a little backstory:
Years back Taco Bell was THE destination to get your stomach full on short money. In the begining there were three different burritos for .99¢, tacos went for .89¢, and a number of different side items also clocked in at under $1.00. Now adays an Individual taco is $1.09, the afformentioned burritos have jumped to $1.59 save the original bean burrito, but who the hell wants a plain bean burrito? Left to fill the void of -$1.00 quasi mexican feasting is an endless string of promotional items which when bad seem to last forever (cheesy flatbread) and when good are gone too soon (beefy crunch burrito). The cheesy flatbread had me avoiding TB for months, while the BCB saw me 3-4 times a week. I would also like to mention the originally priced $1.99 combo menu has now also jumped up to $2.59, in these economic conditions where every nickel and dime matters this is a travesty in my eyes.
