Doritos Nachos – Detailed Review
Price + Packaging
Going hand in hand with the flavor tag, these nachos are offered in a red pack. One pack holds 78 grams of product and is priced at ₹ 50/-. This has a shelf life of six months.
These nachos are made using Corn (77%), Edible vegetable oil (palm oil), Seasoning (Maltodextrin, Spices and condiments, Sugar, iodised salt, Milk solids, Acidity regulators (330), Cheese, Dehydrated beetroot, Yeast extract, Nature identical flavoring substances, Anticaking agent (551), Flavor enhancer (627, 631)), Color (124)
Aroma + Appearance
These are thin, almost even-looking, triangular-shapes pieces of nachos. They had an obviously unnatural looking deep amber hue. In addition to the spice, we observed notes of cheese in the aroma. Each nacho was dusted generously with the powder.
Taste + Texture
The texture gets a thumbs up. These nachos had a great crunch, which spoke of the freshness too.
PS- with salsa or crushed and added in a burger or wrap- this would elevate your dish.
Coming to the flavor- these are primarily cheese-flavored nachos. The chilli heat only hits you towards the end. The complex but desirable flavor of cheese paired with chilli was tied together by a subtle tang which was present throughout.
These nachos are not mildly spiced, neither too overpowering. They aren’t something that would get your eyes watery and nose running, but pairing them with a mild dip/salsa would bring down the spice a bit.
- Justifies the flavor tag
- Nice balance of flavors
- Visually appetizing
- Made with 77% corn
From fancy platters to quick snacks, even something to add a crunch to your wraps and burgers- Doritos Sizzlin Hot Nachos are a must try.
