      Great Doritos with a bit of a difference.

      DORITOS FLAMIN CHEESEBALL.


      There is no picture of this product so i will do my best to describe them for you, they come in a 40grams foil lined bag, which is obviously to keep these well i cant say crisps because they are really like a MexicanTortilla Chip.

      They come in Triangle shapes and each one has a coating of cheesey substance, they tell me on the packet that they use the best corn which is ground into a soft dough, then they are shaped some are triangle and some are triangles that has curled up a bit. They are toasted and then they are fried quickly, and i must admit having been a great fan of the Doritos range, i was expecting them to taste overpowerly HOT, but they didnt although they do have a bit of a kick they are not over hot so are just right in my opinion. They tasted cheesy but with the added bite little taste of hot tomato chilli flavour but as i have said not too HOT.

      They come in a 40grams Packet and you do get a generous amount inside the packet, they contain a spicy cheese flavour, sunflower oil, and milk protein maize, paprika flavour, white maize kernels, sugar, buttermilk powder, wheat flour, and other flavourings.

      The tasted really nice just like a cheesy dorito but with a kind of chilli paprika taste they were really nice, and i will be buying some more of these to have in a bowl when i do my little spread which i usually do on Boxing Day.

      Each 40gr serving, contains calories 200, sugar 1g, fat 11g, saturates 1g, and salt 0.6g.of an adults guideline daily amount.

      They were not fatty and had little lumps on them mostly like other Doritos i have tried, they were not smooth and they tasted just like the cheesy ones but with a really nice kick to them. I really thought that what with the extra taste you didnt need to buy a dip like i do when i usually eat tortilla chips, which i usually find to be a bit bland.

      I would recommend you try this new flavour, they will be great to have in one of my new serving bowls that i have recently brought for putting my snacks into for Christmas. The 40grams packet i purchased for the price of 55p, and they were well worth it, you can also buy these in the larger crab packs enough to share around for £1.00.

      Thanks for reading and rating my reviews.

        .

        I like to try new Food items and when I saw these on the Crisp shelf, and even better priced at £1 for the large share sized bag - I don't share them, they are all mine! I'm not greedy, but Hubby doesn't like these.

        Dorito's are the brand named version of Tortilla Chip Crisps. Perhaps not to everyone's liking as they are marketed as Crisps, but not strictly Crisp like.

        I was expecting the flavour to be a nice spicy Cheddar taste, but it wasn't exactly how I imagined them. More to that after.

        The bag design was alright. It was a black colour and it had lots of bright colours on the pack, along with some flame symbols. The Dorito branding and little logo stood out well.

        Upon opening the bag you get a nice Cheesy scent coming out. The Crisps are shaped in a triangle shape, and although most of them are flat or slightly curved, there are quite a few that are curled up a bit. THey are a medium orange colour and have little flecks of black going through them as well. The Crisps are pretty crunchy and Crispy, but they break up easy enough as well.

        Per 40g they have 200 calories, and quite a lot of fat, can't think how much offhand just now, but this type of Crisp normally does have a lot of fat in them.

        Now to the flavour When I had a few of these I could only taste a Cheese taste. Kind of like the other Cheese Dorito's but a little bit milder, but then I had some more and tasted a more spicy taste. Weather the spicyness builds up after eating a few, or that only some crisps had the spicy flavouring on them i'm not sure. The flavour was nice and although I find it hard to explain what the taste is like, it tastes a little like mild Jalepeno's with Cheese Like a Nacho topping I guess.

        Although not the most amazing flavour in the world for me, and I would probably reach for the Chill Heatwave or Tangy Cheese Dorito's before this flavour again, it was a nice enough change and a good buy for £1 for a 175g bag.

        A nice new Doritos flavour

        Well, here I am in my beautiful new flat. The location in central Edinburgh is perfect, the rooms are beautiful and my flatmates are fantastic, so I'm a very happy bunny. Despite one major missing payment problem, I am absolutely loving being here. Unfortunately, living in the flat does have the drawback of not having an internet connection yet, so as I write this, I am sitting alone in my room with very little to do and nobody to talk to. Even though I can't post any yet, I've decided to pass my time by review as many things as I can in order to pass the time.

