in France they got a flavor called sweet barbecue....definately my favorite Dorito ever. I should have brought 50 bags back home. they also got plain doritoes over there. But yea, the barbecue ones are awesome, i love eating a dorito with NO taste of cheese in it.

Gibbles had a bacon flavored chip too but they're gone as well, DRAT


I grew up in England where they have all kinds of strange flavoured chips (or crisps as they're called there.) Smoky Bacon was one of my favourites, as well as Roast Chicken believe it or not. Anyway, not far from where I live is a British grocery store, and they carry them, so I can have my fix whenever I want. Here is a link to the stores site, where you can buy some if you want to try...

All doritos taste pretty much the same regardless of the "flavor" they claim to be.

Well, after waiting almost 25 years to taste Dorito Taco chips again, I finally got my chance. When I last contacted Frito Lay, they told me the Taco chips were now just sold in the midwest. So, a couple of weeks ago my son had to go to an automotive training school in Appleton, WI. I asked him to look around for them in the grocery store (you can see, they are never out of my mind). Well, he found them and bought me home 2 bags. I couldn't wait ! Boy, was I disappointed! They say you can never go home again, and I guess it's the same with finally eating something that you haven't eaten in years, but they just aren't the same as I remember them. They seem kind of bland. They were never spicy hot, but they had a nice powdery taco seasoning on them that was good. They must have changed the recipe or something, or maybe my tastebuds have dulled over the past 25 years, because they are not the same as I remember.

On Friday at my local Wal-Mart, I came across the Taco flavored Doritos. It was in a special packaging and being touted as a "Back by popular demand" flavor! They also had the Four Cheese flavor. I was kinda leary to buy the Taco flavor after reading the previous posts and how the flavor (or others' personal taste buds) might've changed since its original release. I'm hoping to come across a small bag to try them or hear from others on here. Anyone else come across them yet?

Serve them with either of these two quality beverages...Russ




When they originally came they seemed to have more powder on them. And some of them had a lot of flavoring on them. The new ones are lightly seasond and as always not as good as the original.

when I was a kid in the 70's, phila suburbs, theses were my hands down fav.
- finally found them in ohio last year. I agree - simalar, but not the same. they now
contain cheese, which they did not before (I think) and I beleive this os the major flavor difference.

- man I used to love those chips !!

We've got them here and I agree they just about all taste the same. The kid's like taco salads made with them.

No-not in my opinion,Mellow. I have tried them( and every other taco Dorito they keep coming up with)and they are just not the same as the beloved ones from the 70s.

Hi
The topic of Taco Flavor Doritos has fascinated me on an off for the last two years.
I liked the Tacos at Midnight but as many have found they are not exactly like the way we remember the "originals".
I am in central coast California.
The closest I have found to the Taco flavor seasoning are sometimes sold in health food stores as a bulk item or sometimes in a health food store called "Pico De Gayo' flavor.
I have found that regionally, there are specific Doritos products that are not equally available to everyone.
I found two bags for $3.99 of the Limited Edition Taco flavor in a similar "Classic" bag design at 7/11. Only one in the area that I have seen.
The Limited Edition as pictured in an above post seem like heavy sour cream cheese sort of flavor. There is a very slight, or subtle chili powder flavor.
They aren't bad but I couldn't eat many of them until I would have to stop.

I also wanted to mention that I remember the corn chips were different in the originals. I remember the Taco flavor and the non flavored, "Plain" chips, both were quite yellow and harder, sharper and with larger bubbles than todays Doritos.
I think we get a lot more variety today, and perhaps sacrifice some food quality.

I have an image of the original bag but am not allowed to embed a link for a month.
Maybe the Admin would wave the restriction.

That limited bag brought back memories. My mom took a shine to those around '70 that turned me on to them. I do remember the plain and taco flavor of the time as well. What nobody has mentioned unless it was a regional thing, was they actually introduced an improved version of the taco flavor (`73-`74 ?) that was promoted to have even more seasoning. These were variable. Sometimes they were so heavily seasoned they appeared a dark orange-brown color, other times they didn't appear to be anymore seasoned then the originally introduced. Your fingers would turn orange from the coating building up on your fingers when they were really heavily seasoned.

Well, I located them at Wal-Mart tonight, grabbed a bag for $2.50, and am eager to try them for the first time.  I may just use them to scoop up my Cheddar-Jack pimento cheese.  Interestingly, they were right next to a Pepsi Throwback display, so I grabbed a case of those, too.

While the bag looks like the original did, the chips don't look like they have much seasoning on them.
 
 While we're on the subject of the retro chips, wonder how many folks remember a great accessory that would go with several bags of these and a couple of those really cheap, store brand, onion and sour cream dips that used to sell for about 29 cents back then. They used to call them Mary Gins and some knockoffs were called Merry Gins. These were indespensible back then along with a plastic, cafeteria serving tray b4 working up an appetite for your chips and that freezer full of the cheap, 10" Totinio's frozen Pizza on Friday or Saturday nights while you were contemplating the molecular biology of the fibers in the shag rug on the floor with your friends. Need I mention the perfect pairing of Boone's Farm Apricot wine with the chips? 
Kirschner's Rock Concert or Midnight Special on late night TV with the Wolfman?
 
 Just wanted to add a little historical context to the reason the chips were sold and how they used to be eaten as head food to those of you too young or too old to recall partaking this weekend sacrament and the transubstantiation that occured after eating them.
 
To those of you that do remember the 'gins. Did any of you ever see or own any miniature hamsters that fit inside of them?
 
I didn't think so.

Bear in mind that's not a see-through bag, but rather a product picture on the bag, and what you're viewing here is a picture of a picture of a picture.    Looking forward to trying them, though.  I don't think I ever tried their taco chips from the '70s, so I won't have a flavor reference, but I certainly hope I enjoy them.
 
Don't remember Mary Gins, but I got my first thrill on Strawberry Hill.
