Doritos confirms it has discontinued favorite flavor but says ‘passionate fans’ may bring it back

DORITOS has discontinued a popular flavor – but fans may wish it came back.

Oftentimes, big snack brands test new flavors and see how they stack up in terms of sales and popularity.

Doritos recently tested a hot mustard flavor.

A fan of the strain on X tweeted that the last bag of the flavor was empty.

“Doritos I’m really going to need more please please please,” the fan said.

In response, parent company Frito-Lay broke the news that the hot mustard variety had been discontinued and would only be available for a limited time – but raised hopes that it might return in the future.

“We know this is a huge disappointment so we’re sharing with our team all the feedback we’re getting from our loyal, passionate fans as they may consider bringing it back to market in the future,” she said Brand.

Walmart customers rated the taste 3.8 stars out of five online.

One five star reviewer said: “If I had known these were seasonal I would have bought 20 or 30 bags for my pantry. Now they’re sold out and I can’t find them anywhere! Cruel jest Doritos!”

And another wrote: “These are delicious! My new favorite! The mustard almost has a wasabi kick. It tastes a lot like McDonald’s hot mustard sauce. I hope they keep them for a while!”

In addition to mustard, the chips were also filled with spices, sour cream, natural and artificial flavors, onion powder, monosodium glutamate (MSG), and seed oils.

At Walmart, while prices can vary by location, the mustard-flavored Doritos retail for $3.88 in a 9.25-ounce bag.


But thankfully, Doritos has launched other new flavors for fans to try.

One of these is a limited edition strain known as Spicy Pineapple Jalapeno.

At Target, a nine-ounce bag costs $5.19.

In addition, Doritos has launched its sweet and tangy barbecue chip flavor.

It is sold in a 9.25 ounce bag at Walmart for $3.88.


Doritos is far from the only major grocery brand to have discontinued items.

Kellogg’s Cheez-It recently confirmed that it has discontinued the sweet and salty snack mix.

In addition to the original Cheez-it pieces, there were popular milk chocolate pieces from M&M’s, pretzels, candy corn squares and caramel-flavored popcorn.

Other ingredients in the pack include artificial and natural flavors, seed oils, and artificial food coloring.

Five grams of sugar are added per serving.

In an 8-ounce box, the treat was sold at Walmart for $7.53.

Pringles has discontinued its popular honey mustard flavor.

The strain was last available online at Walmart for $1.96 in a 5.5 ounce container.

Coffee-Mate dropped its cookie and cocoa flavors, which consisted of seed oils, natural and artificial flavors, and carrageenan.

In addition, five grams of sugar were added.

Previously at Kroger, the creamer sold in a 32-liquid-ounce container for $4.69.
