Snack #81 - Doritos Late Night Last Call Jalapeno Poppers
A friend of mine was so kind as to pick these up thinking of me. I had never seen the "late night" variety of Doritos and after eating a few was convinced he had found a bag that had been lying around since 1980. I know something can't "taste" stale, but these really did. They were fresh and crunchy, but something about them just tasted old. Basically they tasted like old spicy Doritos, but worse. The good people at Doritos somehow managed to make their cheese flavor taste more fake. And to this they added a little heat - the jalapeno part, I suppose. Since jalapeno poppers are just deep fried cheese-stuffed jalapenos, I guess they got the flavor right. It was just a really yucky rendition of the bar staple.
Also, sorry for the lack of picture. They look like regular Doritos.
Rating on the Spice-O-Meter: 3/10
Bottom Line: don't eat these, even late night
