Taco Bell Unleashes Breakfast Drink With 85 Grams Of Sugar
Can It Match The Popularity Of Doritos Tacos?
If cheese and sugar were weapons, Taco Bell would be a fast food arms dealer. The chain's latest volley in the war on nutritious breakfast includes a new soda drink with 17 teaspoons of sugar.
Introducing Taco Bell's new morning "breakfast drink," an unholy mixture of Mtn. Dew and concentrated orange juice that by some accounts will inject your blood stream with 85 grams of sugar.
Taco Bell, which sold an estimated 100 million Doritos Locos Tacos in just 10 weeks, says the new drink is part of the fast food chain's effort at "reinventing breakfast."
Of course, what would a sugar-filled morning be without a massive serving of fat to go with it? Taco Bell is also rolling out its new sandwich, the A.M Crunchwrap, which includes bacon, cheese, eggs and hasbrowns wrapped in a tortilla.
The Dew drink retails for $1.69 and the Crunchwrap is $2.49.
