have been looking in supermarkets in Metrowest (Wellesely) - can't find the original Dorito corn chips- kind of curly. Only find the tortillas- triangle shape. Have they stopped producing them? Anyone seen them?

  1. I remember seeing bags of Toasted Corn Doritos in stores several years back, but not since then. These were the current triangle shaped Dorito chips though. I don't ever recall seeing curly Doritos. Perhaps these pre-dated me. Are you thinking of Fritos? Those are the only curly corn chips I can recall.

    1. I never saw a Dorito that wasn't triangular. Are you thinking of Fritos?

        Tostitos also make a chip now (for a limited time) which is more of a strip - kinda like a surfboard shape. I think I saw those at Hannaford.

          "original Dorito corn chips- kind of curly"

          That sounds like a Frito to me.

            doritos have been a triangle since i was a kid and that was decades ago.

        2. You must be thinking of Tostitos strips. Doritos, so far as I remember for the past few decades, have always been triangular segments of some sort.

          1. I actually spotted some at the Star Market in Chestnut Hill, on Route 9 (the new industrial-looking megastructure one).

              Weren't Doritos invented by your great grand father. Maximillian Pravis Maximus?

            2. Had some Doritos (triangular with powdered orange cheese) on a JetBlue flight recently, so at least they still exist. If this is what you're looking for, your best bets are in the big chain supermarkets (Star, Stop & Shop, etc.) and probably just about any 7-11.
