Review: Doritos Fiery Habanero Dinamitas & DOG UNIS. DOG UNIS. DOG UNIS.
Junk Food Nation, if you watch minor league baseball, like I (….oh who am I kidding? I don’t) you know that minor league teams do all kinds of crazy things to get butts in the seats. They’ll have amazing food promotions, they’ll have concerts, they’ll do kids nights, etc. Or they’ll do crazy uniforms!!! They’ll have Star Wars themed nights, for example. But this…THIS…takes the cake.
The El Paso Chihuahuas (yes, that’s a real team) will, for one special night, wear DOG UNIS. Observe:
These uniforms are for the Chihuahuas “Bark at the Park” night on Aug. 3 – they’ll be auctioned off after the game with the proceeds going to the Humane Society of El Paso. So that’s nice.
So what do you think, Junk Food Nation? Awesome? Horrible? DAAAWH LOOKIT THAT FACE. Tell me in the comments below.
Today’s junk food: Doritos Fiery Habanero Dinamitas!
Yeah, I know these Doritos Fiery Habanero Dinamitas came out a while ago…Chip Review covered them back in February. But I hadn’t seen them ANYWHERE….until I walked into that same 7-11 over the weekend, and there they were! Nice.
As a sidenote, it didn’t help that all the 7-11’s near my place closed…so maybe these chips had been lying in wait the whole time?
Doritos Fiery Habanero Dinamitas are rolled to explode with flavor. I’ve tried two other versions of Dinamitas before – the Nacho Picoso and the Chile Limon ones. Loved the Nacho Picoso, hated the Chile Limon.
So, this 4 oz bag has four servings? This whole bag ought to be ONE serving, no?
Doritos Fiery Habanero Dinamitas don’t actually list habanero as one of the ingredients, opting instead for “spices.” Well, that’s oddly general, Doritos. Thanks for the ambiguity.
Doritos Fiery Habanero Dinamitas look like (no surprise) rolled up Doritos with plenty of dark orange/red powder dusting them. When I smelled the bag, I could smell cheese and spices…not quite stinging my nostrils, but close. I expected these to taste like Spicy Nacho Doritos…but spicier? We’ll see…
WHOA. These Doritos Fiery Habanero Dinamitas were SPIIIIICCCCYYYYYYY. WOOO.
The Dinamitas themselves were as expected; they were rolled up Doritos, and the resultant chip an extra crunchy but crunched away in large flaky chunks as I chewed. The underlying corn flavor was standard.
But the flavor? For spice lovers, these were OUTSTANDING. I mean, to describe it simply, these were cheesy with an HEAPING LOAD OF KICK ON TOP. The burn wasn’t there at first – the rolled up chip just sort of tasted cheesy and tangy when I first placed it in my mouth – but as soon as I chewed, the spices just started to spread and coat everything. That’s when the burn started to grow and grow and grow, and I felt like it was everywhere! I kept trying to shift the mouthful of chips in my mouth as I chewed to lessen the spicy flavor, but succeeded only in spreading the fire to various corners of my mouth.
The best part about this chip (for me, at least) – NO LIME. No added fruity flavor to “help” offset the spice. Now, I recently has a good STAX experience where the habanero flavor had a tiny bit of citrus added, and I liked it. But these were NOTHING like the Chile Limon Dinamitas, where I felt the lime flavor was just gross. These Doritos Fiery Habanero Dinamitas – just pure spice and cheese. That’s it. I’m so glad I found these.
PURCHASED AT: 7-11
