We know what you’re thinking: First, Pepsi-Flavored Cheetos, then Bacon Doritos, and now Shrimp Mayonnaise in a bag? This is surely the beginning of the end. However, before you slowly back away and give this latest “gourmet” Dorito flavor from Japan a swift and final no, let’s take a moment to talk it out.
Shrimp and mayonnaise are often paired together to create Honey Walnut Shrimp — a sumptuous, creamy dish found at many restaurants — and are even slathered on sandwiches as a topping. The flavor combination itself is rich and an attempt to recreate this taste in a single chip is not only ambitious, but intriguing.
Of course, if you’re still trying to get over the idea of a seafood-flavored bag of chips, you’re probably not convinced. Well, I tried. For those in Japan willing to give it a try, they’ll be available ’til March 17, 2014.
