A few weeks back, Taco Bell released the Doritos Locos Taco to the masses. Wars ended and pigs began to fly in honor of the celebration. Well, those two things didn’t really happen, but it certainly felt like it. By this time, one can imagine that you tried at least one of these delectable, enhanced taco treats. They’re legit tasty and can create some addictive tendencies. But with Taco Bell, everyone knows that customization is key to enjoy the joys of Ameri-Mexican food is by customizing the crap out of your order. This is where we step in.
As most of you know, our favorite item, and somewhat recent inductee to the FFG hollowed Hall of Fame, is the Cheesy Gordita Crunch. Combining a regular, hard shell taco and a warm flat bread Gordita creates enough adjective descriptives to choke a goat. I have to admit, that one of the first things I thought of whenever I heard Taco Bell was enhancing their shells with the taste of Doritos. It only made sense to couple this back breaking power with the Cheesy Gordita Crunch. I even pitched the idea to Taco Bell’s Chief Marketing Officer Brian Niccol. He was quite tickled with the idea, but I don’t know if we’ll ever see an official release of the item.
So I took measures into my own hands and ordered the item myself. While it can be a somewhat confusing order and while this all pretty much depends on your local Taco Bell employee’s handling on the price, it can be done. At the drive thru speaker terminal, I ordered something with the following verbage: “Can I get the Cheesy Gordita Crunch, with the Doritos Shell instead of a regular shell?”. A slight pause ensued, which I credit to the employee being amazed at my creativity, and then she responded with a : “You mean, make a Doritos Locos Taco and then wrap it in the Gordita and cheese?”. All in all, this is pretty much the same ostrich with a different tag, so I went with it for only a 30 cents upcharge.
The results were quite delightful, with the Doritos Locos shell still shining through like a beacon of glory to provide taste and crunch. Try out this little customization out today.
