Taste test: This snack broke some new ground in the ever-expanding tubular tortillas category that was pioneered by Takis, as it finally brought the tube shape to America's most popular tortilla chip brand (though Tositos are made by the same company as Doritos, which has for years sold tubular tortilla under the Rollitos and Dinamita sub-brands). It was also the biggest bag of tubular tortillas that we've found.
Unlike those Doritos and Takis, these had no intense flavor, just salt on top of the corn (kind of like the Target store brand version, though that kind added some extra grains and seeds).
We crunched in to find that the taste was pretty much the same as regular salted Tositos, though the shape did give the chips a stronger crunch. We tried dipping them into various things at a New Year's party, and we found that it didn't work well with salsa, as there was nothing in the shape to really grab much of it. It worked better with some creamy or thicker dips (like the Tositos Queso Blanco dip pictured on the bag), as the stick was good and strong for digging deep into the dip, and that heavier stuff did adhere well to the Rolls. Pretty good, but you'll have to plan carefully for what to serve these with to ensure a quality dipping experience.
