Support the independent voice of Dallas and help keep the future of Dallas Observer free.

Do you remember where you were the first time you tried Cool Ranch Doritos? It was 1986, Goose and Mav were killin' karoke in Top Gun, "Rock Me Amadeus" and "Papa Don't Preach" were hits, and parachute pants and leg warmers were both in style. And Cool Ranch Doritos?! Damn, those were good times.

Well, 2012 will be the year remembered for not just one Doritos flavored Taco Bell shell but two. The Huffington Post has confirmed what's been rumored for a while, and even has a time frame: Cool Ranch-flavored taco shells will arrive at Taco Bells this summer. In other words, your summer plans, and America's general downfall, are both complete.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
