Doritos Locos Taco's Inventor Dies Without Ever Getting A Dime!

| Filed under: Sad SadFoodFast FoodCancer

Man behind the Doritos Locos Tacos movement dies without seeing a dime for his idea!

Todd Mills was a 41-year-old father of two who had the amazing idea to combine Doritos and Taco Bell tacos.

After a funny Facebook campaign to create the product turned somewhat serious, TB took the idea and ran with it!!

Luckily, Mills was invited to go to Taco Bell headquarters in California where he was one of the first to taste the amazing product, but sadly, he was hit with cancer, and hit hard. He was forced to stop work and had two brain surgeries and a lung surgery.

When his friends and family set up a donations page for him, Taco Bell donated $1,000 for his medical bills.

Yes, you read that right, only a thousand bucks for helping them create one of the most ingenious fast food ideas in modern times. In fact, he never saw a dime, even though Dorito tacos made over a BILLION dollars in sales!

Todd, sadly, succumbed to his cancer and passed away.

Taco Bell made a statement:

"We are honored to have had his support through the Doritos for Taco Shells Movement on Facebook, and we admire his strength and optimism during his recent battle. Our thoughts and sympathies are with Todd's family during this time."

Maybe they can honor his memory by sending his family a big fat check.

That'd be a nice gesture in honor of the man who popularized the greatest taco invention ever.

May he rest in peace.

    faaaaack it boycott those foockers! 1000$ doesnt pay for $hit worth of cancer treatment….by the pic it looks like he has a little girl…maybe taco crap should set up a trust fund for the girl so she can get a proper education, become a lawyer and sue those a$4holes.

    Why should Taco Bell pay? Why not Doritos? His cancerous tumors might have been caused from eating GMO corn, b-t-w. JUNK FOOD CAN KILL YOU!

    Todd actually has 2 daughters. He was a wonderful man and will be greatly missed. His wife is a teacher and now has been left with all of the medical bills. Taco Bell and Frito Lay should help her and his girls out!
