Today Taco Bell decided to release their new Cool Ranch Doritos Locos Taco a day early! If you are like me and follow them on Facebook or Twitter, this news instantly changed your lunch plans. But, like anything new, I was worried about some restaurants not participating in the “Just Ask” early release date, so I gave my local Taco Bell a ring. I was told that they had them, but that I needed a coupon to purchase one. Of course, I didn’t have a coupon, so I went looking for one on the internet. No coupon was to be found, but I did read about a lot of other people hearing the same story when they tried to purchase one. Well, I was determined to get my hands on a few today, so I grabbed this custom Cool Ranch Doritos Locos Taco USB drive, and hit the snowy streets of the Chicagoland area.
A few minuets later, I was standing in front the assistant store manager asking me for my order. I immediately asked about the Cool Ranch DLTs, and received the same response I had gotten over the phone, “We have them, but are only selling them to customers with the coupon.” With out thinking twice I told him, “I don’t have a coupon, but I do have this really cool custom USB drive shaped like the Cool Ranch DLT!” I handed him the USB drive thinking this would give me the same special Taco Bell cred the coupon did. He looked at the drive for a few seconds and replied, “How many would you like?” VICTORY WAS MINE! I ordered enough to use in a few pictures later, and one to scarf down there.
In a few moments, I had my prize and opened the first taco. I held it just long enough to pose for a quick photo with my iPhone then took my first bite. Amazing! They nailed it! I suggest giving one a try today, or in the very near future. Also, check out the custom Doritos Loco Taco USB drive that saved the day in the pictures below.
