You may have scoffed when Taco Bell unveiled its Doritos Locos Taco—a taco wrapped in a Nacho Cheese Doritos-flavored shell—but the masses apparently love it, because it's become Taco Bell's most successful launch ever. More than 200 million have been sold since March, leading to a much-needed boost in revenue for the fast food chain.
