Frito-Lay, more specifically Doritos, have never been averse to taking risks. From Doritos 3Ds to far out flavors, you can count on seeing something new hit shelves every few months. Their latest offering, Doritos Locos Tacos Doritos (there’s a mouthful) (sorry) are meant to taste like tacos, and by all accounts, they do.

The question that these chips and the erstwhile Doritos Late Night Cheeseburger flavor begs: do we really want chips that taste like seasoned ground beef?

While you’re pondering that (I don’t expect it to take long) check out these awful flavor variations of Doritos and other well known chips (some from the U.S., many from abroad):


Mozzarella Stick & Marinara Pringles

Lime Lay’s

Tuna Salad Doritos

Blueberry & Hazelnut Pringles

Cheeseburger Cheetos

Can’t find a picture, but I promise they existed.

I’ve had the white chocolate Peppermint Pringles. They weren’t that bad. Couldn’t polish off a can in a sitting though.

One review I read said they taste like toothpaste on a chip. I was intrigued when they came out. There were cinammon and some other kind too if I remember correctly.

Everybody I knew swore those Ketchup & the lemon/lime chips were the best. EVERYTHING on this list made me gag.

“Lay” off the Ketchup chips. I liked those back in the day. So many more flavors I’d choose above them nowadays though…

I just don’t need meat flavored chips. TUNA flavored on the other hand…

The catsup chips were oka and I seem to remember having burger flavored doritos at some point but most of these just sound disgusting

Its amazing how different our tastes are across the world. Im sure Asians think we’re weird for liking nacho cheese and ranch on everything

Cheeseburger Doritos were the most disgusting snack food I’ve ever put in my mouth. It kinda makes sense, but man oh man, it tasted like vomit laced with ass.

I remember the pickle flavor being too prominent. When you eat a burger, there isn’t pickle in EVERY bite
