I guess Taco Bell feels EMPOWERED by their Doritos taco shells, because now they're getting even MORE experimental.

In Orange County, California . . . which is the home of the Taco Bell headquarters . . . there have been sightings of a new BREAKFAST TACO at various Taco Bell locations. And instead of a regular shell, it's wrapped in a WAFFLE shell.

The Waffle Taco has eggs and sausage wrapped in a waffle, covered in maple syrup. They're selling for 89 cents.

There's no word on if or when these could go nationwide . . . or, ya know, if or when they're going to take it even further and make a waffle taco covered in Doritos nacho cheese.
