Former Taco Bell interns claim Doritos tacos was their idea

Doritos Locos Tacos unveiled last year

A group of people who once interned for Taco Bell's advertising company claims they were the first to come up with the idea of taco shells made out of Doritos chips.

The four former interns claim Doritos Locos Tacos was their idea, and they said they submitted a plan for Doritos tacos in 1995 as part of a contest.

The former interns submitted promotional materials, including the flavors cool ranch and nacho cheese -- which are now sold at Taco Bell restaurants.

Taco Bell denies the interns had anything to do with the Doritos Locos Tacos concept.
