New! Doritos Dinamita Chile Limon & Humpday Sports Roundup: NFL Schedule, UniWatch, and More
Junk Food Nation, it’s humpday, so let’s discuss some sports snippets:
1) The NFL Schedule was released last night, and there are plenty of juicy matchups on the schedule. Two jumped out at me:
a: Denver Broncos at New England Patriots, 10-07-2012: Tom Brady vs. Peyton Manning, in the regular season, after a long hiatus? For some reason, I feel like I haven’t seen this matchup in forever, and I can’t wait. It’s like when they finally made Aliens vs. Predator…sort of.
b: San Francisco 49ers at New Orleans Saints, 11-25-2012: The Gregg Williams game? I can’t wait to hear the taunts, and to see how many burning effigies of Gregg Williams there are in the stands. The broadcasters shouldn’t pot up the sound too far on this game – you’re likely to hear cursing throughout.
2) The Spurs trounced the Lakers last night 112-91, and looking back on my NBA playoff predictions, I wonder: How could I have been so wrong on both Boston and San Antonio? I marked them down as too old; meanwhile, the Spurs have the best record in the West, and Boston is leading the pack in the Atlantic Division. Did I think Kevin Garnett’s or Tim Duncan’s knees and back would hold up? Nope, and that’s clearly where I went wrong.
3) Thanks again to ESPN’s UniWatch for linking back to my post about the StrasBurger earlier this week! It’s a tiny mention, but I’m a huge fan of the UniWatch, so I basically danced around my office for three straight minutes.
Onto today’s junk food: new Doritos Dinamita Chile Limon!
Doritos Dinamita Chile Limon are the sister snack to yesterday’s Doritos Dinamita Nacho Picoso, and this bag was also purchased at 7-11. I’m very VERY skeptical of any snacks flavored with lime. I’ve spoken about it on this blog before – I don’t like those Hint of Lime Tostitos, and I wasn’t super crazy about the Tapatio and Lime Ruffles.
My friend Neil mentioned that he had purchased these Doritos Dinamita Chile Limon, and said after he ate some he threw the bag away because they were inedible. Not a great sign.
This bag is a little too EXXXXTREEEMME for me. I mean explosions and limes? It’s like they just Photoshopped the lime on there because they had to.
The perfect detonation of spicy chile with lime twist….really, Doritos Dinamita Chile Limon? Is that what this is? I’m skeptical…
It bothers me that there is more Red 40 artificial color in this snack than natural flavors…never a good start.
Doritos Dinamita Chile Limon were startling to see when I opened the bag, because I don’t think I’d ever seen a bag so full of ….RED. These tightly rolled suckers were RED RED RED. Flourescent RED. Wow. No real distinct smell, but the color made me afraid to put it in my mouth.
I ate some of these Doritos Dinamita Chile Limon, and must agree with Neil – I really didn’t like these. At all. At all at all at all at all. Wow, where to begin?
The spice is a bit too high for something that doesn’t really have cheese flavoring. Mainly you taste spice and chiles, and then the corn flavor comes through. Without some cheese creaminess to balance it out, the flavor of the chile was really strong and I didn’t like it. I’ve said it before – spice is a sensation, not a flavor.
And the lime was WAY too strong, and sooooo artificial tasting. And sweet, which was unexpected! It felt like I was eating spicy Froot Loops, to be honest. I really did not enjoy these one bit. Sorry, Doritos. I love you so much, typically. I spit these out 🙁 Like the Hot Sauce and Limon Corn Nut Chips, these will never go into my gullet again.
AND these Doritos Dinamita Chile Limon turned my fingers an unnatural RED color. See my logo? It’s ORANGE cheesy fingers, not red! This was just…this was just WEIRD.
