Vegan Doritos


I don’t have much of a sweet tooth, so while I do appreciate a good cupcake, I prefer salty, savory side of vegan snacks.  Sweet Avenue Bakeshop handles my sweet needs when they arise (despite their inability to accommodate the simplest of requests), but for me, it’s all about the Doritos, despite the fact that their website is trying to kill us all.

Now I know what you’re thinking:  if you’re vegan, you can’t have Doritos.  Well you thought wrong, hombre; the fact is, there has been a vegan Doritos flavor for some time, and the kids call it Spicy Sweet Chili.

Ah, Spicy Sweet Chili, how I love thee.  If these chips were women, my girlfriend would have to fight a Scott Pilgrim like battle against their nefarious deliciousness.  They’re that good.

Did Frito Lay do this intentionally to capitalize on the vegan-hipster market?  I have no idea; and yes, somebody said I was a hipster last year, so I’m going with it.  Then again, within nearly a week, somebody said I was a hippy – they’re both wrong, I’m an old skool gangsta, but I digress…  Spicy Sweet Chili Doritos are awesome and they’re vegan.  VEGAN!  It’s a rare snack victory in my life.  Now if I could just find those damn Cheetos….

  1. I too love the Spicy Sweet Chili Doritos and was very excited the first time I read the label and discovered they were vegan! Now someone needs to get on vegan Funyun development. YUM.
