Doritos Locos Tacos Take Fresno

Perfect for those who would rather not eat their tacos and Doritos separately, the Doritos Locos Taco ditches the boring yellow corn tortilla exterior for bright, finger-staining orange. And it’s ever-so-slowly making its way around the country.

The L.A. Times reports the fast food chain’s new product follows a Facebook meme that started at least two years ago calling for the introduction of the Dorito-shelled taco. Taco Bell tells the Times its policy is not to accept unsolicited ideas of any kind.

Earlier this year, Taco Bell reportedly test-marketed the product in Kansas and Ohio.

Here’s a Fresno commercial that advertises the taco, exclaiming “this is really happening,” just in case you weren’t quite sure.
