[Food Review] Sunchips Monterey Jack and Sundried Tomato

Here’s a portion of David Roshinski’s review on DoesItHitTheSpot.com:

At first when chip hit my tongue, I got a rush of salt pour over my taste buds. This settles quickly as I get a lot of the flavors I mentioned from the smell. As chips go, they use a sun dried tomato powder to season them and the powder almost always contains buttermilk which gives the chips a nice tang. Now as far as the cheese flavor goes that’s where I was confused. Upon tasting the chip I got a really salty cheese flavor, no pun intended.

Monterey jack is more of a mild cheese that has a good flavor but is low on the salt scale. Looking at the package however I read there are many cheese used as seasoning: monterey, cheddar, monterey again, mozzarella, and blue cheese. Wu! That is a lot of cheeses. It is that combination that gave my taste buds some confusion. It still had a great flavor overall with the added nutty and grain flavors on the back part of the mouth after the salt and tang.

Doritos has really been on quite the roll as of late. They kicked things off with the stellar Tacos at Midnight and Last Call Jalapeno Poppers, the first two flavors of their now renowned Late Night Line of Chips, and then built off of that success with All Nighter Cheeseburger, another stellar chip that literally blew my mind.

However, I was pleasantly surprised to hear about Mr. Dragon’s Fire Chips, a very strange product with an even stranger name. Equipped with the Japanese treat known as wasabi — a very spicy seasoning somewhat comparable to American hot sauce (though not really, more on that in a moment), can I chock up another high score for Doritos?
