Last year, Taco Bell started something beautiful when it presented the Doritos Locos Taco, a stunning combination of Nacho Cheese Doritos and the traditional T-Bell taco fixings. Then, in March of this year, they gave us a second Cool Ranch variety. Then, there was nothing. But thankfully those dark days of doubting the existence of a new Doritos Locos flavor are over: Taco Bell has announced that the third member of the family is arriving on August 22
The Mexican drive-thru destination is doing its damndest to hype up the mystery with this latest Doritos Locos variety. They even resorted to sneaky Vines on Friday, offering this teaser to Twitter
This might be more maddening if the Internet wasn't already convinced the shell under that wrapper is 100% Flamas Doritos. Ad Age points out
that Taco Bell's promise to bring "mas heat" with the newest offering points strongly to Doritos' spicy red chips (with a hint 'o lime)...especially since they already tested Flamas Doritos Locos last year. Our friends at FoodBeast also noted with suspicion
the mysteriously tiny bag of Flamas in a jumbo box of Doritos that Taco Bell sent over as part of their #_DLT campaign
Flamas or not (definitely Flamas), you should go ahead and clear your lunch schedule for August 22. 'Cause the Locos are back, baby.
