    That looks disgusting.

    How about just a fucking breakfast burrito?
    I'm still pissed Dunkin stopped selling those.

    Taco Bell, do yourself a favor and learn from Starbucks' mistake. Stick with what you do best and forget about creating a breakfast menu. Mcdonalds has that on lock down and nobody is breaking into that market.

    I kinda did that, except I just had one waffle with peanut butter and one with jelly and I ate them separately.

    They actually filmed the Taco Bell scene in the cafeteria at my work because it's a futuristic-looking building. They kitted up the adjacent wing of the cafeteria as a Sharper Image storefront with a bunch of bizarre-looking futeristic Sharper Image-type nonsense products. Not seen in the movie though. The outdoor quad area you see through the windows was where Dennis Leary and his rebels burst out of the "sewers".

    New Taco Bell ad: Even Ronald McDonald likes our breakfast

    Taco Bell
    Taco Bell's breakfast menu rolls out nationwide Thursday.


    Reporter- Business First
    Email | Twitter
    Taco Bell takes direct aim at McDonald’s Corp. in a new advertisement.

    California-based Taco Bell first fired a shot at the burger chain in October when David Novak, CEO of Taco Bell’s parent company Yum! Brands (NYSE: YUM), announced that Taco Bell would roll out a breakfast menu nationwide in 2014, Business First reported.

    The menu, which includes a waffle taco and A.M. Crunchwrap, debuted in Taco Bell locations across the United States today.

    McDonald’s (NYSE: MCD) has long dominated fast-food breakfast with its Egg McMuffins and hash browns.

    To drive home the point that its foray into breakfast is a direct effort to compete with the burger chain, Taco Bell has rolled out a new television ad featuring men named Ronald McDonald talking about how much they like Taco Bell’s various breakfast offerings.

    Of course, Ronald McDonald is also the name of McDonald’s clown mascot, who has been around since the 1960s.

    Near the end of the ad, words at the bottom of the screen indicate that none of the Ronald McDonalds are affiliated with McDonald’s.

    But the message is clear.

    I noticed the commercial on Hulu.com, which broadcasts television shows online. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to track it down on Taco Bell’s YouTube page or website Wednesday evening.

    I wonder if and when McDonald’s will shoot back?

    Fast-food chains such as Burger King Worldwide (NYSE: BKW) and The Wendy’s Co. (NASDAQ: WEN) have tried to take on McDonald’s but failed.

    But Taco Bell seems to be on a roll with product innovation.

    Just look at Doritos Locos Tacos.

    You can't fold a waffle and call it a taco shell. That's a folded waffle. I used one slice of bread and cold cuts and folded one end on top of the other- is that a taco sandwich?

    But there is a good point about breaking into breakfast burritos.

    It's not a folded Waffle. Go ahead and try to fold an ordinary Eggo waffle and see what happens. The son of a bitch will snap right in half. Even if you get a soft, mushy waffle and fold it in half it's going to spring right back to it's original flat form. This is a waffle that is created in a curved shape that looks nothing at all like a taco shell. But it's curved. "Curved Waffle With Eggs and Sausage" is harder to order at the Drive Thru than "Waffle Taco."

    Kinda on the fence about this new offering. I keep vacillating and flip-flopping on whether to try it out or not...

    If I'm going to Taco Bell at 8 AM, it's because I want something off the regular menu.

    When I go to Taco Bell at 8am, it's because I want a valid excuse to call in sick to work. I.E., shitting my brains out for the rest of the day.
