It's only been a little more than three months, but Taco Bell is already bolstering their breakfast menu with the new Grilled Breakfast Burrito as well as the new Grande Scrambler.

The new Grilled Breakfast Burrito is value-priced at $1.29 a piece and features scrambled eggs, warm nacho cheese, and a choice of either sausage, bacon, or seasoned Fiesta potatoes and pico de gallo, wrapped up in a flour tortilla and grilled.

The new Grande Scrambler is an all-of-the-above types of breakfast burrito and comes filled with Fiesta potatoes, pico de gallo, sour cream, cheddar cheese, and either bacon, sausage, or steak.

Additionally, Taco Bell has renamed the Steak and Egg Burrito as the "Cheesy Burrito," adding potatoes, sausage, and bacon options.


In other breakfast news, Taco Bell will soon be testing protein-oriented breakfast burritos and bowls plus Greek yogurt.

McDonald's breakfast burrito is alright with the concept of keeping it simple, but maybe this could usurp the existing king.

How were these not already on the menu? Their launch options didn't have a real "breakfast burrito", which I think is the first thing you expect when you think "Taco Bell Breakfast".

Had a bacon/egg crunchwrap the other day though - surprisingly good.

Good. Every Saturday I have a 16 hour slog at work so I always try to get some kind of breakfast that I know will fill me even if it's terrible for me, but Taco Bell's limited menu has made me head towards McDonalds more often than not lately.

Enjoy some Taco Bell for Breakfast. Enjoy your ass exploding at Lunch.

The Grande Scrambler sounds good though. Might be worth a possible unpleasant early afternoon.

If you are a communist sympathizer shouldn't you make your own worker-approved breakfast rather than suckling at the mega-corporate teat?

My local Taco Bells have been opening their full menu at 9. Seems like breakfast was not a good experiment.

Taco Bell breakfast. The Jimmy Pesto's of fast food breakfast.

Every single Taco Bell thread has to have people talking about their precious little tummies and how much Taco Bell hurts it. My ten year old 60lb daughter has a better digestive tract than 50% of GAF.

When I was 10 and 60lb I was able to down as much taco bell as I wanted.
Not any more :(

incredible

Science/math is hard.

Most people eat between 2-2.5k calories a day. Men will usually be on the high end. Most people also eat 3 meals a day, and at 2500 that makes this less than 1/3.

Also, science has pretty much debunked the supposed negative effects of fat in recent years.

1500 mg of sodium in a single burrito for some of those choices. That's your daily recommended intake of sodium right there.

Not all fats are equal. The fat in a "scrambler" aren't the same as the healthy fats you'll find in, for example, an avocado.

What specific fats are you taking issue with? ... and what science shows that it is bad for you?

The high-born stomach does not process the parasites, low morals, or inferior humors of the factory worker or migrant. A gentlemen should avoid immigrant "food" as much as possible lest he become like "them."

Considering what food topics are posted here along with the comments, I think most of GAF has a sodium intake problem.

i'd try that grande burrito for sure....though try is all i'd do.

...then go back to ordering Cheesy Gordita Crunchs

1500 mg of sodium in a single burrito for some of those choices. That's your daily recommended intake of sodium right there.

so i just need to eat/drink 1500mg of sugar to balance it out right??

Would be more interested if they added some chorizo as an option. I am confused why they haven't yet.

Taco Bueno nailed fast food chorizo and then took it off the menu. When they brought it back, it was new recipe and some Del Taco level shit.

You don't think it's a little unfair to compare it to a 1.29 burrito you can purchase and eat in your car in about 5 minutes?

Yeah, it's pretty unfair.

I think what he's saying is people probably shouldn't be spending $1.29 for burritos.

Meh, whatever floats their boats. My boss loves McDonald's breakfast burritos. Sometimes he'll buy them for the whole office. *shudders*
