Beth, Doritos only has one 'i'

The week of Beach Mission, I discovered a few things about my friend Beth that some people may consider worrying. I certainly found some of them shocking. I mean, what 17 year old British girl has neither listened to Bohemian Rhapsody or played Scrabble? However, most relevant to the next question, Beth calls Doritos, Doritios.... Yes, note that extra 'i'....

What’s wrong with Doritos, anyway?

When I first read this question I didn't really think there was anything wrong with Doritos. I mean, I like them, they're a good party snack and they're good for sharing but I hadn't really thought much more about them besides 'sure, I like them.' However, now that I come to think of it, there are a number of issues with Doritos....

  • You always get the flavourings all over your fingers. What is with that? Can they not flavour them in a way where you finish eating and you don't go 'ah, I should probably go wash my hands. Although I'd lick it off, but then I should still go wash my hands cause I'll have spit-covered hands...'
  • The flavouring dust also means it's eat or do something else, for a snack-y type food, it makes it really hard to eat them whilst doing something else. Like playing cards...
  • Why have I never seen small bags of Doritos? It's as if they only want you to eat them when you're with friends and never as a small snack by yourself.
  • The dip jars are always too big compared to one bag of Doritos. One bag of Doritos should have a one bag size of branded dip to go with it.
  • According to Wikipedia, the Sour Cream and Onion flavour was discontinued in the 80s. I like sour cream and onion flavour....
  • 'Dorito' means 'little golden' in Spanish but most Doritos are more orange than golden..
  • .... I think I'm clutching at straws now...

  1. sorry, i didn't mean to ruin doritos for you. my bad.

    technical note: your last post said '11 down', and this one jumped to '13 down'. what happened to 12?

  2. I remember when you could get Pizza flavour Doritos. They were brilliant and it's a shame that they have not done them since.

  3. i now feel i ought to comment on the fact that you've changed '13 down' to '12', just so my previous comment doesn't look strange and inaccurate compared to the updated text... 8p
