The return of the legendary Taco Bell Nacho Fries is nearly upon us. The iconic fast-food taco joint recently announced that the delicious potato lines are returning at the end of January.

Taco Bell Nacho Fries launched in 2017 and took the world by storm. Since launch, Taco Bell has pulled and returned the fries in seasons.

Thrillist first reported the news, and allegedly, Taco Bell is throwing in a new twist to the fries.

Apparently, Taco Bell is launching an “all-new flavor innovation that’s sure to receive critical and fan acclaim,” a spokesperson said. Taco Bell announced the news in a tweet.

Exactly what this flavor innovation consists of is a mystery. All we know is that we’re glad the fries are coming back. Too long have we dealt with the rolled chicken tacos and XL Chalupas without the satisfying crispiness of the deliciously seasoned Nacho Fries.

Taco Bell sure didn’t invent the french fry dunked in nacho cheese, but they made it affordable, delicious and available to the masses.

Nacho Fries are hitting the restaurants on Jan. 30, 2020.

More Taco Bell

Are you depressed that no one is hiring unboxing bloggers in your hometown? Are you frustrated that you can’t feed your comic book habit on the measly streaming money your cutting edge grind-trap project is generating? Well cheer up, friends: Taco Bell is coming to your rescue with decent salaries.

According to a recent article in Bloomberg, the fast food institution is discussing how to implement yearly salaries of up to $100,000. Citing an increasingly rough labor market, the Mexican fast food chain is thinking that if you pay them, they won’t just come: They’ll stay.

The article says that managers of company-owned Taco Bell stores make an average of $50,000 to $80,000 in yearly salary. The chain is testing the higher-salary experiment in various locations in Northeast and Midwest America. The idea of significantly boosting fast-food workers’ wages has been explored with successful results from companies like In-N-Out Burger and Detroit’s Moo Cluck Moo.

Employees will also now be paid for up to 24 hours of sick time, according to the Los Angeles Times. The perk was previously only offered for managers, but now staff that has worked a minimum of 90 days will enjoy the same option.

So here’s to the masses who can’t deliver lyrical flow that doesn’t sound like they just woke up unexpectedly from a drank bender. Taco Bell is handing out baller wages to get you on your path. Because at the end of the 5:30 a.m. night shift, getting all the stuff right in a seven-layer burrito is more important than yelling about the Lamborghini you’ll never drive with a Cardi B clone riding shotgun.

And as a matter of fact, yes, we do want sauce with that…
