It began in one Southern California Taco Bell restaurant, then spread to five, and now the popular fast food chain plans to unleash the fury of what is destined to change the way you eat breakfast: the waffle taco.
This is no ordinary breakfast taco. Forget that candy-a** soft taco tortilla rolled with eggs, sausage and potato, passed off as a breakfast burrito. You can get that crap anywhere.
This taco is the next level, people! The shell … is a waffle! And it’s stuffed with sausage and eggs. It’s also served with a side of syrup for your dipping, pouring or drizzling pleasure.
What is Taco Bell doing? It’s actively trying to take over the world, that’s what. As if the Doritos Locos Tacos weren’t addictive enough, now the fast-food chain is making it even easier to gorge on sausage, eggs and waffles? I mean seriously, there’s gotta be some kind of mind-control substance* in these things.
Common sense dictates you could do the same thing with an Eggo waffle at your own residence. No doubt you can already find Pinterest pages dedicated to recreating the waffle taco “for a fraction of the cost.” But where’s the fun in that? When you make your own sausage, there’s no joy in philosophizing, “I wonder what’s in this stuff?” That’s something reserved for the experience of stepping to a Taco Bell counter and ordering a waffle taco.
The waffle taco will be offered in over 100 stores beginning Thursday, August 8, and the restaurant chain plans to expand the offering nationwide in 2014 if the tests remain successful. For now, if you’re in Fresno, Calif.; Omaha, Neb.; or Chattanooga, Tenn., you’ll be able to get your hands on one deliciously sweet and salty taco.
*There is no known psychological mind-control substance in these things. Eat up.
