Would you eat Taco Bell’s Naked Egg Taco?

A new Taco Bell breakfast taco creation promises fried eggs, crispy potatoes, cheese and the choice of bacon or sausage. 

Where’s the shell, you ask? It’s right there in the egg.

According to a news release, Taco Bell’s Naked Egg Taco features a taco shell made entirely of a fried egg, with the standard breakfast taco fare stuffed inside. 


The news release calls this new concoction the latest in Taco Bell’s “shell innovation.” You’ll recall that the fast food joint previously foisted the Naked Chicken Chalupa upon the world, which was a taco with fried chicken as the shell.

The rest of the world will have to wait until Aug. 31 to try the taco, which will cost $1.99 a la carte for a limited time or in a breakfast combo that comes with coffee or a medium drink and two Cinnabon Delights or a hash brown for $3.99, according to the news release. The taco also comes in a Gordita Flatbread.

Some people on Twitter were enthusiastic about the taco, while others remained skeptical, wondering how this differs form a standard omelette.

Mashable reports that the Naked Egg Taco is “a meal to be experienced,” however.
