Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: Walkers Doritos Flamin' Cheeseball/ Pizza Express Leggera range Confirmed sighting: Walkers Doritos Flamin' Cheeseball/ Pizza Express Leggera range
Posted: 19:35 Sun 10-May-2009. Price: Special offer, 1.00 (otherwise 1.49); 225g. Location: Tesco.
I'm not sure if this is the same "Fishface" who left a couple of comments here about 6 years ago, but he/she didn't have much to add about the Flamin' Cheeseball Doritos, other than: "Taste like a combination of Flamin' Hot and Nacho Cheese. Still bright orange."

The Pizza Express Leggera range, "Fishface" continues, costs 7.95-8.90 for a Margherita Leggera, Vitabella, or Gustosa, and comprises: "A pizza with a hole in the middle, which is filled with salad! 'The hole at the centre of each Leggera (Light) pizza is filled with a tasty salad of baby spinach, rocket, and santos tomatoes, finished with a drizzle of our light dressing.' Not too sure if any of these will tempt me away from their Classic menu..."

...Either way, both sound like a better bet than the Golden Wonder Sausage and Tomato flavour that "Jack 'The Whack' Harding" says he found in Cardiff, reporting: "I saw these in Home Bargains a few weeks ago. I had them and they tasted of tomato ketchup and stunk of sausages. It wasn't very pleasant. I don't recommend these to anyone who does not like tomato ketchup. Really, it's just Walkers Tomato Ketchup in another packet."

And back with cheese-like coverings: KFC is taking on McDonald's Ranch Snack Wrap and Little Western with Paninis: The Gourmet Lunch (in Spicy Chicken or Italian Chicken, 3.49) - obviously there's a debate over the correct plural, but I'd also like to hear opinions on Sainsbury's current use of "antipasties", which sound like what you have before (or instead of) Cornish pasties?

Comment: My girlfriend picked me up a packet of the Flamin' Cheeseball Doritos from the Gregg's on Rose Street in Edinburgh. The aspect of spicy cheese tortilla's appealed to me, but the flavour didn't. It could be that 1 packet wasn't enough, but I wasn't impressed with these.

Comment: That KFC Blogging site is strange. Very strange. I don't get why the guy writing it doesn't make it completely clear that he's an employee. He doesn't pretend he isn't, but he doesn't make it explicit. The tone of 'enthusiastic punter' feels somehow wrong, I'd be more comfortable with 'enthusiastic employee'.

Comment: Managed to pick up a big bag of these Flamin' Cheeseball Doritos from the Poundland in Edinburgh St Jamees' centre, and they're MUCH MORE enjoyable in a large quantity. Eve more enjoyable if your girlfriend isn't pinching some of them.

Comment: The new mystery flavour Doritos are definately curry of some sort. I'm maybe getting a hint of sizzling beef in there too, and a taste quite similar to Onion Bhaji....
