We will keep this as simple as Doritos have with their bag design. Each bag is flavor color coded. There is a large logo. There are a couple of Chips on the front. That is it. It looks modern, but is as uninspiring as any design on the market. This is quite amazing considering how many of these bags sell each and every day.
For some reason these Chips had a crispier and snappier initial couple of crunches than other Doritos we have tested. This is obviously a positive. The crunch also sustained well to the end. There was a thick, firm and robust munch that saw each Chip’s life dwindle in just the right crunch manner.
Doritos have a fairly uniform size and shape about them. The triangles have curved corners and the oil boils were present as always. The thickly cut Chips were not the standard yellow though. Oh no. They looked dangerous and bad. There was a thick orange red coating that begged the question – how hot is the Chilli Heatwave?
A Nose Plunge Test revealed a direct and to the point; hint of spicy. Unfortunately, the taste was not what we hoped for. There was that hint of spice, but it was not nearly describable as a heatwave. Instead, the overwhelming flavour was syrupy and sweet, with a light touch of Chilli.
