Doritos has introduced a new Fiery Habanero flavor to its Dinamita line, which already included Chili Limon and Nacho Picoso. The new flavor combine habaneros, chilies, and red peppers. With a Scoville rating between 100,000 and 350,000 SHU, the habanero ranks among the hottest peppers in the world.
So how were the chips? We conducted a small taste test amongst the editors in the office. The general consensus was this: If you don’t enjoy spicy foods, you absolutely will not enjoy these chips. Even those who enjoyed the spice found it was difficult to eat more than a few chips at a time, so buyers beware.
For lovers of spicy snacks who choose to take on the challenge, Doritos Dinamita Fiery Habanero is available in select markets throughout the U.S. in three sizes. Suggested retail prices are as follows: $0.50 for a 1.125-ounce bag, $1.49 for a four-ounce oz bag, and $2.99 for the 9.25-ounce bag.
