Taco Bell knows exactly what you want: even more $1 items. And that’s exactly what they’re giving you.
Starting tomorrow, April 5, the fast-food chain will add the $1 Triple Melt Burrito, the $1 Triple Melt Nachos, the $1 Crispy Chicken Taco and the $1 Beefy Crunch Burrito.
Of course, there’s a catch.
Following their test in Cincinnati, Ohio, last September, the Triple Melt Burrito and Triple Melt Nachos will be available nationwide. However, the Crispy Chicken Taco will only test in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, and the fan-favorite Beefy Crunch Burrito will only test in 30 Taco Bell restaurants in Chattanooga, Tennessee, starting today through mid-July. But don’t worry! If the Beefy Crunch Burrito tests well, it could hit restaurants nationwide in 2019.
“Back in 2017, we boldly shared our commitment to roll out 20 new $1 items in 2018 and are thrilled to share we’re halfway there thanks to our latest menu additions launching this week,” said Marisa Thalberg, chief brand officer at Taco Bell Corp., in a statement. “From innovative fan-favorites like the Beefy Crunch Burrito and dominating each day part by reimagining breakfast classics at the dollar price point, we continue to set the bar for what great food at a great value should be.”
The addition of the Triple Melt Nachos is no surprise. After the $1 Nacho Fries were added to the menu in January, it quickly became the most successful launch in Taco Bell history: They were ordered over 53 million times in the first five weeks of their release.
“We’re seeing fries in one out of every three orders, compared to one out of every four for DLT,” Taco Bell spokesman Matt Prince told Nation’s Restaurant News.
OK, they’re not quite the same, but we bet the nachos are equally delicious. And you know what else sounds droolworthy? The Triple Melt Burrito, complete with its “seasoned beef, shredded three-cheese blend, nacho cheese wrapped up in a warm, flour tortilla.” You can even make it a combo if you have four extra dollars in your pocket and extra room in your stomach — because who wouldn’t want a Doritos Locos Taco, cinnamon twists and a medium drink on the side?
These new $1 items follow the return of the Naked Egg Taco last month. Or you can opt for any of the 12 other items on Taco Bell’s dollar menu.
We know what our lunch plans are tomorrow…
