News: Taco Bell to Roll Out Breakfast Nationally on March 27

Taco Bell today announced plans to roll out their breakfast menu (and the infamous Waffle Taco) nationally next month on March 27th.

Offering your typical breakfast staples with a Taco Bell-twist, the menu features 13 items including the Waffle Taco, the A.M. Crunchwrap (a particular favorite of mine), Cinnabon Delights (which are already available all day nationwide), Bacon Breakfast Burrito, Sausage, Steak and Eggs Breakfast Burrito, Bacon A.M. Grilled Taco, Sausage A.M. Grilled Taco, Sausage Flatbread Melt, Hash Browns (I tried these during testing), Premium Hot Coffee, and Tropicana Orange Juice.

Breakfast hours will run from 7 am (or earlier) until 11 am.

Having had the menu for over a year here in Southern California, I've noticed a couple new tweaks for the national menu including the bacon option for the Waffle Taco (which haven't yet tried), the renaming of A.M. Grillers (which I have tried with bacon as well as sausage) to A.M. Grilled Tacos, and a Sausage Flatbread Melt, which looks to be a breakfast version of the limited-time and recurring Flatbread Sandwiches.

Pricing hasn't yet been announced but I expect the prices to be similar to current prices here in California, which range from 99 cents for the Hash Browns and A.M. Grilled Tacos to $2.49 for an A.M Crunchwrap. Notably absent from the announcement was Mountain Dew A.M. (but let's face it, it's not that hard to mix together with both OJ and Mountain Dew on the menu).

You can also see my previous Q&A regarding the A.M. Crunchwrap here.

Taco Bell being Taco Bell, you can also expect the occasional new limited-time breakfast menu item in the future (although they wouldn't say when).
