Doritos are pretty popular in Japan, as well as chips in general – there doesn’t seem to be any mistake in thinking that a lot of food in this country is designed to go with beer. I’m pretty much happy to support this line of thought.
Most of the cornchip flavours are the usual cheese or ‘taco’, so when I saw the bright blue packet, I grabbed it up and ran for the cashier (as well as grabbing a bottle of Peach Fanta).
The chips weren’t bad – very coconuty with a bit of a curry aftertaste and burn. They weren’t quite as great as I was expecting with a kinda light, subtle flavour but they’re certainly not bad – they’d be pretty good with a stronger curry-flavoured dip or whatever.
Sadly, they’re a limited edition so they were gone as soon as they arrived.
Availability: Blink and they’re gone.
