I'm just r.e.a.l.l.y lucky that Frito Lay hasn't pulled a Hostess and gone out of business. My world without Doritos would be a SAD life. However, I'm also lucky that they like to find new flavors to tease us with..
My bag arrived about a week ago, and the box has been calling to me. Upon opening the bag, the smell was smoky, kinda burnt bacon. Very blue corn chip, reminds me of the color of denim dryer lint. Coating is salty, but not messy, like the chile verde coating. Immediate taste is greasy-ish burnt* flavor, before the salt and MSG kick. After taste beefy-ish. No Alarm bells, not spicy at all. Flavor is completely masked when eaten with salsa (Pace Medium)
