I can't tell you how many times I saw a fast food company testing out something I would love to try in a state that is hours away.

Now I can rest easy because it turns out I can give it a try right here in Illinois.

The catch is that I am unsure which Illinois cities, outside of Chicago, are testing the brand-new Loaded Breakfast Tots at Taco Bell.

Everything I have read online says that they are certainly at Taco Bell in Chicago but where is a mystery.

It probably won't matter because these things are bound to be on the menu nationwide at some point.

The Takeout:

The tots consist of seasoned tater tots, scrambled eggs, your choice of sausage or bacon, a three-cheese blend of mozzarella, pepper jack, and cheddar, and a drizzle of creamy jalapeño sauce. That formula might not be too complicated, but it’s significant nevertheless, because Taco Bell currently doesn’t have any breakfast bowl options. Given how much the chain has tinkered with its breakfastmenu lately, you can see the logic behind this newest item.

Food Beast tried the Loaded Breakfast Tots and they look delish.

So do we need to make plans to start driving around Chicago and the suburbs to find these things? How much time do we have before Loaded Breakfast Tots disappear?


If you're in Chicago and want to get your hands on Taco Bell's newest breakfast option, you should head to your nearest location A.S.A.P. since, as of now, it's unclear just how long the breakfast tots will stick around. Bring your wallet, too, of course, because depending on whether you choose bacon or sausage, they'll cost either $3.49 or $4.49.

Well, it looks like I know what I'm eating for Thanksgiving. Have you tried the Loaded Breakfast Tots from Taco Bell yet? Let us know.
