Yesterday, as I was waltzing through Wawa on my break, I noticed a new bag of Doritos. Normally I don't eat Doritos, or a lot of junk food for that matter, but this bag in particular intrigued me. It was Doritos X-13D Flavor Experiment. The white panel read "This is the X-13D Flavor Experiment. Objective: Taste and name Doritos flavor X-13D." Not that I was at all interested in the prize of a years supply of Doritos, but I had to know. (anyone who knows me knows that "Having to know" is my downfall!) Part of me said "Don't buy these, its just a cheap marketing ploy to get you to buy them." But the other part said "Ooh new flavor Doritos! What if they are awesome! I have to know!" My curiosity got the better of me, and I bought them. Once in my car, I gleefully ripped open the bag, excited at my new purchase. I smelled the contents of the bag. Kind of reminded me of cocktail sauce. Now I was REALLY intrigued. What could they possibly taste like with a smell like that? So I grabbed a chip and bit into it.
Flavor? VOMIT! Seriously, these chips were so nasty. They tasted like old rotten fish. I was so disgusted I couldn't even finish the chip I bit into! How did they manage to capture the flavor of rotten fish? How is that even possible? I was so disgusted, I couldn't even bring myself to touch the bag again to throw them away!
So I research them a little bit on the internet. I had to know what other people were saying about this abomination to all snack food. Apparently most people think they taste like hamburgers, and a few people agree with me that they taste like fish. Talk about polar opposite flavors! How is that possible? Beef and fish are not even similar! Especially ROTTEN fish. So has anyone who might be reading this happen to try this awful concoction of flavor yet? What do you think, beef or fish?
