We thought there wasn't possibly another bold flavor of chip the Japanese could attempt after Mountain Dew Cheetos. We were all so, so gloriously wrong, because shrimp mayonnaise-flavored Doritos are here, and they're definitely from Japan. The latest in a series of snacks they're calling "Doritos Gourmet" (which also features clam chowder, German potato, and smoky bacon flavors), these chips promise to tantalize the taste buds of anyone who's got a craving for creamy seafood that's been distilled down to a powdery essence. That is, everyone.
