Five Doritos Flavors That Should Be Poured Out for Creator Arch West

​The AP reported Monday that the creator of Doritos, Arch West, passed away in Dallas on Tuesday. West's daughter told the Dallas Morning News that the family plans on "tossing Doritos chips in before they put dirt over the urn."

We're so sad to hear about the passing of the Doritos creator. Doritos have brought us all happiness in sad times and drunk times and high times. And we think the family's idea of pouring some Doritos out for our homie, Arch West, is a great one.

So: Here's our list of our five favorite Doritos flavors, which absolutely have to be dropped in there with our snack chip hero:

Taco-Flavored-Doritos.jpg
​The OG flavor of Doritos was "taco flavor." They brought it back recently as a limited edition. Somebody must have a bag of these they could offer up for the cause, right?

​The best Doritos ever. Pure nacho-y, cheesy genius.

​If you don't have Cool Ranch Doritos, you don't really have anything at all.

​Any of the Doritos Late Night options: All-Nighter Cheeseburger, Tacos at Midnight, Jalapeno Popper.

​Don't care if you have to go to Japan to find them, they're worth it. And so's he.

On behalf of the chip community, thanks for making the snack world a better place, Mr. West. Big ups and a cheesy-handed high-five, dude.

Jugg - The next time you want a bag of Wasabi Doritos you buy them.  You buy them with your money that you earned.  You probably can't find Wasabi Doritos anywhere because you are too busy looking for your manhood.  Grrrr....

Better yet, let the little woman pick you up a few bags whilst out scouring the city for som of that "nutty" Phlegmish beer.

Master of your Domain much? Tell your woman to go look at the tablecloths and shit and handle bidness.

Aha!  The man himself did not like the cheeseburger flavor.

"TMZ spoke with West's son-in-law ... who tells us the family will use Original, Cool Ranch and Nacho flavored Doritos, since those were West's favorite. He was NOT a fan of the Cheeseburger flavor, so those will not be used."

I liked the pizza flavored Dorito's.

Stay hard Dorito's man.

Thank you for all the crunchy goodness you brought us.

No to the Cheeseburger Doritos.  Instead - Spicy Sweet Chile.  Also, Costco sometimes has the Wasabi Doritos.

Alice, what's your take on the bratwursts at the Ballpark in Arlington? What about the pretzels?

Eat a hot dog. Anything else is unamurican.

Unless you eat that three-pound pretzel. (And no, "three-pound pretzel" isn't a sex type euphemism.)

Taco flavor got a giant meh from me. Tasted kinda stale the second I opened the bag. Cool Ranch and Nacho Cheese are tied for 1 for eternity.

Taco Bell has been making tacos with Doritos taco shells in some test markets. I can't decide if that's genius or more cringe-worthy than watching Kevin Ogletree last night.

Taco flavor = stale nacho cheese flavor. Same as a woman.

You may be eating in the wrong places Davy, today's gals tend to have better hygiene than they did in the 1800's.

Those all night cheeseburger ones are strangely addictive when paired with Dos XX Amber.  Every bag is single serving size.

I enjoy viewing past Ate articles with 0-5 comments in each. There are very limited patrons to draw offsides around here, capice? It's food, how many comments would you like from any blogger outside of the obvious, was the food good/bad, bathroom attendant, and did the restaurant valet park?

but boy, those 1-5  commenters, can be drawn offsides so easy. Schutze's articles are the best for that.

Danger happens when the bear is poked..that being said, you can take your fancy pants roasted chicken flavored Doritos and turn them sideways and shove em.

We're in Texas, give me original ..and a bag of Cool Ranch for my bride.

Hahaha..I've never really liked cool ranch, always appreciated Taco flavored over the years myself, especially in a..yes..taco salad ;)...Late Night Cheeseburger is alright as well.

Doritos are best when paired with Flemish beer with dark overtones exuding a nutty quality.

I'd like to take this opportunity to nominate Alice Laussade as the best writer on City of Ate. With your above comment you now have more than Richie Whitt has in the past six months or so. So Alice who would you like to see the Rangers play in the first round?
