…Anyone tried Doritos: The Quest yet? I got a bag a week ago, tried it… a weird salty, sweet, lime flavor, with a distinct buttermilk taste. Really odd stuff.
Last year’s secret flavor was pretty obvious just from the ingredients list-- it was cheeseburger-- but this one’s list is bizarre. A few people who tried my bag called it Key Lime Pie. No one enjoyed the experience.
Well, I went to the flavor’s website-- you have to guess the flavor to gain access to various puzzles, as the whole thing is part of some interactive “adventure” contest. “KEYLIMEPIE” didn’t fit the blanks… but after the site gave me one of the vowels in position, it dawned on me.
I would associate KLP with some sweetness, but the bag I had was very different (in a bad way), with a more acidic taste to it. MD’s as good a guess as any, but I have a second bag at home I’m very disinclined to open because the last one was so nasty.
Both Revolution (wild berry flavoring and ginseng added to the MD citrus base flavor, for those who haven’t tried them) and Voltage (blue raspberry/ginseng) are good, though I prefer Voltage more-- reminds me of a carbonated Ice Blue Kool-Aid, the powdered drink mix of the gods.
Supernova (strawberry/melon/ginseng), on the other hand, is pretty bland. It doesn’t really taste like strawberry, and there’s just a little melon.
We got a display shipper of these on last night’s truck so we bought a bag out of curiosity. The unanimous opinion among us was that they taste like Trix. No kidding, it was like eating a bowl of Trix on which someone had spilled salt. I’ll be sticking to Cool Ranch or Nacho Cheese, thanks.
My son is always demanding new flavors of chips. I got some that were mixed berry and they were okay, but really too salty. I prefer real dried fruit.
The others with onion or lime or salsa flavors just made me long for plain chips and a choice of dips.
