Lime. Hands down it may be my favorite flavor additive to any given product. I like lime candy, lime soda, lime pie, lime vodka, I season my food with powdered lime seasoning. You might could say that I am a bit lime obsessed. I wouldn’t argue that point. So when I received the
blessing opportunity to review Doritos Dinamita Chile Limon, I was very much thrilled.
After the glorious experience I had taste testing Doritos Dinamita Nacho Picoso, and knowing that Dinamita Chile Limon had a lime component, I just knew that a ‘Yea!’ rating was a forgone conclusion, and my review would be one giant piece of Dorito propaganda. Ladies and gentleman, when I’m wrong, I say I’m wrong. In this case, my expectations were quite a ways off.
Lime was only used as a tool to make these snacks bitter, none of the festive fruit notes were able to punch their way through the incredibly dominant wall of chile pepper flavoring. Doritos really went for heat as the primary flavor here, and on that front, they succeeded. Where they failed was not offering any kind of balance. Also, it took a Clorox wipe to get the bright red coloring off of my fingers; they did not skimp on the amount of seasoning.
These are going in the ‘Meh…’ category from me. They were not what I expected, but I did like them enough to finish the bag. I can see where someone might really enjoy them, but that ‘someone’ wasn’t me, and I won’t be a repeat buyer.
