Taste Test: Doritos Late Night Tacos at Midnight

In the interest of living a healthier lifestyle, I've been trying to cut out my habit of late-night snacking. Unfortunately, it hasn't gone so well, as that's my favorite time of the day to snack. And the fact that Doritos sent me a bag of special-edition Late Night Tacos at Midnight? That doesn't make it any easier, either.

These chips are intense: each triangular bite is densely covered in a blizzard of burnt orange powder and flecked with black spices. Upon first trying them, I wasn't too crazy about their seemingly artificial taste. They had a flavor that I couldn't pin down — but by the 15th chip or so, I'd figured it out. To find out what they taste like, keep reading.

You know that premade taco seasoning mix that you stir into ground beef for ultrafast tacos? These chips taste exactly like that. And contrary to my initial statement, the next day, for some inexplicable reason, I couldn't stop reaching for them. "When they first hit your mouth, they taste artificial, but the aftertaste leaves you wanting more," Party commented when she tried them.

Although the MSG in them made me incredibly thirsty, I couldn't help but agree: they wouldn't be bad with pico de gallo, guacamole, or a creamy salsa dip. The conclusion? If you're too drunk to drive to Taco Bell at 2 a.m., these chips will definitely hit the spot! Have you spotted them at the supermarket? Do they sound like something you'd eat when you're drunk?
