Taco Bell is taking a page out of McDonald's playbook and debuting a dollar menu. According to Taco Bell, "A dollar never tasted so good."
Ranging from a Cheesy Bean and Rice Burrito to a Caramel Apple Empanada (the complete list can be seen here), Bloomberg reported that certain Taco Bell restaurants tested out the menu last year. With the introduction of a new breakfast menu and an all-paleo "Cantina Power Menu" earlier this year, Taco Bell is making big moves this year to please consumers.
Though dollar menus typically offer an enticing decrease in price for certain items, multiple sources have pointed out that specific items on the "Dollar Cravings" menu are now actually more expensive.
Regardless of an increase in price, most fans of Taco Bell seem pretty happy to usher in this "new era" of dining at the fast food joint:
You know damn well I'm gonna go to Taco Bell tomorrow and buy the entire Dollar Cravings Menu!!!
