Dolly Parton isn’t wasting any time celebrating the return of the Mexican Pizza, and her excitement is everything. Parton shared a video on Instagram on Thursday (May 19), gushing over the iconic Taco Bell menu item.
“I have been longing for this moment for so long! It’s finally here!” Parton exclaims, picking up her Mexican Pizza and opening the box. “Oh, look at that. Is that not beautiful? …It looks almost too good to eat, but I’m gonna!”
Digging into the Mexican Pizza, Parton said “it was worth the wait.”
The beloved country legend is also teaming up with the popular fast food chain for a musical event dedicated to the menu item. “Mexican Pizza The Musical” is “really happening,” Taco Bell previously confirmed, setting the event to premiere live on TikTok on May 26, one week after bringing back the pizza. The musical appears to be “based on the true story of the internet losing its mind.” Taco Bell is “telling the Mexican Pizza fan story – in song! Tune in for the live premiere of #MexicanPizzaTheMusical to celebrate with fans like you who helped bring it back,” Taco Bell explains of the event, which is set for 7 p.m.
