Wasabi! Doritos! TOGETHER!
Spotted at the City of Industry Costco location: Giant bags of Wasabi-flavored Doritos. Are they delicious? And are they really that nuclear green color?

Yes. And yes.

Once you get past the neon hue of the chips, the wasabi flavoring was actually surprisingly pleasant--not too pungent, not too spicy, with a similar taste to that of wasabi peas. Meaning, yeah, you can eat more than a handful at a time without getting sick of the taste.

Wasabi Doritos were, up until recently, an exclusive in Japan that made a brief cameo stateside a few years ago--the flavor actually had its own Facebook group calling for its return to America.

Just the latest development on the snack front at Costco--remember, Tapatio-flavored Fritos are also now up for grabs.

the local Costco carried them for a while, just long enough to get addicted to them.  Now I don't see them anymore.  Help!!   I'm in Denver CO

We're on our 2nd HUGE bag in two weeks and already worried about not having them around for good! Amazing flavor, just the right amount of wasabi to satisfy a spicey craving mid-afternoon.

Geez. I remember when Doritos came in *just three* flavors: Original, Nacho Cheese (which was considered oh-so-delish and exotic in 1975), and Taco.

These sound good and I'll look for 'em along with some Adult Chocolate Milk, but wish they'd bring back the Taco flavor.

Blackrufus: oops, you're right (checked Amazon). Guess I should look someplace besides WalMart. ;-)

This is a fucking brilliant idea. But I ain't risking my life drivin' to Industry for 'em.
