Doritos' New "Roulette" Flavor Has A Few Painfully Spicy Chips In Each Bag And People Are Filming Themselves Eating Them

Eat at your own risk.

Posted on

If your normal bag of Doritos hasn't provided enough entertainment, PepsiCo has just launched "Doritos Roulette," a new gimmick where just a few of the chips in each bag are insanely hot.

You know, like Russian roulette. But with chips instead of guns.

Some consumers are calling the spicy chips "a solid slap in the face," and hundreds have taken to posting videos of themselves taking the challenge on YouTube, the Financial Post reports.

Luckily for us, we get to live vicariously through the Canadians who have filmed themselves trying it.

"It really is hot. It's not like a Dorito," said Erika, one YouTuber who tried it with a friend.

The only thing worse than getting a spicy chip, it seems, is getting a bag with none. Or at least not being sensitive enough to be affected by it.

People are also sharing pictures of themselves post-spicy chip with the hashtag #BurnSelfie as part of a Doritos giveaway.

Good luck out there, Canadian snackers!

The new roulette Doritos are basically anxiety in a bag. I ended up taking tiny licks of each chip, and making a pile out of the spicy ones.
