At last World of Snacks has located unique Doritos from Japan! Prior to creating our Global Snack Blog we’ve read articles and heard rumors about certain flavors of Doritos that are only available in Japan. When we say only available in Japan, we mean it! It is nearly impossible to track these chips down and acquiring them has been both time consuming and costly. But guess what? It’s totally worth it!
We’ve been able to locate a handful of weird and rare flavors of Doritos and over the next few weeks we will be highlighting them all. We decided to start our review with what we thought would be the least exciting, Doritos Corn Potage.
The Corn Potage flavor from Japan is a part of the Doritos Gourmet line and appear to be a limited edition. The packaging is crisp and attractive in a shinny black bag with the “gourmet” text in a reflective hologram foil. The package is mostly in Japanese but has a few key words inscribed in English. But enough about the bag,- how do they taste?
In the United States corn potage doesn’t exist. After a little research we’ve determined it’s a corn soup with a cream base. In Japan the dish is so popular it’s even available in vending machines. This is why you will not see Corn Potage Doritos available for sale in the US, other than in the World of Snacks international snack store. We were so excited to sample these Japanese Doritos that our test panel consisted of 10 people, the most we have utilized for a sample group so far. After our test, it was a unanimous vote, these chips were delicious and must be offered on our website! The chips are a little thicker than a US Doritos and they have a semi-sticky texture, which is unlike any chip we have previous sampled. The flavor is sweet and savory and tastes exactly like cream style corn. Although we chose this snack to start with thinking it would be the least exciting, they are outrageously delicious. I think our association with corn chips made the concept of Corn Potage Doritos not initially exciting. However, these chips are not your everyday corn chip and are unlike any US chip flavor.
We are in the process of securing a supplier and hope to offer many rare and unique Doritos Flavors from Japan when our international snack store launched towards the end of the year. Stay tuned for more daring international Doritos reviews in the very near future on worldofsnacks.com.
