The Smails Kid: Epicanis: Can't they just buy a pusher robot for that?

Shoving is the answer.

Do not listen to the pusher robot.

God damn the pusher robot.

Rabid Badger Beaver Weasel: I haven't seen the Doritos Locos Taco flavored Doritos in stores lately, though. And I'm still waiting for Taco Bell to make a Doritos Locos Taco with the Taco flavored Doritos.

I believe the world would implode if that ever happened.

Hey subby, if the Taco Bell people are coming to you and shoving food down your throat without your permission, I have one question. Who the fark you gotta blow to get that deal?

Darth_Lukecash: lockers: If it wasn't ass backwardsly stumbled upon, I would say it was marketing genius.

I'm not sure about that. There's a long history of corporate synergy and cross product. Like Oreo Blizzards... Since the same company owns Taco Bell and Doritos, they probably thought of it years ago , but had to figure out the recipes and manufacturing processes. So it's not falling into it

They only thing that caught them by surprise is the popularity.

I think Taco Bell had to wait until the Doritos Blizzard cross merchandising deal was done.
