Doritos Locos Tacos – Nacho Cheese & Crunchy Taco


I’m a sucker for a new Doritos flavor.  Doritos are a favorite of mine and I can handle them in smaller servings or single servings but I cannot handle them in a full-size bag.  I tried the Cool Ranch & Crunchy Taco variety, so when I spotted this Doritos Locos Tacos – Nacho Cheese & Crunchy Taco double serving bag at Walgreen’s I decided to give it a try.
I can say off the bat, the Cool Ranch variety is a lot better. These were rather … lack luster for me.  You get the strong nacho cheese flavor with the slightly spiced crunchy taco flavor.  But I don’t feel the two blend together well nor do they make a “wow” appeal for a snack.  Don’t get me wrong, they’re alright … but that’s about it. Alright.
A serving size is 1 ounce, which gives you roughly 11 chips.  A serving will cost you 4 points plus values, which is typical for almost any chip and Dorito.  They are selling the full size bags at the grocery store, but I’m not sure how long they’ll be around since these are a limited edition flavor.

Doritos Locos Tacos – Cool Ranch & Crunchy Taco


I spotted these new Doritos Locos Tacos Cool Ranch & Crunchy Taco at CVS and was intrigued. I’ve tried the Taco Bell Doritos Locos Taco in both the original and cool ranch flavors and enjoyed them.  So I figured the Doritos version had to be equally as delicious because I truthfully only tried the taco for the Doritos flavored shell.
The Doritos Locos Tacos flavor is a twist flavor that consists of cool ranch and taco flavored Doritos. I’ve tried the Crunchy Taco flavored Doritos on their own before and found they were “okay” but mixed with the cool ranch they are delicious. You get the classic bold and zippy cool ranch flavor, with a mildly spiced crunchy taco – you can tell the difference based on the coloring of the chips.
A serving is 1 ounce – roughly 11 chips.  A serving is 4 points plus values.  The bag I purchased was the, I guess “deluxe” size bag (99 cents – $1.50). These are sold in a full-size bags at the grocery store.

What is your favorite Doritos flavor?

Cool Ranch Doritos Locos Taco

For a late lunch today I swung through the Taco Bell drive-thru with my niece and picked myself up a Cool Ranch Doritos Locos Taco (original flavor – not supreme which includes sour cream).  Cool Ranch Doritos are my absolute favorite Doritos flavor so when I saw they came out with these I was excited.  I had tried the Nacho Cheese Doritos Locos Taco when that came out — well over 6-months ago and though it was good so I felt the Cool Ranch version could only be that much better.

The taco itself was yummy!  It consists of a nicely seasoned Cool Ranch taco shell but not overpoweringly seasoned.  The ground beef, lettuce and cheese is as it’s provided in any staple Taco Bell taco.  It was a nice “treat” since I tend to make my own tacos at home.  I only had one, which was satisfying for me.

Weight Watchers Points Plus wise — this was 4 PP.  The supreme version, which has sour cream on it, is 5 PP.  I typically never get anything “supreme” at Taco Bell but if sour cream is something you enjoy on tacos – enjoy!  I admit it’s nice to try because it is so different from a classic taco.
