Doritos Flamin Hot Nacho Chips Are A Thing And Are Here To Stay—Is The Snack World Ready?

As any snack food munching, aficionado can probably tell you Flamin Hot Cheetos are the bomb—and have been since as far back as the late ’90s.  One of the first to pioneer the spicy snack food genre, Cheetos hit a home run with their then newest introduction to their massively popular snack offerings.

Fast forward to today, where it has been announced that the same spicy flavor will take on a whole new taste as Frito Lay will be offering a Flamin Hot Nacho Dorito flavor.  Those who crave and yearn for the spiciest flavors they can get now have a brand new choice, and they are ecstatic, to say the least.

According to the information provided from Frito Lay, the makers of Doritos, the newest flavor of Dorito Flamin Hot Nacho chips combine the heat of “flamin hot” with their original specialty nacho cheese flavor.  Upon first biting into the chip, you will recognize the nacho cheese flavor that Doritos are known for—however, you will then in the next instance feel the heat as it kicks in and ramps up your taste buds.

Some fans of the Cheetos Flamin Hot version state that because the Doritos have included their signature nacho cheese flavoring, the Doritos Flamin Hot Nacho chip does not even begin to compare when it comes to the heat factor.  However, Frito Lay assures snack fans that the spices are there nonetheless.  Also, like the Cheetos version, the Doritos will more than coat your fingers with delectable, lickable spicy nacho dust.


If just hearing about the chips have you craving them not to worry, the newest flavor is already available on the shelves of grocery and convenience stores everywhere.  Unlike other flavors that have come and gone, Frito Lay has announced that the Doritos Flamin Hot Nacho chips are here to stay as they are a permanent offering from their lineup.
