Food Review: Taco Bell Breakfast Crunchwrap

By Mike Thayer

Taco Bell Breakfast Crunchwrap

Out and about running some errands on a recent day off, I was in need of some breakfast and noticed a Taco Bell conveniently nearby.  I'd seen the Breakfast Crunchwrap commercials so here was an opportunity to give one a try.

Here's the marketing description from the Taco Bell website:  Ever since breakfast has existed, it’s existed in the form of a circle sandwich. We know this, you know this, and everyone knows this. It’s a little played out if we’re being honest. And breakfast has basically existed since someone decided to eat food in the morning, which makes the standard circle breakfast sandwich undeniably outdated. We mean, really outdated. Just think how far back that dates? People have been eating food in the mornings forever. Therefore, breakfast has been around forever. Since the standard circle breakfast has been around for a while, we here at Taco Bell thought we would mix it up and bring some excitement back to breakfast. This is why we now have the Breakfast Crunchwrap®. Eggs, your choice of bacon or sausage, real cheddar cheese, creamy jalapeño sauce and a full hash brown in a very hexagonal, handheld breakfast. It’s the motorcycle to the penny-farthing. The Internet to the carrier pigeon. The lantern to the lamp. The mobile phone to the payphone. A payphone, you ask? See, you don’t even remember those things because it’s been so long ago. Our point was just proven. The circle breakfast sandwich is as outdated as a payphone. It’s all about the Crunchwrap. And one step further, it’s all about the Breakfast Crunchwrap®.

Humorous, but does the Breakfast Crunchwrap live up to the Taco Bell hype?

Sausage Crunchwrap
A generous breakfast portion and clean eats!

Yes, and then some!

I went with the Sausage Crunchwrap.  As you can see from the pics, the tortilla was toasted well and it was loaded with breakfast goodness with a slight exception to the portion of sausage.  All ingredients were seasoned well and on point and the full hash brown was indeed crunchy, complemented by the toasting of the 'hexagonal' wrap.  This is no small offering either, it's a generous helping of eggs, cheese, sauce, hashbrowns (the sausage not so much) and here's a plus I didn't see coming, it's a pretty clean eat as well!  You know how sometimes you end up wearing a little bit of what you're eating when driving?  That didn't happen with the Crunchwrap, that toasted hexagonal shaped tortilla holds everything neatly in place.

Costing me just over $3, I'm giving the Taco Bell Sausage Crunchwrap 4 out of 5 Bachelor on the Cheap stars.  It's a convenient breakfast eat, a clean eat while driving and most importantly, a very tasty Breakfast eat!

4 stars

It's a 5 out of 5. You didn't say anything about the sauce - that's what's makes it a 5 out of 5. Where I'm from, the taco bell breakfast box comes with a breakfast crunchwrap, hash brown, cinnamon delights and a drink - all for $5. Best breakfast in all of fast food!


If you're in a hurry to get to work and want a quick breakfast, Taco Bell offers you the perfect opportunity.
