I’ve said my piece on the Doritos Locos Taco: It’s not bad, but it’s not anywhere close to the best thing on the Taco Bell menu and is, in fact, rather underwhelming.
But it turns out the gimmick paid off in a massive way, as the Doritos Locos Taco stands as the most successful new Taco Bell product ever. Obviously the curiosity had something to do with it. Also, I bet lots of people who don’t want to admit they love Taco Bell are always looking for an excuse to eat Taco Bell so they were like, “Oh, haha, we should totally try that new Doritos Locos Taco, can you believe that thing?”
Meanwhile, real Taco Bell fans know it’s the Cheesy Gordita Crunch or GTFO. I do need to try the Cheesy Gordita Crunch with the Doritos Locos Taco inside, which some Taco Bells will apparently make for you. Our man Catsmeat, who passed along this article, pulled it off and reported good things.
But if they’re willing to make one with a Doritos Locos Taco inside, they also must be willing to make one with a Volcano Taco inside, right? And there’s just no way that wouldn’t be much better.
