"The rumors are true. Doritos Locos Tacos are becoming Doritos chips," Doritos said on its Facebook page Monday. The company's partnership with Taco Bell -- which produced a line of Taco Bell tacos flavored like Nacho Cheese and Cool Ranch Doritos -- proved so popular last year that Taco Bell hired 15,000 people to "handle the growth." According to the Daily Beast, Taco Bell sold a million Doritos Locos Tacos per day in 2012.
Frito-Lay was so inspired by the success of its Doritos-Taco Bell line, they've created a series of Doritos Locos taco-flavored chips, headed for shelves April 8.
Doritos made the announcement Monday over Twitter:
