Doritos Collisions - Hot Wings and Blue Cheese

There never seems to be a shortage of ideas for renewing Doritos. In my opinion, there is no need, as they are a delicious classic snack. Regardless, Collisions are a fabulous idea. All they did was combine two complementary flavors of chips in one bag. Simple enough, but oh so perfect. I tried the Hot Wings and Blue Cheese Collisions. Although Blue Cheese is not a traditional flavor of Dorito, I'm glad they didn't just get boring and put the Zesty Ranch in. I've always though Ranch with Hot Wings was just wrong. The best strategy is to eat a Hot Wing chip and follow it with a Blue Cheese cooler. It truly tastes like you've eaten the real thing. The only preference I might have is to combine the two flavors on the same chip for ease of snacking. The other downfall is that there are only two flavors right now- this and Zesty Taco with Chipotle Ranch. I look forward to more though!

I grabbed a bag of these at lunch yesterday on account of this post. I found the flavor to be too light: the wings tasted more like a generic chili-spicy Dorito and blue cheese more like marginally sharper version of cheesy ranch. When I went home, though, I found the bag had sat out and sun-warmed; the flavor was improved: the wings more like Tabasco than mere chili and distinct blue cheese-like undertone was more perceptible. I'd still prefer the flavor to be ramped up on these. But sun warmed with both kinds of chips eaten at once, there is a new taste experience here for lovers of traditional Buffalo wings and Doritos.

I think that they should put three flavors in a bag and call it a train wreck.

Zesty Taco and Chipotle Ranch Doritos are the BOMB! The combination is perfect -- spicy, savory, salty, and tangy.
