Doritos Locos Tacos

In the course of fast food history, the big chains have blessed us with a few extra-special concoctions that, upon their availability, absolutely electrified the public. We swoon yearly over the reintroduction of the McRib. KFC’s Double Down sandwich was such a big deal that former NY Times’ food critic Sam Sifton reviewed it. 2012 brings us Taco Bell’s big splash–the Doritos Locos Taco–a Taco Bell taco with a shell flavored like a Nacho Cheese Dorito.

AriZona Nachos

Hello, Nacho Nation. Have y’all recovered from the Super Bowl festivities yet? Did your chosen party have nachos? Were they good? Were they more than tortilla chips & quickly-coagulating cheese? I hope so. Personally, I went to a gathering with well-done nachos but, as one who grew up on sports, I can still appreciate the chip & cheese simplicity of the ballpark nacho.

Orville Redenbacher’s Spicy Nacho Popcorn

OMG! Is it really that magical time of year again? You’re darn tootin’ it is. It’s National Popcorn Day! That’s right, today is some day that some marketing exec at some snack manufacturer dreamt up to boost popcorn sales. Celebrate good times, come on!

Wise Nacho Twisters

I don’t know who these snack food companies think they’re fooling. Just because you put a blend of cheeses on a snack, you don’t get to automatically get to use the word “nacho.”

Blue Diamond Nacho Nut Chips

I don’t know if you know this, but snacking technology has advanced so far that these days, you can make a chip out of pretty much anything. Other than the obvious potato chips, these days there are corn chips, wheat chips, pita chips, banana chips, bean chips, taro chips, rice chips, popcorn chips & kale chips. I have an uncle who makes chips out of buffalo. How about nut chips?

T.G.I. Friday’s Nacho Potato Skins

The last time I snuggled my ass into a booth at a T.G.I. Friday’s, Napster was cool, The Backstreet Boys were king & Slick Willie was president. I haven’t been back since then & here’s why: As an eating establishment, T.G.I. Friday’s is the restaurant equivalent of a bad acid trip, a gaudily-decorated chain restaurant that serves up crappy 1,000+ calorie entrees & plays it off like they’re all gourmet or creative or something.

Utz Cheesier Nacho Tortillas

When it comes to my snacking choices, a lot of the time I like to keep it classy, with fancy cheeses & pheasants & whatnot. The rest of the time I swing lowbrow, consuming my weight in Combos & Slim Jims & Hostess Sno Balls.

Nacho Cheese Combos (A Queso The Munchies)

From what I can tell, the folks at Mars, Inc. who are involved with Combo flavor creation really have a hard-on thing for nachos.
