NEW FUNKY FOOD FROM TACO BELL & DORITOS

NEW FUNKY FOOD FROM TACO BELL & DORITOS

Taco Bell is tired of Micky-D’s raking in all that breakfast dough.  So they’ve decided to add breakfast food to their menu!!!  While I’m sure there are several that are excited about a new fast food breakfast option, the stuff they’ll be selling, is not necessarily nutritious.  I’ll let the menu speak for itself…

  • Waffle Taco: A warm waffle wrapped around sausage or bacon, scrambled eggs, cheese and syrup.
  • A.M Crunchwrap: Scrambled eggs, hash browns, cheese and bacon or sausage in a warm tortilla.
  • Cinnabon Delights: Poppable pastries filled with Cinnabon frosting and coated with sugar.

Mmmm, sound good?  The healthiest item in the Taco Bell breakfast line-up is the Steak and Egg burrito, which I imagine I’ll try at some point, but I won’t be “heading for the border” to get it.  According to USA Today: “The Mexican fast-food chain, best-known for its low-budget tacos and burritos, on Monday announced plans to roll out an unconventional breakfast menu nationally beginning March 27.  The chain is champing at the bit for its share of the $50 billion limited-service breakfast business.  Taco Bell’s share of that breakfast market could be $700 million, estimates restaurant consulting firm Technomic.”

I’ve loved Doritos since Jr. High, but I’ve cut back my intake considerably since reaching the age of 20.  Now Frito-Lay (since Jr. High turned into a property of Monsanto http://museumofuncutfunk.com/2013/06/05/funk-monsanto-some-folks-still-dont-know/) is offering the super Dorito.  Doritos filled with MORE cheese!!!  Yummy?  “I don’t think so, Homie don’t play that.”  It’s simply more crap for your money.  While I still eat junk food on occasion, those occasions are far and more few in between because, I wanna live… longer as I’m steadily aging.

The product is being tested in Washington D.C. right now, to see if it makes sense to go national.  A 7-11 patron told “Yahoo News” the snacks “tasted like Nacho Cheese Doritos dipped in queso.”  “Doritos Loaded snacks are currently being test-marketed. Our future roll-out plans will be determined based on consumer response,” said Margaret Chabris, spokeswoman for 7-Eleven, in an email to USA TODAY Network.  The response on Twitter to the news of Doritos Loaded has been mixed, from joy to disgust.

I’d be remiss if I didn’t pose the question do you know what Chicken McNuggets are made of and inject these previous posts:
