Taco Bell’s Doritos Locos Taco

I know it sounds totally gross, but, trust me, I would not be writing about this strange Doritos chip/taco shell hybrid taco at this hour if it was. So, listen up, amigos, the new (or new-ish, I think it’s been around for a while now) Doritos Locos Taco at Taco Bell is kind of earth-shattering good. Seriously, on the freaky fast food items scale, with that nasty-ass Grilled Chicken at KFC being like, a one and the flaky-pastry gloriousness of McDonald’s Baked Cherry Pie being a ten, I’d say the Doritos Locos Taco would rate a solid 9. Yep, it’s that’s good.

But, like all good things, Taco Bell’s alliance with Doritos may not last long. So, if you’re a Doritos fan and you like tacos, you need to try this shit out, pronto. Unlike myself and Greta who recently declared Doritos to be “her favorite chip forever and ever” (which is a bit scary!) Mrs. Yeti is not, by any stretch of the imagination, a fan of Doritos and even she said she loved it. So, ladies like it too!

But, like I said, there has been no word on how long this promotion will last, so, I suggest you make a run for the border today and check out the Doritos Locos Taco (sorry, I just love typing that crazy name!) for yourself. Hell, if you really hate it, let me know and I’ll pay you back the $1.29 you wasted buying it. Yes, I just guaranteed your taco. Now git!

L.A. Donut Tour: Day One – Randy’s Donuts (Inglewood)

A good friend of ours is staying with us this week and seeing as we are both between jobs, we decided to have some good cheap fun this visit. No movies at the Arclight, no expensive theme parks or museums, no shopping…just good, old-fashioned donut worship. And what better place to explore the magic of cheap fried dough than in the car-centric Southland? So, without further ado, I give you our first ever L.A. Donut Tour! Yay!

Despite talking about it for years, neither of us had ever been to the world-famous Randy’s Donuts in Inglewood, so, naturally, we started there. We tried a cake donut, a chocolate frosted and a sprinkled and despite the giant, iconic donut on the roof of the building and the appropriately seedy, LAX-adjacent vibe in the parking lot (like all the best donut joints in Los Angeles, Randy’s does not have a dining area) I gotta tell ya, I’ve had way better donuts at several major chains. Sorry, Randy…

However, Greta (who is our tie-breaking third judge on the tour), absolutely adored the bright pink frosting on her selection, so, I’m gonna be generous and give Randy’s two out of five stars.

Here’s hoping for better luck at our next stop tomorrow…
