Have you ever had a craving for Taco Bell at 9 a.m., only to realize that…well, it’s 9 a.m.? Well now Taco Bell for breakfast is an actual option. The Tex-Max chain has been testing their waffle taco for a few months now, but according to Huffington Post, they’re bringing it to more locations before they officially roll out their breakfast menu nationally.
The waffle taco has scrambled eggs, sausage, and a side of syrup, and clocks in at 460 calories and 30 grams of fat. So far, it’s been a huge seller at the locations in California that it’s been tested at, and since debuting in March, has undergone a few tweaks in shape to hold the filling more efficiently, as well as frying time and temperature. The waffle taco as well as a full breakfast menu will begin testing at about 100 of the locations in Fresno, Calif., Omaha, Neb., and Chattanooga, Tenn. starting Thursday.
Taco Bell offers breakfast at locations in some states in the western part of the U.S., but the waffle taco is a newer addition that joins items like oatmeal and yogurt parfaits on the menu. The goal, according to Taco Bell execs, is to try to get profit in a different time of the day instead of having to wait for the lunch and dinner crowds. Stay tuned in to your local Taco Bells to see if this item, as well as the whole breakfast menu, makes a national rollout.
