We’ve gone a couple of weeks since the last time I bashed a fast food restaurant, so it seems fitting now that spring has officially sprung, one of the big four monsters of fast food (Subway, KFC, McDonald’s, and Taco Bell) was going to pop up with a new gimmick to try and save their failing (hopefully) business.
On Thursday, April 6, Taco Bell announced that they will begin testing the “Naked Breakfast Taco,” an unholy concoction of a breakfast taco, in Flint, Michigan. As if Flint hasn’t already had enough dietary issues in the last couple of years.
And if you want to still be a fatass but don’t want to get your hands all slimy from Taco Bell eggs, Taco Bell will throw a flatbread on there for the ‘dressed’ version.
The Naked Breakfast Taco uses a fried egg as a carrier for potato bites, nacho cheese, shredded cheddar, and bacon or sausage crumble. Of course, it will cost just $1.99.
“We think it will pique people’s curiosity… People are going to be really passionate one way or another about it,” Missy Nelson, Taco Bell’s dietitian and product developer, said. “I think once you taste it, you’re going to want it again.”
That’s Taco Bell’s way of saying “most normal people will hate it, but a select group of behemoths will LOVE it, and that’s all that matters to us!”
