Doritos Jalapeno Fire

Doritos Jalapeno Fire

When is a Jalapeño not a Jalapeno?

I don’t think these taste of Jalapeno, while I enjoyed them, the flavour was very good it is just not Jalapeño enough.  I suspect the name ‘Jalapeno Fire’ is used more because the general public know what a Jalapeno is and how hot they are (or not, depends on the consumer).

There is some chipotle in the ingredients list, and I know these are smoked red Jalapeños, but for me they have not imparted that essential Jalapeno flavour.

Doritos do make a excellent corn snack (I am careful not to call then tortilla chips), they are always good quality and well coated in the flavouring. The flavour of these is nice and smoky and the warmth does build as you eat them, I even had to keep my daughters hands out of the bag else I would have nothing to review.

Ingredients: Corn (Whole Maize Kernels),Sunflower Oil (18%), Jalapeno Fire Seasoning [Sugar, Lactose (from Milk), Salt, Flavouring, Citric Acid, Smoked Glucose, Cayenne Pepper, Spices, Herbs, Smoked Paprika, Fructose, Smoked Chilli (Chipotle Chilli), Colour (Paprika Extract), Smoke Flavouring], Vegetable Oil.

Pack kindly provided by doritos.co.uk

Would I buy them if they had not sent me a free bag, yes most defiantly, I am not always looking for a hot hot snack, and these are probably the best Doritos flavour I have tasted.

“best Doritos flavour I have tasted”

I have no hesitation giving them an 7.5/10 as an overall score, which was more than I expect to give them when they arrived, but this could easy been higher if they had been actually Jalapeño flavoured.

At £1.98 for 250g bag they are are the same price as normal Doritos, and at the moment you can get 2 bags for £3.50 in some retailers.

P.S. The bottle Pepsi Max Citus Freeze that came with them did not last long either….
