In news that will surprise maybe no one, Doritos is apparently ready to move on to its next big fast food collaboration. According to the Associated Press, PepsiCo Inc., who owns Doritos and other Frito-Lay snacks, said it was working with restaurant chain Buffalo Wild Wings to create "unique menu offerings," such as crunchy Doritos wing toppings or Mountain Dew-flavored dipping sauces. Um, yes please?!
The news comes following Buffalo Wild Wings' announcement Thursday of signing PepsiCo as its primary soft drink provider. Unfortunately, citing logistical reasons, BWW CEO Sally Smith says testing for these products wouldn't start until at least a year to 18 months from now.
The AP also reports a representative for Pizza Hut saying they've similarly explored possible Doritos x Pizza Hut mash-ups, though no potential menu items were provided.
Let's just hope we're not totally over the whole college-gourmand thing by the time Doritos-Locos-Cheesy-Bacon-Crust pizzas come around in 2015.
