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.

  2. 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 :’(

  4. 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. 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!!

  7. 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. 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

  9. 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. 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. 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. Time to go to the convenience store and try these!

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

  15. 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!!!

  18. kawaii_candie

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

  31. 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.

  32. Advertisement time!~~

    I’m done.. xD

    I hope you don’t mind guys~~ :3

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

  34. 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?

  39. Herm… I’ll stick to original doritos XD Martina, did you ever post a picture of your completed tattoo? I’d love to see it :D

    I realize “yoghurt” is an accepted spelling variation, but it looks so odd to me. All I can see is yog-hurt. What is a yog? How and to what extent did it receive injury? Things we may never know!

  41. Guys, guys, I have good news!! You CAN get plain (non-sweet yogurt) in Korea!! I buy 매일 바이오 Maeil Plain and it is not sweet. Just when you buy plain yogurt look for any brand that has 5g of sugar or less. It will not be sweet. 5g is pretty standard for non-sweet plain yogurt. AND Maeil Plain is only 70kcal / 90g serving. I always use it to.make raita (Indian yogurt, cumcuber & veg dip).

  42. why is this tagged as B1A4? because of the sugar?

    • “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.”

    • coz they got it at C&U and there’s a member called CNU…i know it’s not the same pronunciation but it’s close

  43. The US version of Cool Ranch Doritos only has 0.1g of sugar per serving.

    You know the Korean version of the Cool Ranch Doritos has more sugar than a serving of chocolate mousse cake (12.0g of sugar). Did it taste that good? lol

    Can we see Lays chips sometime in the future? My boyfriend would tell me about all the strange Lays and Bugle chips when he went to China and he brought a few flavours for me. I assume Korea has weird Lays as well…

    • They do not have lays chips in Korea (unless you go to import shops and buy american lays). They do have a bugle type snack, but it’s not the brand name.

    • Cucumber Lays! Tomato Lays! Chinese Barbecue lays! Spicy Fish Soup Lays! There are soooooo many weird flavours in China…the BBQ ones are actually really nice, and the tomato ones are okay. I lived on the cucumber ones for a while, though they just taste of sugar and coldness and I didn’t like them at all.

  45. Poor Simon… all that anticipation and excitement. All for the disappoint. :(

    But seriously, do you actually ever run OUT of Cool Ranch Doritos with all the chips sent to you? haha

  46. Hahahaha poor Simon! But yeah, I hate it when I can’t find proper ‘foreign’ foods in a particular country. I guess it’s because they cater to the tastes of each population. I LOVE Greek yoghurt and was staying in England for a week. I literally had to hunt down one specific supermarket that sold the brand imported from Greece in tiny, hella expensive pots because everything else was so terrible, gloopy and sugary – even though it boasted in big capital letters on the front that it was “authentic Greek yoghurt!” I have only one thing to say to that: NA!
    The same applies for feta.
    But not to worry, Simon! Your fans have your back ;) But something tells me that you guys won’t be so spontaneous next time… It was worth a try? What did Soo Zee and Leigh say?

  47. Carmen Urquilla

    I’ve tried yogurt candy and pepsi yogurt before and yeah….DO NOT RECOMMEND!!! it tasted sour and sweet it was not a good combination U n U

  48. As soon as I saw the bag I couldn’t help but think IU that sounds so gross. I think the red ones might have been the salsa verde flavor. thanks for taking one for the team :D

  49. It makes sense that they wouldn’t have a cool ranch flavor in Korea. I mean they don’t know what ranch is and from my experience their salad dressings are TOTALLY different from the ones we have in North America, they’re like yogurt dressings….weird. But anyway, it seems unlikely there ever will be a cool ranch Doritos flavor in Korea because it doesn’t fit the tastes of the Korean consumer and therefore wouldn’t do well in the market. But now I really want to try the yogurt flavored Doritos!!!

  50. Martina, could you please, please, please show us how you do your hair like that!? I love it!

  51. I LOVE SIMON’S EXPRESSIONS when he doesn’t like something! The teentop issue on the live chat and then trying nasty doritos. LOL XD But yoghurt doritos did sound good…depending on the yogurt! I wonder if it would be similar tasting to when you dip your french fries in a milkshake……?

  52. My favorite parts of your videos are always your facial expressions heh

  53. What other flavors of doritos do they have? Doritos are my favorite snack so I might have to stock up when I go to SK….

  54. Plain yogurt is used in lieu of sour cream! But I could see where that would be so weird! How funny!

  55. Poor Simon, he was so excited! D:

  56. I loved that little story. Thanks for kicking my depression/insomnia in the balls ^^ (Meaning, thanks for making me happy again c: ) Oh and first ~
