Taste test: This version of Doritos from Taiwan came in a very shiny bag with the same logo as the recent American versions (but a very different look from the Spicier Nacho! version that we reviewed many years back).
The triangular chips had a pretty typical Doritos look, but with a light orange color and just a spotty application of orange cheese powder that we've seen applied more heavily on other flavors. I crunched in to find the usual crisp Doritos crunch and an immediate kick of heat — ironically, far more heat than Spicier Nacho — with little to no cheese noticeable on most bites. When I ate several chips in a row, some major heat really snuck up on me, as it was suddenly hot enough that I had to run to the kitchen to get some chocolate milk. Even after swigging some of that, quite a lot of heat returned. Spicy indeed!
