It’s no good to to put my money where my mouth is unless I’m willing to go the distance. We’ve covered the new Taco Bell breakfast offerings and shared their clever advertising approach. I also gave my opinion of three menu items in Day 1 of my Wake Up Live Mas adventure. Now it’s time to continue through the menu, and this time I’m including two of the most notable items on the menu, as well as a different variety of the A.M. Grilled Taco from Day 1. Here’s my take:


Waffle Taco with Sausage

Why? It’s the featured item. This was the first item I heard about when I found out that Taco Bell was even offering breakfast.

How is it? The waffle wasn’t great, but it’s about what I expected. Not a lot of taste to it, but the sausage on here helps with that. The egg doesn’t add much to it, other than bulk, though the cheese is decent. The syrup they provide with the waffle taco is very tasty, and adding that to the Waffle Taco makes a big difference. Suddenly it tastes more like you’d expect a waffle and sausage together to taste. I like the combination here, but the way Taco Bell should go with this menu item is to make an extra thick taco shell made out of the same material that waffle cones are made from and put sausage and egg in there. That would be a much better option, though this one isn’t bad. It’s certainly worth trying.

A.M. Grilled Taco with Bacon

Why? Because during my Day 1 trip, I ordered this item with Sausage to mix things up a bit, and now I want it the way that I would order it.

How is it? The bacon is decent, but not good enough that I’d be excited about ordering it again. Instead of trying it in the Salsa Del Sol Picante Sauce, I decided to try the taco with Taco Bell’s typical Mild sauce and also with their Verde sauce packet. Unexpectedly, the Mild sauce actually works well with this. Something about the slight smokiness going along with the bacon that enhances the flavors. Normally the Verde sauce is my favorite option from Taco Bell, but it’s not a great choice with this taco. I had some syrup left over from the Waffle Taco, and I really enjoyed this grilled taco dipped in the syrup. The combination of bacon and syrup is under-appreciated.

Cinnabon Delights

Why? When it comes to breakfast food brands, Cinnabon is a major player, so when Taco Bell works it into its breakfast menu, it’s a “must try”.

How is it? These are good, and I’m not a huge fan of Cinnabon. They’re not quite what I was expecting, but quite honestly they’re better than I was expecting. Advertisements make it look as though there’s frosting or cream inside them, but that wasn’t the case with the ones I tried. What I found was something a lot more like a donut hole. A really GOOD donut hole. It was crispy on the outside with a cinnamon sugar coating that was slightly messy, but very tasty. It’s far less messy than anything I’ve ordered from Cinnabon before, and also less messy than any of the donut holes I’ve had with powdered sugar on them. Dipping them in the leftover syrup was almost too much enjoyment for me to handle. Almost.

Next Time

Whether it’s tomorrow or sometime next week, I’ll be trying more of the breakfast menu items until I reach the end. I’m interested to see how the options with steak taste, but other than that, I have no agenda other than getting through the rest of the options.
