Taco Bell has had no shortage of unconventional ideas in recent months, from quesadillas filled with Kit Kats to a clothing line collaboration with Forever 21. But the chain has resisted making one of its customers most persistent requests a permanent item: french fries.
The introduction of french fries to Taco Bell’s American locations has long been near the top of its customers’ wish lists, and a recent tweet from Taco Bell’s Twitter account to Blink-182 bassist Mark Hoppus (yes, you read that correctly) hinted that those dreams may become a reality. Hoppus praised Taco Bell but bemoaned its lack of french fries in an October 29 tweet, to which Taco Bell replied, “That just might change soon, Mark.

The chain has sold loaded fries at its international locations for years, but has yet to introduce them on a wide scale in the United States. Recently, it began testing them in California and West Virginia, though one of our readers had mixed feelings about them.
