Detailed Nutrition Facts for each item are included in each of my reviews. In this review, I focused on the A.M Crunchwrap ®.

I picked up all the breakfast items from the Taco Bell at 8033 North Durango, Las Vegas, NV 89131. There was no way I would be able to provide a detailed review of all these items in just one visit. Therefore, I picked up a few items with each visit over several days. For some of the visits I used the drive thru while other times I dined in. In either case, I was the only person in the store or in drive thru. For each visit, the person taking my order was friendly and the food was hot and fresh.

The Taco A.M. Crunchwrap ® Review

A.M. CrunchwrapThere are three different ways to order the Taco Bell A.M. Crunchwrap ®. The options are bacon, sausage, or steak. Everything you could want in a breakfast item is in there. Starting with fluffy scrambled eggs, real cheddar cheese, creamy jalapeno sauce and a crispy golden hash brown and your choice of bacon, sausage or steak wrapped in a warm flour tortilla. The tortilla is then folded and grilled flat to keep everything together. This makes the A.M. Crunchwrap ® perfect for eating in the car while driving.

The A.M. Crunchwrap ® is by far my favorite Taco Bell breakfast item. It is very filling and easy to eat while on the go. The combination of the crispy hash brown and grilled flour tortilla with the egg, cheese and creamy jalapeno sauce creates a perfect balance. Any of the three (Bacon, Sausage or Steak) work well depending on your taste. The jalapeno sauce adds a little spice but does not overpower the rest of the Crunchwrap ®. However, if you do not like spicy then order it without the jalapeno sauce and I think you will still enjoy it. You will also save 70 calories, all from fat. The A.M. Crunchwrap ® with bacon or sausage only costs $2.49. The A.M. Crunchwrap® with steak is a little more at $2.99.

However, I would not consider any of the Crunchwraps® as healthy. To save a few calories ask for the Crunchwrap ® without the Jalapeno Sauce.
