Taco Bell is unveiling a 2008 product game plan today that could nudge folks to forget the past and instead drive into Taco Bell in droves: cheap eats. The image-challenged chain–which has slowly but methodically regained its footing following an E. coli outbreak in late 2006 and a rat infestation at a New York City unit in 2007–will roll out a “Why Pay More?” value menu with 10 products. Four of them are new–priced at 79, 89 and 99 cents.
