Salty Snacks

doritos cheese ball bites

I’m convinced Amy at Oh Bite It is a sorcerer. She comes up with wild but delicious sounding recipes and churns them out like crazy. Her latest invention revolves around nacho cheese Doritos so you know it’s a winner. She made balls from cream cheese, shredded cheese, and salsa and covered them in crushed Doritos. Easy, colorful, and magical. Making these for your holiday gathering might make you a hero.

Oh, Pizza Hut, we already loved you and now this? They’ve introduced a crust that is covered with Doritos. They’ve also stuffed that crust with mozzarella cheese. You can only get this awesome concoction in Australia, unless the Pizza Hut people take pity on us and bring it to the US. It’s definitely more exciting that some of the new stuff on their menu.

Pretty please, Pizza Hut, can we have Doritos pizza crust?

truck

The Buffalo, New York area got dumped on by Mother Nature with 6-feet of snow that pretty much brought life to a standstill. There are abandoned cars and trucks all over the place, including one Doritos truck that some residents decided was an open invitation. They broke into the truck and helped themselves to a snack. We love Doritos, too, but stealing them in a snowstorm?

If you’re settling down and planning to watch a Sailor Moon marathon, then only one snack will do: Sailor Moon tortilla chips. The magical snacks are part of a partnership with Japanese snack food company Koikeya, and the Sailor Moon gang will begin appearing on bags of chips as of November 21. The avocado cream cheese, bagna cauda, and balsamico grilled pork flavored chips will feature Sailors Moon, Mercury, Mars, Jupiter, and Venus as well as Tuxedo Mask.

mountain dew dewitos

Here’s something I never thought I’d type: Reddit user joes_nipples has tasted Mountain Dew Dewitos and has lived to tell the tale.

Yes, friends, Mountain Dew has taken the work out of chewing your Doritos and saved you the trouble of orange dusted fingers by creating this 2 in one taste sensation.

Here’s what I want to know…there are multiple flavors of both Mountain Dew and Doritos. So, what’s next? Mountain Dew Baja Ranch?

Oh and, before you tell yourself this isn’t real, a Pepsi spokesman has confirmed. From The Verge:

We are always testing out new flavors of Mountain Dew, and giving our fans a voice in helping decide on the next new product has always been important to us. We opened up the DEW flavor vault and gave students a chance to try this Doritos-inspired flavor as part of a small program at colleges and universities.

I think I’m gonna barf.

christmas doritos

Brands seem to be all about capitalizing on the holidays these days, and Frito-Lay is on point. Maybe. They’re offering special Christmas tree Doritos in Japan from late November to February. The tortilla chips are dyed green and shaped like trees, which is actually festive. It’s the flavor of the Doritos that’s bizarre. They taste like soup! The Rock ‘n’ White Doritos have a flavor of corn cream stew. Is it weird that I want to try them?

Retailers are cooking up different kinds of promotions and deals to reel in customers for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. For example, Target’s Canadian stores are offering some sort of poorly worded Dorito’s tie-in.

A Reddit user in Canada posted the above screen grab of an advertisement he saw for the newest CoD game. Now, the ad seems to imply that if you buy the game, you also get two free bags of Doritos. But if you look closely, you’ll see that the ad states that customers can get “2 select Doritos chips” when they buy the game. So… does that mean they’ll only get two individually wrapped Doritos chips? Ok, we know that’s not going to be the case, but I do kind of want to see what the packaging would like for one lonely Doritos chip. It would probably be adorable.

On that note, they should have at least thrown in a case of Mountain Dew to sweeten the deal.

cheetos bagels

Kids have the craziest ideas when it comes to food. The Buffalo News reports that a ten-year-old girl was hanging around the BreadHive bakery and eating Flamin’ Hot Cheetos, and she suggested putting the Cheetos on top of bagels. BreadHive’s Allison Ewing figured it was worth trying so they crushed a bag of the Cheetos, dipped bagels in them, and voila! Flamin’ Hot Cheetos bagels. I’d definitely try one.

I hope someone runs with the idea of junk food on bagels because I think Doritos bagels could be delicious.

float

We all know the frustration of getting a giant bag of chips only to open it and find it mostly full of air. It’s become enough of a frustration in South Korea that people are even complaining online about “nitrogen snacks” in reference to all that air. College students Sung Taek Chang, Sung Ho Yoo, and Hyun Soo Park decided to highlight the problem by turning the air-filled bags into rafts and floats.

They’ve messed around with some prototypes but have one in the works that will be built from 180 bags so it’s big enough to hold two people. They’re even planning to use it to sail across the Han River. Once they’re done, assuming they don’t sink, they’ll either be eating the chips or donating them to a charity.

1eef_ghost_pepper_cheddar_popcorn

If you fear spicy foods, then this bag of Ghost Pepper Cheddar Popcorn is most definitely not for you. Just FYI, the Ghost Pepper (Bhut Jolokia) is one of the hottest peppers in the world. It’s overall heat rating is around 850,000-1,400,000 SHU, and just for some proper context, a jalapeño pepper has a heat rating of round 3500 SHU. So yeah, this cheesy-but-spicy popcorn is only for folks with tastebuds that can handle extreme, borderline-insane spiciness.
