PepsiCo Canada has launched Doritos Roulette, a new flavour edition in which most of the chips are nacho cheese flavored, while others are insanely hot.
Consumers are calling the chips dangerous and a solid slap in the face and hundreds of people are posting videos of themselves eating the chips on YouTube.
Aside from the spice, these chips look and taste just like a regular Nacho Cheese Dorito, according to a review by the blog The Impulsive Buy. So you really have no idea what youre going to get until you pop it in your mouth.
The new flavor was launched in Canada last month. A PepsiCo Canada spokesman told us he couldnt comment on whether they would be coming to the U.S....

I like to eat my food ,not have my food eat me
Sounds like a recipe for a lawsuit when someone goes freaky-deaky over a chip.
Some of those user comments have labeled the “insanely hot” claim as pure hype.
This seems series, and possibly hugh.

If it wasn’t PepsiCo, I’d think it was a cool idea. (No pun intended)
Not in Canada- our courts enforce “loser pays”. Lots of good stuff here that you can’t get in the USA anymore.
Meh. “Harry Potter” did it first (and no doubt other foods have gone this route in the past as well).
The “hot” chips are likely no spicier than the regular “hot” chips Doritos produces. They only seem hot in contrast to the “regular” chips they’re mixed with. So long as the bag is labeled properly, there should be no reason anyone would have grounds for a lawsuit.
LOL Mark Steyn wrote a priceless column about his Kinders getting confiscated at the border.
Unfortunately, I’m in California, or I’d burp happily and ask for seconds.
They’re doing a test of two flavors here (nationwide?) No indication whatsoever as to what you’re buying in to. They are in silver bags, could be a new cheese flavor, pepper, or dog turds. Not buying them
Great idea. I buy these dried hot peppers from a local Italian restaurant. Most are mild, but occasionally you get a hot one. You deal with it. The family has accepted this as a sort of tradition. Don’t try if you don’t like hot.
“processed food” and “hot” never go together, those flavors are always candy assed...
Some are hot, the rest are just the normal level of horrible food.
Anyone remember the lawsuit filed by the pregnant woman, who claimed she got pregnant because she thought the spermicide jelly was meant to be eaten?
I am jealous. Loser Pays would start to fix the US overnight.
I got Mr Kitty yesterday. He hates hot food.
I was opening a can of chipolte in adobo for my spicy Dr Pepper pulled pork and a little bit of the sauce splashed on my cheek. I called him to come and give me a kiss to lick it off. He did so without asking what it was until AFTER he gave me a kiss.
Okay, it was a bit mean, but it wasn’t THAT hot. And he managed to get to the sink and get his mouth under the faucet in just a few steps.
I admit to putting tobasco on my nacho cheese Doritos
Check Snopes, it was a story invented by a tabloid.
