PLANO, Texas, April 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Doritos, one of the marquee
brands from PepsiCo's Frito-Lay division, has introduced a bold new mystery to
the snack food aisle. Beginning this week, shoppers will see three new mystery
flavors of Doritos Jacked tortilla chips making their way to grocery stores
nationwide. The fan challenge: if you're bold enough, try all three mystery
flavors and vote for your favorite at As part of
the promotion, bold taste testers will be rewarded for voting, with the flavor
receiving the most fan votes ultimately being brought back to store shelves

Introduced in 2012, Doritos Jacked is everything fans love about Doritos
tortilla chips, only jacked up for a bigger and bolder experience. Forty
percent bigger in size and thickness, the chip delivers a one-two punch of
intense flavors followed by a twist of spice or tanginess that packs the
ultimate crunch. For its Bold Flavor Experiment, the Doritos brand will reward
those who vote for their favorite Doritos Jacked mystery flavor with daily
giveaways of $1,000 — in gold. The "Be Bold, Win Gold" prizing celebrates the
origin of the Doritos name, which translates to "little bits of gold" in

"There's nothing as bold as stepping into the unknown, and crunching into an
unknown mystery chip with over-the-top flavor is one way we're inviting fans
to be bold with the Doritos brand," explained Ram Krishnan, vice president of
marketing, Frito-Lay. "Our Bold Flavor Experiment is the latest example of how
we're rewarding our fans for making bold choices — this time by trying our
mystery Doritos Jacked flavors and voting for the bold flavor they like best."

While the three mystery flavors hit store shelves this week, will officially open for voting on April 29. The
gold prizes will be awarded each day voting is open for a total of 60 days. On
the promotion site, fans can also take part in a bold scavenger hunt that will
unlock clues to the mystery flavor names. The three mystery flavor names will
be officially revealed once voting ends, along with the top vote-getting

The three new Doritos Jacked mystery flavors will be available in two sizes: a
10 oz bag for a suggested retail price of $4.29 and a 3.375 oz bag for a
suggested retail price of $1.49.

The Bold Flavor Experiment builds on the Doritos "For the Bold" global
marketing campaign that celebrates the brand's legacy of empowering its fans
to seize the moment and live boldly. Over the years, the Doritos brand has
done everything from turning over its commercial airtime so fans can crash the
Super Bowl with their homemade advertisements, to most recently rewarding fans
with the ultimate concert experience if they completed a series of challenges
known as "Bold Missions."
