Taco Bell barrels forward in its quest to dominate the land of bizarre stoner foods with the debut of its long-awaited breakfast menu. The chain announced its opening lineup up of just-barely-Mexican breakfast offerings today, adding to the already released Cinnabon
Sugar Bombs Delights. The menu makes its Nachos Bell Grande debut on March 27th—mark your calendars!
So what fresh hell do our intestines have to look forward to? Amidst the tame Breakfast Burritos and A.M. Grilled Tacos we find the morning version of the chain's first foray into madness/brilliance: the Crunchwrap. Instead of beef bits and wilted lettuce we find scrambled eggs, cheese, a sausage patty (or bacon or steak) and a hash brown standing in for the hard tortilla. To counter McDonald's popular McGriddle abominations, T.B. enlists the waffle as a coconspirator in their Waffle Taco, stuffed with scrambled eggs, cheese and either sausage or bacon "served with a side of sweet syrup." WHERE ARE THE MIGAS, TACO BELL????
The brand says its "growing relevance with Millennials" sparked the decision to offer morning additions to the menu, which they'll serve until an age-friendly 11 a.m. For its part, QSR breakfast dominator McDonald's may extend breakfast hours to appeal to "late" risers looking for an Egg McMuffin. "We know, as an example, that breakfast on the weekend cut off at 10:30 doesn't go very well," head of McDonald's USA Jeff Stratton told the AP. If these breakfast offerings have even half the insanity surrounding the most hyped taco of all time then look forward to a future paved in sweet syrup laden dough bombs.
If you dare to see how the sausage gets made, step right this way...
