A new product has made it's way onto shelves and into the hearts of many Doritos fans, though it has left me feeling a bit indifferent.
The Collision combines two flavors in one bag, as if one flavor accidentally ran a red light or vered into oncoming flavors. But Doritos stepped it up a notch by creating brand new flavors that are complementary to one another. The two flavors on shelves as of now are; Hot Wings & Blue Cheese and Zesty Taco & Chipotle Ranch. I have not had the Zesty Taco & Chipotle Ranch, but I have had Hot Wings & Blue Cheese and it left me a little satisfied but mostly frustrated.
Being a huge fan of Blue Cheese I knew that I would enjoy the new bag. Blue Cheese is perfect for Hot Wings, its like peanut butter and jelly, peas and carrots, nothing goes better together. But what about Blue Cheese & Blue Cheese?
After a few handfuls I began sifting through the Hot Wings and going directly for the Blue Cheese Doritos. I want a bag of Blue Cheese Doritos with no Hot Wings, but unfortunatly that is impossible since they are only available in the Collision bags. Doritos gave me a gift and then gave me a chore. I would like to see Blue Cheese Doritos in bag all to itself, but in the mean time I am just going to have to find somebody who feels the way I do, but about Hot Wings, and share bag.
I would like to think of myself as a food authority or a connoisseur, but really I am just a guy who enjoys food and most of all, writing about food. I was born and raised in Columbus, Ohio and recently moved to Lake Leelanua, Mich. During the summers, I cook at a restaurant in historic Fishtown, Mich. where I became a foodie. One time I prepared a medium cheddar burger for Iron Chef Mario Batali, and he definitely shook my hand and told me how great it was. I figure maybe he was just being kind, but regardless, somebody enjoyed my food and a complement to the chef is the highest reward of cooking. So just like Mario enjoyed my burger, I hope my readers will derive just as much enjoyment out of reading my blog.
