Doritos Jacked Boston Garlic Shrimp
Taste test: These Doritos from Taiwan took their enormous triangular shapes from the American "Jacked" Doritos flavor Ranch Dipped Hot Wings that we first found six years ago. They had a mustardy orange color with lots of dark spots and not much powder on the surfaces.
As for the "Boston Garlic Shrimp" flavor, I've lived near Boston most of my life, and I've never heard the term "Boston Garlic Shrimp." But I do like garlic shrimp, so I was eager to try it.
I crunched in to find a strong crunch and a spicy, garlicy flavor with some strong hints of shrimp, so it could definitely qualify generically as Garlic Shrimp, if not necessarily Boston Garlic Shrimp. There was some heat too, which got especially noticeable in the lingering aftertaste. Pretty good.
One interesting note was that the ingredients included Cerium Oxide, which I'd never seen listed before as a food ingredient (nor, for that matter, even heard of). Some Googling around found many references to Cerium Oxide being used for polishing glass — and no references at all to it being a food ingredient.
