In the age of rising inflation, everything that tempts our eye seems to burn a hole in our pockets. Every dollar we own seems to hold lesser and lesser value in the market these days. If you present a dollar to anyone in the US, you will probably be mocked at because so little can be bought with a mere dollar. Except one place. A place which is dear to the millions of foodies all across the globe, the place that teases your inner senses by pampering you with quality food for just a dollar. Yes, you guessed it right! I am referring to the international fast-food franchise Taco Bell and its exclusive Taco Bell Value Menu
Originally conceptualized by Glen Bell, who opened a modest hot-dog stand called Bell’s Drive-In in California, Taco Bell is now an international fast-food giant owned by Pepsico and boasts of more than 6500 restaurants serving 2 billion eager customers every year. So what makes Taco Bell stand out? Surely it can’t be just the quality of the food served because every fast-food joint generally has that aspect covered. Quality can get you so far but Taco Bell has clearly surpassed inhuman heights in terms of popularity with its customers. Two words explain it all: ‘Dollar Cravings’. The brains behind Taco Bell are clearly not just culinary geniuses with razor sharp taste buds, they also possess an acute sense of strategic marketing and this is where the ‘Dollar Cravings’ value menu came in.
As many as 11 delicious items on the Taco Bell Dollar Menu cost a mere dollar. While this seems unbelievable, it is one of the smartest ideas put forth by Taco Bell. How many of us are tempted to choose a dish based on its price? Nobody wishes to shell out an insane amount when quality food is available for just a dollar. So let’s delve a little deeper into the Taco Bell Dollar Menu.Consisting of 11 items priced at $1, these items include different types of tacos, burritos, rolls, quesadillas, triple layered nachos as well as tostadas. Have a sweet tooth? No worries. They have caramel apple flavoured desserts as well as cinnamon twists. Still not satisfied? Taco Bell gives a free rein to their customers to customize their meal by providing as many as 15 tasty upgrades which are priced between $0.2 to $0.5. You can even go Fresco and replace your cheese and sour cream with pico de gallo, a scrumptious Mexican salad.
Who knew that a dollar could bring so much happiness? Taco Bell has successfully proven that it isn’t mandatory to have a fat wallet to enjoy some mouthwatering Mexican food. It may not be the fanciest dish you will find in the country but it certainly will not be far behind in terms of taste. Apart from this, Taco Bell also boasts of an impressive website which makes online ordering a breeze. This means that you don’t have to take the trouble to find an outlet to enjoy these delicious dishes. And if you have a little more money to spend and you can go ahead and treat yourself to a combo meal with drinks, sweets and sides. They also take care of personal preferences by giving the vegetarians a separate column to choose from on their website.
If you aren’t convinced already, I’ll let you in on another secret. Taco Bell takes care of the nutritive value in each dish by providing information on the calorie intake and also distributes gift cards and coupons. Isn’t your mouth watering already? So go ahead and give yourself that well deserved Taco treat! After all, your taste buds need some pampering too.
