Taco Bell Set to Reveal Next Doritos Locos Taco Flavor

taco bell doritos ranch taco 300x225 Taco Bell Set to Reveal Next Doritos Locos Taco Flavor[1]Yum Brands’ (YUM[2]) Taco Bell revealed that a new Doritos Locos Taco flavor will be available on August 22[3] via a Tweet on Thursday.

The Tweet didn’t give fans any kind of hint as to what flavor the new Doritos Locos Taco will be, but Taco Bell is reportedly testing a Fiery Chicken Cool Ranch flavor. The company also hinted at the new taco with a Vines video that spelled out DLT in flames. Sales of the Doritos Locos Tacos are being cited as the reason for a 2% same-store sales increase in its second quarter, reports Nation’s Restaurant News.

Doritos Locos Tacos aren’t the only thing new to Taco Bell. The company tested a waffle taco[4] back in May, and has been moving towards a healthier appearance by testing out a “Power Protein”[5] menu in late July.
