As the season of giving approaches, Taco John’s has the perfect present for its fans – the return of its famously funky Apple Grande dessert! Apple Grande is making a limited time comeback, accompanied by an exclusive holiday merch drop featuring a festive sweater, a Taco John’s ornament, and an Apple Grande inspired candle that will have you going back for more.

Apple Grande is a weird yet delicious dessert that layers warm apple pie filling, shredded all-natural Cheddar cheese, and a sprinkle of red candy seasoning on top of a crispy cinnamon-sugar tortilla. Fans have been requesting the return of this treat since 2019, and Taco John’s is fulfilling their wish. “We’re thrilled to launch our holiday merch site, with sweaters showcasing our famously unique dessert for fans to cherish for years to come!” says Taco John’s Chief Marketing Officer, Barry Westrum.

Taco John’s is spreading even more holiday cheer with the revival of its annual limited-time promotion, Nachos Navidad. This festive menu item features red, green and yellow chips – adding a colorful twist to its Super Nachos. It’s loaded with seasoned American beef, warm nacho cheese, refried beans, all-natural Cheddar cheese, diced tomatoes, guacamole, and sour cream. Guests can enjoy Nachos Navidad in-store, at the drive-thru, or through the Taco John’s Mobile App.

“Taco John’s isn’t just about feeding our communities, we’re also committed to serving them,” says Taco John’s President and Chief Executive Officer, Jim Creel. “It’s an honor to bring back our Nachos Navidad promotion once again this year, and we look forward to supporting some outstanding nonprofit groups during this season of giving.” For nearly three decades, Taco John’s franchisees have donated proceeds from purchases of Nachos Navidad to worthy causes within their local communities. The brand has collectively raised millions of dollars in support of hundreds of organizations in Taco John’s markets across the nation.

Additionally, guests can celebrate the holiday season by giving the gift of craveable favorites with a Taco John’s gift card. For every $25 in gift cards purchased in-store or online, guests will receive a $5 bonus card redeemable from Jan. 1 to Feb. 29, 2024.
