Doritos Collisions: Zesty Taco and Chipotle Ranch


Without culinary pioneers we would never have learned to mix peanut butter with chocolate, coffee with ice, or French fries and milkshakes. On the plus side, we wouldn’t have to choke down Frito-Lay’s Doritos Collisions. In theory, Zesty Taco and Chipotle Ranch sound like natural companions, but the truth is hard to stomach. The gimmick is to combine two flavors into one bag so that you can control the flavor combination. However, the inevitable mixture of Doritos dust in the bag makes the chips indistinguishable most of the time. This works fine for the Chipotle Ranch chips, which are void of the smoky heat their name promises, but the Zesty Taco chips end up tasting like Taco Bell after a night of heavy drinking and smoking. Not so much a collision as a nine-car pileup for your taste buds.
