American Chips?

Recommended Posts

I'm sure Pancho at Superlake would add them to his next order. Just be prepared to"commit" (as in pay in advance) for a large quantity. How bad did you say you wanted them.............

This is a bit of a head scratcher.  The poster is living in the land of fiery hot stuff; native chips that will peel the glaze off the bowls, and he wants U.S.chips?  Am I missing something?

Hey, everyone misses something different and as time passes it usually fades, but not always. I still bring in a couple of cans of Mary Kitchen hash every once in a while. At $3.50 US a pound for shipping with Estafeta it ain't cheap but a can is enough for 3 breakfasts for the 2 of us. Scrambled eggs, hash, toast and fresh OJ is just what the doctor orders every once in awhile. Tried making my own and it su......oops, can't say that.

I have seen hot flavors of Cheetos and Doritos in Soriana and in Farmacia Guadalajara in Chapala.

Is there a taste difference between the American and Mexican versions of hot Doritos?

Look in ANY store here. OXXO, 7/11, any grocery store of ANY size, including neighorhood abarrotes.

"Frito-Lay" = "Sabritas" here. Doritos nachos con chile....Corkscrew Cheetos con chile....etc. And then the other brands with jalapeño etc. They are EVERYWHERE.

I hated those products in the US. They are a million times better here.

It May be my tastebuds, but I have found that the  nacho cheese Doritos here taste just a tad different.

Just left Superlake and they have Extra Flaming Hot Cheetos. I wanted some plain Fritos, but all they have are with funky flavors.

I love plain Fritos, but have never found them in Mexico, except for Walmart, once. Seems everything here has to be overly salty, sweet, perfumed, greasy, or spicy.  I think that will change in time, as I just read that 2/3 of Mexicans are overweight or obese, and that it is being acknowledged as a big health crisis. But probably won't change much in most of our lifetimes.

Soriana generally has Fritos, and a Mexican version too.
