Dorito shell taco makes an appearance in California Taco Bells

We thought it would remain in the margins of junk food culture forever,
the Loch Ness of fast food dishes. But after a brief appearance in
Toledo, Ohio, the Doritos Locos Taco has surfaced in Fresno and
Bakersfield, California as this rousing commercial illustrates with the
clever tagline, “San Fancis-NO. Sacrament-NO. L.A.? N-O. The only place
to get the Doritos Locos taco is Bakersfield and Fres-YES.”

Zak S. Cowan of The Renegade Rip,
a blog based at Bakersfield College where the new tacos are available,
had this to say in its review of the Supreme version of the product (as
opposed to regular):

“Upon opening the wrapper to the supreme variety of the Locos Taco, I
was finally excited; the taco had sour cream oozed on it. Once I started
eating the taco, I knew that this was the way to go if you wanted a
Doritos-flavored taco. The messiness of the Doritos Locos Taco Supreme
is exactly what a taco should be, and I enjoyed every bite substantially
more than the regular version. I can be certain about one thing after
my whole Locos Taco experience: my regular at Taco Bell isn’t going to
change anytime soon, but I probably will order one of these at least one
more time before they’re gone forever.”
