Doritos Secretly Launches New Chip Flavor

Go on a Quest to Discover the New Doritos Flavor

Doritos recently announced a new flavor called The Quest, which is sold in a black package with the words "Guessing the Flavor Is Just the Beginning . . ." in bright green letters. As someone who's always up for a challenge, I decided to play the game. The chips look more like Cool Ranch Doritos than Nacho Cheese — and by that I mean they're not neon orange. In fact, they're more like yellow Fritos corn chips, but with a slightly green hue. The flavor was a bit of a mystery to me; they've definitely got more than a hint of lime and are slightly sweet. Our initial guess was Mango Chile Lime. However when I went to the website, I discovered it was incorrect.

The Doritos Quest website appears to be one long game. Sort of a fun marketing strategy if you think about it: Give customers an interesting new flavor and have them guess it. Once they guess it, they'll start down a larger quest that could win them $100,000. Pretty gimmicky, but you can't blame them for trying something new, can you?

What you can blame them for is creating a ridiculous chip flavor. Once you find out what it is, you'll probably end up liking them less. They're worth trying once, just for the novelty of it, but I won't be adding them to my roster.

If you've had them and absolutely can't figure it out — or if you're just curious and have to know — then I'll ruin the surprise when you


You ready for this one? The new flavor is Mountain Dew.

That's right. Mountain Dew-flavored Doritos, and they can be yours for 99 cents a bag.

So tell me, have you tried them? What do you think?

All that is is Sour cream and onion and cheddar cheese, with a slash of ranch.

I tried these NASTY doritos the other day and lemme tell you that I could not get the taste out of my mouth for a good while. I assumed that these Doritos would be something good and to me they tasted like Trix cereal with a hint of lime. DONT BUY THESE DORITOS, THEY ARE NASTY AS HELL!! I feel like writing a letter demanding my money back! NASTY is all that I can say!

i saw the quest bag in a convenience store the other day and bought them. tasted one chip and thought it was disgusting, so i've had the bag for a few days. my first thought was a lime tortilla chip, like those tostitos. i never would have guessed mountain dew. how gross.

Chemical crap on even more chemical crap? And paying the chemical crap corporation to get the chemical crap to you with our gas prices? I don't get it.

I love the Salsa Verde flavor. Mango Chili Lime sounded really good, but when I read they're mountain dew I got all sad. That sounds foul.

The Sweet and Spicy Chili Doritos are THE BEST flavor so far. I like Mountain Dew and I like Doritos, but I don't know that I'd want the two together. Might try them, though...

thedingo, I can TOTALLY tell the difference between the different doritos flavors. But they've really gone off the rails of late. Taco? Buffalo Ranch? (shudder!)

I LOVE Blazing Buffalo Ranch Dorito's... and I am curious if these new chips are a citrus based taste. I still prefer plain Dorito's for dips too.

First off... eww. Second, they're DORITOS!!! ALL Dorito's taste exactly the same, I don't know ANYONE who has even been able to tell the difference between nacho, spicy nacho, cool ranch, or any of their other flavors. Third: I'm all about Pringles... tee hee

This sounds like a ridiculous marketing gimmick and a horrible idea. But then again I hate chips and mountain dew so I may be a little biased!

I dont eat the monstrosities, but it figures that they would have a mountain freaking dew flavored.

i used to have entire meals in college made of just mt. dew and doritoes. two great tastes that taste great together, certainly, but in the same chip? i'm not so sure i can get behind that.

These chips have always grossed me out.

Ew. I love Mountain Dew, but on a chip? Just, ew.

I don't know katiedid0985 - the Sweet and Spicy Chili ones kind of taste like doritos dusted with Funyuns dust. Stoner food, but not actual food.
