A TACO Bell employee posted a video just in time for National Taco Day on how to order a “secret item” that the fast-food company had seemingly discontinued.
Donut King, a TikTok user who often posts food hacks and recipes, shared that the popular Doritos Cheesy Gordita Crunch can still be made if a customer asks workers to make a small adjustment.
“Order a Cheesy Gordita Crunch, tell them to replace the normal taco shell with a Dorito Loco Taco,” Donut King said in the video.
The Doritos Cheesy Gordita Crunch, described by the chain as a “really delicious identity crisis,” remains listed on the company’s website but is currently labeled as “not currently available.”
Donut King films himself making the Doritos Cheesy Gordita Crunch and ends it declaring “Yo Quiero” – the catchphrase of Taco Bell’s chihuahua mascot Gidget who was popular in the company’s commercials in the 1990s..
The video has since gone viral with more than 92,000 likes. However, some viewers quickly commented that the secret item was not so secret.
“I used to work at Taco Bell … this wasn’t a secret lmao you could get any taco shell you wanted,” wrote one TikTok user.
Another commenter claimed that the item has been on the menu since 2013.
