Review: Waffle Taco from Taco Bell

Taco Bell has taken the huge leap into the realm of breakfast and it’s available starting today.  There’s a nice selection of products that I’ll be getting acquainted with over the coming months and what better way to start than with the new Waffle Taco.

Waffle Taco Box The Waffle Taco from Taco Bell is described like this:

A warm waffle wrapped around flavorful bacon or a hearty sausage patty and fluffy scrambled eggs, served with a side of sweet syrup.

Since the sausage version of the Waffle Taco seems to be the headliner of all the ads I’m seeing, I decided to go with that.  I like breakfast sausage and eggs and I like waffles, but the Waffle Taco only really succeeds at being gimmicky. 

Waffle Taco from Taco BellMy Waffle Taco was a little messy even before I poured on the syrup.  The eggs spilled out easily and I quickly realized this limp, folded over waffle wasn’t going to be too structurely sound to hold everything in.  The problem with ingredients falling out is commonplace for tacos, so not a major gripe since it wasn’t unexpected.  What I will gripe about is the waffle being a tough ingredient to work with when being folded… and I’m not too crazy about floppy waffles. … continue reading “Review: Waffle Taco from Taco Bell”

Review: Big Fish Sandwich and the New Big Fish Deluxe Sandwich from Burger King

Although I reviewed the BK Big Fish over five years ago, it’s gone through some changes recently and a deluxe version added to the mix made the decision to revisit a lot easier.  I took advantage of Burger King’s 2 for $5 deal and killed two fish with one stone.  Here’s my take on the Big Fish Sandwich (version 2.0?) and the new Big Fish Deluxe Sandwich.

Burger King Fish SandwichThis is a good time to add Burger King to your fast food choices since it’s a pretty solid value.  If you don’t take advantage of the 2 for $5 promo offered up on the fish sandwiches and the Big King, Spicy Original Chicken Sandwich, and Original Chicken Sandwich, the prices might be jarring.  At my local BK in Maryland, the Big Fish Sandwich was priced at $3.99 and the new Big Fish Deluxe Sandwich was $4.09.  Now is the time to sample the goods if you’re on the fence about the sandwiches.  The promo price is a pretty good value and paying regular entree price will be a tough pill to swallow.
