Doritos Ultimate Cheddar
Taste test: This new Doritos flavor jumped out as an oddity, because we've seen (and indeed eaten) it before. The story begins with the Blaze flavor that appeared in early 2018. This hot flavor was followed late in the same year by a Collisions version that combined Blaze with Ultimate Cheddar. That's where it got weird — at the time, there was no such flavor as Ultimate Cheddar, at least as a stand-alone flavor. It's hard to judge individual flavors in bags of Collisions, because some of the flavor rubs off on the other chips. But now — for a "Limited Time Only" — they're selling the Ultimate Cheddar in its own bag. Beyond the words Ultimate Cheddar, there was no marketing copy to explain what it meant.
The chips looked a whole lot like Nacho Cheese Doritos, with a similar range of orange and yellow, but maybe a bit more to the yellow end of the spectrum. We crunched in to find a nice cheese flavor, not a vast change from Nacho Cheese, but it did seem slightly less zesty, so maybe things were balanced a bit more toward cheese and away from spices. Not sure there's a big demand for this slight change from Nacho Cheese.
