Doritos Dinamita Chile Limon

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.

Doritos Dinamita Nacho Picoso are the best tasting line extension I’ve seen come out of Frito-Lay in many of years. This was a chip so delicious that I simply did not have the will power to stop stuffing the little rolled up tortilla chips in to my mouth. Judging by all of the Spanish on the bag (English was secondary on this product), these are being marketed to the ever-growing Latino demographic. That may be true, but they won over a pasty white boy with ease.

The flavor is a mix of nacho cheese, some spicy kick, and a tangy vinegar like finish that makes my mouth water just thinking about them. The heat was warm enough to clear out my sinuses, but was nowhere near the point of being ‘too much.’ Besides, if you’re buying a product with a label that says ‘Dinamita’ on it, you should expect to feel a little burn. Nacho Picoso’s are absolutely smothered in the powder that flavors them, and your fingers will be getting a temporary dye job from it. Fun to lick off though!

In a break from tradition, these Doritos are rolled into a tube-like shape. I really liked this as well, if for no other reason than it being unique and different (at least in the US). The corn chip has a nice crunch to it, and seems to resist breaking much better than the standard triangle variety. If Frito-Lay is smart, they’ll market Doritos Dinamita Nacho Picoso to the fullest extent, as this is an astounding snack food. Should you try these? ‘YEA!’ I can’t wait to get my hands on another bag.
