So going through the grocery store and seeking something new and interesting... I stumbled upon a top secret bag of Doritos. It's called X13.

I thought it might be fun, so we plopped down our money and went home to try this new flavor.

Imagine this. You go out and eat hamburgers and chase them down with maragritas. Then you go dancing. After a while, you get sick, but instead of vomiting outwards - instead you ( well you and Jim Beam ) find the taste agreeable and eat it down again. You repeat the process and decide that the bosses at work might like to try some. Since they're all hung over - they kinda like the taste... or no longer have tastebuds. The next thing you know, they have the marketing department start a " You Name The Flavor " contest. Viola! Doritos X13.

I swear I'd eat a live rat to get the taste out of my mouth.

Please people at Doritos - give me my money back.... and a glazed donut.

This must be like the Jelly Belly "vomit" flavored jelly bean. You heard it tastes like that, but still want to try it, once.

I believe that would actually be from Bertie Bott's Every Flavor Beans.

Too funny! Using the Internet as a learning tool, I came across this equally amusing account of the "tasty" chip ...

Jelly Belly manufactures Bertie Bott's. You wouldn't want Earthworm and Vomit flavored beans directly linked to Jelly Belly packaging would you if you were trying to sell mainstream Jelly Bellys would you?

I'm almost positive with the right kind of marketing, you could sell sliced $hit in **** country. Sad thing is, people would buy it and complain about the taste.

Must be a bag mistakenly shipped out of the secret Doritos factory in China - you know most of what we eat in the US now comes from there seems like - hooray for capitalism!

Query?
? Project X13
Searching....................
1 entry found.
Project X13: Effort to lower cost of manufacture of snack chips via outsourcing to supplier in China. Substandard factory, ingredients, processes and wages mean higher profits if X13 can be passed off as something "new and cool" to an easily-influenced American consumer of anything crunchy in a bright-colored bag. A lite version (containing 18% cardboard, vs. the usual 19% sawdust) will be marketed toward the health-conscious consumer.
