REVIEW: Spicy Nacho and Cool Ranch Jalapeno Doritos Dips


I’m certain by now you’ve all seen TikTok’s hottest new dance craze, the Dorito Dip.

What’s that? You haven’t? That’s in all probability as a result of I simply made it up.

Right here’s one thing you received’t consider I’m not making up – Frito Lay makes Doritos-flavored dips now.

Do you like Doritos however want they got here in a wetter and gloopier kind? Have you ever ever wished a chip to style like a Dorito, however inexplicably simply didn’t get Doritos? You then’re in luck as a result of new Spicy Nacho and Cool Ranch Jalapeno Doritos Dips are hitting cabinets nationwide.

I don’t know if I’ve ever truly dipped a Dorito, however you higher consider I wanna dip stuff into the essence of Dorito… in order that’s precisely what I did.

My dippers of the day have been Santitas Tortilla Chips (underrated chips that somebody as soon as informed me are actually repackaged unflavored Doritos), ridged potato chips, a mushy pretzel, and Hen McNuggets.

Beginning off, Cool Ranch Jalapeno was solely respectable, and I truly appreciated it extra for the addition of the jalapeno.

I didn’t essentially suppose they’d be capable to match absolutely the perfection of Cool Ranch Doritos taste, however I nonetheless wanted extra. It’s there, however the depth is dialed down a ton. Whereas the jalapeno offers it a pleasant crisp and spicy pepper taste, the Cool Ranch takes a again seat. This taste must be a dusty coating. It simply doesn’t work in addition to a bitter creamy base.

To be truthful, it nonetheless tasted fairly good with the Santitas and the mushy pretzel, nevertheless it’s in all probability not even higher than your run-of-the-mill ranch or onion-style dip.

As for Spicy Nacho, nicely, it simply doesn’t must exist. If I have been to rank Spicy Nacho on the Dip Scale™, I’d put it barely above the dip from Who Framed Roger Rabbit?

It’s no higher than a mid-tier queso or nacho cheese. High quality, however no matter. I needed to focus to get the distinct Nacho Cheese Dorito taste that basically solely popped on the end and was masked by the “spicy” of all of it. Push involves shove, you’ll comprehend it’s based mostly on Spicy Nacho Dorito, nevertheless it pales compared to the chip.

It’s not a nasty pretzel companion, nevertheless it simply didn’t improve any of the opposite stuff. Santitas labored positive sufficient with each, however plain potato chips have been a bust, and each McNugget dipping sauce works higher.

Dorito taste solely succeeds as a mud. I’d keep away from these until you’re having a giant unfold and seeking to choose up a few dips anyway. Simply get the Cool Ranch and go for a queso. Frito-Lay has a greater Tostitos-branded one proper down the aisle.

These don’t point out refrigeration after opening and are apparently shelf-stable for six months. Possibly I’m a wuss, however I discover that fairly off-putting, simply as I discovered the feel to be that of an off pudding. Wordplay.

These really feel like they have been dumped on cabinets with no fanfare or advertising and marketing, and perhaps for good motive. They’re an odd launch at an odd time of 12 months. They in all probability coulda executed okay in the summertime, however throughout Christmas? We’ll see how far the Doritos title takes them. I don’t suppose they’ll fly off cabinets, nevertheless it’s not too late to try to transfer some items with the soon-to-be viral Dorito Dip.
