Fast food favorite Taco Bell will be making changes to its menu that may leave some fans in heartbreak.

The chain has announced that it will be simplifying its menu starting August 13, which will retire some old favorites.

Taco Bell says that the approach comes after months of analyzing the new way restaurants are operated.

“While change is hard, a simplified menu and innovation process will leave room for new fan favorites, continued progress in categories such as plant-based diets, and even opportunities for the return of some classics on a limited-time basis,” a press release from the restaurant said.

Several items that will be discontinued include the Spicy Potato Soft Taco, Beefy Fritos Burrito, Spicy Tostada and Nachos Supreme among others.

Taco Bell also revealed options that will be added to the new, streamlined menu including the $5 Grande Nachos Box and the new Beef Burrito.
