Taco Bell rewarded its social media fans and followers with a heads-up that they could get their hands on the new Cool Ranch Doritos Locos tacos a day early.

The restaurant announced on Twitter and Facebook on Tuesday night that the tacos, which feature a cool-ranch-flavored Doritos shell, would be available in stores today – a full day ahead of the announced release date.

An employee at the Taco Bell at 4647 W. Kennedy Blvd. confirmed that they were selling the new tacos this afternoon, after some apparent confusion. The employee said that the restaurant turned away some customers looking for the new tacos, but “got clearance” to start selling them later in the day.

The new taco is a follow-up to the wildly successful Doritos Locos Tacos that the company started selling in 2012. Taco Bell said those tacos, featuring a nacho cheese Doritos shell, were its most successful product launch ever, and said it has sold more than 250 million of them in a year.
