I am buying food items at the moment for my Christmas parties and entertaining at my home for my family and friends. I bought these Doritos to stock ready and in time for the season. I have bought these lots of times and I spotted them on special offer too and saved a little money. They come in a plastic bag with the name clearly on the front and so can be easily spotted on a shelf. Once opening the packet the smell is really pleasant a chilli smell which is quite pleasant and strong. They are like crisps and triangular shape, some of them are curly kind of shape. Like the crisps are curled over. Kind of hard to describe but they are crunchy and also crispy. They do have a harder texture than crisps have so if you suffer with sore gums I would bare this in mind because my mum suffers with sore gums and she finds these make her gums sore when she has tried to eat them. They are really nice to dip into a salsa dip and they taste delicious when dipped into the sauce and the 2 foods work really well together. They taste also delicious dipped into any sauce and even homemade sauces and mayo based sauces. They taste delicious whichever way you may like to eat them in my opinion. They are ideal for parties and to place inside a dish so the guests can eat them dipped in sauces or eaten alone. My guests like these when they eat food when I have parties at my home and entertain. They are also idea to place in a dish for nibbles after holding a dinner party and a good while later after eating the meal and for when they may become peckish a good while later while having drinks during the evening. They have a nice chilli taste and are quite a tangy taste but the chilli doesn't blow your head off like you may imagine. It is a strong chilli taste but a pleasant one and extremely tasty. These are full of flavour and I think they have the correct amount of chilli flavour for my taste buds. They certainly don't have a bland taste and are packed with flavour, nothing bland about this product that's for sure. Per 100g they contain 495 calories and 25.3g of fat so they are high in calories if you are on a diet plan but for a few of them they would be fine to eat for a little treat but if you ate a lot of them they would be quite a lot of calories from your daily allowance so it is wise to eat them with care and not to over indulge if possible. I will say they are addictive though so it is best to eat them and think before you actually begin to eat more than you intend to eat if on a diet plan but a little treat won't hurt you and a few will be fine for your plan in my opinion. If you like the taste of chill flavour I think you will like this product and also I find they are quite filling to eat in between meal times and a nice food to eat for a little snack. I also think they are a food to share and the bag size I bought is a large bag and they are also available in smaller bags. I think the larger bag is suitable to buy for parties and for sharing with your loved ones while maybe watching the television and having a relaxing evening maybe while watching a movie or your favourite programme etc. For the larger bag which I bought of 225g I paid just over a pound on special offer and it was half the usual price so a bargain price. I think it is super value for this price and well worth the money in my opinion. The quality is really good too. If you are looking for a nice tasty snack and you love the taste of chilli I think you would love the taste of this product and I don't think you would be disappointed at all with the taste. I highly do recommend this product. I will keep on buying it in the future. I give this one 5 stars. Thank you for reading my review and I hope it has been of some help.
These crisps are currently one of my favourite snacks-being very tasty and versatile to have in the cupboard. Although defined as crisps some may describe them as nachos, to try and explain Doritos are triangular flavoured corn chips. These chilli heatwave ones are the tastiest from the 3-the other 2 being cool original and cheese. The product-widely available and instantly recognisable on the shelf in a bright red packet in various sizes including larger share bags. The flavouring on this particular type is very unique and although the name indicates something very spicy I personally find it much more moderate and will not leave you gasping for some milk! I have yet to try a bag that have not been well flavoured, you can normally gauge this from the actual colour of the crisps themselves, the darker coloured ones have more flavouring on and tend to be a bit tastier-you should find quite a few of these in the standard bag! I find that the product is very versatile. I have eaten them as a simple packet a crisps at lunch time but I have also used them at mealtimes to add a crunch to various dishes including nachos, on the side of a chilli or as an accompaniment to other mexican themed dishes. They actually make a pleasant change from chips or rice. Another advantage to the product is they are great for providing as 'nibbles' when friends are round or when sat in front of a film. The larger share bags are perfect to keep in the cupboard and break open with a selection of dips between friends, another option is to provide them as a buffet/BBQ filler. In my experience they always go down well with guests of all ages. The price-is what you would expect in order to compete with other crisp products on the market. You will often find larger bags and multi-packs on special offer in the larger supermarkets. The price does not leave you wanting to hunt out cheaper alternatives, I think this added to the flavour means that few other manufacturers have tried to copy this product. My advice would be to try these out, enjoy the flavour and keep them handy in the food cupboard at all times.
