[Snack Review] Pizza Supreme Doritos

Purchased at: Kroger
Cost: $3.49 for an 11.5 oz bag

The Doritos brand has been on one hell of a hot streak with me lately, as every new product they release that I review (selecting which items to review is a scientific, random, and sporadic endeavor) receives a very high score. Just looking at the past few flavors through the Everyview archives, we see that Tacos at Midnight scored a 9.75, All Nighter Cheeseburger pulled a 9.5, and Mr. Dragon’s Firechips brought in a 9.0. I don’t care what company you are, that is impressive. Granted, there were plenty of flavors that were introduced to the market between Firechips and Pizza Supreme that I wholly neglected, but that’s not exclusively because I’m an awful reviewer. I’m also broke.

However, walking through the aisles of Kroger, where I am sadly employed, and looking for something to eat along side my soggy and stale (yes, at the same time) chicken sandwich I bought from the deli, I came across these and was finally excited to review something again. If you can’t tell by the lack of posts that has gone on not only this site, but Everyview and Caffeine Critic as well, I’ve been in a bit of a lull lately.

Well, that was like three weeks ago, and I still haven’t reviewed them. Thankfully I stopped caring about my homework assignments today, and this is probably the best way to avoid responsibility while still feeling productive.

Review:

I’m not going to lie. I would have ideally preferred if this new flavor of chips came emblazoned with the “Late Night” sub logo across the front of the bag, a billboard that would have signified I was in for an insanely tasty treat. The “Late Night” line of Doritos uses natural flavoring to achieve maximum snack food potential. You see, they essentially freeze dry all of the ingredients that go into whatever flavor they’re making, turn it into a fine powder, and sprinkle it over each triangular corn chip. It’s a miraculous process that yields mystifying results.

These, however, are just regular Doritos, so I was expecting the standard, artificial pizza flavor. You know the one. It tastes nothing like pizza but you’ve been conditioned, by potato chip after salty potato chip, to recognize that specific blend of salts and flavors to accept it as pizza flavor. Well, that’s exactly what these are. And while also very similar to every other “pizza” flavored snack on the market, Pizza Supreme Doritos are better than a lot of them for one reason; they don’t skimp on the seasoning here. This makes a treat that is vastly similar to, say, Pizza Pringles, only much more flavorful.

Does it Hit the Spot?

Yeah, they do. While not necessarily great, Pizza Supreme Doritos are certainly very good. They are very salty and very heavily flavored with whatever spice and seasoning mixture makes that good 0l’ artificial pizza flavoring that so many brands of snacks have used, a truth that makes the newest flavor of Doritos a slight slice about the rest, simply because they use more flavoring. Still, no matter how hard any brand every tries, no one will ever topple Combos, who offers the all-time best “pizza” flavored snack on the market. Try to argue with me. You can’t.

    I think they taste more like Taco Doritos, not pizza.

    Are you sadly employed there, or employed there, sadly?

    Probably a combination of the two.

    Pizza Doritos were amazing. Pizza combos were my number 1 in the pizza flavoring until I discovered pizza doritos.. They’ve discontinued the pizza dorito… I’ve tried to get my fix elsewhere, but pringles doesn’t do as good as a job.
