Taco Bell is About to Shake Up the Value Wars

December 14, 2018

"Taco Bell’s year-long mission to win the value wars accelerated, in some fashion, when McDonald’s rolled out its $1 $2 $3 Dollar Menu at the beginning of 2018. The YUM! Brands chain responded by saying it would expand its $1 offerings by another 20 items, continuing a trend that’s built over the years. Taco Bell had 11 items for $1 in 2014 and more than doubled that by 2018. Taco Bell surpassed its goal to add 20 new $1 products this year, including the Grilled Fiesta Potato Breakfast Burrito, Spicy Tostada, and Chicken Mini Quesadilla. Not to mention the wildly succesful Nacho Fries.


The latest value iteration for Taco Bell is one the chain said goes as big on abundance as it does on price point.


“In a time when value menus are either shrinking portion sizes, walking away from creating innovative $1 products, or forcing fans to buy food they don't want, Taco Bell is doing something, well, beyond belief,” the brand said in a release.

The offerings no longer stick to the $1 mark, but rather build from another fast-food sweet spot: $5 and below.

Who's Behind The Site

My name is Blake and I've eaten at Taco Bell throughout my whole life, becoming an avid fan about 6 years ago. I've had every vegetarian applicable item that has come out since 2014. In 2015, I spent 8 months working at a Taco Bell (in between jobs). My high school graduation party was in a Taco Bell and I have a cameo in the famous "senior pictures at Taco Bell" (the guy taking the order)

In these past years I've built up this site to be the home base for all other Taco Bell fans and have built a growing community through Reddit and other social media platforms. My main goal is to keep a strong community of consumers informed and together with our appreciation for the brand.


A life goal of mine is to visit the Taco Bell HQ and meet the people who work hard to make this chain so great, then continue to work with them on events and promotions to make people happy.

Thanks for reading, hope you enjoy the site!
