Nacho Cheese Doritos in Lima???

Postby justbrickey » Fri Nov 02, 2007 6:50 pm

Does anyone know if Doritos from the U.S. are available anywhere in Lima. I know you can buy the 'Queso Atrevido" Doritos here in any store. I am looking for Nacho Cheese or Cool Ranch Doritos.

I just got back from a trip to LaPaz, Bolivia and they had both flavors imported from the US available in their supermarkets.

Let me know.

Hey! Brickey.... I want to go to Lapaz next week.... How did you get there?... I want to take the bus..can you recommend a bus company?.. did you take the bus?.... whats it like?... the fact that they have Doritos is a very good sign.... But I hear there is a lot of crime there however...yes no?.... and in direct answer to your question... I think I have seen Doritos for sale here... in the bigger supermarkets like wongs, vivanda or Metro....but they are expensive....

Yes, you can find them in supermarkets and even in the street kiosks in Miraflores. I'm a huge fan of Doritos but they're not quite the same as in the USA, apparently the Peruvian consumer taste buds require a little sweetness so they add sugar. But hey, its better than going without!
