Anyone had the new taco bell nacho cheese dorito shell taco?

I had 3 last night.

They were absolutely delicious.

I highly recommend.

I had them. Good, although I can't really taste the nacho cheese part.

They've sold 100,000,000 in a little over 10 weeks.

I almost posted a couple weeks ago how awful it is.

Terrible idea and execution on so many levels it will be a case study in failure. They won't be selling them for much longer, I can promise you that. So eat up now, Norton

Seems like as good of a way to get diarrhea as any.

They're disgusting.....and that was me trying them with a massive hangover. I was pretty sure fried poop would've hit the spot that day....those certainly didn't.

I didn't think they were much more disgusting than anything else at TB (which, sadly, I still eat a few times a month), but the shell was flimsier than a normal taco shell.

For the record, the stuff I like at Taco Bell usually tends to get removed from the menu at some point. For years, my go-to was the Chili Cheese burrito, and more recently it was the Nacho Cheese Gordita. I think you can get them to make both items still, but it always confuses the person (confusing a TB employee never helps ensure a correct order), and they seem to charge you weird extra fees for ordering "special items." I think they also removed the Enchirito at one point, but then they brought it back.

The sad thing about TB is that if I order enough food to fill me up I'm going to spend $7-8, and for that price I can call in an order to go from Amaya's and eat much better food. It's amazing what laziness and a drive through window can do to make you overlook such a simple fact.

Announced today that Cool Ranch and Hot & Spicy Doritos shells will be added to menu (seriously). I might have to bite the bullet just to be able to tell my grandkids I was part of the first wave that set off real life idiocracy.

We can all agree that taco bell tacos are shitty as far as tacos go. However, they are 1000x better than jack in the box though. For fast food they do the job though when you are are hungry and want something fast and cheap.

If you can't admit a nacho cheese dorito taco shell makes them better than the regular plain shell, then I feel sorry for you.

JIB better than Doritos shell, but still the 2nd worst taco I have ever eaten.

Negative. Unless it is 3AM those would never be ordered for me... and I still would vastly prefer Taco Cabana at that point.

Well no shit, but we were comparing Taco Bell and JIB.

I will occasionally go grab JIB tacos (every 4-5 months), and while I always regret it, I enjoy them immensely while eating.
