As a wrap up to the Taco Bell breakfast menu, I thought I’d do a quick ranking/recap, along with links to each individual post. And now that we’re done with this project, look for me to attempt to get back on my regular posting schedule, which was to be once a week. (And also maybe stay away from Taco Bell in a bit. This is my 21st overall post, which excludes my introduction, and 11 have been on Taco Bell.) 

 

1: A.M. Crunchwrap: One of the unique Taco Bell options, and the best tasting. A meal unto itself.

2: Waffle Taco: If this ranking was based solely on taste/experience, the Waffle Taco would be towards the bottom. However, the concept is fantastic, and if they work out the issues (i.e. make it correctly), this has the potential to be #1.

 

The top two are clearly head and shoulders above the rest of the items. They’re unique to Taco Bell (at least amongst fast food establishments. I’m sure someone has made and serves a waffle taco) and different from everything else on the breakfast menu. These last items, are interchangeable, in addition to having glaring flaws in their original form. While the flaws can be fixed (sauce!), they are apparent, and there’s no special reason to go to Taco Bell for any of these items.

 

3: Breakfast Burrito with Bacon: This really isn’t much different than the Steak & Egg Burrito. IT supposedly has a double portion of eggs and contains a non-premium meat. Thus, the lower price point. Because I’m usually not hankering for steak in the morning, I ranked this higher, but they’re essentially interchangeable depending on your meat preference. 

4: Steak & Egg Burrito: See above.

5: A.M. Grilled Taco: Nothing special here, but I like the combo of eggs with sausage and cheese, plus the tortilla wasn’t too heavy for a morning snack.

6: Sausage Flatbread Melt: Mine was a little overdone, which didn’t help matters. I just don’t see myself eating this again. It’s heavy and boring and dry.

  

And here were the hash browns and Cinnabon Delights, which were reviewed but aren’t really comparable to the above sandwiches. I hope you enjoyed this series as much as I had eating/writing about it. Next up will be a McDonald’s burger that I ate four months ago but is still being touted as new!

I was going to lead this off with some lyrics from The Doors “The End,” but that seems a little hacky, right? I’m glad I held off.

Anyway, the time has finally come. I have reached that oasis on the horizon which has been taunting me for the past three plus months. This post will complete my running series on the Taco Bell breakfast menu, allowing us to finally move on into new territory. These are exciting days my friends, so join me as I recount my experience with Taco Bell’s Cinnabon Delights.

Unlike the last one, this post features photos!

Cinnabon Delights are available on their own, or as a compliment to a meal. With a meal, you can have two of these delightful balls instead of a hash brown. If you order them on their own, they come in packs of two, four and twelve.

Slightly kidney shaped, but look at that sugar.

Cinnabon Delights are “warm, golden bite-sized pastries filled with Cinnabon frosting and covered with Makara cinnamon sugar.” Think warm cinnamon Munchkin/donut holes with frosting in the middle. Does that make you happy? Because it should. There’s not much to analyze here. These were tasty as hell. The frosting was great, and didn’t ooze out. There was a good crunch to the Delights and the cinnamon sugar (excuse me, Makara cinnamon sugar), mixed really well with the frosting.

So good.

So good. 

As with the hash brown, these were eaten last, but even after sitting for twenty minutes, they were still fantastic. The only downside to these is that they’re a little heavy to be eating in the morning. Luckily, as an intrepid food blogger, I planned this meal so I had nothing else to do that day, so my laziness/food coma didn’t prevent me from engaging in any activities. While I generally prefer hash browns/fried potatoes as my side, if you’re only going to Taco Bell for the novelty aspect of their breakfast, do yourself a favor and get these instead of the hash brown (besides, you’ll already be having a hash brown in your crunchwrap).
