I do enjoy the odd packet of crisps/savoury snacks and have recently rediscovered my love for Doritos especially the cool original flavour. I purchased a multi-pack of Doritos from Sainsbury's recently where they were on a buy one get one free special offer priced at £3.50 for a bag of 12 x 30g packets. The Doritos are made by Walkers and are described as corn chips with a cool original flavour. They come packaged in a foil packet which is blue in colour and details all the necessary information including ingredients listings, nutritional information, allergy advice etc. As much as I love the taste of these corn chips I do tend to try not to eat them too often as they are rather high in calories. Each 30g packet contains the following nutritional information: Calories - 149 Fat - 7.9g Carbohydrate - 16.4g Salt - 0.57g As far as the taste is concerned I love these corn chips. The flavour is difficult to describe but seems to be slightly of onion and does actually feel quite cool on the taste buds when you eat them. The texture of these corn chips are really nice too as they are really crunchy and not in any way greasy. I enjoy eating these cool original Doritos on there own but they are also great for dipping in either a creamy sour cream, cheesy or salsa dip. They are especially delicious washed down with a glass of wine!
Its Friday night, in my house that means wine and some snacks. Tonights snacks are Doritos. I equally enjoy these at any time of the day and a snack that my children also really like. Doritos means in spanish / mexican "turn golden or crisp" and this brand was producing tortilla chips since 1966 My crisps Tortilla are made of ground corn, vegetable oil and salt. They have a little extra kick than the average crisp, this packet is called cool original and tastes very spicy. I personally prefer this one however there is a cheesy and a red hot version too. The cool original comes in the apropriately coloured blue bag, cheesy (tangy cheese) orange and hot (chili heat wave) is quite aptly red. The bags are foil and therefore keep the crisps air tight. The are shaped like long triangles and I know people do use these with dips but I prefer to eat them un naturale! They have a real kick and are crunchy in a different way to crisps. Price I bought my bag of 6 (3 of each flavour) as a buy 3 family bags for £4 deal in Asda. Advertising The byline on the packet is "Doritos are made in the authentic mexican way with the best corn to give you the ultimate taste, crunch and flavour experience". They rebranded in Feb 2013 under the line "FOR THE BOLD" Dietary I have just consumed a 30g bag which equates to 152kcal, 8.0g fat of which 0.8 are satrurates, with 0.56g salt. Trans fats were removed from these products in 2002. Allergy advice Contains Milk but are made in a factory that handles wheat, gluten, Barley, Soya, Celery, Mustard. Also Available in Jalapeño Fire (Black) Light Salted (Cream) Hint of Lime (Green) Barbecue (Brown) Salsa Nacho Fajita Bowl (Pink) With accompanying salsas like Hot Salsa, Mild Salsa, Sour Cream & Chive, Nacho Cheese, Barbecue, Red Pepper & Paprika. Im going to rate 4/5 doo yoo stars as they are very tasty and are going down with my glass of wine however I wish they were less calories...
I'm a bit of a monster when it comes to crisps. I could very happily munch my way a multi pack of crisps. Not that i ever have, just that i reckon i could lol ;) anyway although my favourite all time crisps are the marmite crisp (only ever see them in sainsburys though), i will pick up a multi pack of whatever is on offer. I then give these out for pack lunches and i normally grab a pack myself at some point during the day. I brought these blue doritos in a 6 bag multi pack. Each multi pack comes with 6x 110g packets. The packaging is blue to indicate the cool flavour if this pack. Doritos also do a cheesy flavour in orange packaging and a chili flavour in red packaging. Although i like all three i prefer the zaney taste of the version. I think the multi pack was on offer for £1.50, but i have also seen doritos in the big share bags, and the regular singular 110g packets. Doritos are crunchy triangles which are a light orange colour. Its hard to describe the cool flavour but it seems to have a lot of herbs and spices (and probably salt) and it seems to balance really well. Each crisp seems to be well flavoured and consistent You can use these with dips, not just the doritos dips, but any sort of salsa dips, or if like me you can appreciate them by themselves. Overall these are definitely a good brand of crisp. I wouldn't run out to buy them, but if i get some crisps as a snack at a service station or at the cinema then i would never hesitate to pick myself up a bag of these. They do leave the bottoms of your fingers all grubby with the dust at the bottom of the packet but i love licking these bits so each to the their own lol. I would also definitely recommend trying out a larger packet size just to test out the salsa flavours. The price is reasonable for a multi pack but this was on offer i noticed so i can't say for the price when its not on offer. Being vegetarian doritos are one the brand of crisps i can eat since a lot of crisps put glutamate in it so thats a big bonus for me too.
