Yes…you read that correctly.
Two of your favorite snacks have come together to form a winning combination.
According to a few snack experts on social media in the land “down under,” Mountain Dew flavored Doritos have arrived and are taking the world by storm.
Especially popular with the gaming and e-sports community, many people have loved the combo of sweet, tangy Mountain Dew and cheesy (or ranch) Doritos for years. Few have thought to combine the two to create the perfect snack.
The new chip flavor doesn’t sound half bad – the crunchy, salty deliciousness of a Dorito combined with the crisp, lemon-lime flavor of Mountain Dew.
Many supermarkets in the United States carry tortilla chips with a hint of lime, and these Doritos likely have a similar flavor – perhaps with a bit more of a punch.
Aussies are loving every bite of Mountain Dew Doritos, and it’s likely that U.S. citizens will feel the same way when (and if) these little bites of heaven arrive stateside.
Curious about the opposite combination – Doritos-flavored Mountain Dew? Believe it or not, Pepsi (which owns Mountain Dew) actually released two lines of exactly that – one in 2008 and one in 2014.
The flavor experiment was short-lived, and the item was mostly released on college campuses.
Mountain Dew Doritos are only available for a limited time, and there’s no word yet on when they’ll make it to the U.S., but we can all hope they do!