I have been purchasing this flavour of Dorito's for absolutely ages now, and I would definitely say they are my favourite flavour. I love all of the others too, but this one seems to have the most intense and moreish taste. I think I was a little dubious when I first picked them up, as I had no idea of how hot they would be, and the packaging seems to suggest that they will be pretty spicy! I needn't have worried though, because I would categorise these as having a medium level of heat (I can usually tolerate a Bhuna or Jalfrezi when I get an Indian if that helps!). The heat does seem to build a little more over time, so if you are planning to eat a whole packet, then expect it to get spicier towards the end! I really enjoy the crunchiness of Doriro's overall, so they are a little different to most other crisps on the market. I also find the Dorito's brand to be much more delicious than the supermarket's own variety - as I've tried the Tesco's version, and they didn't seem to have quite as much flavour or crunch. My boyfriend is a huge fan of nacho's and I find they this flavour makes a more unusual base for them. We usually have them about once a week, and it's a really quick and simple meal to prepare. I simply stir fry mince, onions, peppers, and tomato's and then add a chilli sauce, a pour this over the Dorito's and add a dollop of cheese, and there you have some really tasty nacho's! This flavour comes in everything from multi-packs to big sharing bags, and I'll do a run down of the prices below. Tesco: 6 Pack of Chilli Heatwave - £1.48 Chilli Heatwave 225g bag - £1.98 (currently offering 2 bags for £3.50). Asda: Chilli Heatwave 225 bag - £1.98 (currently offering 2 bags for £2.00). I often find that the big sharing bags are on offer, so I will usually snap them up when they are! These don't make for the healthiest of snacks, as a 100g portion contains 500 calories, but as a treat I think they are just fine.
My husband became addicted to Chilli heat wave Doritos as soon as they were launched but I was a little reluctant to try them as I thought they would be too spicy. But I finally gave in and tried them and have found them to be very very Moorish and addictive. The chilli heat wave Doritos come in all different sized packets including individual sized bags, grab bags, multi-packs and large sharing sized bags. Now if I buy my husband the large sharing bags there is not a lot of sharing that happens and I am usually lucky if I get a couple out of the bag before he scoffs the lot! The last bag I purchased was the individual 40g bag at a cost of 55p. I think this is rather expensive for a bag of crisps but I didn't want to be tempted to eat more. If you keep a look out in the supermarkets you can sometimes find good offers on the multi-packs or sharing bags. Now for the horrid bit that I try not to look at when eating these, the nutritional content for a 40g bag: Calories - 200 Sugar - 1.9g Fat - 10.3g Saturates - 2.4g Salt - 0.64g The Doritos are triangular shaped corn chips, I love the crunch and texture of Doritos and if I have a dip to go with them then it makes them even more addictive but with these chilli heat wave ones I prefer to eat them alone as I have not yet found a dip that goes with them very well. The first time I had a bag of them I was quite shocked at just how bright red they are in colour and thought if they have that much flavouring on them they are bound to be very hot. But when you first start eating them they do not appear to be very strong and spicy, you get more of a paprika taste. But after four or five the spiciness starts to kick in, it is not too overpowering though which means you can go on and eat more. I am not a huge lover of really spicy food but I love these so I would certainly recommend anyone to try them they are very tasty indeed!
