There is nothing that you, the consumer, love more than a paper bag filled with piping hot breakfast items purchased from one of our nation's fast food outlets. It is the only high point in the otherwise dreary days of the majority of Americans. Fortunately, fast food breakfast will now be more inescapable than ever.
If you were a reporter on the fast food breakfast beat, you would be enthusiastically declaring that today is "The Super Bowl of news" on the fast food breakfast beat, thanks to twin fast food breakfast developments that could forever slightly change the ubiquity of fast food breakfast in the United States of America. First, Taco Bell, a fast food chain heretofore known primarily for serving shredded cheese, refried beans, wilted lettuce, and horse meat in various combinations of tortilla containers, will now be serving breakfasts, as well. From Ad Age:
One of the higher-profile items on the menu is the Waffle Taco, which Mr. Niccol said "has gotten more buzz than a lot of other breakfast products." The chain made waves on social media in the first half of 2013 when it began testing the waffle taco — which includes eggs, sausage or bacon and a side of syrup — in a few southern California locations...
Other products on Taco Bell's breakfast menu include the A.M. Crunchwrap; co-branded Cinnabon Delights; a Breakfast Burrito; the A.M. Grilled Taco; Flatbread Melt and hash browns.
It is truly a testament to the progress that Hispanic Americans have made in our society, when a major corporation chooses to undertake the time and effort to introduce their traditional Waffle Taco cuisine to the nation at large. Our sombreros are off to the cultural ambassadors at Taco Bell—and we can only hope that Mainstream Americans will "open their minds" enough to venture to try foreign foods such as the A.M. Crunchwrap.
Remember, diners: America is a melting pot. And that melting pot is capable of frying nearly any form of carb.
Elsewhere in fast food breakfast news, McDonald's is once again discussing the possibility of extending its breakfast hours. It has long been a known fact that many Americans prefer the Egg McMuffin, which contains an egg, which came from a chicken, to the Chicken Nugget, which contains partially hydrogenated rat oil, that came from Mars.
One need only gaze a few years into the future to imagine a time when you could wake up in the morning, eat a waffle with eggs and syrup on it, and then, later in the afternoon, eat a Lard Egg 'N Cheese Biscuit, all without leaving your car or sphere of depression. Who do America's innovators and entrepreneurs ultimately serve? You, the consumer.
