Oh Sweet Fancy Moses, Taco Bell is Testing a Waffle Taco

OK, so there are no more jokes to make about Taco Bell pushing the boundaries of hyperbole with their new fast food items. It's done. It's all done. Can we be done? Somewhere in between Idiocracy references, Inception, the zombie apocalypse and our heads exploding like the guy in Scanners, we're out of metaphors to capture the madness.

Doritos is Actually Making Taco Bell Doritos Locos Tacos Chips

The circus that is Taco Bell's marketing team continues: Brand Eating and Foodbeast and soon all the blogs and this one are reporting that Taco Bell is testing/rolling out/releasing upon the world a Waffle Taco. A Waffle Taco, in case you were wondering, is egg and sausage inside of a waffle that's shaped like a taco. To recap: layer of egg + layer of sausage + waffle folded into taco shape. It's 89 cents, too. They're currently testing it in Southern California. Foodbeast is reporting it comes with a packet of syrup.

So, we should expect Doritos to make a Waffle Taco-flavored chip soon, right?

Nick: how about Chicken & Waffle taco flavored chip flavored tacos for brunch?

Also, haven't heard from Taco Bueno in a long time, hope to see more from them soon.

You gotta hand it too them.......they are trying; and that's all you can ask for. Waffle sandwiches have been around for years, and totally yummy-methinks it'll be good for them if they can get the stoners out of bed.

this is just getting ABSURD! i swear taco bell's kitchen has to be the most stoned assembly of people in the world! not only do you have to be high to conceive such a concoction, you've got to be even higher to approve and market it! reminds me an snl skit. "pizza, now that's what i call a taco". http://www.hulu.com/watch/1447

They have (and methinks you know it).....we had one by the house, and it absolutely sucked. Try getting a 16 year old to memorize one menu, let alone two; then add sanitized versions of popular items, and voile'-you have NOT SUCCESSFUL.........but atleast they tried.

I get a kick out of the fact that they call themselves "Yum brands", because that just isn't the first word that comes to mind when I think about the milieu of foods marketed by this corporation.

The waffle-taco concept seems sound, but, you have to keep in mind that this comes from a company that can, and regularly does, screw up a simple taco.
