Waffle taco fans, say goodbye to that one-handed wonder you used to love — it seems Taco Bell is ready for a new face for its breakfast initiative.

Enter the “biscuit taco.”

Taco Bell’s new biscuit taco, which will hit national menus Thursday, is described as a “warm, fluffy, buttery biscuit, folded in the shape of a taco.”

But that’s not all. The biscuit can be filled with a number of options, from bacon, egg and cheese to fried chicken with gravy or jalapeno honey.

“This year is about making sure we continue to give people the food they crave in a way that’s unique to Taco Bell,” Brian Niccol, CEO of Taco Bell Corp, said in a statement. “Our Biscuit Taco delivers just that; it will reinvent the fast food breakfast experience by moving away from boring, round sandwiches and inserting bold tastes and flavors. Ultimately, we aim to make the breakfast day-part as famous as our late night.”

The biscuit taco ranges from 369 calories to 471 calories depending on how decadent you want your morning meal.

The new menu item is priced at $2.49 before tax and will be available at all Kansas City locations that offer breakfast.
