Ever since Taco Bell launched the celebrated Doritos® Locos Tacos in Canada in August 2013, Canadian Taco Bell fans have had one, bold request: DLT for Life.
Starting January 13, 2014, Taco Bell Canada will make that dream a reality when Doritos® Locos Tacos become a permanent menu item at Taco Bell restaurants across the country.
To celebrate the news, a Canadian Taco Bell superfan decided to make a permanent commitment by getting a Doritos® Locos Taco tattoo on his arm, in exchange for a lifetime of DLTs.
The entire tattoo experience was documented in a short edgy video that Taco Bell fans can watch on You Tube and Facebook.com/tacobellcanada.
"Although Doritos® Locos Tacos were only supposed to be in Canada for a limited time, Taco Bell Canada fans loved them so much, we had to take action to make DLT a permanent menu item," explains Veronica Castillo, Marketing Manager, Taco Bell Canada. "In a bold move, we invited one of our biggest fans to profess his love for Doritos® Locos Tacos by getting a DLT tattoo in return for free DLTs for Life," says Castillo.
"As Canada's favourite brand of flavoured tortilla chip, we had a hunch that the Doritos® Locos Tacos could be a real winner," says Jason McDonell, Vice President, Chief Marketing Officer, PepsiCo Foods Canada. "Doritos® fans and Taco Bell customers in Canada blew us away with their appetite for this bold taco experience. We are thrilled to see this collaboration with Taco Bell Canada become a permanent one," says McDonell.
Doritos® Locos Tacos feature Taco Bell's famous seasoned beef, crisp shredded lettuce, diced juicy red ripe tomatoes and real cheddar cheese in a shell made from Doritos® Nacho Cheese tortilla chips. Doritos® Locos Tacos are available at Taco Bell locations across Canada at a wallet-friendly $1.49 ($1.99 for a Doritos® Locos Tacos Supreme).
