Trader Joe's Nacho Cheese Tortilla Chips

There's only one question to be answered about these chips: Are they as good as Nacho Cheese Doritos?

Sadly, no. They're not bad, but not as good. The Trader Joe's Blandification Committee got hold of some Nacho Cheese Doritos, and said, "We need something like this--but with a lot less flavor, obviously." Then they commissioned what you see here.

They're OK. I can munch on them happily--until my mind wanders to Nacho Cheese Doritos, which instantly makes me wish I were eating them instead.

Will I buy it again? 

Probably not. It's not like the gold standard for this genre is hard to find.

  1. That's surprising to hear bc ever since we tried these, regular Doritos just don't cut it anymore. The TJ ones have so much more flavor and are literally saturated in cheese. Plus they are without all the added chemicals and use real cheese including Ramano. Not to mention the actual tortilla is more moist and has a better texture. We have converted everyone who has tried them. To each his/her own.
