Review: Country Sausage AM Crunchwrap from Taco Bell

Ever since I ordered that Waffle Taco with sausage, I’ve stuck with bacon when it comes to Taco Bell breakfast items.  Taco Bell’s sausage was incredibly bland, boring, and not worth a repeat buy.  I really like Taco Bell’s AM Crunchwrap, although my choice of going with bacon wasn’t even a highlight.  The newest entry to Taco Bell’s breakfast family is the Country Sausage AM Crunchwrap and I’m hoping the addition of “warm country gravy” is the x-factor to successful sausage.

A warm flour tortilla with a golden crispy potato hash brown, fluffy scrambled eggs, a delicious sausage patty, real cheddar cheese and warm country gravy, wrapped up and grilled to go.

Like the original AM Crunchwrap, having a handheld, safely contained combination of breakfast ingredients is a big plus for me.  The price isn’t too bad either at $2.59… it’s pretty solid value.   … continue reading “Review: Country Sausage AM Crunchwrap from Taco Bell”
