Crisp fans, we have some big news: there's an oh-so-moreish new creation in town.
Step up new Doritos Stax, which have all the crunchy, salty goodness of a traditional Dorito but come housed in a triangular tube.
It's basically like Doritos and Pringles had an extra delicious love-child. What crisp-based wizardry is this?
Snacking giants Pepsico announced the launch of Doritos Stax, the cannister-based creation of Doritos crisps, saying it wanted to "give shoppers the chance to try something a little less ordinary" and inject some "much-needed excitement" into the tube-snack segment.
The 170g cans of stackable Doritos come in three mouth-watering sounding flavours.
For the cheese fans, there's Ultimate Cheese. Spice-fiends will adore Mexican Chilli Salsa. For the flavour combo traditionalists, there's Sour Cream & Onion.
The trio of flavours will be available late April as UK Tesco stores and online, each retailing at £2.50.
Personally, we'll be mixing up all three, topping them with some extra mature grated cheddar and generous dollops of guac, sour cream and salsa, and having ourselves a Doritos Stacks nacho night in.
What better way to spend an evening in lockdown?
Clafoutie Sintive, marketing director for snacks at parent company Pepsico, said: "Historically, cannister snacks is a segment that is shopped by the over 45s, but we want to extend that by targeting a younger audience.
"We know that Doritos appeals to generation Z, a generation that notoriously looks for brands that challenge the status quo, so we're confident that the launch of Doritos Stax, coupled with our bold flavour choices and the innovative packaging, will bring younger shoppers to this segment."
Unfortunately, it goes without saying that the Doritos don't count as a shopping essential in their own right, so - under coronavirus guidelines - you'll have to wait until you need to do your big food shop to get your hands on it.
