McDonald's just got served by Taco Bell, kicking off what we like to call, the battle of the breakfast menus. Taco Bell announced today they were launching a $1 breakfast menu complete with special new items. As we know, MacDo has their take on the morning meal, rolling out their All Day Breakfast a while back. This leaves us wondering, who would you rather? If a Taco Bell and McDonald's were across the street from each other, and you had five seconds to decide which breakfast to choose, where would you go? We're here to help you with this tough decision, should you ever be faced with it. We took items from both menus and paired them against each other in our breakfast battle.
There are a few things to note about each menu before we start comparing their grub. McDonald's offers it's breakfast for the entire day, where it does not appear Taco Bell will be doing the same. However, as previously stated, T-Bell's morning meals will only sell for $1, where MacDo's sell for normal prices. It appears Taco Bell offers the same ten menu items at every location, where McDonald's offers McMuffins in the majority of the 50 states, and biscuits in the rest. Lastly, Taco Bell created brand-new items (like the Mini Skillet Bowl and Breakfast Soft Taco) just for this dollar menu, where MacDo stuck to the foods we all know and love. Still can't decide where to go? Same. Let's weigh the pros and cons of each chain's menu items and see if we can pick from there.
1. Taco Bell Cinnabon Delights v. McDonald's Hotcakes. Nothing beats a standard stack of fluffy hotcakes, but we applaud Taco Bell for joining hands with Cinnabon on this one. While MacDo wins for sticking to traditional breakfast items, Cinnabon Delights are just so dang creative! Winner: Undecided. Depending on if you want a familiar breakfast or something wild, both could satisfy.
2. Taco Bell Hash Browns v. McDonald's Hash Browns. Winner: McDonald's. Forever and always. Just trust us.
3. Taco Bell Mini Skillet Bowl v. McDonald's Fruit & Maple Oatmeal. If we wanted to eat 58 grams of carbs, we sure as heck wouldn't be doing it with a bowl of boring-ass oatmeal. Bring on the Mini Skillet Bowl, please. Winner: T-Bell. Duh.
4. Taco Bell Mountain Dew Kickstart: Orange Citrus v. McDonald's Fruit 'N Yogurt Parfait. We want to meet the person who starts their day with a cup of Mountain-freaking-Dew. Just because it's Orange Citrus flavored, doesn't make it a breakfast food, people. In all fairness, MacDo's parfait probably isn't any healthier. Winner: Mickey D's only because it's not Mountain Dew.
5. Taco Bell Sausage Flatbread Quesadilla v. McDonald's Sausage McMuffin with Egg. This looks to be essentially the same thing, just held together by different types of bread. MacDo's staple has 29 grams of carbs and 470 calories. Taco Bell's option has only 240 calories but only two fewer carbs than the McMuffin. Tough call. Winner: Taco Bell. Finding fast food under 300 calories is as likely as finding a pair of Yeezy's on sale at Goodwill. In other words, it'll never happen. Props to T-Bell for looking out for our love handles.
Final winner: Undecided! We'll leave this one up to you guys.
