New Doritos Jacked Smoky Chipotle BBQ & A Bad April Fools Day Experience
Happy April Fools Day, Junk Food Nation. I really enjoy this holiday, but I must admit, it hasn’t always gone well for me in the past. My Freshmen Year of college, our class president played an email prank on us. He sent an email on this day indicating that our upcoming room draw process, due to budget cuts or something equally absurd, was cancelled, and that rooms would be randomly selected, etc. Naturally this caused a huge uproar. An hour later, he sent a followup email, indicating that we had been pranked. I think he had some hundreds of emails and voicemails to delete from that interim hour, but he had indeed gotten us good.
I thought this was HILARIOUS, so I decided to follow his lead. In my head, this SOUNDED funny: I wrote all of my high school friends telling them I had “gotten drunk the night before and subsequently slept with a random girl and gotten her pregnant.” Funny, right? (cue the audience: grooooan). Oh, I know. Well, NOW I know.
So I sent my followup email an hour later, indicating “APRIL FOOLS! Miss you guys!” Yeah….it didn’t elicit the same hilarity I thought it would. I received many angry emails in return, telling me that unexpected pregnancy was no joking matter, and they were really surprised and disappointed in me. Like, REALLY disappointed in me. ANGRY EMAILS.
Help me, Junk Food Nation – what do you think? Had I overstepped the line? Or were they just overly sensitive? Granted I did this joke over ten years ago…in today’s environment, with the shit that’s on TV and Youtube, this would be nothing…right? I dunno. Tell me in the comments below.
Anyways, onto today’s junk food. I reviewed the New Doritos Jacked Enchilada Supreme Chips yesterday… and you didn’t think I’d go to the grocery store and only buy ONE of the TWO new Doritos Jacked flavors, did you? Clearly you don’t know me…today’s junk food: New Doritos Jacked Smoky Chipotle BBQ!!!
Anybody else remember the segment on Sunday NFL Countdown / Monday Night Countdown where they used to show big hits during the day’s football games, and each of the idiot heads in the studio would yell in unison, “He got…JACKED! UP!”? Of course, the NFL asked them to knock it off because they were celebrating big hits, something the NFL apparently did not want. I blame the JACKED UP segment for the current bounty system scandal.
I already showed you yesterday how big and thick these JACKED chips were in comparison to regular Doritos. When I opened the bag of the New Doritos Jacked Smoky Chipotle BBQ chips, I could smell a slight smoke scent, in addition to a slight tingle to my nostrils reflecting perhaps the chipotle peppers.
For those who love BBQ flavored chips, the taste of these New Doritos Jacked Smoky Chipotle BBQ chips will satisfy you. Definitely huge crunch. The thicker and bigger chip gives a more substantial bite.
The first taste is an immediate sweet sweet barbecue flavor…it’s bold and has a lot of different aspects to it. It tastes of brown sugar, garlic, onion, all wrapped up in a tomatoey blanket. Not sure if I necessarily get a meaty taste, like the description indicated, but the taste of a good BBQ sauce was there. Then the smoke – definitely noticeable. As you breathe in and out as you chew, the smoke flavor comes out to mix with everything.
Finally, halfway through the chew, the burn from the chipotle peppers starts to kick in, and then it keeps kicking. These chips have a very nice afterburn…I’m used to spice, but these will make anyone’s mouth tingle with peppery delight. In fact, after eating a chip, the tingle lingers for a good few minutes.
All in all a VERY satisfying and kicked up version of a BBQ chip. While myself, I don’t LOVE BBQ chips, generally, I’d recommend these to anyone. Doritos Jacked – I’d say you are two for two! Translation? MAKE MORE JACKED FLAVORS!
