The day that many Taco Bell fans have been waiting for has finally arrived. The Cool Ranch Doritos Locos Taco is here. The taco is the same thing as the Nacho Cheese version, but with different seasoning on the shell. That doesn’t mean people aren’t swarming Taco Bell restaurants to get it, though.
In fact, the Associated Press reports Taco Bell tried to give people who couldn’t wait any longer a special treat, announcing on their Facebook profile earlier this week that customers could drop by stores to pick up a Cool Ranch taco a day early. However, when that day (Wednesday) arrived, fans in search of the new taco were told by employees in many locations that they had to wait until Thursday.
Of course, the spurned fans took to the company’s Facebook page to register their anger and defeat. Taco Bell responded with a statement apologizing for the mix up, saying they were working with participating restaurants to get them all to honor the early release.
The Nacho Cheese version of the taco has been a huge hit for the company, selling over 300 million tacos in a year. Taco Bell plans to continue to milk the idea of Doritos-flavored tacos with new flavors. So far, they’ve announced a spicy version using Doritos Flamas seasoning that should be out later this year.
