Taco Bell Tests Dorito-Flavored Taco Shells: Five Repurposed Junk Foods

Why in the hell didn't someone think of this years ago?

If you're lucky enough to live in Ohio or Kansas, run to your neighborhood Taco Bell because hallelujah! They're test marketing taco shells made from nacho cheese-flavored Doritos!

That's right - a giant orange Dorito, filled with Taco Bell's best fillings. It's the Dorito Loco Taco, because it's loco that no one thought of this before now!

Can't you feel the joy in this taste tester?

We're wondering, what other snack foods are begging to be repurposed?

Cheesy Poof Hot Dog Buns

They're gonna need a bigger extruder! One that can pump out enough cheesy corn mush that will plump to the size of a hot dog bun when it's cooked. Preferably with a frankfurter-sized indentation to hold the meat. Hot dog buns are usually stale anyway. Might as well go all-the-way crunchy.

Chips Ahoy! Shot Glasses

Has there ever been a harder, sturdier cookie to come from Nabisco's lab? Mold the dough into a regulation shot glass, bake, and fill with rum. The alcohol will leach the chocolate flavor from the chips, while the brick density of the cookie holds the rum safely until you pour it down your gullet. Choco-rum cookie shots! Hello, Sailor!
