Taco Bell’s Mexican Pizza first appeared on the fast-food chain’s menu in 1985 and remained there until it was abruptly removed in November 2020, according to the New York Post. Food lovers quickly emerged to request the return of the infamous pizza, and Parton was one of many who spoke out about this topic.

Parton’s influence is likely to have played a role in the reinstatement of Mexican Pizza to the Taco Bell menu, as the franchise has promised to bring it back by May 19.

“While rumors of the Mexican Pizza’s return have been swirling for months, it hasn’t been publicly confirmed until now,”  Taco Bell said in a statement.