I absolutely love crisps, and anyone who follows my reviews will probably find it quite amusing that a couple of days after eating and reviewing a healthier alternative (trying to kick start the pre-wedding diet), here I am reviewing what I would call "proper" crisps (I went out and bought a bag yesterday as I was craving food with taste). Well, there's always tomorrow for diets to start... These are possibly my favourite crisps of all time, I once ate three consecutive bags in an evening, THAT'S how addictive they are! The packaging is red and gives you an idea of the flavour to expect. Chilli heatwave is, as suggested by the name, a chilli flavour which is a bit spicy but not overpowering. The crisps are triangular in shape, as are all Doritos, and nice and crunchy. They are corn-based. One of the things I enjoy about eating these crisps is that they are a nice shape to fit in your mouth without being anti-social in the staffroom in work. Also, because I am forever threatening to go to the dentist but never find time, I have a few fillings and other issues that need sorting out, so I find some crisps quite uncomfortable to eat. I don't have this problem with Doritos (shame really, I might lose a few pounds if I did!) When you open these crisps you are hit by the smell of the chilli flavouring, and the crisps themselves look like they're covered in chilli flavoured powder. They leave quite a residue on your fingers so it's probably best not to try and multi-task whilst eating these otherwise you'll end up with crisp powder all over your keyboard/clothes/whatever it is you're trying to do. Each crisp is about two bites in size, depending on how hungry you are and how polite you like to be. The flavour is the best of any chilli flavoured crisps I've had, as it's struck the perfect balance between intense and overpowering. It's quite spicy so might not suit small children, but generally I can't imagine them being too hot for most people. You can buy these crisps in single standard-sized packets, slightly larger 'grab bags', a multipack of 6, or a large 250g sharing bag. They also come in the mixed flavour Doritos multipack, but we don't buy these because they can cause serious relationship endangering fights about who's having the last chilli heatwave flavour. The multipacks cost around £1.50 at full price but you can often pick them up for £1 in discount stores or when they are on offer in the supermarket. Nutrition wise, I tend not to worry too much about the content because they are one of my more indulgent treats and I like to enjoy my food. Each normal sized bag contains 150 calories (not too bad really), 1g sugar, 8g fat, 1g saturated fat and 0.4g salt. All in all, there are worse treats you could eat in terms of nutritional value, and these aren't too bad if eaten in moderation (I guess that means not 3 consecutive bags but it's not like that happens daily!). I suppose the only downside is that they do smell a little, so you won't get away with eating them without the entire office knowing. I find a bit of chewing gum usually sorts this problem though. I can't give these anything less than 5 stars as they are my all-time favourite snacks
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ BRIEF OVERVIEW ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Chilli Heatwave Doritos are a fiery flavoured corn crisp snack or chip snack if you are from America! The crisps come in a triangular shaped form and are heavily flavoured. It says on the packaging that they taste so amazing due to being made in a traditional Mexican way. Chilli Heatwave Doritos are manufactured by Walkers. A single bag can be purchased for about 45p - 50p. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ PACKAGING ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Chilli Heatwave Doritos come in a tradtional crisp packet bag. It has a silver foil type interior which I'm guessing aids the freshness of the crisps. The exterior of the bag is red in color to indicate a some what hot association with the crisp flavour. It states on the packaging that these crisps are cooked in sunseed oil which is naturally low in saturates. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ TASTE ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Instantly as soon as you put one of these crisps in your mouth its brimming with flavour and a nice warm sensation. I'd say they are mildly hot with a very poweful taste. They have quite alot of dusty flavour on them and I find them highly enjoyably. The texture of the crisps are quite corny. You can really taste the corn of the crisps and they have a nice slight crunch to them. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ NUTRITIONAL INFORMATION FOR A TYPICAL 40G BAG ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Energy: 840kJ/200kcal Protein: 3g Carbohydrate; 23g of which sugars: 1.6g Fat; 11g of which saturates; 0.9g of which mono-unsaturates; 8g of which polyunsaturates: 1.2g Fibre: 1.2g Sodium*: 0.22g *Equivalent as Salt: 0.55g ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ PRODUCT INGREDIENTS ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Corn (whole maize kernals), sunflower oil (26%), chilli heatwave flavour [sugar, flavourings (contains soya, wheat), flavour enhancers (monosodium glutamate, disodium 5'-ribonucleotide), fructose, soy sauce powder (contains soya beans, wheat), acidity regulator (sodium diacetate), hydrolysed soya protein, colours (sulphite ammonia caramel, paprika extract, beetroot powder), citric acid, malic acid], salt, potassium chloride. This product is suitable for Vegetarians. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ SUMMARY ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ A fantastic flavour packing quite a punch. Packaging is standard. A great corn, crisp snack with a great taste at a competetive price. I would recomend anyone who likes a bit of heat to try these crisps. ~Also on Ciao.
I am not usually a crisp person but I do have a real weakness for Chilli Heatwave Doritos. To look at they are just triangular shaped corn crisps with a slight red tint, due to the flavouring, but once you put one in your mouth its like an explosion of flavour. I am a huge fan of spicy food, the hotter the better as far as I'm concerned and if you're like me then these crisps are perfect for you. It only takes about 3 or 4 crisps for your mouth to be on fire which is exactly the sensation I look for. However if you are not a fan of this burning feeling then I advise you dip the crisps in Doritos Cool Sour Cream dip, it really takes the edge off of the taste. The only downside to this is that the dip is just as moorish as the crisps and its just not the same if you don't have a huge dollop on each triangle. As I'm sure you can imagine the crisps alone are not particularly healthy let alone smothered in a dip. I'm currently pregnant and make myself feel better when eating a lot by telling myself that I'm going to get fat anyway (probably not the healthiest outlook I could have), however I will give you the necessary nutritional information so you can make a more informed decision.

