Has anyone seen the throw back Taco Flavored Doritos in your grocery store? They are so yummy! found a couple bags at Target and Walgreens a couple weeks ago went back but no more. I guess they were limited for January but a few people I know including myself would like to pick some up (in the South Bay).

    Were they mixed with another flavor? I contacted Frito-Lay a while back and was told that the Taco flavor was sold separately in many states, California not being one of them. As you mentioned, maybe it was a limited run. I'm in the South Bay and would also like to get them without having to get whatever flavor they're mixed in with.

      No not mixed, it was the original. It was a limited re-release and almost all gone but I did find some at Seven-Eleven in San Jose (Alum Rock /34th) Since your in the South Bay you might too. I didnt Find them at the Grocery Outlet in Redwood City or Campbell. The back of the bag says they will be back soon with a new package.

      The 'throw Back Taco' was an in and out item. The other Taco flavored Doritos are still hanging in there however they are not in the "set" at some of the bigger markets so consequently salesman will forgo that flavor for some of the better selling ones.

        I've seen them at Grocery Outlet but I was afraid. Might be worth a try.

          i don't normally look for these, but i was in the new-ish grocery outlet in dublin earlier this evening, and saw them there. they are 1.99/bag. a bit later i was in the pleasanton lucky supermarket, again, was not looking per se, but happened to see them there also, for $3something. the bag said "taco flavor" and "limited edition". Hope this helps someone who is looking for them.