I'm not normally someone who sits and eats junk food in front of the telly when I'm watching it. However, I make one exception for a Sunday afternoon watching the F1 Grand Prix. I don't know why I can excuse myself for this one event, but I do, and Dortios are pretty much the ultimate snack. Cool Original are my favourite flavour out of the main three (I don't count the lightly salted ones as a flavour). I just find the cheesey ones too overpowering the artificial colour extremely off-putting. The chilli heatwave ones aren't spicy enough for my tastes either. The Cool Original have a really pleasant garlic tomato sort of taste which occasionally be a little salty but that really just depends on the bag you buy. The price is also really good as supermarkets have multibuy offers on the sharing bags and you can buy them in the smaller 25g packets in bigger bags. I've even found bags of 6 in the 99p and in Poundland which is even better value! The snacks themselves are really crunchy and are the perfect texture for something like this. They're also the perfect size to fit and entire one in your mouth the one go :) (of course I would never do such a thing!) Overall, these are the perfect snack food for a lazy afternoon in front of the telly and they're also perfect for lunch with a sandwich. I've also found myself dunking them in soup and eating them with Chilli Con Carne.
Background: I am a fan of crisps as you can probably tell from the amount of reviews I do on them. One of my favourite flavours of crisps is Doritos "Cool Original" flavour. The brand also do other flavours such as strong cheese flavours but I'm not exactly the biggest fan of cheese this flavour is the only one I tend to regularly buy and eat and is one I find myself always going back to. The basics: Doritos are crunchy triangles of a light orange colour. They are saturated with flavour, in this case a cool range/mild cheese flavour and the bottom of the pack is often smothered with excess power (which for some is one of the best parts of eating crisps!). One of the things I love about this particular product is that each crisp has an equal flavour and there aren't very strong and then completely tasteless crisps. This makes a change and is one of the reasons eating these crisps is particularly enjoyable. This particular flavour comes in a blue foil packet with the name written in white and a small image of what the crisps look like. The foil manages to keep the crisps fresh and crunchy and it is also recyclable which are both positives in my book. The crisps come in single packs, a slightly larger share packet, and sometimes in multiples packs although I tend to find these a little too pricy for my budget and as such steer clear from them (they aren't that steep but are a bit more than other brands such as Walkers). A share bag is probably the best variety as obviously you can share it with others and it makes a nice treat to compliment with salsa which helpfully are also now sold. My favourite flavour of Salsa is mild because im a wuss but there are also stronger ones which compliment the taste of the crisps excellently. Additional: Free from Gluten Suitable for Vegetarians Suitable for Coeliacs Overall these are definitely a product I would recommend and make for a nice treat from time to time. I would also definitely recommend trying out a larger packet size just to test out the salsa flavours as it revitalises a crisps which arguably after eating regularly may become a little samey (as all things tend to do). The price is reasonable for a single packet and they are usually reasonably full instead of only 1/3 full which is a regular occurrence nowadays. A tasty treat.
