The news, which sent social

Reddit about a series of dishes
expected to disappear in mid-August.
The Reddit user, who is a verified
employee at the fast-food chain, shared
that many beloved items were getting the ax.
Among those cuts: All potato items,
the 7-layer burrito, the spicy tostada and the triple-layer nachos.