Asda for example have the following: Chilli Heatwave, Tangy Cheese & and Original flavours come in multi packs with 6 x 30g bags for £1.16. These flavours along with Lightly Salted, Flaming Cheeseball and Hint of Lime come in larger bags of 225g to share which cost £1.48. The dips that are available are Mild Salsa, Hot Salsa and Cool Sour Cream and come in 326g glass jars with a screw lid. These are selling for £1.38. There is a range of Doritos called Collisions which are 2 flavours in the same bag, Chicken Sizzler/Zesty Salsa and T Bone Steak/Grilled Pepper. These come in bags of 200g for £1.48. I have never seen them anywhere else but i recently purchased a 125g bag of Chilli Heatwave for 99p from my local newsagents. On the back of the bag it states that they are suitable for vegetarians and once opened they should be consumed within 3 days, this should not be a problem, as I previously stated they are incredibly moorish and in my house don't usually last more than an hour. Due to this fact and taking the price in to consideration they are not something that we have in our house all the time, they are usually saved for nights when we decide to stay up late and watch a good film. In conclusion these crisps are great for a treat but for the various reasons stated above it may not be the best idea for them to be eaten too regularly.
Whilst out shopping yesterday the eldest child picked up 2 mutipacks of doritos that were on offer in Iceland. They were 2 for £3.00. The multipacks have 3 different flavours. These are Cool Original, Tangy Cheese and Chili Heatwave. Each pack has ten 30g packs in. The one I am reviewing at the moment is the Chili Heatwave. Doritos (Spanish for little bits of gold) have gone a long way since being introduced in the USA back in 1964. Doritos are basically tortilla chips. In the case of Doritos we are informed that 'the best corn is ground into a soft dough. It is then shaped and toasted and then fried'. At this stage the seasoning is added. Upon opening the 30g bag of Doritos, very similar to the one pictured above, you are hit by a nice strong chilli smell. The bag has an assortment of different shaped doritos in, obviously broken during transit. However upon biting into one the freshness is second to none, obviously helped by the foil lined packet it comes in. They remind me very much of crisps but are a lot thicker. They have a nice crunchy taste and for some it might be considered too hard - especially younger children. The flavouring is gorgeous. I love spicy food and these are no exception. I am not surprised to see that all previous reviews on here have awarded this flavour a five star. I will too. I love licking all the flavour off the dorito before devouring the chip itself. I must admit at times though the flavouring was so intense I needed a quick slurp of a glass of water I have nearby. Like crisps, these chips are not the healthiest snack in the world. Although they are cooked in Sunseed oil, which is naturally lower in saturates, they still have a heft 150kcal in a 30g pack. Add to this 8g of fat and 18g of carbohydrates, this isn't going to do your waste line any favours. I do however recommend these doritos to those who enjoy a 'fiery' snack. I wouldn't recommend them for young children or those who don't like spicy. The spicy flavour to me, can't be improved. Delicious!!!
On the list of my all time favourite savoury snacks has to be Doritos - Chilli Heatwave. And I get an 'Allie Special' everytime my other half goes to the corner shop for them, yeah you guessed, its 2 packets. One simply does not contain enough to 'quench' my craving! The tortilla chip style snacks are really eyecatching and distinct in their flame red packaging, with the familiar Doritos logo, I think that's what attracted my to trying them in the first instance. Each 40g packet contains around 200 calories which is a sizable chunk out of your daily allowance. Fat is a whopping 11g, and and saturates are 0.9g which is not too bad. They are quite high in salt at 0.6g but its to be expected since they are a salty, savoury product. In terms of taste, I don't think you can beat them really when you are looking for a spicy snack. They are really crunchy and thick, and look like a regualr tortilla chip. Each chip is coated with a thick layer of the chilli heatwave flavouring, and is a really rich red colour. The flavouring is rather powdery and can stain your finger tips if you heat too many, so beware! When they say 'heatwave' they are referring to the heat the chilli gives off which is quite intense. Its a nice fieriness, not too overpowering, the chilli is still a very dominant flavour, not at all over-run by a synthetic flavour. I have tried a few chilli flavoured crisps in the past which I have been disappointed with as they have been more sweet than spicy, such as Philleas Fogg and Walkers Taste Sensations. If you enjoy spicy food, then I think these will definitely hit the spot. Doritos are availabe in other flavours such as tangy cheese and cool original, I have tried the others on the strenght that I enjoyed the chilli heatwave variety, but did not enjoy the other flavours. When your usual crisp fix isn't cutting it for you, give these hotties a try. Be warned, only one packet will NOT do! Go on get the 'Allie' special!
