Taco Bell Has Quietly Discontinued Caramel Apple Empanadas

Caramel Apple Empanadas are no longer being sold at Taco Bell and were quietly discontinued sometime in the spring of this year.

The deep-fried dessert was a mainstay of Taco Bell's value menu for over a decade and featured a filling of diced apples in a creamy caramel sauce along with a bubbly crispy shell.

I reached out to the chain for comment and received the following response from a Taco Bell spokesperson, "Those were a big hit but exited menus earlier this year, while the Cinnamon Twists and Cinnabon Delights (2, 4 or 12 pack) remain!"

It seems like they were supplanted by Cinnabon Delights and now join Churros, Brownie Sandwiches, and Cookie Sandwiches in Taco Bell's dessert graveyard.

Another Taco Bell menu item that bowed out this spring was the Gordita Supreme, which is survived by the Chalupa Supreme (which is the same but made with a deep-fried Gordita shell) and, oddly enough, the Cheesy Gordita Crunch (which means they still have Gordita shell on hand and could potentially make you one, although your mileage may vary).

Update 8/2/219: I received a follow-up statement from a Taco Bell spokesperson, "Even the sweetest things in life don’t last forever. While we are sad to confirm that the beloved Caramel Apple Empanada is no longer on menus nationwide, we encourage fans to spread their appreciation to our other amazing desserts."
