Taco man dies after battle with cancer
The American behind Taco Bell’s very lucrative Doritos Locos Tacos meal died last week after a battle with brain cancer. According to his wife Ginger, Todd Mills, 41, from Little Rock, Arkansas, would often eat taco salads made with Doritos and wrote a letter to Frito-Lay, the makers of Doritos, in 2009 pitching the idea of using the spicy chips as taco shells. The company wasn’t interested at first but later changed its mind when Mills’ Facebook page, the Taco Shells Made from Doritos Movement, received huge public support. The rest is now history, with the snack proving hugely successful — 600 million units have been sold to date, earning Taco Bell billions in sales. Yet the father-of-two, who came up with the idea, never made a penny from his idea. Movie fans have barely had time to catch their collective breath after the announcement that Ben Affleck would play the Dark Knight in Batman Vs Superman, when it was announced last week that Gal Gadot has been cast as Wonder Woman in the same film. The Israeli actress and model is best known for her role as Gisele in the fourth, fifth and sixth Fast and the Furious films. Gadot, 28, will play Diana Prince, who has super strength, speed and agility and flies an invisible plane, in Zak Snyder’s Man of Steel sequel — which also stars Henry Cavill as Superman — due out in 2015.
