Famous for its dollar menu, McDonald’s is bringing back a new bargain menu that includes $1 items, as well as more expensive items that could cost $2 or even $3.

The new menu will be called the “$1 $2 $3 Dollar Menu.”

McDonald’s first launched its dollar menu in the 1990s before tweaking it to include some higher-priced items in 2013 amid a sales dip, according to CNNMoney.

“We built this new menu with variety and value firmly in mind,” said McDonald's USA President Chris Kempczinski, in a statement. “Our new value menu includes surprises like our completely new Classic Chicken sandwich, the inclusion of our Happy Meal and more. Whatever our guests crave — a delicious meal, a new taste, a midday snack or a family treat — they will find that $1 $2 $3 Dollar Menu provides them with value and choice.”

So what can you expect to see in the new menu?

For $1:

  • Sausage burritos
  • McChicken sandwiches
  • Cheeseburgers
  • Any size soft drink
For $2:

  • Sausage McGriddles
  • Two-piece buttermilk crispy tenders
  • Bacon McDouble
  • Small McCafe beverage
For $3:

  • Sausage McMuffin with egg
  • New Classic Chicken sandwich
  • Triple cheeseburger
  • Happy Meal
The new menu launches on Jan. 4, according to ABC News, and will be a “permanent” part of the company’s meal plan.

McDonald’s has made several changes in the last year. The company axed its highly popular Hi-C orange drink in May, replacing it with Sprite TropicBerry instead.

The company also added a “Frork” device — a fork made of french fries — and a new Chicken Big Mac sandwich.

McDonald's expanded with ideas on the international front, as well, adding a delivery service in the United Kingdom and “phone lockers” — where families can lock up their cellphones so they can have a conversation around a McDonald’s dinner — in Singapore locations.

McDonald’s first started seeing a sales slump in 2014. The company added back its all-day breakfast to combat the slump, but it still hasn't recovered, according to USA Today.

The company hopes to expand to 4,000 restaurants by the end of 2018.
