If there’s one thing Taco Bell has perfected, it’s the fast-food box meal. I know that box meals haven’t been the most popular, but the chain has mastered it.

Ever since the $5.00 box was introduced, it was always a good value. While the price has increased since then, the value is still there.

In 2023, the fast-food chain is taking things up a notch. The Build Your Own Cravings box was such a hit and now it’s going to be even bigger. The “Classic Combo” box featured a specialty item, a classic item, a side, and a fountain drink.

There were a few changes for the “Deluxe Build Your Own Cravings Box” so let’s get into what you can get with this latest revamp to a beloved Taco Bell item.

The Taco Bell Cravings Box is deluxe with options and its price.

Currently, a classic Cravings box will run you about $5.99 while the Deluxe version will run you around 3 dollars more at $8.99. However, there are a few key changes that might make this a better deal for certain customers who are looking for a bit more variety.

For the first option, you can either get a grilled cheese burrito, Doritos cheesy gordita crunch, a chalupa supreme with steak, or a burrito supreme. Then for the second item, you can choose between a beefy melt burrito, a beefy 5-layer burrito, or a bean burrito. The other options require an upcharge but you could get a Doritos locos taco or a crunchy or soft taco supreme.

Then for the “third” item, you get the same choices as the previous one, and then for your “side,” your options are chips and cheese, a cheesy roll-up, or Cinnabon Delights. Lastly for a drink, you have all the typical choices. While there are more options, it’s clear that a lot of my fellow Taco Bell lovers will be clamoring for this option.

While Taco Bell is still on the lower end of fast-food pricing, it can get expensive. That’s why these craving boxes have always been a mainstay when I’m ordering. Since they’re so customizable too, it’s a good choice if you’re not sure exactly what you want. Having a little bit of everything tends to take the guesswork out of it.

I’m a fan of the original Cravings box as I feel like it’s a pretty good deal. Even so, I’d love to know your feelings, my fellow Guilty Eaters.
