If you find selling bacon difficult you might be in the wrong business.

This.  Selling bacon and sausage is about has hard as offloading drugs.

That said, if taco bell is selling something with sausage and it isn't chorizo, it seems stupid to me. I know they aren't real mexican food anyways, but at least pretend.

I would think they could cheaply crank out a version of the standard mexican breakfast every single restaurant in all of el paso serves.  That type of fare lends itself to a pretty quick serve time.

I prefer ordering from a mexican restaurant that has what I ordered ready in the 15 to 20 minutes they said they'd have it ready, when I called in a to-go order.  Depending on where I'm ordering from, I'm spending the same amount for better quality food than Taco Bell sells.

I don't need Taco Bell to sell bacon and sausage, I just need them to sell Meximelts at 7am. Why does society get to decide what time I can eat certain things? WHY? And I eat cereal at night sometimes, you can't stop me.

Is it a blue waffle?

Taco Bell's "Hangover breakfast food", sounds like it will be the perfect partner for Taco Bell's, "I'm sooooooo hammered that this is the greatest culinary masterpiece to be created since the invention of fire", Fourth Meal.

If that breakfast burrito was made out of real food, it probably wouldn't be half bad. Now I'm going to have to get up early tomorrow just to go to my preferred purveyor of breakfast burritos. A place where the guy knows all his favorite customers' names, because apparently we are all named "my berry good frand!"

"Inside Scoop on Food in Los Angeles"?

If you live in LA (or really anywhere in SoCal), why would you eat at Taco Bell in the first place?
 
2014-02-25 03:39:03 AM
For the love of God, don't eat this garbage.

As someone on graveyard shift, I know your pain. On the bright side, tacos for breakfast. And now, breakfast tacos.

At least they aren't trying to lie about what they are about and hide behind the "We also sell healthy stuff" by claiming they offer some healthy meals.

There's an Indian place that sells breakfast burritos? Actually, that sounds kind of tasty....

What if you try to sell bacon to Jews and Muslims? I would consider that a difficult sell to make and would more blame the short sighted manager who pushed him to sell to those demographics.

Then you'd find selling bacon to those religious groups different, and thus be in the wrong business.

Subby, I think you got it wrong. They had to figure how to get rid of a ton of waffles that some idiot VP ordered while he was high. Solution, wrap them around bacon and sausage.

I like Taco Bell.  Not many other places where you can get enough food for a full meal if you've only got $3 in your pocket.

Yeah, I'll probably end up trying Taco Bell breakfast.

Having grown up in the tri-state are(NY, NJ, PN) the majority of Jews totally ate pork. A good bit of them pretended they didn't, but they were liars. And the Muzzies don't have a big enough market share in the states. So all is well.

/that being said, make your own goddamned bacon/sausage/waffle taco.

It will sound interesting after a late night of consuming beverages.

One of my mates is married to this girl from bumfark Indiana. She absolutely luuuurves Taco Bell. She's also an environmentalist and a Republican.

I can sort of understand (somehow???) the last two bits co-existing, but the Taco Bell thing drives me up the wall.

I used to love Taco Bell when lived in Indiana. They had phonetic spelling on their menu board. Tak-hos and Burr-ee-toes. This was 25 years ago.

Other South Texas Mexican joints do breakfast tacos much better.

Potato, egg and bacon

Beef fajita, egg and cheese

Chiliquilas (tortilla, egg, peppers and cheese)

Etc, etc.

Damn, now I want breakfast tacos instead of the stupid oatmeal in front of me

Heh, yep.  A friend of mine in grad school was jewish, from NY.  Her favorite food was sausage, ham, and cheese pizza.  Yep, she ate bacon too.

All of this breakfast stuff looks like crap.

They just need to open earlier.  Don't bother with "breakfast" foods.  And bring back the Chillito.
 
2014-02-25 08:15:23 AM
We were a test market for all their breakfast items; they've been available for a few months.

I love Taco Bell. I love breakfast. But I don't love their breakfast menu.

I really wanted to like it, I gave it a few tries, but everything just tastes kind of meh.
 
2014-02-25 08:16:17 AM
I've had Taco Bell breakfast in LA and TN during the test market. It's pretty uh-mazing.

If you're nice they'll make a loaded potato griller with egg which is a tortilla, melted cheese, potato and egg.  Phenomenal.  Waffle tacos aren't bad.  Everything else was great.  Seriously.  Possibly the best fast food breakfast around.
 
2014-02-25 08:17:40 AM
Yuck, why is that person pouring syrup onto eggs and bacon?  I can't fathom why people would do such a thing.

That is pretty hard to do anymore, just ask this guy:   http://www.nydailynews.com/news/national/taco-bell-fan-rages-price-bu r rito-rises-shoots-cops-triggers-3-1-2-hour-standoff-article-1.122263

And definitely forget a fountain drink on a $3 budget, unless a bean burrito is a full meal for you.

And I was freaking out with no mention of syrup up front.

Please give me about twelve of those syrup dipping cups fine Sir.

DarkVader: All of this breakfast stuff looks like crap.


I think that's by design.  Taco Bell's not-so-secret slogan has always been: "Taco Bell: It looks the same going in as it does going out"

This. Why would you ruin it with a waffle when they already stock tortillas?

Because it's not bacon and it's not eggs. The only flavor there is the syrup, everything else is just texture

There is (or at least used to be) at least one food truck in Silicon Valley that sells popular Indian fare (e.g. chicken tikka masala) wrapped up in a tortilla.  I don't remember them having any specifically breakfast items, however.
