Taco Bell Breakfast Soft Taco Review:
Price Paid: $1.00 | Company: Taco Bell
There are few breakfast options when it comes to cheap fast food, however Taco Bell has a few food choices on their cravings menu (their breakfast soft taco is one of them). How did it fair in taste and quality?
I am quite impressed with the look of this breakfast taco. It has all my favorite things about breakfast (mostly bacon) wrapped into a convent flour tortilla. Lots of scrambled eggs with a ton of bacon pieces. Cheddar cheese ties everything together nicely. The ingredients are:
- Flour tortilla
- Scrambled eggs
- Bacon pieces
- Shredded cheddar cheese
The bacon in this breakfast taco is kind of bacon bit tasting (like the bacon bits you buy in the salad aisle). I think it is attributed to the fake smoke flavor (which it has a lot of). Eggs taste a bit fake to me… maybe boxed eggs? Nothing seems fresh, all ingredients shipped and assembled there. It doesn’t taste bad, though. If you’re in a rush, I think this will do in a pinch and can be eaten fairly easily.
I think the way this breakfast taco is designed is for speed and efficiency. Let’s be honest, it’s morning, you might be late for work and rushing to get some grub. This is quick and easy to turn over, hopefully keeping the lines short.
Breakfast is notoriously expensive. I think this taco is priced just right and the quality isn’t terrible. I give it a solid good on our value scale.

240 calories (22 calories per gram of protein). This taco was given a poor health rating. Why? Look at all that bacon – lots of saturated fat. If you’re trying to watch your saturated fat intake, consider asking for light bacon and cheese (not sure if this will work but worth a shot). This way you still get the convenience of fast food without the excess fat.
Based on a 2,000 calorie diet:
