Review: 7-Eleven - Doritos Loaded

7-Eleven's new Doritos Loaded are basically Doritos-seasoned, triangular mozzarella sticks, but with melted American, cheddar, and Romano cheeses inside instead of gooey mozzarella.

I picked up a pack of four for $1.99.

The crust is deep orange like Nacho Cheese Doritos with a good amount of orange powder on it. It looks like they went with a panko breading that stayed decently crisp even when cold (it's not crusted with actual crushed Doritos). Each piece is just a little smaller than a standard Doritos chip in width and length and about a quarter to a third of an inch thick.

Inside was a warm, but not melted, cheesy core. The texture was smooth and a little gel-like but not the warm nacho cheese you might get in some jalapeno bites. It's more like warm, coagulated cheese (which it probably was). The core had a good flavor to it but was also pretty salty.

The shell was also pretty salty, but also tasted very much like a Nacho Cheese Doritos with an abundance of "bold" flavor to go around. If you want to go really crazy, you can buy some cheese dip and dip them for a cheesy trifecta.

Overall, 7-Eleven's Doritos Loaded is, true to the name, loaded with Nacho Cheese Doritos flavor and tastes really good. It does veer deep into salty territory, but they might have planned it that way to get you to buy a Big Gulp or Slurpee to go with. I would be more impressed if they oozed with nacho cheese inside though. If you love Doritos, these are really the next step.
