Taco Bell Waffle TacoThis morning, the Taco Bell breakfast went nationwide.  They only have a limited number of items on their menu, but that was okay as I was there for the the waffle taco.  I’ve been wanting to try one since I first learned of them, so I was very excited when I found out they were taking breakfast nationwide.  The first day was today and I was there to finally try my waffle taco.

While I was excited to finally try the waffle taco, my expectations were low.  After all, this is Taco Bell.  I got the waffle taco with bacon combo which included a hash brown patty a drink.  The whole thing came to under $5 with tax, so it is a reasonable price for what you get.

I was actually surprised to be impressed by my taco.  The eggs and cheese were fine.  I was disappointed when the bacon was crumbled, but it ended up working quite well.  The big surprise was the waffle.  First, it held up well even with the contents inside and holding it like a taco.  I was really afraid it would fall apart.  Second, I totally expected the taco have a frozen waffle taste.  Not that I don’t love a good Eggo Waffle, but they don’t taste like a regular waffle.  That was not the case here.  It tasted like eating a traditional waffle.  Made me so happy.  The taco also come with a side of pancake syrup, which you definitely need to use to get the best experience.

As a good reviewer, I also got a sausage waffle taco (that’s my story and I’m sticking to it).  It was good, but I didn’t think it was as good as the bacon one.  I think the sausage really needs more spices.  The flavor was overpowered by everything else.  With the bacon waffle taco, the bacon flavor really came through.

I can definitely recommend heading to Taco Bell in the near future and trying their waffle taco.  I don’ think you’ll be disappointed.

If you’ve already had a chance to try the new Taco Bell breakfast, leave me a comment and let me know what you had and how you liked it.
