I finally tried the Doritos Locos Taco at Taco Bell. It probably was a detriment to my weight-loss efforts, but it’s in the name of research, so it’s okay, right? 🙂 I also got a few other types of tacos for comparison and reference (also for research — gotta have a benchmark!).
My review is that it is good. However, I expected a little more. I must admit that I am somewhat spoiled when it comes to good tacos. I don’t normally get plain tacos at Taco Bell because I often eat tacos at a certain Mexican restaurant that are really good, plus I make my own sometimes. I’d say the Doritos Locos Taco is better than their normal taco, but I prefer some of their specialty tacos, like the Double Decker and the Nacho Cheese Crunch. Maybe if Taco Bell would put the Doritos shell inside one of those specialty tacos, it would be even better.
Maybe they could figure out a way to make a taco shell out of Cheetos — that would be even better.
