Mountain Dew and Doritos are a tried and true combination of absurd flavors.

The pairing is so iconic they are the de facto snack in lazy jokes about gamer stereotypes. Why do they work so well together? Neither science nor religion can answer that. But only because no one cares to find out the reason. Sometimes you just accept reality for what it is. And the reality is that it tastes good to wash down intense nacho cheese chips with neon green soda that actually tastes like neon green. But just because two things go together well doesn’t mean you should literally put them together. But try telling that to PepsiCo. It’s released Mountain Dew-flavored Doritos, a real product you can really buy and really eat.

But should you? Maybe.

Mountain Dew doritos have hit NZ stores this week, are they your new favourite flavour?
