Five fast-food chains that should NOT serve breakfast
2. Taco Bell
Greasy little balls.
It's downright astounding how Taco Bell can manage to produce such delicious, addictive regular menu items like those damn Doritos Locos tacos and then throw down some of the absolute worst breakfast items that fast food has to offer. I was genuinely surprised to find that the Bell's breakfast burritos were dry, tasteless and boring, since the regular menu burritos are anything but, and the breakfast cinnamons are little more than fried dough balls with sugar and a side of icing -- too lacking in nutrition to be healthy, and not tasty enough to be popular.
And Mountain Dew a.m.? Really?! Like that greenish pee water wasn't flat enough already, without dumping orange juice in it.
I have a real fondness for the chain and its past and present lunch/dinner/fourthmeal menus, so I'm hoping that if we all ignore the breakfast menu and pretend it never happened, then maybe Taco Bell will try again and create some a.m. fare that actually rings bells.
1. Kentucky Fried Chicken
We, the fast-food consumer base, are supremely lucky that Kentucky Fried Chicken only serves lunch and dinnertime fried chicken -- because if the top brass of this chicken-fried-chicken chain ever decide to subject us all to their presumptive machinations of morning food creativity, I imagine that there would be pestilence, strife and suffering throughout the land -- remember the double down sandwich and all the crap they got for that?
KFC should stick to what it's good at: working the grease fryers and staying far, far away from morning repasts. If selling a fried chicken patty-bun sandwich with bacon and cheese is the best innovation it can come up with for lunch, adding eggs wouldn't exactly revolutionize the fast-food breakfast market.