The best flavour in the Dorito's range ever. These came out a few years ago and normally we have a bag in the house. Me and my Wife both like this flavour, and can sometimes share a full bag which doesn't seem to last that long. I've only seen these in the large bags, which I think are 220g. Pity there isn't smaller ones so I could take them to work. Guess I could take a large bag with me, bit it wouldn't be the same. The bag looks a bit hot and firey as well. These are shaped like all the Dorit's. Triangular shaped, pretty crisp and have black flecks through them. The Crisps have a reddish tinge to them, so that must be the flavouring. So how do these taste? Pretty Hot. They aren't too hot and spicy, but they do leave a bit of a kick in your mouth. Not so much that you want to stop eating these, or that you have to take a long frink, this is a good and spicy Crisp. I would highly recommend these to anyone. They do what they say on the bag, and are just great tasting. A Crisp that is full of flavour.
These crisps were originally my boyfriend's choice, I didn't really like the sound of them - I thought they would be too hot and burn my mouth off. However, surprisingly they were lovely, I ate more than my fair share of the packet and they are now one of my favourite flavours in the Doritos's range. ***************** Price******************* Multi-packs of these crisps are usually around £1.30 in Asda and I picked up a large 200g packet (on offer) for £1.00 last week, (although they are usually around £1.50 when they are not on offer). ******************Nutritional Information*** ***************** A 30g serving contains: Calories: 175; Protein: 3g; Carbohydrate: 21g (of which sugars: 1.4g); Fat: 9.0g (of which saturates: 0.8g). The major problem with these crisps is that there are almost 1000 calories in a big packet and once you open these crisps, it's difficult to stop eating them because they are extremely tasty. As soon as you open the bag the strong chilli scent hits you. I think the smell is a combination of chillies and jalapenos! They are also coated in chilli powder and paprika, which you can see because they have a red coating. These are tortilla chips, so they are triangular shaped. Taste-wise they are lovely, quite hot - but I like spicy food and the jalapeno, chilli and paprika taste makes them very appetising. The taste is quite unique and I haven't tasted another tortilla chip that tastes like this one. If we buy a big packet of these then we usually eat them with a light Doritos's salsa, because this makes them even nicer to eat. I think these crisps would be a great addition to a festive buffet and they are also fantastic if you fancy pigging out over the festive period. However, you should eat them in moderation because they are calorific. Five pout of five stars from me, because they are bloody lovely. Give them a go!
Chilli doritos, my favourite of all crisps! and all of the doritos flavours to. since trying them for the first time, i have loved them since. me and a friend have become addicted to them. the great thing about these crisps are that they are full with flavour! which is always a important thing with crisps, no body likes crisps with hardly no flavour on them they might as well be flavourless if thats the case and not worth buying. unlike the cheese flavour, the cool original not so much, the chilli crisps don't smell. i think alot of people know that the cheese pack smell quite alot but with chilli you don't get that horrible whiff when you open the pack. not only that but as chilli heatwave flavour, they are expected to make your mouth quite 'heated' and its true, they do. for some people, they may need a drink but for others they get through without one. the share pack are a decent size and have quite alot of crisps in them. they are perfect to share between 2 people and perfect to put out for a small snack. i often find the big pack on offer for £1 in supermarkets like morrisons or tescos, which is great value for this big bag. otherwise they would be around £1.75ish. i definitely recommend these crisps, they are addicting after you've tried them unless you don't like hot food.
