Sunday afternoon: the two of us have recently discovered a beautiful walking path beside our apartment. We oversaw this strip of water from our window for a while, but we never actually walked by it. We thought it was inaccessible from our location, unless we walked quite a distance. Finally, after living in our apartment for well over a year, we decided to take our lazy asses over there and see, once and for all, if we could walk by the water.

We found a ramp. A big ramp. It led us and many people down there. We walked there two Saturdays ago, and decided that we should make a weekly event of it. We’re doing our best to be more active now. I needed a path for running, since I wanted to get into running. Now that I’m into running I’m thinking to myself “damn why did I get into running?” But I run on this path now many days of the week, while on the weekends the two of us go on a lovely walk together.

This last Sunday we set up a small picnic basket. We made some jumokbap (rice balls with seasoning and seaweed), steamed some sweet potatoes, and warmed up some sake and put it in a thermos. We put that all in a backpack and went on our walk. We hold hands a lot when we walk. We don’t just hold them at our hips, either. We bend our elbows in fully, and hold our hands tightly by our shoulders. EVERYONE LOOK AT US HOLDING HAAANDS!

So we walked like this for 6 miles. Yep. 6 miles. We saw people flying kites, adults playing organized baseball and laughing with each other at every strikeout, old people using the random exercise machines around the walking paths. We saw two men break out their saxophones, stand on a podium, and just rock out for a bit. On our walk back they were already finished, packed up and gone. The sun was setting. We were warm and happy walking back home together.

We decided to stop by the convenience store close by our home, which is where we saw these bags of Doritos. What a perfect end to our night, right? We’ll buy these, and bring them back to the studio for a WTF video, where we can celebrate the introduction of Cool Ranch Doritos to Korea.

WRONG! SO WRONG! PERFECT DAY RUINED!

Well, not ruined. I’m exaggerating. We’re just a bit weirded out by the sweetness of these different style “Cool Ranch” Doritos. Let us know if you tried them here. They’re at the C&U convenience store chains, exclusively. Isn’t that a member of Bilasa, by the way? Ha! Just joking, but I can’t help but think of him whenever I see that chain.

Anyhow, if you want a bag of these for yourselves, click on this fancy button below. It’ll get you all the Doritos you want! Well, that might not be true. There’s a chance, though. Best take that chance by subscribing for more vids :D

  1. One of my coworkers invited me over to her house for dinner. I helped
    her make spaghetti, which she’s made before but apparently her family
    doesn’t really like her cooking? Or at least her spaghetti. She asked
    what we needed, if we needed side dishes like pickles or kimchi. I told
    her whatever she likes, but I did suggest garlic bread. She got out
    garlic bread, which was actually garlic bread. No sugar, just that hint
    of butter and garlic bread pre-made and in a bag. But, then she pulls
    out cream cheese. STRAWBERRY cream cheese. To put on the bread that
    already has garlic seasoning on it. I’m just… yeah.

    Not that long ago I got White Chocolate Pringles from Wal-Mart. I’ve eaten worse. Still, since S&M are Canadian, why aren’t they obsessed with all-dressed chips?

  3. At least you have flavor options! Where I live in Germany, you can only find paprika flavored chips. Not my favorite. I do a little happy dance every time I see Pringles that aren’t paprika flavored. And don’t even get me started on Doritos..I can’t find them anywhere :'(

    I saw some of my classmates stuffing their faces with this after being disgusted watching this video O_O
    i guess Korean people like it.

  5. Cairistiona

    I had cucumber Walkers/Lays in China. They were gross too. They tasted of sugar and coldness. Weirdest flavour ever.

  6. sounds disgusting..but i think korean love their chips sweet!!

    Hello guise :)

    “Now that I’m into running I’m thinking to myself “damn why did I get into running?” But I run on this path now many days of the week, while on the weekends the two of us go on a lovely walk together.” XDDD :)) Two thumbs up for that ..uhm…running :D

    *yay* I kind of love these fancy new-words-introducing blog posts XDD … I’m studying for IELTS so it’s a nice chance for me to learn new words and expressions and get the hang of them :)

    Thank you for another cute video :D

    Take care of yourselves guise…

    ♥♥♥♥♥♥

    P.S: *addressing to blog post author* is that you Simon? XD Really now… I can’t distinguish you guise now :))

      They do smell weird. The cheese ones should smell like cheese, but they smell like weird cheese. The plain ones smell strange too. I think that’s just Doritos for you.

  8. Wanda McBee

    Hey, I am a big fan of you guys thanks for all your entertaining videos that have really helped me to settle into Korea.
    I know this is totally unrelated and you might have already covered it…but here I go anyways. I am really hoping to watch some K-Drama with English subtitles but I was hoping for a recommendation on what online pages to use? Thanks in advance! P.S you guys are awesome xxx

    I LITERALLY bought a bag of Cool Ranch and turned this vid on at the same time, Simon, Cool Ranch is only 1g!!!! WTF 21g!?

