(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.

Don't listen to the I-don't-even-own-a-television crowd.... these are quite yummy. Only complaint is that the shells are weak as hell. Please correct this Taco Bell.

Well have to give it a try one day. Who knows what will taste good together, still wondering about the guy that thought, tomato juice and clam juice, people will buy that..

They're not good. I gave into curiosity and tried them (and I do eat at Taco Bell on occasion when I'm on the road). The only people I know who like them are the type who think putting hot dogs in Prego is gourmet cooking.
