Junk food junkies will soon have a new ultimate craving to bite into at Taco Bell - the Doritos Locos Taco, which features a taco shell made of Doritos and all of the regular taco fillings inside. The crazy Doritos taco, which was unveiled last year as being tested in select markets in Southern California and Toledo, Ohio, is now slated for a national release.
Taco Bell's parent company, Yum Brands, teamed up with PepsiCo to create the taco shells made of nacho cheese flavored Doritos. They debuted in early 2011 in select markets and proved to be such a success that they'll be coming to Taco Bells around the U.S. now.
The fillings on the Doritos Locos Taco are said to be milder than the company's regular tacos to compensate for the taco shell's extra flavor.
If the Doritos Locos Taco is a hit, I wonder if they'll start coming up with other Taco Bell - Doritos combinations, like maybe the Ranch Doritos Chicken Taco. Yum. Or perhaps a spicy version, like the Flaming Hot Doritos Locos Taco. Taco Bell, take note.
