Three years ago, Taco Bell announced its value menu, with items listed at $1 each.

The fast-food chain recently updated the release they sent out on Aug. 14, 2014, calling it the (Not) New $1 Menu. Instead of typing a new document, it looks as if someone grabbed a purple pen and edited it by hand.

In the release, Taco Bell is increasing its value menu from 11 to more than 20 items, including the $1 Stacker – a folded quesadilla filled with ground beef, a three-cheese blend and nacho cheese sauce – coming Dec. 21.

The company points out that, unlike other restaurants’ menus, items on its menus are $1.

“We believe passionately that people should have more than just the ability to eat for $1; they should feel like they can feast for $1,” Marisa Thalberg, Taco Bell Corp. chief marketing officer, wrote in the updated release. “We are (and always have been) completely committed to coming up with the most craveable, creative menu items that set the bar for what great food at a great value should be.”
