Taco Bell thinks outside the biscuit

Fourthmeal, meet Fifthmeal.

Taco Bell’s new breakfast menu rolled out nationwide on March 27 and features new additions such as the Waffle Taco and A.M. Crunchwrap.

“Fans already like to come to Taco Bell for lunch and dinner, and they share with us their love of late night,” Brian Niccol, Taco Bell President, said. “Now they’re not just asking, but telling us they want Taco Bell breakfast.”

The Waffle Taco is a combination of sausage or bacon, scrambled eggs, shredded cheese and optional syrup wrapped in a waffle. It has been the largest source of buzz surrounding the new breakfast menu lineup.

Another new contender in the breakfast menu is the A.M. Crunchwrap. Consisting of scrambled eggs, melted cheese, a creamy jalapeño sauce, a hash brown patty, and a choice of bacon, sausage or steak, the morning crunchwrap is Taco Bell’s response to breakfast items elsewhere such as the McMuffin.

Some Tech students are already speaking highly of Taco Bell’s new lineup, but not everyone agrees.

“I really like breakfast,” student Wes Byrne said. “Sometimes, you just want fast food.”

“[The A.M. Crunchwrap] was smaller than I thought it would be,” student Sidney Byrne said.

“My least favorite part of it is that they stop serving it at 11 a.m.,” Brandon Wilson, also a student, said. “But, I will absolutely be returning to Taco Bell for breakfast.”

Other breakfast menu items include the A.M. Grilled Taco, Sausage Flatbread Melt, Steak and Egg Burrito, Breakfast Burrito, Cinnabon Delights, hash browns, premium hot coffee and Tropicana orange juice.

Taco Bell’s breakfast menu is served from 7 a.m. to 11 a.m. and is offered at more than 5,500 locations nationwide.
