese and a choice of tangy green sauce (Original), creamy ranch sauce or chipotle sauce, rolled in a warm flour tortilla.
- NEW Purple Pear Lemonade Poppers ($1.99 for 16oz / $2.99 for 24oz) are made with vibrant colorful pearls that burst with refreshing kiwi juice blended with our purple prickly pear flavors and served on Minute Maid® ZeroSugar Lemonade and ice cream.
- NEW Purple Pear Sprite® Poppers ($1.99 for 16oz / $2.99 for 24oz) marry the sensory pleasure of the sparkling and refreshing Sprite® and bursts of kiwi flavored fizzy pearls blended with our sweet prickly pear flavors on ice.
