Look out McGriddles, there’s a new fast food breakfast in town. Taco Bell is currently testing out the Waffle Taco as a possible breakfast item in at least one Southern California location.
Initially reported by Brand Eating, Instagrammer Sarah1ch5 took a photo of the fabled Waffle Taco while passing through a Taco Bell in Santa Ana, proving the fluffy breakfast taco does in fact exist. Her response, “It was awesome!”
The Waffle Taco, currently listed at 89 cents, features a sausage and scrambled egg folded into a waffle with a packet of syrup on the side.
"We are testing the waffle taco in a handful of Southern California restaurants," Taco Bell reps confirmed to TODAY.com. "We’re pleased with the initial reaction from our customers and if the waffle taco does well in testing, we’ll roll it out to all our restaurants that serve breakfast.”
Taco Bell started selling breakfast last year, with a list of items labeled the “FirstMeal Menu,” in about 800 locations in 10 states. Eventually, the company says, the full breakfast menu will be offered in all 6,000 locations nationwide.
