Top 5 Doritos Flavors
Doritos chips are some of the most popular chips found in stores. Whether you are just digging into a bag for a snack or having some as a side dish with lunch or dinner, it is always good to have a bag close by. Doritos has come up with a lot of flavors and keeps making different flavors that have kept people returning for more. So here are the Top 5 Doritos Flavors that have kept people coming back!
#5 – Sour Cream and Onion
Originally from the 1970s, Doritos offered up a flavor of sour cream and onion. The flavor was more traditional to regular potato chips instead of nachos and didn’t last long. They were originally phased out by the early 80s but have been brought back from time to time as a “throwback” flavor for fans who needed something different.
#4 – Habanero
Released in 2010 as part of their “degree burn” line up, Habanero was the “third-degree burn” and were HOT. These chips were dark red and spicier then their normal chips to the point where you had to have something to wash out your mouth if you planned on eating anything else for a while.
#3 – X-13D
These were kind of weird ones back in 2007. Doritos introduced the black mysterious bags without any kind of announcement of what flavor they were. It was marketed as an “experimental” flavor and that is all they said. A little snooping on the ingredient list found they had a lot of mustard dust flavoring in them along with a few other ingredients to closely match a cheeseburger. They were good in a different style than the usual nacho cheese flavors and were a good chip to have for the little while they were available.
#2 – Cool Ranch
Something must be said for the “other” flavor of Doritos chips introduced in 1986. Although it has been the brand’s “B” flavor since those days, they have made them for a long time so someone must be eating a lot of them. Not as strongly flavored as many of the others the company has released, these chips go great with nacho-style toppings you can add yourself like nacho cheese or salsa and pop in a microwave for a few minutes for a tasty snack.
#1 – Nacho Cheese
The basic flavor of Dorito chips has been around since the 1960s as an alternative to their original “plain” flavor. Obviously, the idea caught on as it has outlasted the “plain” chips by a number of years. Not so strong that it will pucker your lips but still enough flavor to give you a little nacho taste in your mouth. A good flavoring to allow you to personalize but it is perfectly fine to go as they are. If nothing else, you can grab a bag of these for a cheap snack.
