Taco Bell has announced that they will soon be launching the second flavor in their wildly successful Doritos Locos line-up with the Cool Ranch Doritos Locos Tacos! The zesty-flavored concoction is the follow-up to Taco Bell's original Doritos Locos Taco, which first launched back in March 2012. The super popular menu item, which featured a taco shell made of Nacho Cheese Doritos, quickly went on to become the most successful product launch in the history of Taco Bell, going on to sell over 350 million tacos in less than a year.
Cool Ranch Doritos Locos Tacos features a shell made out of Doritos Cool Ranch chips on the outside, filled with the classic tastes of the Taco Bell crunchy taco on the inside: 100 percent premium seasoned beef, crisp shredded lettuce and real cheddar cheese. Available exclusively at participating Taco Bell restaurants nationwide beginning March 7, 2013, the suggested retail price for the Cool Ranch Doritos Locos Tacos is $1.39 (160 calories; 10g total fat) and $1.69 for a Cool Ranch Doritos Locos Tacos Supreme (200 calories; 12g total fat) with reduced-fat sour cream and diced tomatoes. A Cool Ranch Doritos Locos Tacos $5 Buck Box will include a Doritos Locos Taco Supreme, Burrito Supreme®, Crunchy Taco and a medium fountain drink. For people looking for lower-calorie, lower-fat options, Cool Ranch Doritos Locos Tacos will be available Fresco Style with 140 calories and 7g total fat.
Fans of the original taco can look forward to tasting the new Cool Ranch concoction on March 7th, exactly one year to the day of the Doritos Locos Taco launch.