  10. Jaime Ramirez

    I haven’t been here that long but I’ve steered away from chips all together, and tend to eat seaweed snacks or these little rice cake “crackers”. BTW just because a bag of chips has a picture of barbecued ribs on the bag does not mean its going to taste like barbecue; at least not the type I am used to.

  11. Diorgirl79

    Its official… I can tell who is writing the blogs… just from the tone of the blog. and yeah… This I don’t really want. But not in a bad way! In a “More for you” kinda way.

  12. I’m a pretty big fan of Beef Jerky regardless of its effects on my digestive system, but Chinese Pork Jerky is ridiculously delicious! It is so sweet, but so good… I just want to eat bak kwa all day… ;-;

  13. Sara Suzanne Berg

    Time to go to the convenience store and try these!

  14. Kaitlyn Rae Avery Hematyar

    They put sugar or actually high fructose corn syrup in everything in America too. It’s not so unusual.

  15. Leah Apple

    In Australia we don’t even have normal ranch doritos. it’s like “here have plain, nacho cheese or cheddar cheese!) well at least in my experience

  16. Simon should go into the ranch business in korea

  17. Korea’s plot to make Americans lose weight: RUIN ALL FATTY FOODS BY ADDING COPIOUS AMOUNTS OF SUGAR!!!

    In Japan we also get weird flavors Doritos from time to time… i always think i should send you some when i see them, haha… the only two i can remember at the top of my head are just corn, and guacamole. the guacamole ones are green, and they’re pretty nice actually!! but yeah, the bags are tiny too!! T_T

  19. I’m gonna order it just so I can not like it myself. lol

  20. Bagofhamsters

    If can you get Yoghurt cultures in Korea make your own with no sugar – really easy warm milk + culture + overnight = yoghurt. duno how you’d go slapping it on chips?

  21. wow coincidentally i’m eating doritos (nacho cheese) before i watched this and when you guys said to look at the nutrition facts my bag said 0g of sugar. wow i can’t imagine doritos with even 10-20g of sugar

  22. Matt Jones

    In Britain Cool Ranch is called Cool Original! Well the more you know :D

  23. I just ate cool ranch doritos before I saw this video lol I have seen a lot of weird flavors here in the US recently. (Garlic Bread, chicken & waffles, and sriracha) I love yalls videos.

  24. I wonder if Taemin likes it.

  25. In Turkey, we have Lays chips w/ yogurt and seasonal green veggies. In my opinion they’re not that great but somehow Turkish people love it. Here’s a image of the package. http://www.fritolay.com.tr/media/9397/lays_yogurt___mesim_yesll_aile.jpg

  26. Jade Leane

    Hhahaha I was just about to check the nutrition chart on my bag of Doritos ( sweet chilli pepper) when Martina told me to do it!!! (can you see me?)

  27. Carley MacKenzie

    Oh man. I always read the blog post first. I was genuinely excited when I saw that Cool Ranch Doritos were available (Even though I don’t live in Korea. Yet.) and then I had an audible gasp when I saw “WRONG!”
    I am actually, extremely sorry for your disappointment. I feel disappointed now. Lol(?)

  28. I don’t have Doritos here… so I’ll stick with Tostitos for now. :-( Hahaha!

  29. You joke, but I actually had an empty Doritos packet lying next to me… >< 1.4g sugar per 30g! That's the chili heatwave flavour though :P

  30. Cassandra Bosquet

    Or adding corn and mayo to it all. Yummy in the tummy apparently.

  31. DuchessRhea

    Yeah, when I first saw the “Cool Ranch” Doritos, I thought I’d never have to crave for home again. Erg. What a disappointment. Though those other ones… I’ve stayed away from them. It just LOOKED scary. Some friends ate it and said it tasted weird. Not spicy. The closest thing I’ve found to Nacho Cheese Doritos is the cheese chips from the brand 도도한 Nacho. It doesn’t taste exactly the same (and you have to chew it without letting it touch your tongue too often), but it’s passable until I find better. Hpmh.

  33. KOREA: Taking your favourite savoury food and adding SUGAR to it!!! Always….

  34. Digitalsoju

    Koreans are always making things that shouldn’t be sweet into sweet. Dorritos, pizza (yuck), and baguettes.

  35. Speaking of chips, do you guys like shrimp chips?

  36. Awe :( What a SAD realization when you bite into something you are hoping for a good flavor. Simon, your expression reads: OMG WHAT DID I JUST PUT IN MY MOUTH, DORITO SADNESS??? Yes both of you had to endure some Dorito sadness for the goodness of SCIENCE and us… Thank you for this video, I will avoid any Korean Doritos in the future. *bleck!*

  37. Erm… usually the ACTUAL cool ranch doritos have less than 1 gram of sugar >.< Wow… that's A LOT of sugar in the doritos. Korea loves their sugar, eh?

  38. hapagirl

    Poor Simon, you can literally see when he becomes a broken man. And wow, seriously that much sugar?
