Flamin’ Hot Doritos Locos Tacos Are Coming to Taco Bell Very Soon
Finally, some good news.
While most of the world is in quarantine, Taco Bell has made the generous move to give out Doritos Locos Tacos for free not once, but twice. Though it would seem to simply be a matter of helping out hungry, homebound customers, it might’ve secretly been an attempt to lay the groundwork for a new, spicier taco shell that T Bell had in the works all along.
Based on a series of rumors that have since been confirmed by Taco Bell, it appears that the world will see the debut of a new Flamin’ Hot Doritos Locos Taco dropping on April 16. Based around Flamin’ Hot Nacho Doritos, which dropped in 2019, the taco is the same winning combination of Dorito-themed shell and Taco Bell insides, except a little más caliente.
The first reports that something might be in the works come from Chewboom, where a San Antonio-based eater claims to have found them when swinging by to pick up a free Doritos Locos Taco on March 31. From there, rumors flourished on Reddit, where multiple commenters (both consumers and alleged Taco Bell employees alike) chimed in to affirm the existence of the mythical spicy-shelled taco.
Though you obviously shouldn’t believe most of what you read on the internet, it turns out they were right. Taco Bell eventually confirmed both the existence of the Flamin’ Hot DLT and the rumored April 16 release date, and mentioned a price of $1.95 each. They’re also available as part of Taco Bell’s Taco Variety Packs, which is an economical way to have a stay-at-home taco Tuesday when you order for delivery.
So if you’re desperate to live más once again, this is your time. Order this taco (safely) and start to feel the heat again.