I am not really a big crisp eater, personally if I am going to have a bit of a treat I would rather go for something sweet, however if I am going to have some crisps my favourites are Doritos, over Christmas the large sharing bags were Buy One Get One Free so I had to take Tesco up on this offer and stock up on them. One of my favourite flavours is the Cool Original, although I'm not sure exactly what flavour Cool Original is supposed to be there is something rather addictive about them. Doritos Cool Original come in a large blue bag, basically a larger version of a regular sized crisp packet. Right at the top of the bag is a large blue and black triangle designed to look like a Dorito and the word "Doritos" written right across the bag in large white letters outlined in black and red. Just beneath this is the flavour of the crisps which in this case is "Cool Original" again this is written in large white letters. Right at the bottoms of the packet is the weight and also the nutritional information. The front of the packet is quite basic however it does stand out. The back of the packet is plain black in colour with most of the product information being in white, down the left hand side is information such as ingredients, nutritional information and allergy advise as well as contact details for Doritos should you need them. All of the information is set out inside small grey boxes which makes it very easy to read and find what you are looking for. Doritos are basically corn chips, they are a triangle shape and quite large for a crisp, they are quite a pale yellow colour with little flecks in it and you can clearly see the flavouring on the crisps, this seems to have slight orangey colour specks in it. When you open the bag the crisps do have quite a strong smell to them, this has a slight spicy hint to it although I'm not sure they are supposed to be spicy. The actual flavour of Cool Original is a bit strange, it does have what I could say is a 'cool' element to it, the flavouring is very tangy and slightly spicy, it is definitely a strong flavouring so if you like mild flavours then this is probably not one for you, if I am going to have crisps I do like the flavouring to be strong, I hate crisps that just taste of plain potato, I do like the flavouring to be strong and noticeable which with this is the case. What I also like about Cool Original Doritos is that you do not get crisps with no flavour on them and then one or two with loads on, with these I have always found the flavouring to be quite evenly spread, obviously some do have slightly more flavour on them than other (these are my favourite ones) but you do not get crisps that have not flavouring on at all. Nutritional Information Obviously crisps are not the healthiest thing so I wasn't expecting to be that impressed with the nutritional information, this is given per 30g serving and includes *Calories - 152 *Protein - 2.5g *Carbohydrates - 17.1g *Fat - 8.1g *Fibre - 0.9g Personally I do think that these are quite high in calories and fat, but they are crisps so I didn't really expect anything else, also I find it very hard to stick to a 30g serving, if I have the bag next to me I have to move it in the end to prevent me from eating the majority of them and as my husband hates them I am the only one in the house that eats them. Because of the high calorie and fat content I do not buy these on a regular basis, as Doritos are one of the few crisps I enjoy I find it best just to not have them in the house unless it is a special occasion as they really will not last that long at all. On the back of the packet is some allergy advise which states that this product contains Milk, it also says that the crisps are made in a factory which handles wheat, gluten, barley, soya, celery and mustard. This is clearly listed on the back of the packet and is easy to read so if you do suffer from allergies you can quickly and easily see if these crisps will be suitable for you. This section also states that the crisps are suitable for vegetarians which is perfect me and my Mum who are both Veggie. As I have mentioned I brought my Cool Original Doritos from my local Tesco however the large 250g sharing bags can be brought in most supermarkets as well as a lot of corner shops and convenience stores. Each 250g bag costs just £1.98, however when I purchased them over Christmas they were buy one get one free which makes them even more a bargain, although I would be happy to pay full price for these as well. Personally I would say that they were worth the money but this is because I find them so enjoyable, I certainly wouldn't say that they are over priced at all as you do get a large bag for the money and I do find that the bags are full almost to the top so you are not paying for a half empty bag. Overall I would definitely recommend Cool Original Doritos, they have a lovely strong distinctive flavour to them which is slightly spicy, they are perfect if you are a fan of strong flavours. The large bag which I brought is ideal for sharing perfect for a night in or if you have people round as a snack. The only disadvantage for me is probably the calories and fat content but as I only buy these for special occasions this is really a problem but I wouldn't recommend eating a huge amount on a regular basis, and also the fact that they are so addictive. They are very reasonably priced and you do get a decent amount for your money. This is definitely a product I will continue to buy and one I would recommend
Their are three main types of Doritos, the cool original, tangy cheese and chilli heatwave, however cool and tangy are the stronghold for Doritos as these are the ones found most commonly, you can find them in almost any shop due to the high popularity. My love for cool original Doritos has been a long one, I have liked these since i first ever tried then back when i was a little tot. the packaging of Doritos is a bit deceptive because whether you are getting the small multi pack, individual pack or the sharing sized packet they all come in a much larger packet than the quantity contains. Upon opening the packet the dismay you will feel if it's your first time will be shocking, almost half the packet if not more sometimes is just empty! Once you tuck in though you will fall in love, the flavor is quite hard to describe, it's somewhat a little spicy but not hot. I have heard that it is meant to taste of a salad or something like that but i do not know the authenticity of this information. For those wanting a low calorie crisp then this is definitely not for you as this has quite a high calorie and fat content compared to some other crisps. In conclusion if you have not had Doritos cool original before then you MUST try them, they are definitely worth giving a go and i find that most people do tend to like them, the drawback is they do have quite a strong scent to them.
