Sandwich Monday: Cool Ranch Tacos
Originally published on Mon March 11, 2013 11:50 am
When Taco Bell released the Doritos Locos Taco last year, taco watchers everywhere knew the Cool Ranch Taco couldn't be that far behind. It's a basic Taco Bell taco, but the shell has been coated in Cool Ranch Doritos dust.
Robert: Does Taco Bell still use the slogan "Run for the Border," or have all the rogue food scientists already escaped?
Ian: Man, this taste really takes me back to that place Nowhere In Mexico.
Ian: Something tells me the fairy that sprinkled the magic flavor dust on these is incapable of flight.
Miles: The only thing harder to scrub off than magic flavor dust is the shame you feel from eating a Doritos Taco Loco.
Robert: I have to admit, this works better than the time Long John Silver used goldfish crackers to make the Filet-O-Minnow sandwich. I had to eat a whole school of those.
Peter: I think it's awful that we're raising a generation for whom the word "ranch" will mean "extra salty."
Ian: Is there such a thing as Don'tritos?
Mike: I wouldn't be surprised if Taco Bell moved their entire operation to the Cool Ranch. The horses are right there.
Eva: If grown-ups put "cool" in front of something, teenagers will automatically NOT eat it. Maybe this was Michelle Obama's idea.
Peter: Is this why my kids refuse to sit and watch PBS Cool Newshour with Cool Lehrer with me?
[The verdict: Not the best. This combines two sacred snacks, Cool Ranch Doritos and Taco Bell Tacos, but doesn't improve either of them.]
