Don't forget you can put your nickname in their Hall of Fame (Shame?  icon_razz)
Doritos Los Tacos - Wall of Fame gallery

I already ate McDonald's (Daily Double) for lunch, so I don't think I can do Taco Bell today. However, maybe Saturday.  icon_smile

fwiw, here's the nutritional info off the web site:

If they did a promotion with Fritos instead, I'd probably try it.

I tried it last week, mainly because beer makes me make bad decisions (that decision being going to Taco Bell in the first place). It was not great. Not disgusting, but it really doesn't add anything. Regular soft taco > Dorito taco.

I tried one earlier this week and honestly could not tell the difference between it and the regular shell version.  Of course, I rarely eat the regular shell version when I do risk a Taco Bell visit, so that may not be much of a comparison.  But I can't say I even noticed any flavor that told me the shell was a nacho cheese dorito.

This thing is an abomination. Doritos do not belong at Taco Bell.

Had 2 today. Not bad.
I do agree Fritos would probably be better, but all in all, it's edible.

Taco Bell has been selling Doritos for years now.  This is just a natural extension.

If you're in the SF Bay area, you may be better off just calling the TacoCopter to deliver some fresh tacos.  smile

Got 3 of these tonight, much better than I was expecting. If you break a piece of the shell off it tastes like a dorito by itself. When you add all the other ingredients it does lose some of the dorito taste but I still noticed it.

Not sure it was worth 30 cents extra for a dorito taco shell, but definitely worth a try.

Maybe they'd be better off just selling "Doritos cheese-flavor powder" in a little bottle that you sprinkle on top of the taco, and then that would give you the flavor, if not the powdery orange color hands effect. icon_smile

Broke my "never go to Taco Bell" rule today to grab 3 of those. I have to admit, it's not half-bad.

Was the after-taste as good as the initial taste?  The drink that never ends.

This link is not directly Doritos Locos Tacos-related, but this seemed like the place to share it.

The taco was a softer shell than a regular hard-shell taco. It didn't really crunch, more folded than anything else. There was a dusting of Nacho Cheese flavor, but it wasn't that strong. I think I prefer the regular tacos more than these. Mucho disappointismo.

You need to eat nine of them all at once and then follow up with a Corona. 

Come back with your impressions after you've done that, please.   icon_wink