This is one of the three main Doritos flavours. These crisps come in three different versions. You can get individual packets for about 45p, sharing bags for about £1.60 or multi-packs for about £2. These aren't like the sort of crisps you get with Walkers, they are corn chips which are supposedly healthier. Of course as with all Doritos corn chips they are triangular. This is the Cool Original flavour which you can as with all Doritos use with their post of dips or just eat on their own. I saw this to be a ready salted kind of crisp but it does not look like it. They are a deep golden colour with slight browning in parts. What surprised me however, was the presence of what looked liked spicy flavouring in that there were little red dots all over the chips. With a name like Cool Original I expected them to be a gentler flavour, but they taste very salty but there is definitely a bit of spice in there too and the taste lingers on the tongue. These are very filling crisps, as they are thick and each one is of a good size, unlike something like Quavers, and would be a good snack for a hungry person but they make you incredibly thirsty quite quickly. Though these aren't really bad, the name is a bit deceptive, they would be more appropriately called Cool Spice or Lighly Spiced....
I like all Dorito's flavours, but obviously I like some more than others. Although this flavour isn't way up there as my favourite ever - that goes to the Chilli Heatwave ones, there is just something nice about this taste. It is simple but with a bit of a twist to it. We bought a few bags when Asda were selling the large 225g bags for £1. They normally cost around £1.50, but a little saving can go a long way. The bag is ok looking. It is a nice blue colour and has the dorito's branding on the front and a picture of a couple of the Crisps. These are Tortilla Chips, or Corn Chips are they are referred to on the pack. Per 35g serving these have 176 calories and 9g of fat. I could probably eat half the bag without even noticing when watching tv, so perhaps not that great for you. These are thin Crisps and in the standard triangle shape that Tortilla's are. They are full of flavour and it is hard to describe the flavouring of these. They are salty, but with a cool taste. Not like a minty taste, but a sort of tingly scent and taste. Very nice and easy to jazz up with some Dip as well if you wish. A nice simple flavouring for a big brand of Crisps.
