I’ve spoken at great length of my affinity for culinary innovation, and my angst over what I believe to be unfair treatment of those who have pioneered said innovations. We’ve all got to eat, right? So why is it that we can name the inventors of the light bulb and the telephone and the iPad (if you want to get contemporary), but we have no idea who the first dude was to take a chance on a white, ovular excretion of a chicken’s rear end? The Eggman was most certainly not John Lennon. But where would be without the incredible, edible egg? You can forget that tasty cruller, my friend.
Anyway, my love for all things edible and my appreciation of chow-time visionaries often leads me to the same glowing beacon on the horizon – Taco Bell.
T-Bell has championed some great foodstuffs over the years, many of which influenced other outlets to up their game. Remember the Border Bowl? I’m lookin’ at you KFC! But today they have quite simply blown it out of the water. The Doritos Locos Tacos have arrived, effective immediately. The basic hard-shell taco with one simple, brilliant modification - the shell...is a giant Dorito.
Life will never be the same.
