I originally wrote this back in 2010.....and never "published" it on the site. After going back over some older stuff, I've decided to release it. To the best of my knowledge, the Dorito's Late Night flavors are no longer available.....but it's still a fun little junk food review. I went back in and made a few tweaks, but in essence it's the same article.
While on a recent jaunt to Wal*Mart to pick up some supplies for the Midnight Cinema Barn of Doom, I noticed a large Doritos Floor Display (Hereby known as the DFD for the rest of the article....should I mention it again....you'll know what that is!). Amongst the regular line-up of tasty artery clogging flavors, I notice some new bags. Late Night. Ooooh....I stay up late at night! Neon lights! Yes! I love the 80's! Let's see now....what have we got for flavors......Tacos at Midnight.....interesting, though I've had taco flavored chips before. Last call Jalepino Poppers.....sounds a little too spicy for me. All Nighter Cheeseburger. WHAT? I LOVE CHEESEBURGERS!!!!!!!! But seriously, how is that going to taste in chip form?
In a word: Great.
The bag is absolutely awesome as well. I don't know exactly what it is....the neon sign, the color scheme...I dunno...something just screams BUY ME! Oh yeah, and I've heard that after you eat all yer chips, you can put the inside of the bag up to a webcam and if you go on the doritos website there's a way to put a concert in your bag. I don't know exactly what that means yet.....but I'll do some research and let y'all know! *I never did try this*
I love it. I'm not going to lie, I opened the bag with great trepidation....but once I stuck that triangle of goodness in my mouth, I was instantly transported to summer's day. *insert flashback/daydream here* Dad has the BBQ fired up and is making his famous burgers. Delicious dead cow meat topped with grilled onions, sauteed mushrooms, cheese, ketchup, mustard, mayo......and of course a side of Doritos (usually cheddar or ranch). *End flashback/daydream*
Why the daydream you ask? Because these chips taste exactly like the chips that got soaked in beef juice and condoments. Those soggy little guys were so tasty. Sure I probably love these because of the nostalgia factor, but I'm okay with that.
If you wanna try something new and crave some cheeseburgers, give these a shot! *If you can still manage to find a bag that is!*
