Plenty of exciting developments have been underway at Taco Bell lately between the return of its super popular taco subscription service and the test launches of brand-new Baja Blast-inspired products. Now, Taco Bell fans have even more reasons to get excited as the chain rolls out its latest batch of menu items.

Taco Bell just added five items to the menu, giving customers a new set of options to satiate their appetites. They include some returning favorites and a couple of brand-new innovations, like the chain's first-ever vegan item to be offered on a national basis.

Alongside the release of these new items, Taco Bell also just launched a special new promotion perfect for customers who need to feed a small crowd. The new Build Your Own Meal for 4 deal allows fans to choose from a list of tacos, burritos, and sides to create a feast for around $24.99, though exact prices may vary. Diehard fans should also keep close tabs on the Taco Bell app in the near future, since the chain has a series of exciting in-app deals lined up for the coming weeks.

In the meantime, here are the five items that just hit Taco Bell's menu!

Each Cheesy Street Chalupa will cost between $5.49 and $5.99 depending on the Taco Bell store.

They're back again—and bigger than ever! Taco Bell's famous Nacho Fries, a hugely popular limited-time offering that comes back a couple of times every year, just returned to menus nationwide last month.

For the uninitiated, these crispy spuds are coated in bold spices and served with a side of hot nacho cheese dipping sauce. But for this release, Taco Bell is selling its Nacho Fries in large sizes for the very first time, perfect for customers who want to share or just have an extra large appetite.

Customers can snag a large order of the fries for a suggested price of $2.99.

This new addition is a major milestone for Taco Bell. The chain's brand-new Nacho Fries with Vegan Nacho Sauce just hit menus nationwide on Oct. 12. Taco Bell has tested vegan items in select markets in the past, like the Vegan Crunchwrap that launched in just a couple cities back in June. However, the Nacho Fries with Vegan Nacho Sauce is the first vegan item that Taco Bell is selling on a national scale.

A regular order of the vegan Nacho Fries is selling for a suggested price of $2.19, while large orders are selling for $2.99. Just don't wait too long to snag an order if you're hoping to try the new vegan item. It'll only be available for a limited time and while supplies last.

Only available in Minneapolis, Minn., Taco Bell is currently testing brand-new Crispy Chicken Nuggets. The nuggets are made from all-white meat chicken breast that's marinated in spiced jalapeño buttermilk then breaded and fried.

The nuggets are available in five-piece and 10-piece orders. The smaller size is selling for between $3.99 and $4.99, while the larger size is selling for $6.99 to $8.99.
