Taste test: This new size/flavor of Doritos, introduced along with the Jacked Smoky Chipotle BBQ variety, claimed to have "jacked" things to a new level of intensity.
Like the other kind, these had a larger-than-usual triangular shape, with a shade of orange that was a bit darker than standard Doritos while still being bright. The chips really were huge, so the size was impressive. (They were absolute monsters compared with Mini Doritos!) The "jacking" made the chips thicker and crunchier, though less crisp. The taste was good, as it combined cheese, taco powder and a bit of heat, with a generous amount of flavor powder. I wouldn't say the taste was anything special, and it didn't break any new ground, but it was good and lived up to the Doritos standard.

Smell test: Smells like a mix of taco powder and regular Doritos. But more taco powder.
