New breakfast not worth the trip

Taco Bell launched its breakfast cuisine March 27. While the menu consists of several different options, its two lead items were the Waffle Taco and A.M. Crunchwrap.

A.M. Crunchwrap (Sausage)
The A.M. Crunchwrap, made with scrambled eggs, a hash brown, your choice of bacon, steak, or a sausage patty and cheese wrapped in a flour tortilla, is the better of the two items.
Although the hash brown provides a nice crunch, the best part of the wrap is the sauce, which gives the perfect amount of spice.
Much like the Waffle Taco, the A.M. Crunchwrap won’t change your opinion of Taco Bell too much.
With a whopping 46 grams of fat, the A.M. Crunchwrap with sausage also shouldn’t be your first choice for a quick grab-and-go breakfast food if you’re trying to be healthy.
Though, admittedly, if you find yourself standing in line waiting to order breakfast at Taco Bell, you probably aren’t too concerned about things like that.

Waffle Taco (Bacon)
The Waffle Taco is undoubtedly the least visually appealing breakfast item on the menu.
The taco is composed of your choice of a sausage patty or bacon bits, to go along with scrambled eggs and cheese wrapped in a plain waffle. A small packet of syrup is also provided.
I can’t imagine that the meeting between Taco Bell big wigs on this particular item lasted more than five minutes. It looks like something your drunken roommate would make after he realized there weren’t any tortillas left in the fridge.
However, looks can be deceiving, and in this case, the Waffle Taco doesn’t taste as terrible as it appears.
While the waffle itself was a little soggy, it was sufficient enough to hold everything together and the eggs didn’t taste like they were made a month ago.
Was it extraordinary? Absolutely not.
But it certainly isn’t as horrible as your brain may be telling you upon first glance.

The breakfast menu is available from 7 a.m. to 11 a.m.
