Doritos Cereal


Why?

Why not?

Doritos are delicious. I don't see why they wouldn't be just as tasty in cereal form.

If you are an underling at Frito-Lay, or if you are Indra K. Nooyi, the CEO of PepsiCo, you should take notice and make Doritos Cereal a reality.


Okay, so you don't work for Doritos, have you ever thought that maybe there should be more of a dinner cereal? I have. Why aren't there any dinner cereals? Why are all cereals sweet?

Maybe someone should work on some dinner cereals. Maybe that person is you.

I want to see some dinner cereals on the market by the end of the year. Get out there and make this idea a reality.

P.S. Subscribing to Ideas By Chuck is still legal in all 13 original colonies of the United States.

P.P.S. Telling your friends about Ideas By Chuck is okay. If you aren't going to use any of my ideas to become rich and powerful, you might as well tell your friends about them, and let them become rich and powerful. Maybe they will still be friends with you after they are rich and powerful, and they will invite you to their extravagant parties. Maybe they will invite me to their extravagant parties.

dinner cereals are called soups

I see where you are going with this chaz and I have to agree... modern mornings are made for pop tarts and toaster stroodles... get up and get out and like Dr. Laura says, "go take on the day"

whereas the evening allow for a more relaxed eating sessions, it makes much more sense to eat spillables while you sit back, relax and watch some Bernie Mac (R.I.P)

we are operating on an old eating paradigm and it's time to rethink it

Doritos cereal has real potential, the combination of salty with dairy is currently limited in its culinary evolution, due mainly to the prevailing notions of what cereal should be eaten with. Already we have tortilla soup, which is delicious, but using a cream based broth could be a whole nother realm of budinal tastetinocity. Kinda like what chili did for Fritos.

That's nasty as hell . . . I can't imagine drinking the cheesy milk after the cereal is gone. This is gross. This sounds like a bad Digitalfuntown.com joke. Sick.

doritos + milk = delicious in my tummy

I second langston on the "cheesy milk" thing. You know how vom tastes sort of like pizza and orange juice? That's how I imagine Doritos cereal.

Patrick said...

You know, you could just break up a bunch of Doritos into bite-sized pieces in a bowl and pour some spicy tomato juice over the top. I can't really see it working out with milk though.

You know, at first thought I had to agree with Langston, the cheesy milk after, it's maybe just to muck, BUT. Those chips are like intoxicating, even if you are not hungry they call to you if someone is eating them, the smell is some kind of intestinal pheromone. So possibly they could twist the flavor or something and I would like it. Second thought, I don't like about a million foods so it might be the best thing ever for some people!

I was talking to some people about it last night.

What we came up with...

Ranch flavored milk.

are you 12 years old? They make a ton of non-sweet cereals. It's what adults eat. In fact, the oldest commercial cereal still available on market is non-sweetened. They call them Kellogg's Corn Flakes. They are flakes of corn. In milk.

Joe said...

kind of an unwarranted freak-out over non-sweet cereals, don't you think? I'm 18 and happen to love cocoa puffs and raisin bran equally. I'm not big on doritos though, so I don't think I'd try this...maybe the cool ranch ones :)

After reading this blog article last year, I took it upon myself to try Doritos in a bowl as cereal. Milk just wouldn't cut it though. To be truly eXtreme, I used a can of Mountain Dew.

It was everything I thought it would be.
