Roscoe's Waffles Come To The Frozen Aisle Of A Grocery Store Near You
For lovers of carbtastic, crinkled breakfast foods, this is a good week. There will be a few brand-new ways to stuff your face with your favorite morning treat. First, Taco Bell will be offering tacos encased in waffles instead of tortillas, and Roscoe's will soon be selling their signature waffle in the freezer section of grocery stores.
Admittedly, Roscoe's is our go-to when it comes to hangover cures. If a fat plate of fried chicken and waffles doused in syrup doesn't make you feel better, there's nothing that will. There are currently six 'Scoe's locations throughout the city, so you can get your fried chicken fix no matter whose house you woke up at. But now you can even have the waffles in the comfort of your own home.
That said, there's no fried chicken on offer in the frozen food aisle—yet. The hometown heroes are working on other foods for sale though.
While the chicken chainlet already sells packaged frozen foods under the Roscoe's At Home brand, it's never before launched a chicken and waffle product outside of its restaurants. But via a partnership with East L.A.'s Dolores Canning Co. Inc., next month Roscoe's will release frozen waffles online and to markets like Food 4 Less and Superior Grocers. Meanwhile, a fried chicken "product" is in the works.
While you anxiously await for the full service, in-home chicken-and-waffles experience, you can snag the waffle breakfast tacos at Taco Bell, starting on March 27. They'll include waffle shell, stuffed with scrambled eggs, sausage or bacon and cheese and come with a side of sweet syrup to drizzle over the top. (Sounds sort of like the offerings at the SoCal-based chainlette Bruxie, if you ask us.)
So much for the breakfast of champions.
