Johnsonville Sausage and Egg Wrap ($1.79)
Description

Nutritional Info: 360 calories, 220 calories from fat, 24 grams total fat, 780 milligrams of sodium

Fast-Foodie: "Nice crispiness to it. It’s almost got a panini type of feel to it. It seems like that’s the way with Taco Bell… everything’s very airy. The McDonald’s Sausage McMuffin comes to mind."

Breakfast-on-the-Run: "First thing, right off the bat, it’s half the size of their Crunch Wrap Supreme, which is like a Frisbee. Easy to carry. An easy in-your-car eat. Because it’s got a pocket, unlike a burrito which can squish out while you’re driving."

Health-Nut: "It’s very thin. You have a very thin layer of egg, not much cheese, and then you have a sausage patty. It’s not as hearty as other fast-food sandwiches."

Grande Skillet Burrito ($2.79)
Description

Nutritional Info: 720 calories, 350 calories from fat, 39 grams total fat, 1510 milligrams of sodium

Fast-Foodie: "Its very potato-heavy, which any breakfast burrito done right should always be. And they arent your usual hash browns. Theyre flavorful, like American-style breakfast potatoes."

Breakfast-on-the-Run: "Its 90 percent potato. You cant taste the meat at all. But I think if I had the choice, I would order just one of these, as opposed to three of the smaller burritos."

Health Nut: "The tomatoes and onions are a great surprise. It seems healthier than the Carls Jr. breakfast burrito. I wish they could turn it into a bowl."

Steak and Egg Burrito ($1.99)
Description

Nutritional Info: 400 calories, 170 calories from fat, 19 grams total fat, 930 milligrams of sodium

Fast-Foodie: "Nothing really stands out. I can taste the cheese more than anything. Theres no taste."

Breakfast-on-the-Run: "Pretty good consistency. Not too mushy. It fights back when you chew it."

Health Nut: "The cheese masks pretty much everything."

Bacon and Egg Burrito ($0.99)
Description

Nutritional Info: 280 calories, 140 calories from fat, 15 grams total fat, 680 milligrams of sodium

Fast-Foodie: "Its almost ham-y. The first thing I smelled was ham. And it definitely does not taste like bacon. Theres no crisp on it whatsoever."

Breakfast-on-the-Run: "Its dinky, but for $0.99, thats what youre expecting. If I wanted only this for breakfast, Id probably order two."

Health Nut: "I would never order that again."

Sausage and Egg Burrito ($0.99)
Description

Nutritional Info: 270 calories, 140 calories from fat, 15 grams total fat, 560 milligrams of sodium

Fast-Foodie: "Its egg-heavy, which is kind of a good thing, and the sausage flavors the whole thing just enough. Its pretty tasty."

Breakfast-on-the-Run: "The burrito isnt messy. Its so compact, so small. Two of them will fill you up. And it wasnt greasy!"

Health Nut: "Do they only have flour tortillas? No wheat or multi-grain?"

Hash Brown ($0.99)
Description

Nutritional Info: 190 calories, 110 calories from fat, 13 grams total fat, 290 milligrams of sodium

Fast-Foodie: "Its crispy, but very oily. Its just a space-filler. It wasnt good. Its a breakfast ruiner for me."

Breakfast-on-the-Run: "If I have a burrito and this, Im just going home and not going to work."

Health Nut: "This is just a big, crunchy grease-bomb!"

Cinnabon Delights ($1.49)
Description

Nutritional Info: 220 calories, 110 calories from fat, 12 grams total fat, 110 milligrams of sodium

Fast-Foodie: "My initial reaction is I think this will be a big hit. Cinnabon is a recognizable company. You know the smell when you walk into a mall. I think that was a good partnership."

Breakfast-on-the-Run: "I guess this is like the churro of breakfast. Its like a doughnut hole with cream filling. Kids will love them."

Health Nut: "My kids would go crazy over the Cinnabon Delights, but I'm not sure how thrilled I'd be for them to have this for breakfast."

Seattle’s Best Coffee ($0.99)
Description

Nutritional Info: 10 calories, 0 calories from fat, 0 grams total fat, 20 milligrams of sodium

Fast-Foodie: "Its good. Seattles Best is solid. But its not up to the level of McDonalds, whos done really well with their coffee."

Breakfast-on-the-Run: "Im not much of a coffee snob, but its not very thick." (Note: This person did take the coffee with them to-go).

Health Nut: "It just tastes like coffee-flavored water."

Tropicana Orange Juice ($1.49)
Description

Nutritional Info: 140 calories, 0 calories from fat, 0 grams total fat, 20 milligrams of sodium

Fast-Foodie: "Theres no pulp. I like my OJ thicker, but Tropicana is standard. Its like continental breakfast style."

Breakfast-on-the-Run: "Its good. If you throw in this orange juice with the burrito, youre travel-set. Very wise."

Health Nut: "This isnt a real fruit option. Theres 28 grams of sugar in this. Maybe a fruit cup instead."

Iced Coffee Mocha ($1.99)
Description

Nutritional Info: 200 calories, 30 calories from fat, 3.5 grams total fat, 80 milligrams of sodium

Fast-Foodie: "It tastes too much like ice cream to me. If theyre trying to compete with McDonalds, they need to offer just a coffee flavor or at least a more frapp-like drink."

Breakfast-on-the-Run: "I really cant imagine drinking this whole thing after or with a burrito."

Health Nut: "Its not bad, but there is just way too much sugar. It tastes almost like candy. Again, Im sure my kids would be addicted to it, but its not really for kids, is it?"

Iced Coffee Vanilla ($1.99)
Description

Nutritional Info: 200 calories, 30 calories from fat, 3.5 grams total fat, 90 milligrams of sodium

Fast Foodie: "Very syrupy. The vanilla doesn't overpower the coffee, which is good, but I don't think people go to Taco Bell for vanilla-flavored iced coffee. That's what Starbucks is for, and there's one across the street."

Breakfast-on-the-Run: "It just doesn't strike me as a morning ride-to-work kind of drink. It could go well with the Cinnabons, I suppose, if you're only getting dessert."

Health Nut: "It's heavy on the syrup. I feel a little sick already. I can't imagine ordering this and drinking the whole thing."