Since these Doritos became available I cannot resist them, they are very tasty and delicious, I have been eating them for many years and they seem to have become more tastier the longer they have been on the market and I like a different kind of snack sometimes , as when I settle down for the evening I like to snack while watching television or on the PC, they are handy to just take a couple out at a times to snack on, I find them irresistable and always find I want more and disapointed when the bag is empty and I sometimes have a second bag, I just cannot help myself sometimes, they come in a 30g bag and they contain per bag: 150 calories 1.2g sugar 8g fat 0.8 saturates 0.6g salt I do not think they are that high in calories compared to some other brands, the manufacturer is Walkers and so you know that you can rely on very good quality as all their products are. They can be purchased at any supermarket and also come in multipacks and they are a little bit cheaper, I bought these for 49p. They are ideal for parties and BBQs and I also use mine with a dip sauce from a jar, and both together I find them delicious. I use them all the time all year around because I just love the taste and they have a crunchy feeling in the mouth and I take them on picnics in the good weather and they keep fresh because they come in a nice sized bag which is sealed and easy to open and the inside has a foil type inner lining which keeps the content fresh. My husband takes these also to work and they are ideal for him when he goes fishing. I like to watch television with mine and they are ideal for me to eat at nightime as they are not so heavy to digest at this time of day. They are kind of triangle shape and curly and I like the design of them as they are easy to scoop when used with the dip. They are cooked in Sunseed Oil which is naturally lower in saturates so it gives them a 75% less saturated fats. I recommend anyone to try these if they have not already and try them with the dip sauce too as combined together they are yummy. I give them a 5 star rating.
The color of the packaging is electric blue, it is cool calming and groovy. This goes for the taste too which are a great little cheese snake. Doritos definitely make the best crisps for dips and to be honest you can have them plain too. Although, like all crisps the packaging is about twice as big as the actual content, Doritos give you such a large amount you feel more than satisfied by the end. Cool original flavor is my favorite because they are just perfect for any time of the day and anyone likes them. This particular flavor incorporates the standard salty cheese twist that they all have but there is a sweetness that makes my mouth water even now! Although probably very unhealthy they are fine once In a while and make a movie night or party fantastic. You can have them with cheese and nachos or a spicy salsa mix. They are perfect for a snack on your own or with a group of friends.
Doritos are a light and tasty corn-based crisp snack that is extremely popular the world over, as I'm sure you know. They come in numerous flavours, such as Tangy Cheese and Chili Heatwave, but my favourite has to be the Cool Original flavour, which has a unique, strange, delicious taste, characterising the Doritos brand name perfectly. The packaging is light blue and very easy to spot on store shelves. A bag is 30g, which is about average for the crisp packets you'd expect from Walkers and their other competitors. When you open the pack, you'll be greeted with a pleasant whiff that's quite difficult to describe other than its clear corn-like smell. Inside are the Doritos - nacho-like wedges which are dusted with a gorgeous flavouring, which is difficult to describe and should probably just be tasted. It's a lot sweeter than the others, and for someone who finds Tangy Cheese too cheesy and Chili Heatwave too spicy, this is the perfectly cool flavour. The Doritos deliver a satisfying crunch as you bite into them, breaking the Dorito up into various shards in your mouth. Like a cement mixer, the food mixes around in your mouth and forms a less crunchy, moist ball, that makes its corn taste all the more apparent (given that the flavouring will well and truly be gone). I quite like to lick the flavouring off of the Dorito just as you might do with a Pringle. Obviously these aren't that healthy for you - each pack has 8g of fat, but they're fine as a snack, and they are quite low in saturated fats (only 0.8g, which is less than 5% of your daily intake). As long as you don't eat a whole multipack in a day, then these are fine as a treat.
Doritos make a wide range of corn chips that are widely available in any supermarket. The cool original flavour is the only one I buy nowadays, I have tried the others but this is far more tastier. I do not normal appreciate chips but there is something unique about the taste of this product that I keep coming back for it. What I mostly like about this that they can be found in a big 225 g bag and when I watch TV or play a video game I can't believe I ate them all by the end of the day. I forget about lunch, tea and dinner completely. I know is not good you but once in a while I feel this is my own personal treat I can get away with. I mostly appreciate about them is the corn fried taste they have. They seem to be coated with an interesting salty flowery flavoured on them. I believe that being made of corn they are no so bad for me as other chips on the market, I surely do not get any sort of sickness after going trough an entire 225g bag and that is a wander. Nothing is perfect but this corn chip come close to perfection to me however I still have to acknowledge a few bad points: - I find them a bit too big - being hard chips my mouth can get slightly irritated How do I eat them: I know this is strange and I have never heard on anyone doing this but I eat them with fresh grapes. At about every chip I pop a grape in my mouth and the 2 things compliment one another so amazingly. Is the saltiness of the chips combines with the sweetness of the grapes that is unbelievable. I am a big fan of cheese, crackers and grapes so this is what inspired me to try Doritos cool original flavoured corn chips with white and dark fresh grapes. One day my husband brought me home some grapes but I had no crackers to have my cheese with but I discovered something better, in fact I do not even see the point in having the cheese anymore is all just Doritos and grapes for me now.
