Review: Supreme Cheddar Doritos & HUGE JUNE TURKEY HILL DAILY ICE CREAM CONTEST & Horrible Screen Names
Junk Food Nation, a LOT to get to today! SO MUCH – so let’s get right to it!
Press play if you want to learn how to win ice cream EVERY WEEK DAY THIS MONTH!
So, did you get all that? I’m giving away free ice cream EVERY. SINGLE. WEEKDAY. this month. Yes, yes. You’re welcome.
I only had a few rules, one of which was: if you’re gonna enter, I have to be able to find you if you win. Don’t make this a scavenger hunt for me – I promise you, I get bored quickly and will just move onto the next winner.
SPEAKING OF SCREEN NAMES:
Like I said in the video, sometimes the daily contest will require you to comment on various blog posts. For those who comment on this blog, I read all your comments and try to respond to every single one, even if it sometimes takes me weeks to do so. Still, I get a chuckle when I see some of the names/email addresses of people who leave comments! I know some are probably fake, but I also know some aren’t.
For example, people with AOL.com addresses still? I KNOW those silly email address and screen names aren’t fake. When we’re kids and we pick these names, we think they’re awesome, right? “BuckeyeUltraFan99” or “$$MoneyTalks$$” or “<3princess_2001“….We think it’ll look awesome in our AOL chat, but when it comes time to create a resume, we’re scrambling to create a new Gmail account.
I swear I knew a girl once whose screen name was something like: *~*~*~*~(O–v–o)))~~~>lover69. What the hell IS that? Seems obscene. I’m pretty sure she was still using a Geocities account.
My own childhood wasn’t any different. For a good period of time, because I was really into fantasy sports, I owned the email address [email protected] Yep. I was ridiculous. AND APPARENTLY A NINJA.
TODAY’S JUNK FOOD: Supreme Cheddar Doritos!
Supreme Cheddar Doritos? How had I not seen these before my Doctor Sis picked them up for me at Costco? And just how big IS this bag??
Hmmm… lookin’ a little chubs these days, Junk Food Guy. Probably from eating too many Supreme Cheddar Doritos.
I mean, who DOESN’T need a 30 oz bag of Supreme Cheddar Doritos? Thirty ounces of pure corn munching goodness? Get it in me!
Supreme Cheddar Doritos smelled, well, like regular Doritos! They didn’t look QUITE as heavily powdered as Nacho Cheese Doritos, however. I’m used to seeing a LOT more red/orange on Doritos, and these looked sort of like Cool Ranch Doritos…but they weren’t Cool Ranch.
I munched WAAAAY too many of these Supreme Cheddar Doritos, and my verdict – PRETTY GOOD. Of course, it would be hard for me to find fault in ANY Dorito, but in all honesty, I did like these.
These Doritos had the standard light flaky crunch, and they had a great cheesiness despite looking like there wasn’t much powder. The cheesiness didn’t have the same amount of bite or tang as the Nacho Cheese variety, however. I don’t know if they lowered the amount of tomato powder in these as compared to the Nacho Cheese variety, but these were sort of muted when it came to any seasoned punch.
Instead, the flavor of these Doritos was all about the cheese. I tasted a lot of good general cheese flavor from the mix of cheddar and romano cheese powder. Didn’t quite remind me of a SHARP cheddar flavor, per se. Just a good, cheese flavor that sat on the chips. I tasted a nice savory flavor because of the added powders, but ultimately this chip was all about highlighting the cheese flavor.
Because there wasn’t as much punch with these chips as compared to the Nacho Cheese variety, I sort of tasted the corn chip MORE. This reminded me of how Doritos tasted back in the day, when the powder wasn’t as coated. I liked that a lot.
In the end, I give these thumbs up. In a time when companies are trying to figure out how to pump up flavors to extreme levels, I can appreciate a company trying to release at least ONE flavor that is more simple. Not sure if these are only available at Costco, but you can certainly find HUGE BAGS of them there.
PURCHASED AT: Costco
COST: ~ $6.00