        The first item on my 'To Review Tonight' list is a packet of Flamin' Cheeseball Doritos, which I bought from the newsagents next door about ten minutes ago. I am obsessed with Doritos, but despite having eyed up this new flavour on the shelves for the past few months, I hadn't gotten around to trying them until today. Before trying them, I couldn't really imagine how they could be much different to the Tangy Cheese flavour, and so was excited to give them a go.

        Doritos are essentially tortilla chips (or nachos) which have a flavoured coating. The most popular flavours are Original and Tangy Cheese, but you can also buy Chilli Heatwave and now Flamin' Cheeseball in small packets, and some other bizarre sounding offerings in big bags to share. Doritos are my favourite 'crisps', and in general would always choose them over traditional potato crisps.

        The first Dorito that I picked out of the pack tasted, to me anyway, exactly like Doritos Tangy Cheese. I was somewhat disappointed and confused, until after a few more bites I discovered why this flavour is different to the old one: it's spicy. Flamin' Cheeseball Doritos are, basically, Tangy Cheese Doritos with a spicy kick: that is, a strong faux cheese flavour which complements the savoury maize flavour nicely, with a hotness to make things more exciting. I would say that these Doritos have a very nice flavour, and based on the flavour alone I would definitely buy them again.

        This 40g pack cost me 55p from my local shop, and the bag contains 200 calories, 23 carbs and 10.5g of fat, so while they're not exactly healthy, they're not much worse than any other crisps. In any case, a little bit of what you fancy every now and again isn't going to do you much harm, but for your health and waist I wouldn't recommend eating these every day (though it's none of my business if you do!).

        In conclusion, if you've always thought that Tangy Cheese Doritos needed a bolt of spice, then you will love Flamin' Cheeseball. If you're not a fan of spicy snacks, cheesy snacks or Doritos in general, then clearly you're not going to fall in love with these, but otherwise you should enjoy them. Fortunately, these crisps are not too spicy, but if you have an aversion to spicy foods you may want to avoid these just in case. Since I love lightly spiced things and have a love for Tangy Cheese Doritos, this new flavour is right up my street, and is something that I would definitely buy again.

          Doritos new flavour!

          I love Doritos! If ever I see a new flavour I simply have to try them and this is one flavour I wasn't familiar with...until now!

          The Packaging....

          40g black foil bag. On the front I'm told they are 'New' Doritos Flaming Cheeseball Flavour Corn Chips and there is a picture of a couple of the Doritos's on there. Under that there is an at a glance nutritional information chart on there and the size is stated (as I've listed already). On the back of the bag three is a full nutritional chart on there, ingredients are listed, the best before date is stamped on, contact details for Walkers (the manufacturers of these crisps) is given, and finally there is a bar-code on there. Nice smart packaging this is and it's distinctive...


          The Crisps....

          Ok first mistake is these are not crisps! They've haven't ever ever seen a potato! These are made from Corn. They are triangle in shape and rough to the look and feel of them and orange in colour through flavouring. Under that flavouring the chips are actually a warm yellow colour and occasionally you will see a speck of black in them which I think is the corn.

          Flavour wise I really do like them. They're really packed with flavourings however somehow they manage under all that to still taste of corn! Quite incredible as they are really cheesy with a slight hotness (though not as much as I expected) of what I think is a slight hint of garlic and chilli. I do stress though I never found them hot (which may be a complaint from some people!) I just found them very moreish and tasty.

          I liked the crunch of these, they weren't messy to eat at all and were really nice and filled a gap in my tummy!

          Nutritional Information...

          Calories: 200
          Sugar: 1g
          Fat: 11g
          Saturates: 1g
          Salt: 0.6g

          Can be found in all good supermarkets and corner shops etc and other flavours are available of course!
