The news, along with photos of the reality-bending chips, were first announced on the Doritos Twitter Feed [via Geekosystem]:
So the corn chips that became the basis of a wildly popular Taco Bell treat will soon be released as a corn chip pairing (there are apparently two types of Dorito in each bag; one taco-flavored and one being a standard Dorito) that supposedly mimics the flavor of the Taco Bell snack. The new chips will also be available in the Cool Ranch version of the Doritos Locos Taco, which for some reason seems even more bizarre. Perhaps we’re still in shock.
This is as good a time as any to announce that I’m selling the screen rights to my upcoming novelization of the movie version of the Producers, which was based on the Broadway show, based on the original Mel Brooks movie, which was itself based upon a travel pamphlet Mel Brooks read while waiting to catch a train to Schenectady… or so we’ve heard.
