For the longest time, pickle-flavored Doritos were a Canadian snack, but that’s not the case anymore. A slightly different version of the popular chips has been spotted in a Dollar General store, with the social media account @theimpulsivebuy sharing a photo. It looks as though the flavor will be something a little different from the ‘Intense Pickle’ that customers in other parts of the world are used to. This United States version has been called ‘Tangy Pickle,’ with the ‘I’ in ‘pickle’ being replaced by a lightning bolt.
Imagining the Possibilities
Followers of the social media account quickly began to imagine what a world with tangy pickle-flavored Doritos would be like. One person was looking forward to the ‘Tangy Pickle’ Doritos taco, a message they typed while they were enjoying a Taco Bell. At the moment, it seems only Dollar Generals and a select choice of stores are stocking the new pickle Doritos.
It might take some time for the pickle-flavored Dorito to make its way to a store near you, but it will be worth the wait. Chip fans were disappointed it took Frito-Lay so long to bring the pickle Doritos to the United States, but now is the time to celebrate the delicacy’s arrival.
So there we have it, you can now enjoy covering your fingers in pickle-flavored Dorito dust in the United States. Finally, Frito-Lay has seen the light and brought this popular snack to American shores.
