You know how usually when you grab a bag of Taco flavored chips, they don’t really taste like tacos? Instead they possess a flavor that has been established as the official artificial taco flavor for potato-based snacks? Well those days are over, my friends, and it’s all thanks to Doritos.
The new Late Night Tacos at Midnight flavored Doritos are pure evolution in the most evolutionary manner possible. No longer must we settle for tortilla chips that claim to be the flavor of authentic Mexican cuisine. No longer must we take the lies fed to us in the form of salt and artificial seasoning on top of a corn chip. We now have something to believe in, the future of all snacking. Ladies and gentlemen, this is evolution in the works.
Upon opening your first bag of Tacos at Midnight, you’ll be hit with a powerful and confusing aroma. You won’t have any idea where the scent of freshly made tacos is coming from, because all you have is a regular ol’ bag of taco flavored tortilla crisps. But lean a little bit closer and you’ll see that these roses smell like exactly what the bag says they are. Tacos.
But don’t dive in just yet, take a second to fully indulge in this delectable aroma. If you deeply analyze it, you can smell every aspect of your standard taco ingredients. Crisp, fresh lettuce. Juicy seasoned beef. Rich, creamy sour cream. It’s all there, folks. But no matter how good it smells, there’s no way a tiny chip can taste a delectable as an actual taco. Is there?
Yes there is. I told you this was evolution of snacking, did I not? Grab one Dorito, gently place it on your tongue, close your eyes, and chew. Notice the creamy, rich flavor of sour cream. The wonderful sensation of seasoned beef. The lettuce. Yes, you can actually taste the crisp lettuce that serves as a primary ingredient for any hard-shelled Mexican cuisine. And the corn tortilla itself, of course, provides that wonderful, crunchy taco shell sensation. This is easily the most delicious chip you’ve ever eaten, is it not? It is.
And fear not, good Christians. The Devil plays no part in this obviously magical creation. In fact, there isn’t even any magic involved. Well, maybe a little. So without Satanic assistance, how is the taste of an entire taco shrunk down and packed into one tiny corn tortilla?
Natural ingredients. Doritos takes all of those wonderful taco ingredients–cheeses, sour cream, seasoned beef, fresh lettuce–and grinds them up into a fine powder which is used to season crisp, crunchy chips. This process proves to be more than simply superior than the artificial attempts at recreating something as delicious as and flavorful as the taco. It proves to be the next step. A true revolution.
Are these new Doritos Late Night Tacos at Midnight really as good as I claim they are? Yes. They pack as much flavor as Taco Bell’s 5-Layer Nachos. Everyone I have ever shared with agrees with me, except Patricker, whose opinion is almost never valid anyway (he likes Lady Gaga… on purpose). Trust me, go out and grab yourself a bag of these new delicacies and indulge in what will easily be the shifting point in your life. You will believe.
