Doritos Locos Tacos Now Come in Chip Form

In a weird 'returning to their roots' sort of twist, Doritos is launching 2 new flavors

For some odd reason this sounds just a bit convoluted to us; the Doritos Locos Tacos, which took Doritos flavors and made them into a taco shell, are now becoming Doritos flavors themselves, cutting out the actual meat, cheese, lettuce, and tomatoes portion of the taco.

According to Doritos' Facebook page, two new Doritos chip flavors are coming out: Doritos Locos Taco and Doritos Locos Taco Cool Ranch. It looks like the company just took the original flavors (the cheesy Doritos and the Cool Ranch) and added in a new "crunchy taco" flavor, which will probably not mimic the satisfying soggy crunch of Taco Bell's tacos at 2 a.m.

In any case, Doritos has yet to announce a release date, but they're offering preview bites to Twitter winners if you tweet "how bold would you go for a chance to be the first to try them" at Doritos with the hastag #DoritosPallet. We almost expect a Doritos Locos Taco Doritos chip taco shell in the near future, but we imagine things would get too complicated from there. But seriously, people, please stop it with the crazy potato chip flavors. Honestly, the dip's where it's at.
