I have to admit, I’ve driven by Taco Bell multiple times and wished I could pick up a breakfast burrito. There’s only so many Egg McMuffins you can have before you need a break, and Burger King breakfast will leave you with a grease hangover through lunch. Why hasn’t Taco Bell ever taken advantage of people like me who crave their food at 8am? Apparently, they plan to.
The idea of bringing breakfast to Taco Bell has been going on for a while, but this is the first time I’ve come across photographic evidence. They tried it out way back in 1992 at only one location, and the decision to test out a breakfast menu again began in 2006. The breakfast menu has just recently been expanded to restaurants outside of the test market in Orange County. 375 stores are now equipped to carry it, and a marketing campaign is expected to begin in January 2010. From what I hear, breakfast will be available in Taco Bells nation wide by 2012. The new a.m. menu will feature Jimmy Dean sausage, Seattle’s Best coffee, Dole produce and Cinnabon alongside its chalupas, gorditas and double-decker tacos.
The thought of a grilled stuft burrito for breakfast literally has me wanting to take a roadtrip to one of the test markets. Sausage and bacon grilled stuft burrito? I want you. I need you. Oh baby. Oh baby. On the other hand, the “French Toast Deluxe” looks absolutely disgusting. That’s exacty what I want 4 hours after eating breakfast. Syrup fingers.
