USA, Nacho Cheese can packaging, 1999
Anyone have more info on these? I believe these images came from an ebay auction, but I can’t confirm that or find more info on this can. Is it real? How did it open? Was this cheese soda?
Costa Rica, Queso Acelerado packaging, 2013. From the Liebold Archives.
My sister-in-law so kindly grabbed these for me while on a trip to Costa Rica (in which she also got engaged, congrats!). While they claim to be “acelerado” which I take to mean “accelerated,” they really were more like “regular” Nacho Cheese. Still very tasty delicious to mine tongue though.
USA, Jumpin’ Jack limited edition packaging, 2013. From the Liebold Archives.
These are without a doubt one of my favorite flavors in recent memory. It’s taken me some time to post them up, so hopefully they are still available in your area. If so, do yourself a favor and grab a bag for you and your loved ones.
USA, Dinamita Chipotle Crema packaging, 2012. From the Liebold Archives via Fred Liebold.
I really enjoyed these. In start contrast to the other Dinamita flavors, this one is more subtle, thereby more enjoyable to me. It’s hard to savor a chip when you can’t even taste it due to your taste buds being singed by the first bite. Here the taste settles in, and takes a little bit to make a statement. At first crunch, you might think there’s nothing too special about them, then you taste the crema part and then the spice hits. Well done.
Mexico, Doritos 3Ds Cheese packaging, 2012.
The return of Doritos 3Ds! In Mexico at least. And I’m sure we have James Cameron to thank for it’s reemergence.
Israel, Meushan packaging, 2012. via Dungeons & Doritos & invincible—summer
User invincible—summer comes through again! These she says translate to “smokey” flavored. That’s such an interesting and cryptic flavor. Smokey ribs? Smokey the bear?
Israel, Chamutz Hareef packaging, 2012. via Dungeons & Doritos & invincible—summer
So the D&D guys tried these out recently, but no one could seem to figure out the actual flavor. I coincidentally came upon these browsing the Doritos tag on Tumblr and a little translation help from user invincible—summer. She says:
The green one is “chamutz hareef” which literally translates to sour spicy, but if you taste it it’s more like sweet and spicy

Japan, Doritos Gourmet Double Cheese packaging, 2012. via Dungeons & Doritos.
Oh smooth cheesy heaven, would love to try these. This fine specimen comes courtesy the gents at The Nerdy Show who run a series called Dungeons & Doritos. I suggest if you frequent this archive, you check it out and get in on the fun. It’s got to be right up your alley.
USA, Jacked Smoky Chipotle BBQ packaging, 2012. From the Liebold Archives via Fred Liebold.
To be honest, I can’t much comment on the flavors of this and the previous Jacked varieties. It’s been a while since I’ve had them, and I’ve been behind on posting them. So forgive me, but all you need to know is I finished the bags immediately. That should be enough to describe their tastiness.
USA, Doritos Jacked Ranch Dipped Hot Wings packaging, 2012. From the Liebold Archives via Fred Liebold.
USA, Doritos Jacked Enchilada Supreme packaging, 2012. From the Liebold Archives via Fred Liebold.
It is no lie that these Jacked Doritos are bigger and thicker than your run-of-the-mill Doritos. You can’t fit a whole chip into your mouth at once! They remind me a bit of the thickness of the Gourmet Doritos from Japan, which are also thicker. Gives them a good crunch when you bite into them. As for the flavor, great. Not too overwhelming though despite being billed as “bolder.” 4 out of 5 crunches.
Japan, Doritos Gourmet Caesar Salad packaging, 2011
Of all the offbeat flavors coming out of Japan, for some reason this make the least sense to me. A salad chip? They do get inventive points, but I’m wondering if they’re just running out of flavors to clone. What’s next, coffee Doritos? I would still eat and likely enjoy those though.
Chile, Misterio packaging, 2012.
Sharon also deciphered and sent us the Misterio chips, which she says are of a spicy cool ranch variety. That sounds pretty outstanding to us, Sharon. Carry on.
