Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: Doritos Jalapeno Fire Confirmed sighting: Doritos Jalapeno Fire
Posted: 22:06 Sun 02-Oct-2011. Price: 55p. Location: Local shop on Main Street, Winchburgh.
As if we needed reminding that Walkers is owned by PepsiCo, here they are apparently "integrating flavour-matching with huge through-the-line support to drive penetration and trial in a normally quiet period" - ie, advertising hot Doritos in conjunction with cooling lime Citrus Freeze Pepsi Max, plus a competition to visit either Las Vegas or Iceland. Or, as possible first-time spotter "Phill Donaldson" puts it: Saw these advertised on a bottle of Diet Pepsi the night before I found them. Although they're OK, they have a slight beefy taste to them, and the Chilli Heatwave ones seem spicier.

...Elsewhere in savouries: sadly I don't yet have photographic confirmation of the Pringles Teatime Favourites (in Macaroni Cheese, Spaghetti Bolognese, or Steak and Onion Pie) that "Allan" says he saw in Morrisons, Hounslow ("Yet more special flavours from Pringles. Still no pickled onion though,"), while Foodstuff Finds reports that Pret A Manger's Curry Lime Pickle Crisps "taste predominantly of curry powder, but there is a tangy citrus hit which appears as an aftertaste". KP have followed up 2001's ill-fated Hula Hoops XL with three flavours of Big Hoops (160g/1.93, in Original, Sweet Chilli, or Sour Cream and Chive), and Kettle Chips have recalled four of their varieties carrying a best-before date of 29 October 2011 for containing "pieces of plastic that appear similar to the crisps" - presumably identifiable by the fact that they're not as savagely tough to eat as their crisps usually are, ahahaha.

Comment: Further to Phill's comments, one of the Tescos near Peckham was giving away a free bag of the Doritos with every Citrus Freeze Pepsi Max (review to follow), and they taste a bit like Beef Monster Munch.

+ apologies for doubting "Allan", I've also seen the Teatime Favourites Pringles in Morrisons now, with an additional Mexican Fajita flavour in there as well :)

Comment: Tescos around my way are supposedly offering free crisps with the lime Pepsi Max but have none in (2 days running now) and are still charging full whack for the drink...

Comment: The guy I got my Jalapeno Fire Doritos from told me yesterday that they're replacing the Chilli Heatwave ones. He said he's tried to order a couple of boxes and they keep sending him the Jalapeno ones. I REALLY hope this is just an isolated incident with his supplier as the Chilli Heatwave ones are my faves.

Comment: Local 'Premier' branded convenience stores are also doing a pack free with any Pepsi 500/600ml (not just citrus freeze).

Comment: These don't taste at all like Jalapeno peppers. Disappointingly.
