Oreos are pretty great on their own, but a couple of expert chefs have teamed up with Oreo to find casual “hack” recipes to make the delicious cookies even better.

For their ongoing “Snack Hack” series, Oreo asked chefs Roy Choi, Michael Voltaggio, and Nguyen Tran to create Oreo-based recipes that are simple and creative. The resulting dishes are very tasty-looking too: Choi came up with a Golden Oreo cookie and panko-breaded chicken recipe, Tran made bread pudding and Voltaggio made nachos and Lemon Oreo shandies.

The wondrous things they do with Doritos will never cease. This time it’s Dorito Loaded which were spotted at a 7-Eleven in Washington, D.C. by Kevin Cobb. He bought the creation which looks to be a cheese triangle covered with Dorito breading and then fried.

Cobb told Yahoo “they tasted like Nacho Cheese Doritos dipped in queso.” He also noted that they were good enough to consider buying again.

7-Eleven says the product is in testing right now but won’t say if or when it’ll roll out in other areas.

It’s almost Super Bowl Sunday and that means parties with the tastiest, most delicious, incredibly bad for you treats. A perfect example is Doritostix which consist of homemade cheese sticks filled with pepper jack cheese and coated in Doritos. Instructables user Pat Sheldon explains her creation:

When combined together in your mouth, you basically get the sensation of crispy Doritos and creamy cheese with a kick. I guarantee it will be the first item grabbed at your Superbowl party, and will be gone in 10 min or less depending on how many hungry fans are there.

You can read the detailed instructions here and then whip up a batch for your friends. Just be sure to make enough for everyone.

There are all sorts of crazy Doritos flavors out there but this latest one might be the weirdest. It’s a new limited edition shrimp mayonnaise flavor that’s available through the middle of March. As you’ve probably guessed, you can only get them in Japan.

If ever there was a food mash-up worthy of a gamer it’s Mountain Dew flavored Cheetos. You won’t be surprised to know they’re being sold in Japan, but this is one that you can actually get shipped to the US and elsewhere through some specialty retailers. They’re not a true Cheeto since there’s no cheese, but more of a lemon-lime flavored corn snack. They sound both disgusting and amazing. I may have to buy a package.

Frito-Lay is debuting a new chocolate covered potato chip next week as an exclusive at Target stores. You can pick up a bag of this salty, sweet treat for $3.49 for a 5 ounce bag only through the holidays. There’s a chance they could be come a year-round product if they sell well enough, but for now, you’ll have to grab them before they’re gone!

Scientists at the Cologne Institute have found an excellent reason for you to pick up that giant tub of popcorn next time you’re at the movies. They’ve discovered that munching on food helps you resist the affects of advertising. According to researcher Sascha Topolinski:

“The mundane activity of eating popcorn made participants immune to the pervasive effects of advertising… This finding suggests that selling candy in cinemas actually undermines advertising effects, which contradicts present marketing strategies. In the future, when promoting a novel brand, advertising clients might consider trying to prevent candy being sold before the main movie.”

This means that not only can you munch on that popcorn, but all those overpriced treats are fair game. It also means advertisers aren’t technically getting the bang for the buck that they think they’re getting—but that’s their problem. I’m heading back to the concession stand for some Milk Duds.

We do get some great Doritos flavors here in the states, but we don’t get even close to the number of unique flavors that they get in Japan. The latest version we can’t have is Avocado Cheese. It’s a special limited edition that will only be around until February 28th.
