    hi fuzzy. i saw online today a post about someone who took doritos and crunched them up small and put them in a pepper grinder. that way they could grind dorito flavor on whatever they wanted.

    Dorito-flavored Mountain Dew. Too far?

    To me, it just makes perfect sense, when you take into account the relationships involved and branding implications: Doritos and Mountain Dew are two of Pepsi's largest selling brands. But how much so is the average purchaser of each aware of the other product?

    I would speculate that we will see even more of this in the future, pending the outcome of Papa-John's foray into gimmicks like Frito-Pizza (Perhaps to atone for it's more recent slight of the stoner-community?)

    Pepsi also has the controlling interest in all US distribution for Stolichnaya. Not the best vodka; but, for the type of product that's marketed all around different or unique pairings, flavor profiles that would otherwise seem sort of strange or novelty-based (e.g. baked potato, peanut-butter & jelly, buttered-popcorn, etc..) can actually become legitimate selling points. Re-ignite interest in what's typically an impulse purchase.

    fuzzy, i know you are a loyal doritos fan...but have you ever tried the store brand of a nacho chip? was it close?

    i have tried the aldi version of nacho chips. too much nacho flavor dust, but i do enjoy they are a bit thinner than regular doritos tend to be.

    any off brand faves?

    I've been sampling the Kroger brand tortilla chips like nacho cheese, but the cheese powder was a little thin and not as flavorful.

    Don't know if anyone has seen the Doritos Roulette. Its a bag of standard nacho cheese with a couple HOT chips added. I'd rather have a full bag of the HOT chips. :doh:

    Yep, I found more Doritos... and these are bar-be-que. And I swear I've had this flavor before. There is heat, not kick. It's a back of the throat buzz that makes you want to have a beverage handy.

    There are my snacks while I'm smoking a pork loin with pecan and cherry. :)

    These are a thing. After sampling my bag, they seem to be milder than regular Flamin' Hot. Spicy, yes, almost tangy. Same orange stained fingers.

    Still addicted to Tapatio Doritos. Frito Lay seems to have decided that the new Blaze flavor (which I cannot stand, it's just.. wrong..) will be replacing Tapatio in some locations. I may have started hoarding.
