Along with the nationwide value menu updates, Taco Bell is also testing two additional $1 options at its locations in select markets. First up is the new $1 Crispy Chicken Taco, which features the chain's chicken nugget-like Naked Chicken Chips and standard taco fillings like cheese, lettuce, and sour cream. And, finally, the chain is testing the longtime fan-favorite Beefy Crunch Burrito for $1, teasing another potential comeback on menus nationwide. While T-Bell didn't specify where you can find the former test item, it said the latter will be available at 30 restaurants in Chattanooga, Tennessee as of April 4.
All said, the additions may not be as exciting as the launch of an fried/inverted/cheese covered/otherwise insane stunt food, but they're good news for anyone hoping to save a couple of bucks. And in case you lost track, Taco Bell said the menu items mark the halfway point in delivering on its promise to introduce 20 new $1 menu items in 2018 to take on McDonald's and its revamped Dollar Menu. With at least another 10 cheap menu items on the way, the value menu war will only heat up from here.
