New Snack Find

I am a Tivo user. Yes, its true. I don't usually know what movies are coming out, I haven't seen that funny commercial people are talking about around the water cooler and I even tend to keep my head buried when it comes to the terrible news that fills the channels. So last weekend when we were in a little produce market which is mainly filled with various South American flavors and ingrediants, I was shocked and excited when I saw these new Doritos flavors (YES, I too can't believe I'm writing about Doritos!)

Doritos Collisons is what I saw. Hot Wings and Blue Cheese flavored chips in one bag, and Zesty Taco and Chipotle Ranch chips mixed up together in another.

Mostly, I was fascinated by the idea of Blue Cheese flavored chips. Me loves the feet cheese and I'm a fan of hot wings, so I picked up a 99cent snack bag along with our odd mix of veggies that we got mostly because Eric wanted to plant them (ginger, shallots, and various yams and sweet potatoes).

We were hungry, and even though Eric was disgusted that we had been shopping at Costco and then handling various foods in the produce market, and here we were digging our hands into this bag of chips and happily licking our fingers (yes I lick my fingers like a kid still and no one got sick), we were totally analyzing every bite.

The Hot Wing chips... eh, they tasted like Doritos with a tiny bit more heat, and the Blue Cheese chips tasted kinda like Blue Cheese dressing, but I found I had to make a kind of smacking noise and had to suck in air like you see wine tasters do, in order to really taste it.

All in all, it was a fun little treat.

Who'd a thunk... BLUE CHEESE flavored chips? We've come a long way from putting a little salt on a thinly sliced and fried potato!

Kettle Chips has something kinda blueish as well. Not quite as blue cheesy as I would like.

I've never seen these doritos, though.

A little off topic, but tivo related. I love my tivo but do you ever find yourself in the car, listening to the radio, and you don't completely catch what the guy said so you try to rewind it tivo-style? And then realize you can't. I do that all the time.

A new yummy snack! Yeah!

yea, rewind in the car would ROCK!!

I'm laughing, picturing you sucking in air to get the full flavor of the chips. You nut!

Cool Idea, in the non American shops there are the coolest products. I have seen Fanta's soda drinks in the most unusual flavors that are not a regular product here in the US.

That is an interesting idea, for sure. Sadly, neither of those flavors would do it for me.

Wow! What a novel idea! When you go to a pub and have wings, they always serve them with carrot and celery sticks...and blue cheese dipping sauce. I guess hot wings and blue cheese flavoured Doritos just makes sense! I wonder how long it will take for us to get them here in Canada? LOL!
