The last "super-hot" Doritos was the Fiery Habanero flavor and they discontinued that a few years ago. If I want a bag of spicy chips, I want them to be 100% spicy, not play some crappy game of "Find the spicy chip."

/Bring back the Habanero flavor

Sounds like basically what they did with the mystery flavor Dum-Dums.

They would have gotten away with it too if it weren't for those meddling kids.

Do they still make the Blazin Buffalo/Ranch bags?  I liked the buffalo but hated wasting half the chips with ranch.   I also saw those new doritos stuffed with cheese at the gas station yesterday, but was not brave enough to try them.

/if you want hot, I smoked some peppers this weekend and made four pepper smoked salsa

Sounds like a great marketing idea.  Not everyone will love it but you can't deny that it's generated buzz about their products.  Personally, I like that they keep trying new things.

I make sure to eat some before going to pick up my son.

Now my son has picked up on it and partakes before going home, just to drive her crazy.

Try Art & Mary's Jalapeño kettle tater chips. They are absolutely addictive. Just don't ever stop eating them. Your mouth will regret it.

Worked at a place that had a bowl of Jelly Bellies for public consumption. For Halloween one year, I bought a bag of Bertie Bott's Every Flavored Beans and dumped them into the bowl. The bowl was gone the next week and replaced with individually wrapped candies.

Meh. Personally, I just prefer regular chips and change dipping sauces according to what I want that particular time. Unless they're salt and vinegar chips... in which case I can't stop eating them for any reason.

Subby needs to watch a few episodes of 'How It's Made'. When chips get to the end of the production line they drop into bags which are formed from a pre-printed roll of plastic. The decision to label these ones as 'Roulette' was made long before the chips themselves were produced.

It's cumulative, or at least it seems so. So, if you eat 20 of them, it's worse than if you eat 2. I know Jalapeños aren't exactly Ghost Peppers; but, they seem to have enough capsaicin to be getting on with.

Capsicum annuum is like that in general. They vary from 0 scoville (Bell peppers) to 100,000 scoville (Tepins). Which you get often depends on which plant did the pollinating. I've gotten some jalapeno-hot banana peppers before, due to too-close group of same-species cultivars.

Why do Canadians get all the good flavors? When I was a teen going to summer camp in Canada, they had vinegar, ketchup, dill pickle flavored potato chips, all unavailable back then. I definitely would play Roulette.

The genius of the marketing is you are so baffled by the Mystery Flavor ZOMG that you don't nice they are putting about 1oz less of chips in the bag but charging you the same price as the regular chips.

Can confirm. Texan living here in Vancouver and OMG THOSE FLAVORS THO.
First things first, Cheezies are Canada's version of Cheetos. Remember the sharp Cheetos from the 80's and 90's and how much flavor they had? These blow them out of the water with cheese flavor.

Also the lays had the same come up with a flavor competition up here and the Creamy Ceasar flavor one was the bomb:

For the record, these are the best chips known to humans:

I used to buy incense from an online shop. Their store/warehouse was near an east-coast faultline. Since they made their own sticks and used no dyes, most sticks looked alike, if one of their racks fell over, they offered an ''Earthquake Special'' where they offered a hundred random sticks for something like U$15 or so...

As for DumDums, the mystery flavour comes from flushing the melted candy out of the pump between flavour batches.

It's no farkup.  I refuse to believe that.  It's marketing and it seems to be working.

However, Dum-Dum lollipops have been mentioned in this thread, and that's exactly what the "Mix-Ups" flavors are- the result of them stopping one flavor and pushing a new flavor through the die makes a lot of mixed product.  They used to throw that changeover material away, now they sell it all.   Brilliant, but Dum-dums still are bad and if you give them out at Halloween you should feel bad.
