“We know some Doritos fans are going to love it, but we also know some will hate it – our legendary corn chip is ready to put tastebuds to the test.”

“With the taste of coriander being one of Australia’s most divisive flavours we want to boldly launch the flavour in chip form and see if coriander really does taste like soap.”

Vandita said it remained to be seen whether the coriander flavoured corn chips would be a “sensational hit” or a “soapy miss.”
