Flaming Hot Doritos Released Nationwide But Somehow Not Yet in San Antonio

Plano-based Frito Lay announced earlier this month that the family of "flaming hot" snackery has grown. San Antonian lovers of spicy tanginess surely ought to rejoice, but unfortunately y'all need to put your keys away and sit back down.

Flamin' Hot Nacho Doritos currently cannot be found at H-E-B or any other area store, per Instacart. Surely someone will recognize and correct this massive oversight, because the marriage of cheeto-heat and nacho cheese has been obvious here for quite some time.

Call your congressman, stake out your snack aisle.

More than a glimmer of hope persists, as it has been reported that the release is nationwide.

When the time comes, please help your friends and neighbors to differentiate between Doritos Blaze, Doritos Spicy Nacho, and Flamin' Hot Doritos. The culinary future is bright.
