As the Winter Solstice has darkness linger longer than any other day, Frito-Lay understands that the long night can come with growing hunger. Lucky, Doritos After Dark will open its doors and offer a menu that satisfies.

Created in partnership with PepsiCo Foodservice Digital Lab2 and Popchew, the Doritos After Dark is that midnight meal with some big, bold flavors. As many people appreciate, that late night craving is more than just searching the pantry for snacks. People want more and luckily Doritos is going to deliver.

Available in New York City, Los Angeles, Phoenix, and Las Vegas for orders placed 4 p.m. and later, guests can enjoy one of these bold menu items via Popchew, DoorDash, Uber Eats, or Grubhub. This offering is available through December 21.

In addition, Los Angeles will be hosting a special pop-up event on Winter Solstice. More information on making reservations can be found

According to Stacy Taffet, senior vice president of brand marketing, Frito-Lay North America, “From introducing new flavors like Tangy Tamarind and Tangy Pickle to collaborating with the record-breaking Netflix series ‘Stranger Things’ in one of the biggest cultural moments of the year, Doritos is a brand our fans look to for bold new ideas. By embracing the unexpected, Doritos After Dark has created another moment of inspiration and experimentation, inviting fans to experience Doritos’ boldest venture yet.”

What can guests order from the Doritos After Dark menu?

On the special, limited-edition Doritos After Dark menu, the options are Doritos Flamin’ Hot Cool Ranch Corn Puppies, Doritos Nacho Average Nachos, Doritos Spicy Sweet Chili Chicken Bites, Doritos Cool Ranch Loaded Pita, and Doritos Spicy Sweet Chili Sammie. Looking at these menu items, it is more than just the bold flavors on display. It is about showcasing the food creativity that can be discovered in the snack bag.

Although these special dishes are only available to a limited number of people, many snack fans can hope that Doritos could release a cookbook that shares the dishes. After all, Cheetos had some of these special events and eventually offered a special cookbook with all the tasty recipes.

For example, Doritos Spicy Sweet Chili Chicken Bites would be perfect for that Big Game celebration. Or, the idea can inspire home cooks to take those broken chips at the bottom of the bag and transform them into something else. It does not have to be complicated. It just has to be tasty.

Whether it is adding some Doritos to a sandwich or amplifying the flavor in nachos, the choices are many. Given that Doritos has so many flavors on the shelf, the variety ensures that the plate is never bland.

Doritos After Dark might be a short-lived event, but it is one that will leave a mark. Under the darkness of night, the flavor shines a light. Let it guide you to the table to experience this deliciousness.
