WTF – Korean Yoghurt Doritos

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. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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… ;-;

  12. 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

  14. 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(?)

  15. 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

    • Then have you tried the garlic bread doritos? That makes my day super duper sad:((

    • This one time in Australia we were walking into a supermarket and 2 Korean girls were walking out and they were complaining about garlic bread here and were like “ugh garlic bread is not good here, it’s not sweet, it’s supposed to have sugar on it”

      ahhhh my husband had to restrain me…

      3 years ago
      • This whole sugar thing makes me think of Mayo in Japan, and I think in Korea too. Kewpie Mayo taking vinegar and egg and adding sugar for fun.

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

  19. 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!*

  21. 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?

    • Ahhhhhhh…. that makes more sense. Well it’s sad that they don’t taste like the normal cool ranch doritios!

  25. 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!

  26. 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).

  28. 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…

    3 years ago
    • 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.

    • M A

      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.

  29. 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

  30. 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?

  31. I think I would still try them all and try not to be too disappointed… I’m just glad care packages are a thing!

  33. 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

  34. 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!!!

  35. 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……?
