To Dew or Not To Do: SD Woman Tries Dorito-Inspired Mountain Dew

“It’s not that bad.”

That was a San Diego woman’s surprising reaction after taste testing “Dewritos” – Pepsi’s experimental Dorito-flavored Mountain Dew -- on The Ellen Show on Monday afternoon.

“If you like Doritos, you’re for sure going to like it,” Hilary Loretta said. “It’s like a sweet Dorito.”

Loretta’s reaction to the soda apparently befuddled Ellen DeGeneres, who kept poking fun at Pepsi’s new experimental product, which it’s testing first among college students.

Ellen called it Mountain Dew Not.

The sample that Loretta tested wasn’t the true Dewritos; the talk show host brought out a pitcher of Mountain Dew, filled it with nacho-cheese Doritos, and crushed up the chips until the liquid was a bright orange color.

Loretta turned out dubious about her taste testing.

“So you like it? Would you buy it?” Ellen asked.

“I didn’t say I liked it,” Loretta said.

As a reward for her taste testing, Loretta received a Target gift card.

No word yet on when, or if, the Dewritos will be available in stores.

Here’s the San Diego resident’s amusing appearance on The Ellen Show:
