    There's nothing worse than Dorito breath.

    Couple that with taco and sour cream farts you have an unholy union of reek and despair with this product. :angry:

    Snailface disapproves of this fast-food scene release. :angry:

    What is Taco Bell like? There are about 4 in the UK from what I've heard, and I'm not making a long journey just to get to a fast food restaurant.

    Back when I actually ate that shit, Taco Bell is decent tasting.. for the 1st 120 seconds. If you don't eat it within that window of time, it will be a cold disgusting soggy unedible piece of shit.

    Fast food is legalized crack cocaine. It does not satisfy. You just need more, and more, and more, and more.

    It's best when you're drunk and there's nothing else still open.
    Not the highest of quality.....in fact it's pretty much the opposite.
    But on the upside, you can get your stomach full for two bucks.

    That's the kind of meal you eat when you want to do damage; calling it "Scorched Earth" is fitting in so many ways...

    taco bell is my favorite food, i eat there 3-5 times a week for my whole life and don't plan on ever stopping.
    that said the dorito's taco was dissapointing, the shell seemed thinner than a normal taco shell. i was expecting a thicker shell with a doritoes crunch.
    it gives a strange spicy aftertaste and gets your fingers sticky.
    i reccomend trying one to anyone who likes taco bell but don't get your hopes up they don't live up to the hype.

    Take one thing from an old man; That plan will not suit you forever.

    Thank you for the first-hand review. I expect the shell is thinner so that it can be more easily manipulated into the traditional taco shape.
    At some point I'll give it a try myself, though I'd really rather wait until a cool ranch or sweet/spicy chili variant is created.

    it's working for now, maybe if i start to get fat i'll have to change my diet eventually but so far so good.

    that's no excuse both taco's and doritos are deep fried and very flexible beforehand they could have taken dorito's dough and fried it into taco shape easily.
    it could be they just sprayed the doritos seasoning on their regular taco shells and the oil that sticks the cheese to the corn shell gives it less crunch.

    it's also worth mentioning that the taco's are 30¢ more than a regular taco and the surpreme is 30¢ more than a taco surpreme, most of their limited time foods are cheaper than normal foods not more expensive.

    I actually had to go and watch the process of how tortilla chips are made. You're exactly right. I (now) imagine the hardest part is frying them while curling them into the taco shape. There was a lawsuit against Frito-Lay, the makers of Doritos, when a guy swallowed some of their chips and tore the inside of his throat. Since then the chips have been made thinner. Perhaps the thinness of these shells has something to do with that.

    Oh, and there was a time when drinking a gallon of whiskey per week and smoking lots of pot was a viable and working plan for me. All I'm saying is that these things change as your body ages.

    I will be venturing out in about an hour to taste this latest TB promo item. I'll post a small review and score it against it's most recent predecessors the beefy crunch burrito and cheesy flatbread whatever. The BCB was IMO the best of TB's .99¢ promotions, while an arguement can certainly be made for the 1/2 pound and beef and potato burrito before it skyrocketed to $1.59.

    a little backstory:

    Years back Taco Bell was THE destination to get your stomach full on short money. In the begining there were three different burritos for .99¢, tacos went for .89¢, and a number of different side items also clocked in at under $1.00. Now adays an Individual taco is $1.09, the afformentioned burritos have jumped to $1.59 save the original bean burrito, but who the hell wants a plain bean burrito? Left to fill the void of -$1.00 quasi mexican feasting is an endless string of promotional items which when bad seem to last forever (cheesy flatbread) and when good are gone too soon (beefy crunch burrito). The cheesy flatbread had me avoiding TB for months, while the BCB saw me 3-4 times a week. I would also like to mention the originally priced $1.99 combo menu has now also jumped up to $2.59, in these economic conditions where every nickel and dime matters this is a travesty in my eyes.
