The Four Cheese Doritos Mystery

Here’s something I found kind of silly, along the lines of The Kit-Kat Mystery. We have a bag of Four Cheese Doritos in our house, and I was curious which four cheese were in these things.

There are actually six cheeses in Four Cheese Doritos.

Why the deception?

How did u find out there were six cheeses? And i guess that 4 cheese rolls off the tongue easier. Wat r the 6 cheeses, this is a very vague ping

Happy holidays there, Ken.

The six cheeses are listed on the ingredients panel are: cheddar, monterey jack, parmesan, American, swiss, and colby.

Colby!

I can't really ad to this Ping, though it raises an interesting point that will, no doubt, keep me up for days trying to figure out this mystery.

While you're all waiting for me to shed some light on the six cheese, four cheese mystery, here's an interesting site about colby cheese.

Well, I don't know if this helps, but the USDA groups American, Colby, and Monterey Jack under one category called "Other American-Type Cheese", so maybe that category counts as one cheese, and then the Cheddar, Parmesan, and Swiss are the other three. Sounds a little ridiculous, but you never know! At any rate, I can't believe American "cheese" is allowed to be called "cheese" at all!

I called doritos a couple of years ago about this. It seems that durring market testing people were overwhelmed by the prospect of six cheeses. So, the decided to go with callling it Four Cheese Doritos, a number people were more comfortable with.
