In the past, Taco Bell has been one of the better options for cheap fast food. With the prices going up on everything, that isn't always true.
Thankfully, the brand is trying to make items a bit more affordable by revamping its Cravings Value Menu. In previous years, the menu has been vast but now it's getting even bigger.
The great thing is that all of the items featured on that menu are less than $3.00 which is honestly a steal. While some of Taco Bell's singular items are under $3.00, there aren't many so it's great to see the fast-food chain branching out and adding some new and old favorites.
Whether you're craving something for lunch, need a late-night snack or just need a cheap and filling meal for dinner, you won't be able to deny Taco Bell's revamped Cravings Value Menu this year.
See some highlights from the Taco Bell Cravings Value Menu.
Before I forget to mention, there are 10 new items coming to the Cravings Value Menu so you're sure to get your money's worth. Ranging in price from $1.19 to $3.00, there are a plethora of favorites the brand is keeping along with some new items including the Double Stacked Taco for $1.99 which is a crunchy taco inside of a tortilla with nacho cheese.
In addition, you can also get a Cheesy Double Beef Burrito for $2.79 which is: "Beefy, cheesy flavors featuring double the seasoned beef, seasoned rice, nacho cheese sauce, fiesta strips, 3-cheese blend and reduced fat sour cream, all wrapped up in a tortilla." That sounds like a great alternative to the Beefy 5-Layer Burrito. For those wanting some chicken, you can get a 3-Cheese Chicken Flatbread Melt which features: "Grilled chicken, creamy chipotle sauce and 3-cheese blend, all folded into a pillowy flatbread," for $2.29.
One of the best values on the entire Cravings Value Menu has to be the Loaded Beef Nachos which are $2.99 and feature "Nacho chips topped with seasoned beef, beans, nacho cheese sauce, red sauce, reduced fat sour cream and guacamole." Considering that chips and cheese are $2.79 at my local Taco Bell, that's an incredible deal for much more.
In addition, Taco Bell is giving more vegetarian options with its new Veggie Build-Your-Own-Cravings-Box. As with the regular Cravings box, you get the option to pick one specialty item, one classic item, one side, and a medium drink. For the specialty item, you can pick between a cheese quesadilla, Black Bean chalupa, or a Black Bean Crunchwrap Supreme and then for classics, your choices are a Bean Burrito, Spicy Potato Taco, or a Cheesy Bean and Rice Burrito. Lastly, the options for sides are chips and cheese, cinnamon twists or cheesy fiesta potatoes.
The menu will hit Taco Bells nationwide on January 11th so we don't have much longer to wait but hopefully, it'll be worth the wait. You can see the full rundown here but be sure to let us know which items you'll be trying.
