Review: Taco Bell Doritos Locos Tacos

You ever had someone in your life that you love and care about deeply? Then that person falls into some hard times, makes bad choices, and does dumb things. That does not shake you though, and you have faith they will pull through. In fact, you do everything you can in your power to help them and make sure they make it through this hard time. Despite your love and affection, they just keep disappointing you until, after much thought and heartbreak, you give up. Then, just as you have moved on in your life, they come back better then ever! They promise of great new things and say they have changed and things are different. In the back of your mind, you are still wondering if they can be trusted.

This is how I feel about Taco Bell Nowadays. 

They have had a rough year. They have been raising prices, putting out crap (like their breakfast), and have stood by their choices. Well now times are changing. Taco Bell has just changed their slogan to Live Mas. They also introduced their most hyped item EVER, the Doritos Locos Taco. In a partnership with Doritos they have come together to make something...... spectacular.

This is the first item from Taco Bell in months that I can say lives up to the innovation standards I have come to expect from the fast food giant. They have gone back to their roots, taking one of their original (and I would say one of their best) items, the taco, and have shook it at it's core. There is not much you can do to a hard taco. They realized they can only shove so much in it (and have probably tried everything they can) so why not change the taco itself. It is now a crunchy Nacho Cheese Dorito flavored shell. Everything else about the taco remains the same, only the shell has changed.

I first thought this sounded like a horrible idea and was going to fail. Doritos are way to flimsy to hold together as a shell. Taco Bell fixed that by lining the inside with some sort of thin edible wax coating that holds the shell together better then the original shell. I imagined it would taste like a taco shell covered in Macaroni and Cheese powder. Thankfully, it doesn't. It taste like a Dorito. In fact, it is better than the chips. The powder flavoring is not laid on as thick, so it gives you a lighter tasting flavor that compliments the beef, cheese, and lettuce so well.

Rating 5/5 "It's The Bee's Knees"

Taco Bell has done something good here and I really hope they continue the trend. I am not ready to trust them 100% quite yet but this is a good start.

  1. Taco Bell and Frito lay can't be trusted ,They claim they came up with this great idea.Well they did not ! I did, not the veteran,and not this Gary Cole. I Sharon Waid a Handicap single mother did. I sent them the proposal in 2008 and again in 2010, I have a the correspondence to them both .Letters certified and NOTARIZED to them and to myself as well . They said they could not take unsolicited ideas on both occassions ! then have the nerve to steel them from myself and run with it.Then to top it off they go against there own statement and ask the public on their own wrapper to give them new ideas.How wrong is that ?And the difference in the inmate Cole and myself is he sent his idea for all flavors of doritos for a taco too his lawyer and family, not to the companies like I did.So how could they even know of his idea in the first place.I have a YOUTUBE video under Doritos Locos Tacos scam .com .,it will explain my story. No lawyer will consider my case because im broke,I haven't found one on contingency yet . Please believe the real truth, Its corporate greed !!!!! Sincurly Sharon Waid
