The Doritos-Taco Bell Marriage Takes Another Step, Doritos is Now Making Taco Bell-Flavored Chips
We get it, Doritos and Taco Bell. You guys are in love. Earlier this week, Taco Bell announced they're about to start rolling out a NEW Doritos Locos Taco, this one will have a shell made from Cool Ranch Doritos. And now that Doritos has boosted Taco Bell's business, Taco Bell is returning the favor. Doritos just announced they're going to start rolling out a new line of Taco Bell-flavored chips.
They say they'll taste like a mix of nacho cheese and Taco Bell tacos. There's no word on when the chips are going to come out, Doritos just says they'll be out SOON.
PepsiCo USED to own Taco Bell's parent company, Yum Brands, AND Doritos' parent company, Frito-Lay. But they spun out Yum Brands in October of 1997 into an independent company. Yum's restaurants, like Taco Bell, KFC, and Pizza Hut, all still exclusively serve Pepsi products.