Doritos Chilli Heatwave are my snack of choice! They taste so good and spicy! They're better than normal boring crisps. Whenever I want some crisps that are really full of flavor I choose these. I actually buy the really big bags (made for sharing except I don't hahaha) and they work out better value for money. If you're going to buy these I recommend you put the leftovers in a seal tub because I once began eating a whole bag to myself - greedy I know but you do have those days now and again! - and I couldn't finish them. When I went back to the bag- even though I had rolled them up sooo nicely - they were 'wet' and had lost their crunch! ***Packaging*** The crisps come in a 30g bag, a bright red colour. They pop out at you on the shelf! ***Price*** I always buy a six pack multi-pack of these crisps in Asda which costs me the princely sum of £1.30. ***Nutritional Information*** A 30g bag contains: Energy 175Kcal Protein: 3g Carbohydrate: 21g of which sugars: 1.4g Fat: 9.0g of which saturates: 0.8g ***Chilli Heatwave Crisps*** As soon as you open the bag of Doritos you are hit with a strong chilli scent. It reminds me of Jalapenos! They're basically normal plain Doritos Mexican brothers! They have some red dust on them like chilli powder or paprika. The crisps are the usual Dorito triangular tortilla shape and have the usual taste of Doritos underneath. Taste wise the Chilli Heatwave are delicious. As soon as you put the crisp in your mouth you are met with a strong, spicy, chilli taste. I could lick the flavor off the crisps and not bother eating the crisps themselves! Very crispy with a nice crunch to them. Sometimes my mouth is slightly burning- depends on how hot you like your food I guess! But its worth it! ***Overall*** These are by far my favourite crisps. The crisps are very crunchy and delicious and nothing else is out on the market that matches these. Try them with a cooling dip or raita YUM!
I was thinking back to when I was in sixth form and remembered quite randomly that on a daily basis I would consume at least two bags of Dorito Chilli Heatwave crisps (and two Smarties bars) I'm not sure what is more shocking, that for two years I kept up this eating habit never sickening myself with these snacks or that I never put on a pound in weight and remained so skinny. So after reminiscing about how great it was to be 18 I decided to purchase a bag of Doritos Chilli Heatwave from my local newsagents. Big mistake..... I soon realised how addictive these crisps can be. ***Packaging*** The Chilli Heatwave crisps come in a 30g bag, a deep bright red in colour with black trim to contrast the strong red block colour. The front of the pack shows an image of a Chilli Heatwave Dorito which has a strong golden colour. ***Price*** A 30g bag of Chilli Heatwave Doritos costs £40p in my local newsagent, the same as other standard bags of crisps from Walkers. It is also possible to buy a six pack multi-pack of these crisps in Asda which cost £1.30. ***Chilli Heatwave Crisps*** As soon as you open the bag of Doritos you are hit with a very pleasant chilli scent. Walkers Sensations also have a chilli flavour which I think is a very sweet and sickly flavour. The Dorito Chilli Heatwave have a very different chilli scent. It is more savoury and not at all a sickly sweet scent, in fact it is very much like Mexican food mixed with a hint of Jalapeños. The crisps are a triangle tortilla shape. In comparison to the other flavours of Doritos you could probably tell the Chilli Heatwave flavour apart as they are slightly more golden and have speckles of red dust on the crisps, very much like paprika. Taste wise the Chilli Heatwave are fantastic. As soon as you put the crisp in your mouth you are met with a warm chilli taste. The crisps are extremely crispy and have a nice crunch to them. The chilli flavour of the crisps is slightly tangy and has a bit of a kick to it but this is a definite savoury taste and not at all sweet like some chilli flavoured crisps can be. The chilli flavour is spicy but not overly spicy and uncomfortable. After eating a full bag of these crisps you are left with a spicy after taste in your mouth but not an unpleasant burning sensation. **Nutritional Information** A 30g bag contains: 150 calories 8g fat As far as crisps go these are not the worst crisps that you could eat as a standard bag of Walkers crisps contain more calories and fat, however these crisps would not really be considered "lighter alternatives" in the same way Quavers and French Fries are. However a bag every now and then as a treat will do no harm. ***Overall*** These are by far my favourite crisps. Taste wise they offer something different to other crisps and flavours that are on the market. The crisps are very crunchy and although "Chilli" flavour these are spicy without being overpowered and unpleasant to eat by being too strong. A great snack every now and then....... Providing you don't develop an addiction like me.
I love Chilli Heatwave Doritos made by Walkers, they have so much flavour and amazing taste to them. These are the greatest Doritos flavour by far, when you open a pack you have to finish it otherwise your just thinking about finishing it all day. they come in the Doritos multipack or by themselves in a big "to share" pack , however I hate to share these crisps as they are so good. The best thing I like to do is cook and chops up some bacon, throw it over a bowl of Chilli Heatwave Doritos, throw on some jalepinos and a load of melted cheese on top, get a selection of dips, then just go eating crazy. These are by far the best Doritos. However you do generally devour a hold massive bag even if you don't want to, because they are so moreish. Long live Chilli Heatwave Doritos.
