One month ago, the fast food Tex-Mex restaurant Taco Bell introduced a breakfast taco, consisting of a U-shaped waffle filled with eggs and sausage, to test markets including Chattanooga, and now, in a similar manner, it has unveiled a new product in the Scenic City.

The new menu item, called the Burger Taco, is currently available city-wide, and it features a new twist on a familiar favorite.

“First, we take a fluffy bun made of harina blanca, and add a carne picada patty,” said Taco Bell spokesperson Sally Mittelvander. “Top it with lettuce, cheese and salsa catsup, and you’ve got the Burger Taco.”

“Oh, who are we kidding?” said Mittelvander. “It is just a regular hamburger, but folded in half.”

“After the Breakfast Taco, we have given up on even trying to have any reasonable semblance of Mexican cuisine in our menu items,” said Mittelvander. “It hardly matters, though, since the public will pretty much buy anything we put out there, no matter how insulting, ridiculous or disgusting.”

Mittelvander mentioned plans for a “Dessert Burrito,” consisting of tapioca pudding and gummi bears enclosed in a fruit roll-up.
