POLL: Would you eat a taco waffle?

Taco Bell says it's expanding its small test of waffle tacos, as it prepares to take its breakfast menu national sometime next year.

The fast-food chain says the waffle taco, which includes scrambled eggs, sausage and a side of syrup, was the top seller at the five restaurants where they were tested earlier this year.

Now the company wants to see how it would fare on a bigger scale. The waffle tacos and a full breakfast menu will be expanded to about 100 restaurants in Fresno, Calif.; Omaha, Neb.; and Chattanooga, starting Thursday.

Taco Bell already offers breakfast at about 850 locations in 10 Western states, and has been tinkering with new items such as the waffle taco before rolling it out to its 6,000 U.S. locations.
