This Zesty Doritos Flavor Is Back By Popular Demand

Hold the Halloween candy, because we have another seasonal treat for you this year. Doritos is officially bringing back its Twisted Lime flavor just in time for your Halloween parties, and we've never been more excited. According to a press release sent to Mashed, these chips have a sour-spicy tang that is so good, "it's scary."

This unique Doritos flavor was first released in October 2020 and was intended to be limited-edition. But this variety was so popular that the flavor had to be reintroduced to Sam's Club members in August 2021, before being vanishing from shelves once more.

Frito-Lay, Doritos' parent company, had released the flavor almost exactly a year ago. However, it wasn't specifically marketed towards Halloween. Rather, it was seen more as a snack to be shared during Thanksgiving and football-watching parties (via Snack Food & Wholesale Bakery). However, we're not complaining about this spooky twist on its most recent return, because we'll gladly bring one bag, or several, to any costume party.

Where can you get Twisted Lime Doritos?

Starting October 21, you can find Twisted Lime Doritos in XXL bags at That's enough to share at Halloween movie night, or you can eat the entire bag yourself (we would!). However, you better act fast, because these chips are only here until they sell out. According to, there are only 2,000 bags available, with one 9.25-ounce bag costing $4.79.
