Taco Bell Replaces Cantina Bell Menu Items With Higher-Protein Meals

July 10, 2014: 12:00 AM EST
Taco Bell has jumped on the protein bandwagon with the launch of Cantina Power bowls and burritos that also offer fewer carbs. The Cantina Power line, packed with double the meat and 20 grams of protein, replaces Cantina Bell burritos and bowls. It’s a fairly crowded bandwagon, now that food chains like Panera Bread and Subway have begun including more protein and other ingredients considered more healthful. A Taco Bell exec, noting that its customers aren’t looking for diet food, said, “Cantina Power is a big step forward in pleasing customers who like to eat a lot of protein.” Cantina Power menu items will remain less than 500 calories each and cost about the same as the Cantina Bell items.
