Some fast-food restaurants are pushing something new for breakfast: sugary soft drinks.

Several chains, including Taco bell, are testing out a mix of drinks like Mountain Dew with orange juice. Others like Steak 'n Shake are offering free breakfast items with the purchase of a soft drink.

Experts say soft drinks are more profitable than coffee.
