There’s something special about taking a road trip and stopping for a snack halfway. Usually, this snack ends end up being chips and a soda, and more often than not, I’m reaching for Doritos and Mountain Dew.
Look, that’s not exactly the healthiest choice, but who wants health food when you’ve been driving for three hours? No one, that’s who! And Mountain Dew + Doritos = the perfect combination of sweet and salty. PepsiCo gets that, which is why they’re releasing Mountain Dew-flavored Doritos.
The Drink + Snack Combo of Our Dreams
It’s true! You can now buy Dew-ritos. Pepsi has combined two of our favorite things into one crunchy snack. Is it a little strange? Sure. But Doritos has had some wacky flavors before, like wasabi mayo, clam chowder and cheeseburger flavors, among others.
Like all the most unusual flavors, Mountain Dew-flavored Doritos are only available outside the United States, at least for the moment. You can buy them in Australia, of all places. We hope they eventually show up in the US, though.
Has This Been a Thing Before?
We’re not ashamed to admit we’d snack on the Mountain Dew Doritos, even if taste test results have been a little mixed. It’s said they have a citrus flavor, which sounds interesting to say the least. They’re at least worth a try, right?
This isn’t the first time these chips have existed, either. Here’s a quick Doritos history lesson: Back in 2008, Doritos staged a marketing campaign called the Doritos Quest. Fans had to guess a “mystery flavor” of Doritos called Quest. That mystery flavor was Mountain Dew. Now, the citrus-y chip flavor is back, without all the secrecy!
Next: Mountain Dew fans should know there’s a new flavor of soda, too.
