(Newser) – You may have scoffed when Taco Bell unveiled its Doritos Locos Taco—a taco wrapped in a Nacho Cheese Doritos-flavored shell—but the masses apparently love it, because it's become Taco Bell's most successful launch ever. More than 200 million have been sold since March, leading to a much-needed boost in revenue for the fast food chain. Now Taco Bell is considering two new flavors of the taco, the Orange County Register reports: the spicy, chili-lime Flamas and the classic Cool Ranch. They're already being tested in some regions.
