Doritos has done it again! Delivered a surprise box of tortilla chips goodies to my door. So exciting!
The product is Heatwave BBQ & Chili Tortilla Chips which are available for a limited time.
“… a bold snacking experience that creates an unexpected flavour transformation with two distinct experiences in one chip. At first you taste the great flavour of BBQ then as you crunch the chip, an explosion of chili is released flooding your mouth with a delicious wave of heat. Are you bold enough to try them?”
Bold enough? Me? The spice wimp? Of course!!!
You can always count on Doritos to heavily season their tortilla chips although if they are that spicy… That is kind of nerve wracking!
The Taste Test
Do they start off a sweet barbecue before transforming into some serious heat? Abso-freaking-lutely! That is EXACTLY what happens! Not just to me but to Reg as well. The only difference between our experiences is I was left with an unpleasant aftertaste and he wasn’t.
Personally I found these too hot and kind of wished they just kept their barbecue-y flavour but if you can handle the heat, #theheatwillcome, I can promise you that. Even Reg found them quite hot after a while but please note, it is a slow burn so tread slowly and enjoy them as long as you can before you have to put them down. I lasted around 7 chips and then I could not take anymore.
This product is exactly as advertised. I just wish I did not experience that bitter aftertaste after I finished eating with my mouth on fire. As a result, I give this product four out of five wooden spoons.
