What was once feared a PR disaster may end up a delicious marketing win for Doritos after thousands of bags of chips washed up on a North Carolina shore. The chips entered the water after a cargo container holding them broke open and spilled into the ocean.
What’s made this story so excellent is not just the picture seen here, that looks like a crazy person decided to photoshop photos from the BP oil spill, but also the fact that due to the bag’s air-tight sealing, the Doritos are still good to eat!
It’s probably a good idea to wash the bags off and stuff, but come on. You’re trying to tell me that the cleanup crew in the picture – who are likely re-evaluating their place in life right now – didn’t at least try one some chips from an unopened bag?
Despite both classic flavors of Dorito washing up on shore, there appears to be significantly more blue packages than red ones. The most likely reasoning for this is that fish agree with humans in that blue Doritos taste better than red ones.
Hopefully, the bags will continue to come ashore so that they can be cleaned/eaten from in a responsible manner. The ocean already has more than enough trash in it, I doubt it needs any more potato chip bags.
