Crispitos are back!
According to several Alabama school system social media sites the popular taquito made by Tyson is returning to school lunchrooms.
The production of the beloved snack was halted at the beginning of the school year in August 2021. Tyson blamed a shortage of tortillas and workers as the reason for the removal of the menu item.
Both the Jefferson County Schools Child Nutrition Program and the Etowah County Schools Child Nutrition Program celebrated online this past Friday the return of crispitos.
From Jefferson County:
The Bama Buzz intern Summer Guffey, explained why Alabama students love the crunchy Mexican dish.
“Back in high school, I would bring my lunch except when crispitos were on the menu. We treated Crispito Day like a special holiday, they were that good—at least for a public school’s lunchroom.”
