DORITOS® JACKED™ Ranch Dipped Hot Wings Flavored Tortilla Chips

in Should this exist?  · 
 · 

It's a great unknown what our fascination with Doritos and Taco Bell is. If I was to venture to guess, I'd notch it down to whole fascination with the bizarre, equivalent to how we enjoy The Twilight Zone.

Perverse speculations aside…

The DORITOS® JACKED™ Ranch Dipped Hot Wings Flavored Tortilla Chips might be the worst product name I can remember seeing, and I mean that quite literally. It is, if nothing else, the longest name I've seen. The idea, however, is at least somewhat commendable.

No longer do you need to cook up chickens, squeeze out ranch from a bottle, and dip the former in the latter. These Doritos have you covered. Some might say they're downright practical.

Well intentions aside, the flavor has little going for it. Shocking, right‽ The chips taste like Doritos, with dusty coatings of powdered Frank's and ranch. The kinda stuff you would find in the potential-nuclear-war-rations aisle.

I'm not necessarily saying you need to wear a tinfoil hat to enjoy these chips, but then, I kinda am.

And in that sense, DORITOS® JACKED™ Ranch Dipped Hot Wings Flavored Tortilla Chips probably should exist. They're not for me, and probably not for you, unless you're expecting North Korea to live up to its promises.

If they do, you and Frito Lay will have the deserved last laugh.

The #summerofsandwich, and why you should partake

Well, it might sadden you to learn that the Great Burger Chase is winding down, but then, we never said we'd try every burger in town.

Fear not, however, as we have a replacement will start June 1st; a replacement that will involve you.

During a strategy session with the man who inspired us to do Spiceavore, the Wing King, a concept came up which can be summed up with one hashtag: #summerofsandwich. And it is exactly what you would expect it to be.

This summer, you will eat sandwiches, take photos of them, and post the on Twitter or Instagram with the name of the restaurant, and the hashtags #summerofsandwich and #spokane. (The city hashtag is important, as this probably will be a national, nay, global event.)

As the summer goes on, we will gather the suggested sandwiches and post round-ups of them. Because, really, who doesn't want sandwich recommendations? (The terrorists, probably.)

It's a simple concept, and it's an informative event. And this is your chance to put Spokane on the sandwich map. Who knows, maybe the Wing King (which is starting to sound scarily similar to the Yellow King) himself will visit Spokane, just to try one of your sandwich recommendations?

So, starting June 1st: sandwich tweets/Instagrams, marked with #summerofsandwich, #spokane, and restaurant name. Be part of an event that will likely change the fate of a nation.

Updated to show the correct hashtag: #summerofsandwich.
