i remember when doritos first came out-they also had plain doritos and taco doritos.the taco flavor was the best and is[im sure]the same flavor as "zesty taco" in the split bags that have two flavors in them-they should throw out the second flavor and just fill the bag with zesty taco.i used to eat them watching "kolshak the nightstalker" those were the days.oh to have a time machine!!

I loved the taco Doritos, they were so much better then the one they have today. I wish they would bring them back. I would buy them!

I've never forgotten the Taco Doritos either - they were the best!! Cool Ranch is a great flavor but that original taco flavor was unique and SO GOOD!

I am so disappointed that they discontinued the Smokin' Cheddar Doritos last year!!! They were awesome! They were in a brown bag. Now they have some hot, spicy blends that aren't as good as the Smokin' Cheddar ones!!! Shame on them!

I wish they would bring back the original plain Doritos recipe, the plain ones they have now suck. I used to heat up a flour tortilla and spread butter on it then put Doritos on top then roll the whole thing up. It was sooooo good. Still is.

The combo of the Taco Doritos and Ranch flavored was a mistake- the flavors combined. Last fall, after all that 'voting for your favorite flavor' promo, we had Taco Doritos, labled with "Back by Popular Demand". They disappeared after a few months. Now, last week my sister brought me a bag of Doritos she bought at Smith's(AKA Kroger, etc..) It's called "Doritos Late Night-Tacos at Midnight". These are the BEST! If you're one of those people who digs around in the bag for the chips with the most seasoning, you'll love these 'cause they all have extra seasoning!Hope you guys can get them wherever you are.I'm in N.M.. I'm stocking up!

I would really like for you to bring the sour cream and onion doritos back. They were the best. The ranch doritos have nothing on the sour cream. I would love for them to come back. Thanks!

hey guys! they are back-in the same style package as before,no doubt to lure us old nostalgia buffs back-the bag has an ornage/yellow sombrero on it and say original taco (i think) and they are EXACTLY the same ones-i cant get enough!!!!!

Just bought some taco Doritos today at Wal Mart. The design on the bag looks exactly like it did on the 70s.

I bought the taco-flavored Doritos in the "retro" bag when they were briefly available a few years ago. Although they were marketed as the original taco flavor from the '60s and '70s, I can assure you that they were NOT. They were the re-formulated taco flavor which came out in the early-'80s and had a strong sour cream taste, absolutely NOTHING like the original taco flavored Doritos I loved as a child. I threw most of the bag in the trash. False advertising.

We used to buy the original plain Doritos and drizzle them with melted margarine, because you know, we all used margarine then. We must have done that because we had no dip or something. I remember them as being so delicious. I tried it once as an adult and it wasn't close or how I remembered it. Same with popcorn - can't seem to duplicate how it was back then - the popcorn seems to shrivel now.
