Defying God, I Drank The Doritos Juice – Chuck Wendig: Terribleminds

It was perhaps just a few months in the past the place Empirical introduced they have been making and releasing DORITOS HOOCH, which is to say, alcoholic Dorito juice. I stated on the time, that is the booze of unhealthy selections. No person’s on the market ingesting the Dorito Juice and feeding orphans. No person drinks the Dorito Liquor and rescues a pet from a river. Doritos Hooch isn’t saving your marriage. No, you drink these items, you find yourself beneath an overpass, underwear in your face, your physique burned from the heap of Sizzling Pockets you orgied upon final evening with the opposite Dorito Juice drinkers, all of whom now in all probability talk through a hive-mind telepathy of cackles and screams.

For sure, I wished some.

I wished some not as a result of I hoped to have a type of nights the place you get drunk and struggle a police horse, however quite, as a result of I’m weirdly vulnerable to meals that perhaps shouldn’t style good. It was simply previous to the pandemic after I kinda made the information making an attempt a mac-and-cheese ice cream from one in every of our native ice cream joints. (This was in February 2020, thus marking February as maybe a month of culinary catastrophe meals.) And I lately tried the Kraft mac-and-cheese collab with Van Leeuwen ice cream. (The native stuff was gross, as a result of they froze the noodles in there, they usually have been arduous indignant teeth-cracking pasta boulders. However the Van Leeuwen stuff was really fairly legit if yow will discover it.)

It’s not that I need the gag reward meals. “Oh, we made Kale chewing gum lol.” That’s there simply to fuck with folks. I need the stuff that… shouldn’t work, but additionally would possibly work?

Anyway, what I’m making an attempt to say is, I purchased the Liquid Doritos.

When it was introduced, it was not obtainable for buy by like, regular people, and truthfully I anticipated it by no means can be. However I put my title on the record anyway, after which I obtained an e-mail that stated “psst hey child, I hear you want making errors,” after which gave me a hyperlink to purchase the Dorito Juice.

I clicked that shit so quick I cracked my trackpad in half.

How may you not? Doritos* is the final word snack. It’s just like the UR-SNACK, the snack of Historic Hyperborea, a zesty salt beast from earlier than the arrival of time itself, when it was simply Triangle Doritos and Round Oreos floating within the pre-creation void.

So, yeah, I ordered it.

After which I performed the ready recreation.

Two days in the past, Fed-Ex got here to my door in a hazmat go well with, and deposited a mysteriously trembling package deal on my entrance step with very lengthy steel tongs, and in that field was:

Dorito Juice.

Okay, high-quality. It isn’t known as that.

It’s simply, Doritos X Empirical, I believe?

No matter.

Level is, I drank that shit.

You’ll be able to, if you wish to go alongside on the journey, see that occur right here, on Instagram, the place I posted a reel of me ingesting the Dorito Juice.

My now-blogged ideas on the DRUNKEN DORITO MILK, then:

It’s a clear spirit with no recognized provenance. The elements, as you’ll see right here, say nothing greater than BASE SPIRIT, which for all I do know, means the field it got here in its a ghost lure, they usually trapped a ghost and force-fed it Dorito powder till it pissed zesty ectoplasm right into a bottle.

(I additionally like that the entrance of the bottle simply says the phrase UNCATEGORIZED, which really feels fairly correct to how you’ll describe this to anybody in any route.)

That stated, the closest spirit I get from it’s tequila.

I don’t assume it is tequila.

But it surely kinda vibes tequila.

Within the parlance of the youth, it’s giving tequila.

It smells that manner. Like tequila and corn chips. On the nostril there’s no Doritos zest. It’s simply corn chips. Such as you took a water-proof duffel bag stuffed with tequila, emptied a bag of tortilla chips into it, and let that each one come collectively for every week or three earlier than filtering the tequila — now redolent with corn chip miasma — by way of. It’s not disagreeable. It’s, nevertheless, distinct.

Ingesting it, I truthfully anticipated a really unhealthy expertise. I first assumed that the sip can be like battery acid and that it might damage my face and throat and really probably some a part of my soul, maybe even irrevocably, the injury so full that no afterlife would have me. It simply has that sense about it. Like, when you advised me “Taco Bell makes wine,” I’d assume that wine would style like the within of a vigorously-used jail bathroom, and right here, I figured Dorito booze can be a actual tough rider, a spicy mixture of vinegar, kerosene, cigarettes, and infinite remorse.

However that preliminary style, and subsequent tastes, have been delicate — pleasantly delicate however with taste, not simply liquid cardboard. And boy does it deliver the Doritoness.

That is liquid Doritos.

Boozy liquid Doritos.

It is rather, very savory.

Not salty savory.

However umami savory.

Doritos have MSG. This juice has to have MSG. I exploit MSG in my cooking when known as for, and the style is completely current right here. It’s that, plus all of the zesty Dorito taste — the nacho enterprise, the spirit of the snack chips distilled right into a, effectively, a spirit. It’s nearly magic.

And the aftertaste, as I be aware within the video, is lengthy. It grips your mouth just like the hug of a once-lost little one. It lives upon the tongue, in your gums. It places up cabinets, it hangs up footage of its household, it pays a 12 months’s lease upfront. You’re the landlord of the style after only one sip.

So, the factor is, this all sounds bizarre and perhaps horrible however I gotta let you know, it… isn’t? It’s really… not unhealthy? Once more, I purchased this bottle, no person gave it to me, this isn’t coerced through some sponsor deal or at gunpoint. I’ve the bottle and I’m positive I’ll drink all of it. (Er, not in a single go. I nonetheless assume this may be a bottle of Liquid Errors when you do it proper. Proper, that means, improper.) Given the tequila whiff, I figured —

Hey, margarita.

So I made one.

I offer you, the Doritorita.

Or, umm, the margorito? The margadorita? The dormagaritota?

I dunno. Shut up.


  • 1 oz Combier orange liqueur
  • glass rimmed with a mixture of: chili powder, salt, coconut sugar, and MSG.

It was fairly legit.

I determine, when you want a great way to interrupt your DRY JANUARY, why not with a margarita shaped of Dorito Juice?

One should solely hope they don’t make a Cool Ranch Juice. I imply, I’ll purchase it however there’s no manner that doesn’t finish me up in some particular singular Hell. Or no less than the hospital. In all probability the hospital.



Drink your Distilled Dorito Broth responsibly.

Purchase my books so I can afford extra doubtful meals collabs.

* I be aware right here, for the sake of completeness, that on the very fore of the pandemic I did an, um, deep dive on the historical past of Doritos that started with the phrase, “Buckle up, butterdicks, it’s time to speak about Doritos.” It has since been assumed I, a cringe-fed goon, really speak like this in my every day life, as if I present as much as Dwelling Depot and discover a employee there and say “Hey, chucklefucker, the place’re your wall anchors at, you herky-jerky cheese dick?” nevertheless it was presupposed to be a riff on the entire “buckle up let’s speak about Triscuits” factor. Anyway it was a fucking joke about Satanic snack chips and a few folks take shit manner too critically right here on Al Gore’s Web.
