My Review of the New Dorito

Christians like to claim that there is a “God-shaped hole” in all of us. But as anyone who knows me knows, all I have is a triangular shaped hole which can only be filled by Doritos. So, it is an important occasion each time they release a new flavor. Last night for the first time, I tried the new “taco flavor”. Basically, you can tell from the package it’s straight up “bland” version because there is someone out there who wants to know what Doritos would taste like without any flavors, including cheese. So, they made a straight taco shell flavor. And it basically tastes like what you would get if you ground up a Taco Bell meat and cheese hard taco into the finest of powders which you could barely taste and then sprinkled it atop a tasteless tortilla chip. They should have just brought back the tasty Taco Bell chip they had out a while back.

    The new taco flavor Dorito is actually the old recipe from when Doritos first launched back in the 60′s. Hence the retro style packaging.

    I would have preferred had they not re-introduced it because it made me feel bad about how it must have been to live back when such a foul tasting thing was the only available Dorito flavor.

    Actually I grew up on Taco flavor Doritos – this was before Nacho Cheese, if you can believe that. I tried them again recently, and yes, they’re not so good. Oh well, another childhood memory down the drain.

    Unfortunately they discontinued my favorite flavor, Black Pepper Jack (or whatever it was called). Bring it back!
