        It's a sign of branded marketing gone wild.

    1. The surprising thing for me is it wasn't thought of, sooner. Tortillas chips aren't limited in flavor any more on store shelves, so, this was almost a natural.
      It's an interesting gimmick. I wonder if it'll last longer than the inspired beer bottles where you can scratch your name on the bottle with your keys.

      1. It's like a snake eating its tail.

        1. Will I be voted off the island if I tell you all that I want to eat my body weight in those?

          I am powerless against the Dorito. It's a sickness.

            Oooh, I wonder if it comes in Cool Ranch as well as Nacho Cheese!

              And....you just killed it for me. I had a spectacular underage drinking incident years ago involving Cool Ranch Doritos and Boone's Farm Strawberry Hill wine. To this day, just the smell of Cool Ranch makes me queasy.

                Love it! I had many incidents myself involving Boones Farm "wine". Thanks for the memory and the smile!

                Just heard on the news that Cool Ranch flavor will be out in the fall.

                Today is the best day in Culinary History, bar none.

            2. So apparently it's from back in April, it's Nacho Cheese flavor only, and it was test marketed in the Toledo market. Maybe someone in that area can tell us if it's still there and try some for us and report back... and send us some...

                I'll be driving through Toledo shortly. I'll take that plunge, or at least see if they still have them.

                  I'm in the Philly area and heard that these will be available in our area Taco Bells soon, although you have to ask, it won't be listed on the menu.

                  1. re: jujuthomas

                    That sounds like a bad plan for test marketing a new product, especially here in Philly where there are so few Taco Bells.

                      it may just be until they change the menu boards... dunno, it is what I heard on KYW one morning this week.

                        I'm not doubting you. This is Taco Bell after all. They push out some mind-numbingly bad concepts on a regular basis, so a non-marketed potentially decent concept isn't all that surprising.
