Snackdouche – Doritos Golden Cheese

10 Jan

Part Four of our special Snackdouche: Taiwan edition.
The setting: TamKang Church in Danshui, Taiwan
The store: The vending machine in the lobby
The snack: Doritos – Golden Cheese flavor

A quick break in the action led to an impulse purchase of Doritos from a vending machine. What did 10 NT (about 35 cents) buy?

Not a big bag, but 30 grams for 35 cents? Can’t beat that.

The flavor is just like pre-Foreman Doritos. My guess is that “Nacho Cheese” is probably meaningless to a Chinese audience, so they called it “Golden Cheese” to try to signal something. The chips are lightly flavored in the way Doritos used to be, so you get the flavor of corn from the chips. Not bad, but nothing unique here.
