Confirmed sighting: Doritos Chilli Heatwave flavour
Posted: 20:52 Tue 18-03-2003. Price: 40p. Location: Bond St, London. Nutritional unusualness: See below.
Snackspot reports: Basically Doritos which taste of spicy tomato Monster Munch. Though I've just spotted that the ingredients say that they're actually "Extreme Chilli Heatwave Flavour Corn Chips *with sweetener*" [my emphasis] and contain "a source of phenylalanine" (ie the artificial sweetener aspartame - as pushed through US approval by the young Donald Rumsfeld and, until recently, manufactured by Monsanto). Is this common practice in crisps nowadays? The flavour is currently being promoted by a new TV campaign featuring Kelly Osbourne - and the loathsome assemblage of sub-humanity apparently known as "the Friendchips gang". I don't know if these clowns will appeal to Walkers' target consumers of "Young males 12-20 years who demand strong flavours" and "18-40 years who enjoy sharing milder flavours" - but they scare the hell out of me.

Comment: Crikey, there's a lot of scary aspartame/ Nutrasweet pages out there - this one even makes some - admittedly tenuous - connections to the Jonestown massacre and chemical warfare: http://presidiotex.com/nutrapoison/article.html . On a more positive note, I haven't spotted it in any other crisps so far, though I haven't got round to checking Pringles...
