Someone I know got a couple of these the other day.

If there was any less meat and cheese on them, they could be considered vegan.

The ones that we have eaten at two locations have had plenty of meat on them.

Finally got to try one today. I thought it was pretty good. The Doritos taste came through better than I expected. It was better than I was expecting too.

Re: Taco Bell to make a taco with a nacho cheese Doritos shell?

Yesterday the fiancee wanted to try these. We each got a couple and found them to be pretty tasty. Lots of flavoring on the shells. They weren't stale either. It's only the second time in the last 10 years that I've been to Taco Bell so it's not something I indulge in since there are many other better options.

Had one yesterday. It was ok. I was expecting more of a punch of Doritos taste. My kid loves TB I need to get him one this weekend and see what he thinks.

If they would use the Tapatio on the Doritos shell, then these would be outrageous!

Any chance of you sharing info on these? I need contacts like that.

Well, I definitely don't need it, just a big want.

Taco Bell is a Pepsi account. My wife works for Pepsi. I assume that's how she got them, but I didn't ask.

I tried one of these the other day. It was decent, but I don't know how often I'll go back for more.

They don't taste all that different from normal tacos. The only way that it tastes even halfway like Doritos is to eat a piece of the shell by it's self. With all the taco stuff in it, you can't really tell the difference.

Re: Taco Bell to make a taco with a nacho cheese Doritos shell?

I had them again today, and I have to say, my shells this time were stale like others have mentioned. That definitely dampened my enjoyment a little bit.

Hopefully those of you getting stale shells are reporting it back to Taco Bell, either locally or contacting corp.

I thought Yum Foods owned them. I know Pepsi did before, maybe they still do, not sure.

Anyway, I tried one, and I liked it. No overwhelming nacho taste, just right. Good amount of meat and cheese, too.

I'd buy another.

Finally tried a few of these tonight. They were amazing. I hope they do all kinds of new things with these shells.

Yum Brands was a spinoff company founded by Pepsi to operate their fast food division. So technically, still owned by Pepsi.

"Technically" it's not. It was a spin-out. They still have a relationship to sell Pepsi products, though.
