Taco Bell Breakfast Put To The Test

HUFFINGTONPOST.COM - This week, Taco Bell rolled out its long-awaited breakfast menu at 750 locations in 10 states across the country. The Tex-Mex titan of fast food, whose parent company is Yum! Brands Inc., spent the past five years developing the 11-item menu, known as "First Meal."

Breakfast menus have a long and storied history in the American fast-food industry. In 1971, McDonald's introduced the first Egg McMuffin. In 1977, they officially unveiled their entire breakfast menu. Today, most McDonald's locations start serving breakfast around 6:00 a.m., and a host of other fast-food chains (Jack in the Box, Carl's Jr., Burger King, Wendy's, and even Starbucks and Subway) have been slow but sure to follow suit in delivering the "most important meal of the day." The one major fast-food chain to hold off on this trend, until now, has been Taco Bell, a seemingly natural addition to the breakfast bandwagon (Photo Credit: Andy Sweat).

But all you late-night "Fourth Meal"-ers won't have to wait any longer -- your "First Meal" has arrived (does that technically make it five meals a day?). The options include a Johnsonville Sausage and Egg Wrap, two larger burritos (the Grande Skillet costs $2.79 and the Steak and Egg costs $1.99), two smaller $0.99 burritos (Bacon and Egg, Sausage and Egg), a hash brown, a quartet of Cinnabon Delights (fried dough balls with cream filling), fresh-brewed Seattle's Best Coffee (hot, iced, and flavored); and Tropicana Orange Juice. click here to read more

    Spokane sex trafficking victim gets second chance as shop owner

    SPOKANE, Wash. - From the outside, the Repeat Boutique looks like a lot of other thrift shops in Spokane.  Inside, some might describe the stuff for sale as old, used, discarded garbage -- but store manager CJ Curtis sees its potential. And just like the goods in her shop, CJ is on her way to a new life, one far from the one she once lived.

    Police impersonator attempts to pull over Spokane woman

    SPOKANE, Wash. - "He told me to pull over, and my jaw just dropped," a Spokane woman, who says a fake police officer tried to pull her over, doesn't want to be named. In fear, this could happen again. "It really scared me and kind of threw me off that night. I don't even want to drive by myself anymore," she said. She tells me that she was driving around North Spokane at night on her way home from work.
