Behold! I Bring You Good Tidings of Great Taco!

Behold! I Bring You Good Tidings of Great Taco!

There comes a moment in time where each generation is defined by a product. 1970s: Bellbottoms. 1980s: The Walkman. 1990s: Jnco skater jeans. 2000s: Any iDevice.

Perhaps the Millienials of the 20-teens will be defined by the magic that is the Taco Bell Doritos Taco.  Geekosystem probably states it best as the opine below:

Since there is no hope of stopping this gastronomic train wreck, I’m hoping that TacoBell will embrace it and other recent stories on their food with a slogan along the lines of: “The Dorito Taco: 36% meat, 100% Doirtos.”

I’m down with that.  A company that espouses the value of the 4th Meal concept must understand the inherent strangeness of such a product.  At the same time, I’m fully okay with the concept.  From the KFC Double Down to Man vs. Food, we’ve become accustomed as a society to gastro-abnormalities.  Surely if we can stomach the foodstuffs of This is Why You’re Fat, then we can handle a little nacho cheese powder.  (Maybe we can’t stomach TiWYF, since it appears the site no longer exists.)

The Doritos Locos Taco was first served up in test markets across the US earlier this April.  With a second wave of Internet excitement this week, let’s hope a full roll-out isn’t far behind.
