Doritos Sour Cream & Onion
I saw these Doritos in a store a year or two ago and have regretted not picking them up ever since. They've finally come back, and I nabbed them with an amount of greed that surprised even myself.
Unfortunately, the payoff wasn't huge.
These aren't a perfect translation of sour cream & onion potato chips because they can't be; the exact flavors used for potatoes don't exactly harmonize the same way with corn. Unfortunately, I don't think Doritos' choice of flavors harmonize with corn either.
These amount to more like a Cool Ranch Lite than sour cream & onion. There's plenty of onion in the seasoning, and also a good bit of supporting herbs and spices, many of which are found in the brand's Cool Ranch variety. There's also the light cheese/sour milk powder on there to simulate the sour cream, but overall it tastes like something other than sour cream and onion. While moderately tasty, A die hard SC&O fan would find these very disappointing.
Doritos Sour Cream & Onion:- Good
Original Doritos Nacho Cheese(for comparison):- Great
