LAS VEGAS, NEVADA - MARCH 30: An exterior view shows a sign at a Taco Bell restaurant on March 30, 2020 in Las Vegas, Nevada. Taco Bell Corp. announced that on March 31, 2020, the company will give everyone in the country one free beef nacho cheese Doritos Locos Taco, no purchase necessary, to drive-thru customers at participating locations while supplies last as a way of thanking people who are helping their communities in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic. The company also announced it would relaunch its Round Up program, which gives customers the option to "round up" their order total to the nearest dollar, to raise funds for the No Kid Hungry campaign. The Taco Bell Foundation will also be donating $1 million to the campaign. (Photo by Ethan Miller/Getty Images)

The news broke back in July that Taco Bell would be removing some items from its menu “in an effort to streamline operations,” while eliminating all of its potato options outright.

Among the casualties were the Grilled Steak Soft Taco, Loaded Grillers (Cheesy Potato, Beefy Nacho), the 7-Layer Burrito, the Quesarito, and the Beefy Fritos Burrito. (there’s a bunch more)

Bryant Hoban of O’Fallon Missouri list them for sale on Facebook Marketplace for the low low price of only $200. According to the listing, the tacos are in “mint condition” and were brought straight “from drive through to freezer.” “These babies are rare!” the ad reads. “Never been eaten!”

“I’ve had this idea of ‘investment sandwiches’ where, like, you’d buy a limited-offer sandwich in bulk, freeze it, and then sell it later for a profit,” Hoban explains. “You know, like the McRib — McDonald’s only offers it once a year, but the demand doesn’t go away.

So far, things are going according to plan. Hoban says he’s already sold two of the frozen tacos for $70 each.
