The Taco Bell French fry has been the opus of hype, the fief of fanfare, for the past few months. Now, after a Blink 182-related tease and some burrito tests in West Virginia, the fried goods are really here, and boy, are they cheesy.

On Tuesday, fast food chain Taco Bell announced that after much speculation, it would indeed be releasing its buzz-inducing Nacho Fries beginning January 25th. Joining the fast food arms race for low-price menu items, the Nacho Fries will be one of 20 new, limited-edition additions to the Taco Bell menu that will be sold for just $1. Yes, you heard that right: the Nacho Fries are only $1.

One single Washington will get you a sleeve of crispy fries, sprinkled with Mexican seasoning and served with a side of warm, yellow nacho cheese. Not quite epic enough? For $2.49, make it Nacho Fries Supreme. Kick it up to $3.49 and you’ve got yourself Nach Fries Bell Grande, with beef, pico de gallo, sour cream and, of course, nacho cheese.

Looking for more than a snack? The $5 bonus box will get you fries, a Doritos Locos Taco, a Cheesy Gordita Crunch and a medium drink.

Always inclined to cherish a good build-up, Taco Bell hinted in its press release that the January 25th launch would be “fit for the big screen,” and would include “some award-worthy surprises.” Should we be expecting Taco Bell: The Movie? Looks like we’ll have to stay tuned.
