Available ahead of finals season, limited-edition SOS kits let Taco Bell-deprived students make their favorite menu items from the comfort of their dorms
As finals season begins across college campuses nationwide, thousands of students find themselves without a Taco Bell® restaurant within walking distance – leaving them in distress when study session cravings hit. Today, Taco Bell at Home comes to the rescue with the new “Taco Bell SOS Kit,” designed to give students on these campuses the mouthwatering Taco Bell goodness they are craving, even without a restaurant nearby. The kit features the newest Taco Bell at Home essentials from Kraft Heinz for students to recreate fan-favorite menu items.

Each kit contains a wide variety of Taco Bell at Home products, including new Mild and Hot Flavored Crunchy Taco Shells, fan-favorite Mild, Hot, Fire and Diablo sauces, and Original and Fajita seasoning packets. Kits will be delivered straight to students’ doors, courtesy of Amazon, while supplies last. Just add a protein and/or veggies and enjoy delicious Taco Bell from the comfort of the dorm.
But it wouldn’t be dorm life if students weren’t eating in bed, and with over two million views, Taco Bell in bed seems to be the obvious choice. To give students the opportunity to enjoy their craveable Taco Bell at Home creations from the comfort of their beds while preventing spills, drips, and crumbs from staining their bedding, the kit also features a never-before-seen, exclusive spill- and stain-resistant TwinXL-sized bedsheet. Simply lay the sheet over the bedding, get comfortable, and dig in.
“The Kraft Heinz Company and Taco Bell created the Taco Bell at Home line to bring the beloved and signature sauces, shells, seasonings and more from the most popular Taco Bell menu items straight to your home,” said Megan Lang, Director of Brand Communications for Taco Bell at Home. “Our goal is to give fans the opportunity to satisfy their Taco Bell cravings anywhere, anytime, even if there is not a restaurant location nearby – including the students who suffer from the misfortune of a Taco Bell-less campus as they prepare for final exams.”
Students across the country can purchase their own kit for $7.99 on TacoBellSOS.com and rest easy knowing their craving satisfaction is on the way. Those unable to get their hands on a kit can still enjoy delicious at-home creations by trying the full lineup of Taco Bell at Home products, available at major retailers nationwide.
“We have such an amazing fan base – their love and devotion to the brand is unmatched,” says Katie Taylor, Senior Director of U.S. Brand Marketing at Taco Bell. “We are thrilled that the SOS Kits and Taco Bell at Home will help bring some much-needed Taco Bell goodness to the students asking for new locations near their campuses.”