***Packaging*** Cool Original flavoured Doritos come in a bag which is bright in colour and attention grabbing. This a black packet with a bright turquoise blue strip across the bag. Doritos is written in large white font on the front of the bag with an image of a triangle tortilla crisps underneath. ***Price*** A 30g bag of Doritos costs 40p in my local newsagents which is the same price as other bags of Walkers crisps. A 6 pack of 30g bags costs £1.39 in Asda. There are currently an offer on at Asda which has 3 multipacks for £3 therefore 18 bags of Doritos for £3 which is reasonable value for money. However Doritos are slightly more expensive than other tortilla crisps and most of the supermarkets, in particular Tesco and Asda offer very similar flavoured tortilla crisps for half the price of Doritos. ***Cool Original Doritos*** When you open the bag you are immediately hit with quite a peppery yet tangy scent. The crisps in appearance are a lot more golden than the other flavours of Doritos and the colourings look a lot less unnatural and the tortillas are not covered in an unnatural coloured dust. (Those that have tried the tangy cheese flavoured Doritos will know what I am talking about). As soon as you bite into the Dorito crisp you will notice how crunchy it is. The taste that hits you immediately is quite peppery and lightly spicy with a light golden flavour. As you chew the crisp you can taste herbs and the aftertaste is very light and quite peppery but quite salty. The Cool Original Dorritos are probably the plainest tasting crisps from the range of Doritos flavours in my opinion however are very tasty. **Nutritional Information** A 30g bag of Doritos contains: 150 calories 8g fat ***Overall*** These are certainly not my favourite flavour of Doritos and I am still yet to find a crisp which beats the Chilli Heatwave flavour but the Cool Original flavour do make a good snack and are not at all repulsive like the Dorito Tangy Cheese flavour are. The Cool Original tortilla crisps are crunchy with a lightly spicy flavour with a slight tang to them. These are perfect as a snack on there own or great to dunk in dips. For those who are cash conscious for the cost you can get similar products from the supermarkets own brands which taste just as good therefore 4 out of 5.
We picked up a couple of multipacks of Doritos on offer this week, so obviously I've been munching my way through a few bags. The usual retail price is around 50p for an individual bag, or £1.50 for a multipack of six individual bags from the supermarket. I have to admit that the Cool Original Flavour aren't my first choice when it comes to choosing a Doritos flavour. Chilli Heatwave are my faves in fact. But tonight I fancied something a little bit different, and also, let's be honest, I didn't want to get in trouble for eating all of the Chilli packets... You might assume that these are just plain tortilla chip crisps, but actually they do have a little bit of a flavour. When you bite into one of these, the first thing that hits is the strong corn flavour. Then as you chew them up, you get a real buttery flavour coming through along with a dash of salt. These are plain compared to the flavours, but they're not void of taste by any means. They're just exceptionally mild, hence the name 'Cool Original'. The quality of Doritos in general is always very good, with the Cool Original flavour being no exception to that. These snacks are always in top condition, with very few winging there way to you broken or in any way discoloured. Obviously these go through thorough quality control checks. The nutritional side of things is surprisingly okay. A 30g packet from a multipack will set you back 150 calories with 1.2g of sugar, 0.6g of salt and 8g of fat (most of which is mono-unsaturated). There are even 2g of protein in a packet of these. So these are a snack you can happily munch away on without worrying that they're going to lead to a coronary any time soon. Unless you dip them in mayo that is...
